Front clam damage. Some aftermarket parts apparent (i.e. smoked tail lights).

Airbag deployed.

Passenger footrest looks decent.

That one is hosed. The tail lights are just sprayed, so they are stock, and the odds of no frame damage are way too low.

Looks like it's been sitting there a while..and been picked over already. Door handles, overflow tank, MAF, engine covers, seat belts, etc. long gone. Estimated value is interesting.

It was sold for $775.00, so cheap. I was watching the auction and was upset I couldn't pick it up, as you needed a dealer license to bid.

To be honest, i doubt it. The auction had a reseve price but it said "sold on approval" at closing, i hope the seller doesn't accept the offer and re-lists it again on the auction. There was a green one today that was sold for $6K that had front and rear end damage, that one is confirmed sold as there was no reserve price.
