Repairable Dealers
It's worth asking your buddies and local repair shops about any they know about. You can also try googling for 'repairable' plus YOUR STATE NAME

If you take a check for your car from the insurance company, they will auction it off - most likely to one of these dealers - and the dealer will either repair the car, scrap it out for parts or just turn around and sell it at a profit. The car is worth what one of these guys would sell it for!

On line Salvage/Repo Auctions
These are MUCH harder to find - especially ones where you don't have to pay a fee and where they show completed auction results. Search terms: "salvage auction", "salvage pool", "repo auction"

Some on-line localisable (is that a word) used car ads
Local Classifieds
Check for your local news paper on line and ask around.
