I would never buy a salvaged title car ... But that's just me
I guess the price is in the right ballpark if it didn't have the salvaged title

Depends on why it was salvaged in the first place. Most likely from an accident. Find out more information.

If its coming out of your uncle's shop, then maybe you can get a deal. Me personally, I'd never buy a salvage title unless the car had been untouched and I was doing the work myself or I was watching every stage.

Honestly ive never heard or seen any problem with any car they fixed, it seem like in the usa rebuilding car isnt any fair commun, it is really not the fact that it is a smash that scar me, it just the resale value and if the price is fair and of course i wouldnt want to run around too much problem with 750whp? Im guessing they can support this kind of power with not too much headache plus 12,000kms is low mileage!, in fact id need to keep the car for a couple years as a toy if i get it, they just finished a 5.0 boss 2012 with 3400km, it look brand new. Anyway i think i wont be able to sell my 300 at this time
Of the year, so ill see..

No way a salvaged 08 is worth 34,000. I just bought a 2008 with 4,000 miles on it for around that much. If you want one loaded with aftermarket parts there are guys selling them between 28-33k. Check out http://www.svtperformance.com/forums...-buy-sell-280/

Here is a specific example of a 700+ HP car for $32.500 with only $21,000 miles on it.

He's asking $33,999 too much if i was going to buy it. Salvage or "rebuilt" title vehicles are a big no-no for me.
