Yes, it's on the Copart site via the link above. Previous post updated for clarity.

And even then why bother, plenty are on the market. It's a '92 E500, not a 30's Bugatti. It's not possible for this guy to correct this properly AND make it worthwhile for him.

correct... Basically the insurance companies just cut the owner a check for the car because it costs more to fix than the car is worth.

...so what do you do, just blow paint into the wheel wells, interior, and engine bay?
I think cars like these should be fixed. I love w124's. Yes I do have a professional body shop with a frame machine and some other good stuff. Knowing copart this car will go for 7K the way it sits now tho or maybe even 8K. So its just a dream to work on one because I would never sell it for profit after that, and no I wouldnt hack it and sell it LOL. I dont know how to hack LOL Beautifull car and rare.

I was looking at that car for a week now to buy for my small collection. Seriously doubt that somebody will pay 7-8K for it.
