One of the brothers from deep in the bowels of the former Motor City calls me and says “Reaper I got a 06 650 Burg on the line 10K on the clock no title” I ask “what’s the problem with the title ?” he says :"it’s not hot , the original owner can’t be contacted” I ask “why can’t can’t the original owner be contacted ? “ He says “the original owner is doing life no parole” :rolleyes:


You can’t make this stuff up ............TheReaper!

NOPE ! This is another one that had a different title problem . I turned this one from the prison deal down . That said if the price comes down some I may still get it but I'm pretty much good for now . I've been trying to accumulate a complete set of good plastics , in other words an entire body . Right now I only need a few small pieces and I'll have it .

Why can he not be contacted? Even lifers get mail in prison, unless he is in Siberia or such. He may not want to be contacted but that is different.

I have no clue , I never knew any one who got life . If I do get involved with it I'll have a friend check the vin out first . I knew of some guys who let their bikes go back when the economy hit the skids in 08 , they called the finance co. and told them to come and get it but they never showed up . One guy was waiting over a year and nothing , he even called them several more times and still last I heard it was still there . My best guess is these title problems are not stolen but lien problems ?

In Virginia, there are a couple of legitimate ways to get a title when the original is not available. It might be the same in your state. My brother has a garage and has used them a couple of times. You can apply for a title if a vehicle has been abandoned on your property. You fill out the proper form and send it to the DMV. They will attempt to contact the owner and/or the finance company. If there is no response, they will send you a title. If they respond, they can pick up the vehicle after paying you storage charges or provide you with a title. You can do the same thing with a vehicle you have and have gotten no response for towing and storage charges.

It used to be pretty easy here , it took about a month but I always got the title . I think it was around the first of the year they changed the procedures and from what I understand it's now darn near impossible . From what I understand these loans were packaged up and sold over and over again on Wall Street and in the end no one knows who owns what . :rolleyes:

Sounds like my student loan, it just transferred to a new company, again for the 5th or 6th time.

Like Argentina's debts: A small part of it was picked up for grabs by US finance companies, and now a New York judge has frozen Argentina's accounts, so they can't pay their other creditors unless the US companies get 100% paper value whereas the other creditors only got 30%.

I don't think it's fair, considering they bought the debts for 10% or less than the nominal value.

Their methods is like when Hells Angels buy debts and cut-off fingers as persuasion.

You are right , Wall Street runs the country now . They took over the United States Government without firing a shot , they did it with a very small amount of money put into the right hands .

aka CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS

30 years ago I would never have believed that this could happen , but it has . Until we get REAL campaign finance reform in this country , this will just continue on and actually get WORSE over time .
