    This car was actually recently purchased totaled via Copart, had the rear damage fixed, and wrecked again! I've been following this one for a while but didn't know where it went.

    VIN tells all.

    Do you know what is sold for on Copart? I check Copart fairly often, but this one I missed.

    Yes, that's very likely the case.

    Most companies have cheap and good fixed value policies much like Hagerty's model, but very few folks use them. I have one through State Farm.

    Autocheck report is scary. Wrecked, salvage, mileage discrepancy.

    I know it, man. I'm glad I got mine when I did- they're almost unobtainable for the enthusiast market anymore.
