This place is right next to my customer, so I walked around yesterday and found this:

Yes, it's a salvage title. It was in the Boulder flood. I crawled all over this thing yesterday and the "damage" is as minimal as I have ever seen. Most of these flood cars are packed with mud. This is barely has dust on the inside and you can see right where the water stopped. It never got the bottoms of the seats wet even. It starts, it drives, radio works, t/case works, a/c works...i couldn't find anything wrong with it other than some cleanup. I even pulled the kick panels and checked inside there. I think changing fluids would be a good idea as preventative, but air filter and all fluids I checked in engine bay were spotless.

I suspect it may hit $10k by auction end but sitting at $7,400 as of now.

Nope, I was way off. It hit $12,100 with at least 4 different countries bidding on it. Some guy in Mexico wanted it pretty bad!
