    camaro with possible rebuilt title??

    I found an 02 z28 m6 with 8400 miles on it and the price is around 13k. This car may have a salvage title, will find out tomorrow. Is this car worth me making the trip to go look at it? If its a good car is it worth me buying?

    No, I used to work at a body shop and we bought many salvage cars. Back in the day before Carfax, you could pretty much clean the title after you repaired the car correctly. Now its almost impossible. Most dealers don't want your car if it has salvage attached to it. Easily it would be worth 30-50% less then one with a clean title.

    I saved 5K on the price of my TA with a salvage title. The repair shop did an excellent job of repairing the car after a minor fender bender. I am planning on keeping the car forever or until the car is a pile of scrap.

    '69 Camaro cp (sold it in '83)
    '93 Z28 ("" '99)
    '84 Z28 turned into IROC clone ("" '01)

    I would find out wht the damage was on it. It if was cosmetic damage that totaled it out thus causing a salvage title, it would probably be ok. If there was frame damage, I wouldn't mess with it. I wrecked my vert several years ago(when it was all said and done it should have been legally totaled out) and it was rebuilt despite having frame damage. I had all kinds of problems with the car afterwards. Just my experience

    As long as you are planning to build it to keep, I would say yes. If you are going to attempt to resale it, probably not a good deal.

    It depends on nothing but the quality of work the shop that rebuilt it does IMO. I'd check it out, and if you think it's good to go, buy it
