Worst case scenario? Mmm, $2000-$4000 dollars, but I'm not a body specialist. I'm usually pretty accurate on stuff like this though. But again, this is if things have to be cut off and welded in, heavy stuff like that. Probably will be less than your $1500, but not by much, probably need some suspension work done. I STILL say you shouldn't drive it though, you can still be wearing out that tire if the alignment is off, don't kid yourself. And something may be cracked and ready to fail, and if that happens you can lose control of the car.
