With a salvage title it's only worth what you can part it out for, if you plan on restoring it to a street driver.
Because now you have no warranty, and can't insure it in many states.

Salvage title is fine to make a race car out of though.

I question why the insurance company bought it and why it was issued a salvage title with less than $3K in damage. That's silly.

YES, I would. Looks like it sold already though.

I agree...it's strange...not sure how/why they got a salvage title on that.

Insurance companies are a little dingy sometimes.

It says reserve not met, and no one even bid, so it may still be for sale. the number is somewherre near the bottom of the page.

here in ohio if you buy a salvage car you can get it reinspected after you complete the work. Then you get a rebuilt title for it. If your a dealer you can fix it to make it road legal or whatever and put dealer plates on it to cruz around!

just some thoughts and ideas!

hmmm that is a possibility, but the dealer never said anything about that. We have to remember that dealers are always truthful, though. lol

I think there is more to this story.
If it was damaged at the dealer they would have repaired it and resold it.
If it was titled and insured there is almost no way an insurance co would have totaled a new car needing very little repairs.
I think I'd stay away from that one, bag of snakes.

Is it possible that the Unibody is bent ?
I seriously doubt that looking at the damage.

A door and some time with a stud puller adn we are good.

I would definitly give him $2500!!!!:lol:
