Should I buy a salvage corvette?

Hi everyone! I'm going to buy a salvage Chevy Corvette, around 2004-2007 year. I'm looking for one that wouldn't require many repairs but at the same time wouldn't be too expensive for a car with salvage title. Here are some options that I'm cosidering at the moment:
http://www.avtofrom.us/salvage-2005-...CORVETTE-42262
http://www.avtofrom.us/salvage-2006-...ORVETTE-609012
http://www.easyexport.us/vehicle-fin...nc-china-grove
http://www.easyexport.us/vehicle-fin...ge-il-bartlett
My questions are, has anyone dealt with buying salvage cars? Did you have any issues with the cars? After all the repairs are done, will the cost be much lower than if I just buy a new car? And what of the cars above would you recommend to buy? Thanks!

If you want to keep it forever go for it. You're going to have a real hard time selling it later when you discover it is a lemon. Unless you plan on using it for a race car only, I would steer clear.

You can't insure a salvaged title car other than liability. FYI

IMO - if you're not a mechanic, you sholudn't be buying a salvage car
