    Interesting. The write-up makes it seem like there's not much wrong with it, but if it were totaled, there might be something nasty hiding in there.

    Right, I'm curious to see post damage photos from the original thread, looks like some additional work was done

    Very. If someone gets it for 29k they are in good shape.

    I don't have any proof of this, but I think every day the "Hacking a Tesla" thread is adding value to salvaged Tesla's.

    That car used to be mine. It was declared totalled, but just had some front end damage and a broken suspension arm on the right rear wheel. I could tell you the entire history--up until I last saw the car on July 5, 2014.

    Incidentally, there's a little bit of cosmetic damage on the car (like the dented front quarter panel) that was *not* there after the accident!
