It's probably a flip. There are a lot of kids around here that buy them wrecked, fix them as cheap as possible (including copious amounts of filler), and try to get near market value. It's almost like a plague.

How the hell does an "Auto Broker" know if a 13yr old vehicle (with a rebuilt title) has ever had pets or been smoked in?

If he knows it's never been smoked in, he might know where the engine cover is.

Ads like these prey on the ignorant!

^I'm more interested in how he expects to get $10,000 for it. It's decent as a clean title... horrible as a salvage one.

this thread is hilarious. i would stay away for any of these vehicles. too much shady business going on with salvage titles. i'd rather pay a little extra up front for a clean vehicle and not run into any surprises down the road.

Good eye Jay, I missed that!

I wonder how long before we see the purchaser on here posting that BMWs are HUGE POSes.

Why all the salvage title postings with extreme prices? These go for 10k (or a lil more(sometimes)) in my area not being totaled at one point in its life. Are we poking fun? Or do you think these are good deals?

How did the seller manage to get it posted on CL without VIN disclosure?

I would think these salvage/rebuilt sellers buy a few wrecked/theft recovery/flood damaged E53s, then build a "Frankentruck".
