By driveable the guy means that the car will roll on its own and the front wheels will steer, not that the driver side headlight is about to fall off, lol.
We got this crap all the time in FL...

Looks driveable to me.

Little duct tape to hold some of the loose pieces on and I bet it will be fine.
