Just like "pfcnguyen" i think you need to look really good at the car to see were was damaged and how its been fixed.. if you don't know what to look for i can give some hints: 1. Look for the Vin# on fenders and Hood
, or glass,look under the window moldings if you can see the old paint or just get the car to a body shop and ask them to check the car for you for any signs of past damage. I would say if its been done right the car will look just like before the accident or even better. This is what happend after i bought and fixed my own Celica. Here is the picture when i've got the car and on the next post is how it looks now.
