    I can't imagine anything salvageable from this:

    Jesus.

    I'm pretty sure that has been burnt beyond the point of it even being considered a car anymore.

    I don't know how they even got it there in one piece without it crumbling apart.

    Out of curiosity I went back to review the photos and couldn't even find one that definitively shows what type of transmission it has (had).


    EDIT:

    Found it! It was like one of those where's waldo adventures.

    Actual cash value $25,000, repair cost $25,000? Like to see the math on that one...

    I'm amazed they actually took the time to photograph and list it.

    I thought this must have been an exaggeration before I clicked the link. You'd probably do better off building one from scratch.
