Bent my gear shift lever

The main road in town has been under construction forever and the other day i hit head on a raised manhole. I was pissed so i kicked a traffic cone when i went by and the cone bent my gear shift lever. On my last rebel the gear shift bolt sheared off a couple times while i was driving and im worried with the bent lever this will happen again if i ignore it. Should i order a new one or can i bend it back in place ? I took a photo ill post it

My gear shift lever bent too when I hit a deer. I just took a 15 inch crescent wrench tightened the jaws down on the straight part and bent it back. Easy fix!

Mine bent more than yours...

The worst that can happen is it snaps, then you are no worse off for buying a replacement one.
