names nick, im obviously new here. first post. wondering about using a salvage title car for a stage rally car build. if yes, are there any restrictions? if no are they good for any rally applications? i cant seem to find any real answers whether its okay to use them, so i figured id just ask.

Rallying is not racing, in the sense a rally car has to be registered and insured for road use. So if you can legally register a car in your state with a salvage title (usually requires a state inspection), then you're good to go.

lots of rally cars have reconstructed titles
anymore they total a car for minor fender bender, like they said above if its road legal its rally-able



I would rather drive a slow car fast as a fast car slow!

cool. thanks for the quick reply. thats kinda what i was gathering. and it makes sense. road worthy is road worthy, color or status of title is irrelevant so long as it and be registered under the title it has. salvaged and or insurance auction cars seem like a good place to get rust free shells. blown air bags and bent radiator supports or wrinkled fenders total most cars over 10 years old.

sorry i stuck this in the for sale threads and not the construction zone. didnt realize i missed my mouse click.. cant seem to figure out how to move it the proper place now.

I was able to get my 2005 (last year of Mk. 4) GTI on a rebuild-able salvage title. Rolling chassis for $250 bucks. Main reason I started a build is that I lied to myself about it being affordable if I started with a rust free rolling chassis that was cheap enough.

I would most definitely have to disagree. I am currently in competition for the season... as planned; at a total cost of less than 7 grand. And that's with three complete sets of spare wheels And tires. IF I had stuck with two sets of wheels/tires, and used a 2.0 ABA engine or stock 1.8T VW engine; I could have been right at 5 grand. I've spent more than that on a watch.
