  • My husband and I are in search of a muscle car to restore and have come across several websites offering insurance salvage vehicles. Most of the sites require that you pay a fee to view the inventory and the vehicles can be purchased with a credit card or money transfer. Are these types of websites legit? Can the vehicle be insured once it has been restored? What types of things should we be on the look out for?
