Default Where is a good place to find pranged motors?

Given that we don't give a shite about dent as long as the chassis and wheels are straight it seems to make sense to but cheaper pranged motors.

I have browsed the web and get lots of used car sites and lots of car scrap page sites.

Anyone found anything good for in between donors?

Please list websites, locations and real world experiences.

I was on the lookout for a pranged car but found a straight one for just 720. It just needed it's sills doing (which I did myself).

That's the kind of thing, just needs to be auto and preferably 2.8 which is where the price goes up.

I will be scanning ebay, gumtree and other places for bargains but if there is a place specialising in light crash damaged cars it would be useful to know about it.

I know this isn't exactly Tribute related but If you need an auto due to your bruised toe and you want to build something interesting then:

and

What can possibly go wrong?

www.copart.co.uk salvage auctions all over the UK free to view register to bid, cost me 50 as I viewed a MK 2 MX 5 with minor damage front and back but I dropped out of the bidding as it got too high, lots of Eastern Europeans bidding and exporting for spares, this was at the Kent site in Sandwich may be better elswhere.

Interesting.....they shorten it by 5 inches, adding stiffening tubes to the sills, but then say it is free from IVA. Sounds like chassis mod to me.
