Was the deal with boyd something like he was selling the cars as orginal and in fact they were reproductions with a orginal title???? That would be illegal..
Boyd got busted for Tax reasons. He was selling $100'000 - $xxx'xxx cars and telling the tax people that they were originals, so they would then pay taxes on a $20'000-$30'000 car. All of the cars were legally registered and titled, but the value was waaaaay underestimated.
As far as the Tenn. thing, If I am going to do all of the legwork to get a title, I would save my $200 and have the DMV just issue me a new title myself. Anyone can apply for a lost title, you just have to pay the fees and wait it out, until you get a new one in the mail. The Title Office actually does the work for you. Like I said...the car isn't worth it. There is a long story behind why there isn't a title to the car, I am not going to go into detail about it, but It has to do with family members doing some work for other family members and not getting paid.
