    Whats the difference between a "salvage" and "rebuilt" title? I thought they were the same thing?

    Rebuilt, just means it's be rebuilt and inspected. Therefor leagal to be driving on the road. Salvage can't be driving down the road.

    In the United States, a salvage title is an automobile title with a notation that the vehicle has been damaged in excess of approximately 70% of its pre-accident market value.

    A "rebuilt title" is placed upon a rebuilt or reconstructed vehicle, which previously was a salvage vehicle but has now been repaired and restored to operation. These vehicles are often severely damaged before they are rebuilt and refurbished parts are typically used during reconstruction. In most states, an inspection of the vehicle is required before the vehicle is allowed to return to the road.

    I had to go thru two additional inspections in order to get licensed... And it took longer to get my title bc legally when I bought the car in OKC it was rebuilt but considered salvaged until I registered in Missouri. Fucked up but eh, the TA has some character. Mine was rebuilt bc it was wrecked in 02 and sold to a body shop wrecked.

    Where to find a bird in need

    Anyone know where I can find one of those front license plate covers with the bird on them. I have my plate on there but it needs to go and when I bought the car used they never gave me the cover as they probably did not have one.
