Default restored salvage title on a 98rs?

has anyone ever had any experience with a restored salvage title? i had to sell my 05 RS because of payments/insurance being too much, and i got a civic hatchback. on the local honda forum a guy is selling a 98 2.5rs and he wants to trade me, i paid 3200 for the hatch and have put a couple hundred bucks into it...but it has a restored salvage title due to collision/accident. it would be a straight trade, here is a link to the vehicle...

thoughts? opinions? things i should try and find out? i wanted an older RS in the first place, but couldnt find one...well heres my chance. im just sketched out on the title.

sorry if this is a stupid or repeatative thread, i just figure id ask here where people would have a better knowledge on subarus specifically

it could have a salvage because the damage was more then the cars worth... in that case if kbb says the cars worth 1000 bucks and dmg is 1001 bucks then insurance will total it out. the car looks pretty damn clean. make sure if the car was hit in the rear that everything lines up. and when its going down the street that the back doesnt look like its cocked a few feet to either side while chasing the front end of the car.

well i know for a fact it has a restored salvage title, im not sure on the restored part or if theres a difference between a restored salvage title and a regular salvage title. im just wondering if anyone has bought a car with a salvage title and had any problems. it would be awesome if a subaru tech could give some input. thanks for the reply!

and to me it looks like it got rear ended or something. it couldnt have been TOO bad since the bumper/door/trunk are all still intact.
