    Is that the one that drifted into the old restored Chevy at the car show?

    I think the one you are speaking of was in California. I could be wrong though. This one is in Georgia.

    Anyone notice the latest bid on that car? $18,500!! I think it's getting to be more than it's worth.

    I mean sure, yank the engine and put it in a nice Dodge Dart or something. Sell all the other parts on the inter web...but you're still paying a ton for that drivetrain!

    The bids will go sky high towards the close of the auction in 3 weeks. Just wait. Some idiot will pay $30k for it thinking they can fix it for cheap.

    This thread title seems much more appropriate for what it actually is......the other seems to point to chipped paint on a front facia or the like...

    The scary thing is someone probably will fix it dirt cheap and some sucker out there will buy not knowing it's a p.o.s.:eek::eek::eek:

    Just because it's crashed and fixed doesn't mean it's a POS. There are some guys out there that do some darn good work.

    It will show up in the history too. The insurance company paid the loss. That will show up on any car history service.

    Any late model hot car tends to go for way to much at auction. Sometimes people get caught up in the bidding, other times somebody wants to fix it for themselves. In my state you can't even bid unless you are a dealer. They try to protect people from their own stupidity thinking it will be a quick and/or easy fix.

    I agree with you to a point if someone pays top dollar or above top dollar then most likely they will cut corners fixing it to make a profit and that's what I'm referring to because profit is the name of the game to them. People who buy cars and fix them for resale buy low so they can have money to fix them and sell them for a profit.
    I agree just because it's a rebuild does not mean it's an automatic p.o.s. but buyers must always be cautious. :)

    WOW only 400 miles somebody was not ready for the big boy car ( or big girl )

    huge shame. I doubt it can be fixed for 28 K ? There is a lot of damage! I can't image the hidden possible damage.


    I would bet the paint and body work from a lot of places will be as good or better than from the factory. Problem is when it gets into the hands of a part time "flipper"who cuts corners on the repair in order to make a buck.


    Then you have a POS.

    With an estimated damage of 26K that means it doesn't take a lot to total a hellcat. It doesn't seem like insurance companies have the stomach to get deep into these cars, especially if the engine is possibly damaged.

    That's weird because they are saying estimated repair is $28k and it doesn't look know where that bad. Makes me wonder why would they total it. Is it a flood vehicle?

    No, it doesn't show flood damage. It looks like a fender and maybe a front bumper. It says that it runs and drives. That would be a good car to buy, repair and beat the crap out of.
