    Nice repair work. Salvage title rules vary widely state by state. Or the percentage does at least. Texas is not salvage title friendly. A total loss may not mean salvage title even if the repair costs are super high. In Texas the pre-tax repair costs have to exceed the FMV of the car the moment before it was damaged. So it's pretty hard to get screwed with a salvage title here. My car was side swiped, not much mechanical damage, lots of cosmetic. Even though the car was deemed a total loss because repairs were *almost* the same as the FMV of the car, it got repaired and has a clean title on it still.

    How much were the repair costs in terms of percent of total FMV?

    Did they ever catch the drunk? I hate drunk drivers.

    What's worse is sleepy drivers... taken with a grain of salt from Mythbusters.

    The repair cost was $5,300. The person who hit my car was never caught.
