I have two questions regarding salvage titles and cars that have been in a wreck.

1. IS there something inherently wrong with a Salvage Title? I saw an auction on ebay for a Mercedes that said "it is a salvage title, so don't bid if that bothers you." What does that mean? Is it illegal?

2. A local salvage yard has a beautiful 87 300SD that has been hit in the corner. The frame looks perfectly straight and it appears that the object that it hit was higher than the bumber and so it just crunched the body and hood.

But I have heard that a wrecked car may be fixed on the outside, but the insides may be seriously affected by the impact. Any truth to this?


81 300D 250K+ (odo doesn't work!)
Want another one.
