eek FPV Pursuit auctioned today at hail and flood auction, sold for...

Went to an auction today where there were hail and flood damaged cars. A beaut FPV citric acid ute with stripes and 10,000km sold for $29,000. This was flood damaged. Still didnt look like there would be too much to do. Water had been inside, even in the instrument cluster. The engine was full of water! I guess its a pot luck thing, as long as no one tried to start it full of water, maybe it'l be an easyish repair.

Does water hurt airbags? computers, wiring, etc? Wiring and computers should all be pretty sealed i would think?

A GTO Hsv coupe sold for 47,000 and was not in running order! Thats a bit steep!
A Porsche boxter sold for 40,000
A BA XR6 nearly brand new sold for 26,000 but had been flooded! It did run though. I dont know why anyone would pay that!

There were heaps of Brand new Mazda 6's with maybe 5 or 6 or 7 km on the clock. They sold for 24,000+ They did run i believe.

Commodores even though they were stinking and their engines full of water went for near their normal trade in or private sale price! I dont understand how stupid some holden people are! Its not worth the risk unless its for half price or less i would say! No other car were getting such prices! For eg a comparable 98 EL would cost maybe 4000, and a 98 VT would go for 10.000!!

All the trade and people who knew the costs of fixing these things were laughing at the public buyers, couldnt belive the prices, saying most are around 30% over what they should be worth!

The insurance companies would be laughing! They say a flood writes off $10million of cars, when they sell them and the get $9.8million back!lol so doesnt cost much at all to them in fact!

If it's been submerged - expect to change everything electronic in the vehicle - or you are guaranteed trouble.

Why do you think the insurance companies write them off? If a $50k FPV Pursuit is cheaper to write off than fix - that is sending a clear message - buy one at your own peril.

most car that are dunked are a write off. If your skilled they may be a bargain but expect all the space junk to be fried. Whats not fried will have a litany of corrosion and contact problems its a big job to repair.

Re: FPV Pursuit auctioned today at hail and flood auction, sold for...

the Au Xr went for 12.000, which was a bit dear if you asked me! The interior wasnt flooded though, so no water behind dash(good), however the engine was full of oil and water that looked like cream. It wasnt running. It was a VCT one with IRS.

One car which i thought was worth buying, and i'm annoyed i didnt!!! :-(!!! Was a Volvo red 1998 850R (180kw,150mph,7.0 to 100!), which had no interior flooding, looked perfect outside, engine wasnt running. Went for $11,000!! They were about $80,000 when new in 1998! Dam dam dam!!!I think they are a really classy car!
Also another that had no interior flooding, but just engine troubles was a beaut Alfa 156 Monza V6 with the bodykit, 17 inch wheels, leather, 6speed manual....2002 model, 25,000km, went for $20.000!! Thats a $50,000 car!! Someones laughing there!! (big deal if you have to spend $2000 on the engine!!)

Re: FPV Pursuit auctioned today at hail and flood auction, sold for...

i'd still buy a flood damaged car,it'd tear it apart dry out everything,get the elec parts etc tested,then i'd rip the motor part and do a rebuild,everycar that water damaged is fixable,if you know what your doing its no biggy..

some of them prices are way too steep though..
