Nice car. Is there a process in NC to get a salvage title?

I'm about 15 minutes south of you (winston salem) and I'm very interested. along the lines of what Jime asked, do you know if a title can be issued via Bonded Vehicle title requirements? If I'd be able to get a title for this, I'd buy it this weekend.

If you're in North Carolina you can do a mechanics lien if you're a body shop or a garage. I don't know any other way

According to Carfax it is junk branded so I don't even think anything can even be done

Kinda sad. It looks better than lots of Insights on the road. Great parts for someone with the storage room ;)

If someone out of state buys it with a bill or sale, you could probably get it retitled. I would buy it, if for nothing else but to save it and put it back on the road, but shipping to CA would probably be more than the cost of the car.

I'm not sure how hard it would be to try to get a title from out of state. I guess it depends on your state.

I'm considering buying it for a 24 hour of lemons racecar, but it would be cool if someone out of state tried to get this thing titled and back on the road!

Well in California, it doesn't really matter how badly a car is damaged. If you repair it, and the blinkers/brake lights/headlights work, they will hand you a new title marked 'salvage' and you can drive it on the road. I forget the process, but there is also way to bypass the salvage part, and get a clean title... But It's a federal offense, and thus I have never done it, but yea.

There is nothing wrong with having a "salvaged" title. A vehicle that may have been stolen and partially stripped of parts and then recovered and all the missing parts replaced can be totaled by the ins. co. and then can be reissued a title as "salvaged". Pertaining to CA.

No what I'm referring to, is called title washing, it's where you buy a car with a salvage title out of state, then bring it into CA with only a bill of sale, thus getting a 'clean title'.
