1. I would never recommend buying a car with a salvage title. A salvage title can mean anything, but simply put tells you that it was either totalled by the insurance company or unfixable by the last owner. 2. There is no easy way to estimate the value of any automobile (especially without being able to inspect it directly) that has a salvage title unless you restore vehicles for a living or on a regular basis.

another thing to bear in mind is that trade in value is typically half of what an undamaged car would be, and the prices are usually only 2-3000 less than a legitimate car- builders tend to have more electrical and other repairs needed down the road than an undamaged car also. remember, it has had to have more than 70% of the car's value in damage to total it, so that is a SIGNIFICANT amount of damage, not just a little fender bender. my vote is no also.
