If you look on the back on the ownership, there's a section the seller has to sing when they sell the car... problem is, without etest and certification, it can not be registered under a different name... so it still stays in your name... unless you take it to a graveyard, where they might pay you something for it just for parts (not necessarily a graveyard per se, but maybe a shop that collects your model for parts. Then let them deal with the registration, as they will register it in a different way (name doesn't come to me now).thelefteyeguy wrote: ↑Oct 31st, 2007 5:01 pmI got a question...
Im planning to junk the car and sell it as it (cause it's got 315K on it)
for like 1.5k (hopefully)...for the Shell (it's still driveable ...passed etest in Aug...but definitely won't pass certification since it's got some issues)
Do I still need to setup insurance on it if I'm not going to drive it?...
How to I release ownership so I am not registered to the car?.. after the transaction.
cause it's still driveable...but wouldnt I still be registered to it....and if he gets into an accident...I dont want to be liable.

I see lots of ppl parting out my car...98 EL Premium with leather...but I just dont have the time (patience) or expertise...I wanted to just selling it for $1k or more and hopefully someone else can part it out to make a bit more.13inches wrote: ↑Nov 1st, 2007 10:30 amMany tow truck operators will tow your car away for up to $200 (usually only $40 or $50). I got rid of my last beater that way.
The only way you can make some decent money is to part the car out, and that assumes there's enough of a market to sell the parts. IE: Part out a 92 Civic and everything will be gone in a week, try to part out a 90 Sentra and you'll be sitting on it for years......

that's what Im worried aboutChookman wrote: ↑Nov 1st, 2007 6:48 pmI sold a car "as is" a few years ago (The e-brake cable was broken). The buyer got a trip permit and drove it home - 6 hours away.
Fast forward 6 months later - I get a notice in the mail that my car (the one I sold) was left in an underground parking lot and was towed away and impounded and I owed $400 in impound fees and the car would be scrapped in 14 days.
The guy had never registered the car and because it was still in my name, they thought I owned it. The funny thing is that the guy would have no way of knowing where it was or be able to get it out of impound even if he did know it was there.
I had to phone the local police and tell them that I'd sold the car and I'd never been to his city in my life and that I didn't have the guys name, (I'd moved and lost the info) so the cop said he'd just crush it.
If I'd felt like it, I could have gone up and got the car back for the $400 impound fee. Just the Stainless Steel header on the engine was worth triple that to buy new.
So, as a word of warning, keep all documentation after selling a car as is. Imagine if the guy had committed a crime with that vehicle (hit&run and dump the car etc.). I could've be on the hook for it unless I could prove otherwise.
