Funny thing is that damage doesn't matter much in high-end cars either.

Would you pay less for a Porsche 917 just because it was in a (well-documented, televised) crash (while piloted by a famous racing driver)?

Would you pay less for a McLaren F1 that was crashed by a British celebrity and rebuilt at the factory?

Of course not!

It tends to matter most on low-end cars where damage can be the difference between an old car and a clunker, and on mid-to-high-end cars where the repairs may be suspect and there are enough out there to go get a better one.
