my salvage dealers(texas) even told me that they bought a crap load of cars from the north east.
now these vehicles have "Non-Rebuildable Titles"
which means, you only can sell parts off these cars/trucks
this is the legal/reputable way of doing business
many of these flood vehicles are bought by shaddy rebuilders.
most of these are getting shipped overseas where some nigerian could care less about the title from the US....they just know they are driving an american SUV
