What do yall think?
Its had frame damage, was repaired. But now it looks like it could use some new tires as well as readjusting the hood.

My concern would be the fact that this was a DIY project. Quite possibly....he is a collision repairman or mechanic by trade and did it right. I would call and chat with him. The price is certainly right!!

I am not a fan of the shotty job on some of the lower pics. Is it just me or does it look like he did not replace that one silver brace and just welded it back together? I mean atleast he is being honest but atleast replace bad parts. Also the front of that car has some serious wheel gap. Would be nice to find out if he had the test run that shows every point on the frame etc is in the right position.

The frame recall was done wrong. Good luck changing the oil filter.

Car did a bit over 23k. If it drives straight, the rest can be fixed. If it is what it appears, someone got a hell of a deal. 20k miles? WOW

He repaired the hood, he did not replace it. Looking at the before picture that is not a good thing.

Atleast he seems to be an honest seller. Most people would say the car has a salvage title, but is perfect now. Good for him.

If you spend another 30k on fixing the damage that was not repaired right in the first place you could have a nice car. Assuming that the rest of the car does not have things that need to be repaired.

You get what you pay for, or you pay in the long run.

If you can't afford a non salvage Viper, you probably shouldn't be buying one period. Purchasing this is essentially a burger flipper making $9 an hr. but sporting gold chains and a pager. Plus, when you go to sell this car again you're reduced to waiting on another poser schmuck who's dumb enough to buy up a salvaged car, and after paying off the interest on the loan, you're still only able to sell it for what you bought it for and you're out a couple grand. My advice, if you can't afford a normal Gen 2 Coupe, pick up a Gen 1 or Gen 2 rt-10 in your price range, or otherwise just use the money for college, or furniture, or hookers and cocain....you get the picture.

nothing wrong with a branded title car... IF the frame was repaired correctly (would have to put it on the machine and verify it...) it would make a GREAT trackday car.... why buy a 45 - 50k gts to trash when a 25k on will do the same thing?
its just a dodge....
btw, if you can buy any car and only loose a few grand on it in the long run, your doing pretty well.
