You'll be able to get it fixed for a reasonable price. Strong-arm Sideways into telling you where to find those parts.

And look on the bright side, this impact is going to be what gets you active on the forum again!
Infrequently driving an s12.

That sounds like a good strategy.  Thanks for posting, rhino. 
Should I contact my insurance company and ask them to put pressure on the other insurance company?

I doubt it. If it's the other guy's insurance making the payout then your insurer doesn't have a stake in the game. I had a similar experience and ran the payoff up about 50% over the initial offer which was left as a voicemail. The claims adjuster will continue trying to reach you. It's in his interest to clear off this claim quickly and cheaply, but if quickly isn't happening then the 'cheaply' part of his strategy weakens. You could ask your insurer the max they'd pay if the roles were reversed. But by all means I would keep the car on a reduced payout. Run the number up then take like 80% and keep the car and the cash. Or just give it to me....I'd love to drop that engine into my coupe.

Just got the total loss offer via email, almost a month later. $1,053.
I'm going to ignore them and see what happens.

Wait a while & tell them you will take $1,500 AND keep the car and you will be in good shape

I agree. If they offered $1000 you can bet they know it's worth $1500 and not having to deal with a totaled vehicle is a bonus. Let them call you 2-3 more times before even talking with them. You'll hear the desperation growing in their voices.
