I'd take the $$ and fix the car, but do some of the legwork to come out under $4k on the repair.
Wheel is easy. Those wheels are a dime a dozen. If you paid $100 for a used one that would be a lot. You should be able to get a set of 4 16" wheels in good shape for $200 or less. I got a set of 17" Klingons for that. How much tread is on your tires? Maybe you can get 4 wheels with newer tires and save $$ off your next tire purchase. Then sell the old ones or keep a spare.
Door. Find a navy wagon passenger door from a wrecker. Maybe the same car has a good fender. I'm pretty sure the fenders on these are bolt on - if so, it's way cheaper and easier to repair than a fender on a c900!
Hood looks like it is partly mangled also. Again - source one from a wrecker and install.
Corner light and fog light are easy to source from site sponsors (eg eeuro). Same for the casings.
I bet you could do this for <$2k (probably closer to $1k) with a little bit of wrenching. Do you have a Saab indy? If it is all bolt on stuff, they can do the wrenching. Avoiding paintwork from a body shop will save you thousands!
