    And if you still think a salvage title tells the whole story, consider that this is a clean title vehicle (despite air bag deployment):

    Good story, great poker-player. You called and he folded like a cheap suit.

    For now anyway.

    Cayenne involved in 1 accident in Hawaii and then another in Dallas. Perhaps both owners enjoyed texting while driving.

    Interesting to see cars move around once they've been wrecked. I found a GT3RS that looked interesting until I saw it had sustained damage to the left rear quarter.
    Probably ran out of talent at a DE/Track Day. Car originally from California and now in N.C.. It has been for sale for a LONG time.

    It doesn't take much to bend a car nowadays thanks to "crumple zones".
    In the old days the driver flew through the winshield, today the car
    absorbes the hit.

    The old ones really crumpled "better" but "not for the betterment of the passengers".

    The hard surfaces in the early cars accounted for a lot of head trauma.

    If I were the dummy over in Gordonsville driving that '59 I would have jerked the wheel and hit that 2009 head on. Then see who wins.

    My son has a gigantic BMW store. They check every trade on Carfax before they give the customer an estimate on the trade-in value. He said it's amazing how many people lie about their cars. The typical response:

    "You must have entered the wrong VIN"

    "I've heard that Carfax is not all that accurate."

    "There has to be a mistake - do you know how to contact Carfax direct?"

    He said it just goes on all day long. Sellers do lie. Amazing.
