Using a Title service,

I'm sure most of us have heard of the Car title Mess in Calif,, read this

http://www.sportscarmarket.com/Legal-Files/2008/April/

I have titled several Hot Rods and Collectible cars in the past,, mostly In Oregon,, with no problems,, But Oregon doesn't have the high Tax and fees that some other states have, like Calif. and Washington state,, and several more, So the states [Calif especially]are now going after these owners that have used these Title services to get titles for cars, that are no good .. and most are to owners that have bought these cars believing they had good legal titles,

These states have been screwed out of Tons of money from under estimated value, that the states use to determine the tax,, Now the states are wise to the scam,,and are going after the car owners,, They even got Boyd Coddington [ rest his soul] whether he is the person that titled the car illegally in the first place, so if you have a hot rod or classic car that could possibly have a bad title,, I would be checking into getting it straightened out,, you might get lucky then again maybe not,,

Its a shame that you buy a car of your dreams,, then have some cop stop you and start checking things out,, and if not legal,, you get the title canceled and you can't enjoy that car you spent a small fortune to own,, because of some damn crook out to make a fast buck,,

Oh Yeah,,I would say 99.9% of the title services are using the legal way to do the title issueing thing,, and does it the way it is inented to be done,, its these other guys that found a way to go around the laws and make gobs of money doing these illegal processes. that have left alot of unspecting car owners holding a very expensive illegal title.. They are the ones that caused the problems, and Calif especally isn't going to back down and make it easy for anyone,,, I really don't think a year in jail is enough for this guy, but thats just my opinion,, FWIW

SEMA is working with the DMV trying to come to some resonable sulution,, thank God for SEMA

Just be aware that these bonded titles or "washed" titles are not accepted in every state. If it is a legit bonding or title service, they will tell you straight up when you call or email whether or not your state will accept their title. In fact, many of them post it right on their web sites. Many states do NOT accept these. So before you get too far down this road, check with either your DMV or with one of the legit title companies.

BTW, PA should have a "lost title" procedure in place. You may not even have to pay for the bonded title. The info should be on the DMV web site.
