Should I buy this?

This is a discussion on Should I buy this? within the Camaro / SS forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; Seems like a pretty good deal even though it has been wrecked. http://gainesville.craigslist.org/cto/1129812855.html Edit: Only for parts. Not to drive....

    That's what I was thinking. If there really is only 40K miles on it.

    im gonna say if its got a rebuilt title its had some other damage that has been fixed, now its been wrecked again and hes saying that dent did it. Maybe wrong but dont look like enough damage their to total the car.

    but if the motors right, it dont sound bad at all, but seems finda fishy.

    i wouldnt mess with that thing. it looks like it has lived a rough life. and there is damage pretty much all the way around... you would be better off to just spend more on another one rather than dick around with fixing that thing. it looks like there is a few grand waiting to be spent to fix it anyway.

    i was saying you could buy it and part it out for more than what he's asking. i wouldnt recomend it to someone who is actually looking for a car.

    Yeah I wasnt actually looking for a car... I was gonna part it out and try and make $ off of it. I would never drive something with a rebuilt title. Wrecked cars just dont drive the same.

    I agree sounds a little sketch, but the motor itself would be close to worth it. I'd say check it out to see what you can really salvage from the car since the exterior damage wouldn't be enough to total that car at least not in my opinion.
