Nope, no construction site- these hicks actually own a tow company/impound lot. They LIVE in that trailer.

The passenger side of that car is beat to hell, so is the right side of the front end, just past the headlight.

So the odds are the SL is a repop or a salvage.

I know many folks who live in trailers. Not my cup of tea but whatever makes them happy. My guess is they either have NO house payment or it is under $150.

Sometimes circumstance just makes that a realilty.

I understand, i just meant that with the damage you mentioned, and the fact that you mentioned that they own a tow/impound lot the odds are he picked it up as a repop or salvage and is driving it.

We see that around here. Guys will get the cars from the insurance company before they hit auction at a sweetheart deal since they do biz with them. I have picked up several motor/tranny combos that way, buy them straight off the tow truck with the adjuster on the phone with his office.
