Guys,

I'm not sure so I'll have to ask. What exactly does it mean when a car has a salvage title?

It means that the car was crashed, totaled by the insurance company, bought and repaired (by anyone, including the owner), then sold again. If the car was totaled by the IC, it must carry a "salvage" title. ;)

Oh, so that could be a danger sign? If the car was totalled then that couldn't be a good thing right?

Say if the buyer didn't have access to a CarFax and bought the car unknown to him that it had a salvage title, there are laws to protect against that right?

Almost, it could also mean the car has been stolen, flooded, etc. On the car fax it shows no accident history, but that doesn't really mean too much.

Where is the other white car? (what dealer)

No the A/B car is still there, $42k.

Checked Web Site

The Stoudt web site does not list anyway to contact them. No phones or e-mail address!!

What gives? Anyone have a way to reach these people?

We need to get the Callaway production number on this car.

Thanks,
Stan

Good News......I talked to Stouts today....turns out the car has not been wrecked according to them. Said it was a mistake by the former state who titled the car. They have been working to get it resolved. According to them it is a straight car.
