Nothing wrong with salvage... as long as it's been repaired right, and not by me. I wish I could find a salvage title like I want... it'd be way cheaper.

Lev, nice find. I bet he'd drop it below 5K, but I seriously doubt it'll have a torsen.

Sam, a salvaged car is not hard to fix, not neccasarily. If you find one that has front end damage and no frame damage you are set. You need to buy from the Auction directly, not from a reseller. Check out IAAI.com and Copart.com and follow the online auctions to figure out your market and what cars are going for.
Ex: A frend of mine got a 2001 with 50K at the time from IAAI, after repairs and paint it cost him $2700...and it has a torsen.
Good Luck
Dan
