in NV. even race cars has to be titled.matter of fact i took a couple of junk cars to junk yard to be smashed and they couldn't take them without titles.NV. LAW states if car has a vin plate on it then you have to have title to show ownership of that car..they do not honor bill-of-sales at all.according to DMV a bill-of-sell isn't worth the paper it is on.

I doubt the car hes trading for has a vin. Its a certified chassis car. Which probably doesn't have a vin, subsequently wont have a title. Don't pass up a great deal, since most chassised race cars Ive purchased and sold haven't had a title. It might have a chassis number from the builder which would give it authenticity that it is a home or manufactured car though.
good luck

Default Titles in Ga

Ga does not require & DMV will even try to pursude you not to process a title on a Pre 86 model veh. I have had no problem registering vehicles in Ga with a Bill Of Sale. I have sold veh in Tenn & La where they require a title & they were able to get a Title issued in there state with a Bill of Sell & current Ga registration. Most all out race cars that have been built for a long time have no Vins or titles because not needed to race & not register on the street. We have had several Chassis cars with just a Bill of sell & never a problem.

Just me but I would never buy any type of car with out a title. It just don't seem right and resale would suck.

If the dash and what not is gone and there is no vin plate anymore you can just buy another turd and use that title...if you can find the same kind of car...I was told I just needed to apply for a lost title...If it is a race car /modified car the police can issue you a number I believe...we had a dune buggy once that the title was a mess on...it was made from a VW and was titled as such...the police inspected it and issued a new vin and it was titled as a recreational vehicle.

How do people who build these kit cars from scratch title and plate them? If they don't have an original frame they have to get a vin somehow...

I appreciate all your feedback. I am still on the fence and could go either way. I can't understand at what point someone decides that a title is not important anymore. Even if a car is hacked to just the shell?? I know that kit cars need to apply for a special title. Yes.No.Yes.No.Yes.No....I don't know what to do!!!!?????
