Well for $5K I would. Turn it into a track car. Good entry level cost for one and then do whatever you want to it.

Hey Bob, be careful with this one. That upper mount looks distorted and if the extruded aluminum in the mount is straightened it will not retain full strength. If you can go and take a good look at the car and determine that the distorted mount will allow the suspension on that side to be in alignment without straightening the aluminum it might be worth buying, but don't underestimate the cost of all the parts you will need to replace make this car right again. Remember that an insurance company these days will always attempt to repair a car and they didn't total this one for no good reason.

The upper suspension pickup point can all be replaced to save the chassis…it’s the lower ones that make this chassis junk…
