First, glad you're OK.

It looks like the windshield survived, or has minimal cracks, that's a good sign. I'd pull that door off and see how far things are pushed in. The area at the very front of the floor, in front of the door opening, is more telling of damage then the part by your hand.
After pulling the door and fender it will be easy to pull things straight and probably remove the outer rocker skin and replace it with a 'nused' one.
If the car knows the fast way around the track already try to save it! I've seen worse fixed and brought back better.

I'm with jgrewe. My floor looks about like that, and it's not from another car... but maybe that's why the wedge is about 47%?

From just those pictures I say it's OK... but won't know for sure until the door and fender come off. Doesn't look like the rear can be fixed with my front fender trick, but I'd say that's the worse of the two as far as difficulty and labor.

Underwear back from the cleaners the same time? I'm glad you didn't have to train a new car how to go fast. Any pics of the fixing process?

All that will buff out, no prob, it just takes that colored car polish to do it right.
