Friend almost bought a well maintained Mini Cooper S for his son at a very low price with no Title. Easy to do in NC.

Abandoned Vehicles

There are several options available to an individual when a vehicle has been abandoned on their property.

Local law enforcement will verify that the vehicle is not stolen and place a seven-day warning sticker on the vehicle advising it will be towed if it is not removed.

After seven days, the property owner may contact a tow company to remove the vehicle.

If the vehicle remains on the property unclaimed for 30 days, it is considered abandoned and the property owner may begin the process to sell the vehicle.

How to Get an Abandoned Vehicle Title in North Carolina

A person may walk away from a vehicle if it won't start or isn't worth the money owed on it. If the car wasn't left in a public place, such as the side of a road or a park, property owners can claim these abandoned vehicles to fix, use or sell. To verify ownership in North Carolina, you must first contact local authorities to clear the way for an abandoned vehicle title application with the state's Division of Motor Vehicles.Difficulty:Moderately Easy Instructions Call the police using the local department's non-emergency number. Request a check of the vehicle identification number to make sure the vehicle has not been reported as stolen. Schedule a time for an officer to meet you at the l

Wow,

Volvo owners overspent during the holidays and are trying to get some quick cash?

I recently said I would only consider Volvo such as XC90, S80 and C30 without the kid size back seats. This include the 98 S70 T5 I used to own although the backseats were ultra comfortable or the S60 but some are just too nice.

It doesn't seem like a bad process to get a title in NC. I haven't actually gone through with it, but I've multiple no title cars that I wanted to try it with.
From what I understand, it's as simple as getting a bond, then filling out paperwork. Lots of paperwork...

That green S70 looks really clean, similar condition to my 2000 GLT. I'm excited to get that car done soon, it should be great to drive. Hopefully I don't get attached to it, I need to thin my herd!

That could be a cool car for $2k! I'd have to see it in person, but that sounds like a great deal.

The fender mirrors are interesting.

Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Lynn, MA. 10 miles north of Boston. I live here so I could check it out for someone if that would be a big help.

I think a temp tag was on that vehicle, and since most folks can't buy a $1,000.00 Smartphone, chances are the loan company would own it.
