    As you can see with the springs, under extreme heat the metals properties are compromised. I would not trust the chassis!

    I was referring to the actual VIN Number (sorry, OCDers) moreso than the actual plate.


    The only other reason would be some sort of internal Ins. Co. paperwork requirement that stipulates that a written off car has to be advertised for X days in an attempt to recoup as many $ as possible, irrespective of condition.

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    That's what I was thinking too. You don't even know the condition pre-order damage either. I wouldn't risk using it.

    Hmmm... Maybe a little bit harder to rebuild than the Vixen, but still doable.
