In their online ad for the car, they are using Copart's pics taken when it was on Copart's lot. They are also selling a yellow 1980 Esprit and its pics are also from the Copart ad from when it was on their lot. I don't know anything about that outfit; think I don't want to.That's it.
I understand what your saying, however buying a used or even a new car is a crap shoot anyway you look at it. Since I know the story behind the car I just wanted to see if he would tell the truth about it and he did. He could have tried to snowball me and left out the fire details unless that information was posted on Carfax then he would have to owe up to it. I do not have access to Carfax so I cannot check out those details. The reason I made the call was because I wanted to see if he would tell me what I already knew.When the car was on auction at Copart, Copart listed it as having a salvage title. How "nice" the guy is whoever he is is not material.
If I remember, at the Copart site there is a link for information about title branding and a caveat that it varies state to state. Crap shoot indeed but at some places the dice are.... well dicey.What I would like to know is if the car was issued a salvage title how he told me it would be issued a 'clean title'. I have heard some states can do that, again which one's and how I do not know.
