It had, apparently, a huge frontal collision. Would that turn you off 100%? 50%? Any %? Haha

Personally, I think it looks great, hopes it runs great, and is at a great price.
Hopefully the frame is still intact. Hah. Not my car to buy but I saw it and I thought Id trow it up here for opinions.

+1 to that.

definitely ask for pics of the incident if there are any so you can see how much damage was actually done to the vehicle

First off the price turns me off more than anything. A car with a salvage title obviously takes a pretty big depreciation hit and his buy it now isn't reflecting that.

Regarding the body work, these cars are very easy to repair. Ford sells every replacement part used in the production of these cars. As long as an expierenced body shop did the repairs I would not be overly concerned.

I would first ask for pics of the accident and a detailed sheet showing what was fixed and/or replaced by the repair shop.

If a car has been wrecked that have to damn near give it away for me to have any interest at all.

If it's been wrecked - run away.

JMO, but I personally wouldn't want anything to do with a car like that. It's been wrecked, to what extent I'm not sure, and it has no type of warranty left on it.

The wheels, tires, body kit, tuner, and cai would cost you about $6500 + paint, so if you can find a GT/CS you like for $20k or less you would be better off.. for a 2007 with 12k miles, that is pretty tough.. so assuming that there are no problems with the car after repairs AND assuming you really like the mods that are done, its a good deal. That is assuming a lot though..
