    Yes...you are indeed screwed.

    The motor is most likely hydrolocked; if that's the case it's probably destroyed. You'll need a new engine, or an engine rebuild, depending on the extent of the damage.

    no no no if its hydro locked you may not have to rebuild just have to get the water out of the cylinders it not that hard to do.... just pull all the plugs out and turn the engine over by hand and it will pump just about all the water out of the cylinders... get some new plugs put them in and try to get it started... their is a good chance that you broke something but then again you might get luckey

    strip the car, take it to a vacant lot, pour lots of gasoline on it, light it on fire, go home and call it in stolen, cash the insurance check and enjoy rebuilding with plent of extra money

    you would be soooooo lucky if you did not bend a rod or punch a hole in the block. i would not risk cranking that thing over even with the plugs out. if you did bend a rod and you crank it over you might spin a bearing or 2 or 3 or 4. do the sensible thing and tear it apart. inspect the rods, all bearings, the block itself.
