    I see websites selling nothing but wrecked cars like from insurance companies to people. Are any of them worth buying?

    My family used to buy, and repair salvage cars as a side business.

    Yes, many are certainly worth buying. They can be repaired, and they're just as good as any other car out there.

    Watch out for fire and flood damage, and naturally, don't buy anything that was wrapped around a pole or heavily damaged in a rollover.

    Everything else is surprisingly rebuildable with the right shop involved.
