i rear ended a lady in front of me with mexican license plates this evening, she has insurance and i have liability insurance. My car is so messed up right now, and its leaking a green fluid with some ugly smelling smoke everytime i turn it on. my dad is a mechanic.... thank god. - but what do you think, should i just trade it in at a junk yard and use the money for a down payment on a new car or should i try fixing it? is it worth it? any suggestions?

The green fluid is probably just anti-freeze. It may have ruined your radiator and you may need to replace it. I would have your Dad look at it and see what he thinks. As long as it's not too smashed up and the frame isn't bent, it's probably repairable. Fixing it would certainly be cheaper than buying another car.
