    That's hilarious, especially when you realize that they are tow straps, not ratchet straps

    And judging by the crayon marks on the windshield, it's some type of "CoPart" salvage thing. So I would assume the haulers are russians taking it home to "fix it" and resell it.
    Got a bunch of that going on around here and it ain't quality repairs. Most of them go right back to Copart auctions with cosmetic repairs to make a few bucks and screw the next buyer because its "pretty". Knew a guy that bought a nice looking Toyota Sequoia that turned out to have 2" of bondo in a rear quarter panel and the drivers side floor pan was crushed upwards 3". Front end was totally destroyed and not driveable safely.

    I use to haul totalled copart cars down to the boarder in Calexico where they would get transported accross the boarder into Mexicali and get turned into taxi cabs etc. It's amazing how much damage some of the cars had yet there ia alwaya a buyer for the wright price.

    Can't do that here anymore. Back in the 70's the body shops used to buy write-offs all the time and put them back on the road... some properly fixed, some pretty sketchy. Some time in the 80's or 90's that all changed. Now if they are stamped "parts only" there is nothing you can do to resell them here. Hmmm..... maybe there's an export market in Washington...

    Re: Trailer fail pics

    In the 70s Massachusetts passed a law, any car involved in water got its title revoked. Any car with collision damage needed parts. It got so there was enough need for parts to repair, the flooded cars were selling for more than the car being repaired. I & a friend did a couple BMWs. A salvage yard in Mass. put together packages of wrecks & parts needed to fix them. My friend drove a 320I 12 years after repairing it. My mother kept her 530I 16 years after it was transplanted a new rear.

    No, any car here totaled by insurance has to have a salvage title assigned to it. If it is rebuilt it has to pass an inspection before being licensed, and never loses the salvage title.

    California likewise.

    Daughter was living in Oakland near a BART station with only on-street parking available. We knew whatever car she bought would get dinged up, parked where hurried commuters jammed into whatever space they could find. So she wanted an inexpensive used car.

    In 2010 our mechanic told us a 97 Honda Accord he had maintained since new was now available, 'totalled' with a gouge down the right side. We bought it from him, repaired to original condition. I just looked at some old notes. He paid total $225 for used doors and a fender. Then he straightened the door pillar, and painted to match. It has salvage title, after a roadworthy inspection. Total cost to us, $3,000. Daughter has now driven it some 50k miles in twelve years, with total repair cost so far for a distributor and a radiator hose. Cheapest comfortable transportation I've ever seen.

    Salvage title shouldn't be scary IF you can inspect the car before it is repaired.

    Yep, inspection is the key. another friend picked up a copart Jeep liberty 2wd that was supposedly a water victim. We found no water damage whatsoever but it would not crank, jump the starter and it would fire right up... so I'm under the dash looking for the ignition switch and found... An Ungo box, pulled 2 wires and jumpered them together and bingo, fired right up with the key. He paid a grand for it.

    I had Chevrolet pickup for 20 years very low maintenance. Now I have Tacoma for over 20 year very low maintenance too made in LA.

    I think more how you makes the difference. FYI I use my pickups for hauling welder, steel and trailers.

    Re: Trailer fail pics

    There is a lot more shady salvage vehicle being sold than reputable ones for sure. Buyer beware is cali's law. You buy junk and it's on you, for we have no cool off period. I prefer not to buy salvaged titles unless I know the vehicle before ins co's total it or I can see it being sold during coparts ins loss midigation sales and can see for my self what is required to rehab the vehicle.

    A lot of ins co's screw people over and total a vehicle and get over simply because vehicle owners don't know any better. They tried that $hit on my mom's 92 accourd EX. The vehicle is solid but had a minor front end damage. Bumper lights hood etc and they tried and got denied. Ins is the biggest scam IMO.

    2WD Jeep...

    Price was right, though! I didn't know Jeep even SOLD a 2WD.

    Not sure what the new Jeeps are running, but with the older ones, if you wanted a 2WD, you just stuck 35 inch tires on it and took it off road. Those DANA 35 steer axles aren't much.

    when the IH Scouts came out in the early 1960's, IH thought they would be selling 90% 2WD and 10% 4WD.





    as history shows the exact opposite occurred.

    To be fair, 4wd hadn't been put in production vehicles until almost 1950. I don't know what the sales numbers were like for those early 4wd trucks, but it may have been an indicator for them.

    I have a manual showing the full procedure to convert World War II WC trucks to 2 wheel drive. Manual asserts no civilian would want four wheel drive.

    [Wikipedia] Willys Jeep Station Wagon, Jeep Utility Wagon and Jeep Panel Delivery are automobiles produced by Willys and Kaiser Jeep in the United States from 1946 to 1964, with production in Argentina and Brazil continuing until 1970 and 1977 respectively. They were the first mass-market all-steel station wagons designed and built as a passenger vehicle.[3]
    With over 300,000 wagons and its variants built in the U.S., it was one of Willys' most successful post-World War II models.
    For some time after the 1949 introduction of a four-wheel drive option, the 2WD was sold as "Station Wagon", while the 4WD was marketed as "Utility Wagon".[4] The 4WD Willys Jeep Wagon is often considered the first production sport utility vehicle.
