1994-945: Worth fixing? 900

My 1994 940 wagon hit a major pothole in town today. There is severe damage underneath.

I need to decide whether the car is worth fixing.

My mechanic (who is very honest) says that the crossmember is pushed back into the firewall. He is guessing the damage at easily $2K, perhaps $3K+, but has not given an official estimate. The car is so old that we have no insurance covering the damage.

We bought the car new and I am reluctant to junk it. The vehicle is mechanically sound, has about 160K miles, and is a B230 non turbo automatic. The body has no rust.

My son who damaged the car actually rode home from from the hospital in it when he was born in 1997.

I would appreciate any thoughts. Would it be worth putting up to $3K into a 1994 Volvo wagon?

Thanks.
