It's inevitable. With two major hurricanes reeking havoc, there's bound to be some seedy characters passing flood totaled cars off as 'restored' or 'reconditioned'... Possibly titled under salvage. It's sad that things like this happen, but with a little knowledge, it's easy to avoid becoming someones next sucker.

Now, as popular as vehicle restoration is right now on television, you'd naturally say "There's no way to tell..." but Mechanic Scotty is an automotive genius. Who would have ever thought to peek under the dash? That's not a normal thing to do when looking at a car.

Luckily, there's good people out there who look out for the 'every man.' To them, we all can toss a thank you.
