Looking for History VIN SCCPC11105HL3

Hello, brand new member here. I ran across a Salvage Elise somewhat locally. It appears to have kissed a wall on the drivers side. I know everyone says to avoid salvage title cars but I've always heard that these cars total easily even with minor damage. Car is a 2005 Yellow Elise with ~50K miles. Looks like it was sold at Insuance Auto Auctions INC. The picture the seller gave me has a "000-1482721 03/12/2015" caption on it. Gotta love the 1 crappy before pic the seller has.

If I do actually go look at it is there any Lotus mechanics in or near Kentucky that would know what condition this is in? I was told that the Bonded Aluminum tub can be damaged pretty easily and the car is basically not straight after that. Basically this car has "AVOID" written all over it but I'd rather get into an Elise at <20K rather than >30K.

Edit: Full VIN is SCCPC11105HL33051

I must be an idiot because I was doing a partial vin search and I clearly found a match in the Salvage sticky but my search yields no results?

Thanks, it looks like it's up to 2 accidents now but at least they got rid of the red interior. Maybe by it's 3rd accident they will get rid of that wing :-D I'll probably pass on this one and try to look for one with a cleaner history or at least well documented repairs by a reputable company.
