Dude, unless you post about 50 pictures, if the damage is extensive at all, there is no way anyone can give you an accurate quote. If it's just a body panel that got banged up...you MIGHT have luck...probably not here.
I'd be checking the phone book for someone that knows how to work on Honda's.

1) You should be looking for a body shop, not a mechanic.
2) Do you own this car? Or are you looking at buying it? Eitherway, the most accurate way to get an estimate on the damage is to take it to a few body shops and ask for an estimate. 99% of body shops will give you an estimate free of charge without an appointment.
And if you find a smaller, independent body shop, you could you do some of the work yourself to save some money. For example, shopping for a tail lamp and installing it yourself would save some coin. And I can't tell if the trunk lid is damaged or if it is just the quarter panel; if it is damaged, once again you can shop for a trunk lid, have the body shop paint it, and install it yourself. Like I said though, some body shops will do the entire job or nothing; those are usually the corporate chain type. And some smaller independent body shops will be more willing to work a la carte, per say; for example, they would paint a trunk lid that you supplied.
As for finding parts for the car, I would recommend junk yards. I would imagine junk yards would be bursting at the seems with Chevy Caprice parts; then again, that Chevy Box 'n Bubble and Donk trend could be driving up demand for Caprices and their parts.
