Unhappy wheels won't align?

I have a 1992 325iC that was in an accident before I bought it, supposedly fixed, but not.....the frame is bent. However, I've been driving this car for almost 6 years now, only in the summer w/top down. It's an E30 (1992, but all parts are really for 1991).

Last year, the shocks were replaced, so I went for a wheel alignment at a BMW place (not the dealer) and they told me that the rear wheels CAN'T be adjusted. Mine were bowing out like / \. They said that once I start rolling, they'd straighten out. Well, they haven't straightened out, and I have uneven wear on the tires. Not sure what to do though, any suggestions? Can the rear wheels be adjusted?

One more thing I should mention.....the wheels were fine before replacing the shocks, and there was no uneven wear on the tires previous to shock replacement. Please help!

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
