A million thanks for the link! I'm 3 hours north of Spokane and I am for sure going to bid on this through my company.

Somebody needs to keep up with the vin number's of these wrecked (totaled)cars that will end back up for sale, and the owner saying it has never had a scratch on it.

Without seeing the underside, that car's integrity looks sound. Wrinkles and panels can be replaced and repaired. Driver side front suspension is a question mark.

Can you post back here on what you find? Just curious if this car is an easy fix.

Must be some really bad "hidden" damage because there's no way in hell that would cost that much to repair.

I thought the link said engine damage. Maybe worse than it looks. Hope he's ok. What a horrible thing to happen, especially right before Christmas.

Exactly, the break in is not just for the car but for many who have never had control of that much power!

Hell it wasn't until after 6k miles that I comfortably took a turn at 1G.

If you know how and have a place to do the bodywork,and the price is right....this would maka a nice purchase. Though,one may need a frame machine . The engine damage is another factor,also.

I bet this things makes crazy money. It will not be a deal when the hammer falls.

I hope the driver sees this thread and will let us know how he is doing and the circumstances involved with the accident.

Yea, I'd like to hear the story behind this too. Too much car, not enough driver? Steering failure? Who knows...
