    Default Salvage Limo Availible in New Orleans

    Does not look like a whole lot of damage on this one plus not to many miles. Only down side, salvage title:

    Salvage title? Damage to rear end? Sounds like a repo gone wrong.

    Or it could have been in a flood? Does it run?

    I am guessing that it is a Katrina car. Either flooded during the storm or stolen and looted during the storm. Sorry can't be Katrina car it's 2007. Probably stolen and looted knowing the city like I do.

    I understand selling something "as is", but what's wrong with a little info of why it's salvaged?

    It states what the damage is...it's the rear end. There isn't damage at the rear of the car. It is the rear end. There is no body damage, just mechanical, which is why I asked why it had a salvaged title with a damaged rear end. It still sounds like a repo gone wrong.

    In response to Wade's looting idea, it still has the TVs and radio in it. If they were going to loot it, I would expect the TVs and radio to be missing.

    ccpartybus...yes it does run with an idle of about 850 RPMs as can be witnessed in one of the photos.

    If it has a salvage title in Louisiana it can mean the following:

    1. Major damage that equals the value of the vehicle by collision.
    2. Flood, water that comes over the door sills and covers electrical components.
    3. Theft of the vehicle with major damage.

    So this car was hit and fixed, flooded or stolen.

    You can also get a salvaged title if it sits in a tow lot for a certain amount of time. That means a repo guy could have gotten it, it got messed up in the repo, the bank came to get it from the repo tow lot, found out it couldn't be driven away, and then just left it for the amount of time needed for the tow lot to assume possession of the vehicle and order a salvaged title.

    Heck, it's worth the price just for the parts... nice interior, spare engine/trans, Lincoln electronics, body parts, etc.

    I'm guessing mechanical also, but rear end could mean the passenger cabin of the limo. I wouldn't want to mess with it if it was flooded or sabotaged.

    Digger this auction is on

    Sale Date: 02/03/10
    Sale Time: 12:00 PM CST

    Copart auctions are real time online auctions on the sale date & time . This is just a preview
    the preview prices don't mean anything.The real time auction is what counts.

    Log into copart & get a user name & # ,so you can log into the simulcast auction on 2/3.
    you'll be surprised at what you see.

    There are alot of foreign buyers who ship overseas, & they pay high $$$$ for cars.
    I've seen wrecked salvage vehicles bring more than a ready to sell car.

    A salvage title, 2006 10 passenger white Limo was for Auction in IAAI Florida . The rear end was damaged. I estimated about 4-5k to fix that car properly. That car went for $16500.00 on Jan 26 2010. It had 56k miles on it. Now for some reason, CO Part always bids higher than IAAI. I always see vehicles going at lower price than CO Part.

    I would say, including transport, repair, change of title from Salvage to regular, IAAI fees, that car will end up at $24000.00 at home. There were plenty of bidders but most bidders gave up at 12k and the remaining two bidders took the bid to $16500.
