In Maryland, if it has a salvage title it will always have a salvage title. At least thats what I have heard. You get a salvage cetificate, and you take it to the police and they determine if it is roadworthy and then you get a salvage title.
Here in Cal. a salvaged title is the kiss of death. No lending instution in the state will give you financing. So after shelling out your hard earned cash, you now have to take it to your ins. co. who will either refer you to the auto club or a state safty inspector to deterimine weather it's roadworthy. If it fails, you just bought a very expensive paper weight.
A couple of years ago a local independant dealer picked up a Lamborgini Diablo with a salvaged title. He thought he could turn it for a quick buck. Turns out he couldnt give it away. It's been sitting on his lot for about 2 years now with no takers in sight.
