Thanks for the feedback and the congrats Bob.
We did pick an expensive hobby didn't we... Now the long wait to get "florida" car, sold in "California", shipped to "Jordan"...
Am trying to get the service records / history from "The Collection - Coral Gables - Fla" but... doubt that they have any incentive to cooperate (other than selling a part of two). But will definitely keep you posted as things move along.

There is a size limit to these PMs. I ran out of space.
I've never actually bought a salvage car. I do know that these places want the car to be paid for in full and picked up within 24 hours.
If you do buy the car and decide to part-out the car (instead of fixing it), let me know. I might want a part or two.
I have no idea how Florida or Texas works this. Each state is different in this regard. In California where I live, it's just a "Salvage Title" with no further information. The car may have never even been crashed, it could have been old and stopped running then sold to a dismantler and bought back from the dismantler. That "buy-back" becomes a "salvage" car. A car that get's impounded for parking tickets and later sold at auction also receives a salvage title. I think your bigger concern is making sure the car is safe to drive, even if it's a non-licensed track car.
I don't remember the fascia price. One control arm was about $1200 while the other was about $300, both included the ball joints and bushings. There are a few aftermarket companies selling custom body kits. Check into those. You might be able to get a new skin for less money.

Greetings from halfway across the world.
Thx for the feedback re. the 4C on auction. Am bidding on it and would welcome your feedback on :
1- What was the cost for the bumper alone (plastic cover alone)?
2- Being a complete novice to the salvage / auction scene, and other than obvious impact on value, any clues if and how a Florida salvage "repairable" title (car fax report states "no structural damage") affects road registration or title transfer procedures???
Thanks in advance
