Default Repairing a totaled WRX?

I was wondering if I could get a hold of a totaled, WRX or STi if it would be worth my time and money to try and restore it to running order? I have a place that i could work on it at that is inside, and have access to almost any type of tool that would be need to repair a car, but im just not sure if it would be a good idea to try and fix it or not.
Thanks,
Chris Bakey

Have you ever done body work? drilling spot welds, welding in panels, mudding panels, sanding? If a 2002 or newer car is totaled it most likely will need massives amount of work, front or rear clip maybe a quarter, and a frame machine to make it straight again. You dont learn mudding, sanding, and painting techniques over night. Repairing a totaled car is best left to professionals. Maybe look for a flood vehicle/ recovered theft car.

Depends on which car, I suppose.
