Well said! you should be able to save up to 5k if it was fixed, and fixed RIGHT.i have to disagree with these posts
to some extent, they are never 100% ORIGINAL!!!
but they can be fixed by the right person(shop) to be the same as it was, thats why they sell parts!
if you don't plan to resell then there is no issue on resale value, not that it matters w/ supras anyways, guys seem to name there price for the most part.
and as far as salvage cars, i bought a xterra, the one i've been driving the past 2 1/2 yrs and it was totaled, and i am a bodyshop so it was easy for me, but i saved about 10k at the time and im sure alot of guys w/ the same thing are still making payments!
so as far as saving money its the best way possible, if you have the knowledge and resources to get it up and running below a flat out purchase.
and im sure guys out there say an auction is better than a rebuildable
my opinion on that is at least half those cars are there for a reason(headakes)
yes there are good deals there , but its hit and miss.
a rebuildable car was being driven down the road at the time of its mishap and the owner probably had no intention of getting rid of the car!
thats my 2 cents!
