Years ago I used to buy salvage cars, do them up and sell on. It was surprising just how many cars which insurance companies had written off came up as HPI clear.

I think you would die! Very Happy frustrated ditto with the seats!...

Does not make sense, you can pay around 95K for a left hand decent 991 GT3 and it's up for 75k!!

iirc If you know the V5 number it can be taxed on-line, assuming that MOT and insurance are also in place.

Without that I think you can use a V62(?) but need to apply for a V5 at the same time.

Tbh this whole ad' seems well dodgy underlined by the £30k asking price.

Surely, under both the old 'Cat' rules and the revised ones, a Cat B write-off should never legally be used on the road again.

Agreed. You usually end up reading about cars with this type of history being crushed... I'd steer well clear. Unless you intend using it as a track weapon or something?

From RAC website:

Category B (unchanged):

Body shell should be crushed. Signifies extensive damage, although some parts are salvageable. Should never re-appear on road, although reclaimed parts can be used in other road-going vehicles.

Whos going to ask for before, during and after pics of the damage and subsequent repairs. I'd do it, but my tolerance for bulls**t is quite low and can't be bothered with the dribbler.
