Speaking of Copart...

Note the custom bumper.

Looks intact. I can't bid on stuff in Delaware for some reason, even though their yard is like five miles away.

+1 on what they sell, my guess is there are dealer consignments mixed in too.

Probably due to state restrictions on salvage buying. DE might require a dealer license.

As for that car, it looks pretty decent. What's with the "junk receipt" title? CA is weird.

Somebody may have taken the poor thing to a recycler, like a stray dog. CA has some goofy thing about back registration fees unless it's off the road. Or something.

IAAI auctions not assigned yet, still probably only makes sense for folks who can bid direct and locally. V8s seem to be pretty rare beasts.

That last one looks like a good start. Pretty minor damage.

Looks like at least a pair of metal containers full of parts. Makes you wonder what the Dealer really told him.

2007 Volvo XC90 V8 Sport - $5,400 - A little pricey? Don't care for those wheels either.

Looks good overall. Maybe a little expensive for the mileage, but not too crazy. It’s a V8 Sport, those are pretty rare. Those are the Sport 19” wheels. My mom’s has the same ones.
I’d be going over it with a fine tooth comb... timing cover/valve cover leaks, alternator/idler/tensioner noise, balance shaft bearing noise, and transmission shift quality.
