It's been up there for a while. They keep lowering the price a little bit each time it doesn't sell. It's a huge pain to buy from copart if you are in CA and don't have any types of auto dealer license. You have to have an auto broker to buy it and I think you still get a salvage title from what the guy at copart told me.
So the copart fees if you bought this for 500 is an additional 285 bucks plus at least another 200 bucks with a 400 dollar deposit for an auto broker to buy it for you. Now you're looking at almost 1,000 bucks for one that's hit in the front end and who knows what else is wrong with it.
There was a nice one in Vallejo last month with 27k miles on it and was going to bid on it. They didn't post how many miles online and would only know by going and looking at it. I realized as it went to live auction, that I couldn't bid on it. Sold for 125 bucks. Was hit in the front end but would have fixed it. Just seems like most of the time, it's just not worth it for most of the insights in CA for the normal buyer.... in my opinion.
