I noticed the following car just listed in Woodbridge Ontario. The salvage company is looking for $28,500. Says the car ran under a truck.

First Choice Auto Salvage Ltd. 200 Regina Rd, Woodbridge, Ont. (905)264-2277, ask for John or Nicky.

2006 Arctic Silver
36,000 miles
San Antonio, Texas

Damage "repaired" cosmetically and will likely be for sale at an auction or on the lot at Lotus San Antonio. Car is a lemon, was in the shop almost as much as it was on the road. Buyer beware.

Check the VIN of the Lotus you're considering buying

SCCPC11165HL34530

seen on ebay. right side had an oops. slight body damage to front clam, rear clam has a chunk out of it.

front and rear wheels on right side had chunks out of them, this hit something solid with a bit of force. Make sure to check the right suspension ft and rear, seller says the suspension and frame are OK, but doesn't say how he reached this conclusion. Was it eyeballed, or actually checked by lotus dealer. Seller is offering repairs as part of the sale, only to bodywork and wheels. right door does not line up with rear clam about 1/4 inch off.

suspension may be fine or a cheap repair. door had some damage so its probably the door that is tweaked, could be the post that the door hinge bolts to, thats not so good.
