Yes. The ebay listing that showed that pic was just a little disingenuous!!!

I'm sure the car is fine, but the asking price was way high IMHO.

no offence to anyone or their friends but this guy does not state what salvage title definition is, he gives his own tailor made defiition, as a matter of fact he leads you to believe this car had only minor damage (with his definition) where we see in fact it is properly a salvage car.
Also an owner can buy back the car at auction just like anyone else.
He goes on to say that insurance gets good money for salvaged cars...ummm no, I have watched cars go through those auctions.
If that were the case he should sell his car at one of those auctions.
And regarding Victor, check the racing section and you will see how these wheels come apart when stressed and the manufacturer won't even return calls. Avoid Victor like the plague!
Run Forest Run!

And yes IMO this car is overpriced, especially with 2 salvages on title.

i got the impression the criteria in CA for ca titled car is much like if not exactly what this seller listed as the "salvage" caveat. i didn't bother to double check the legalese lol. he does attempt to claim *minor* damage while clearly that isn't *minor". so we agree on that as well as "victor" wheels.

i'll never need to know ( for obvious reasons ) the exact boilerplate wording of
salvage title but i did think ( again ) his WORDING of criteria was accurate while his DESCRIPTION of said car was not.

..and yes, this car is ( i also feel ..) is overpriced. so it seems we agree on all points.

I believe salvage is when an insurance company decides to not pay to have a car fixed, for whatever reason. It could be that the car was flooded and from their experience flooded cars can have problems from the flood down the road. Or it could mean the cost to repair was above their criteria for repairs (where I live it is 70%). It means that they decided not to fix the car.
