Insurance totalled the vehicles, the govt has nothing to do with them. quit with the dramatics.
alot of these cars were damaged by salt water (i.e. flooded), the fly by nites buying them aren't going to properly clean them. fix and flip to make a buck.
You can have all the pos's you want, first thing that pops up is always electrical problems. small wires and salt water= big problems a short while after. They also have a way with scrubbing titles clean.
happens every damn hurricane or storm on the coast and the shysters end up screwing unsuspecting people in the central part of the states and elsewhere.
crush the flood damaged pos cars and have it done with. Our insurance already paid them off, turn them into little metal shards, plain and simple, before insurance pays them off twice, if you could even get it insured.
