    A little give a damn goes a long way too. If you have a car "unbalanced" on the rack it's pretty obvious when you do the shake test a few inches up.

    This is the way I was taught at age 16 at the American station I worked at while in high school. Never dropped one.

    Was talking to a local guy that bought himself a c8 in the fall. He said that red one happened when it was very new and after it was totaled- sold at auction for nearly msrp!!
    Obviously I have no way of proving or disproving that claim but damn man who would pay msrp for a wrecked car???

    sure...I guess the better question is WHY would you spend that much on a wrecked car, why you can buy the new one not wrecked for the same money

    Likely bought by a scrapper who can make up the $$ by selling the parts at a premium.
