Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Therefore, it wouldn't matter if you waxed the crap out of the car and made it shine like the sun. The car's VIN numbers will always have the collision statement with it. There is no legal way you can ever get the car's history wiped clean if it has had a dirty past.
Not sure how your state works but when cars in MN have titles that are rebuildable or distruction or Salvage I believe they have to pass an inspection of some sort that deems them to be safely driven again & it not a real big deal but obviously the re-sale wont be as good. sounds like a few more hoops & you ll be driving in no time.
It sounds like a "Certificate of Destruction" means you can't put it back on the road. Ever.
1. The vehicle MUST be dissasembled, parted out, or crushed.
2. You can get a Rebuild or Salvage Title after inspection.
Im going to the DMV today to see what the truth is.
Sure hope this helps.
. but anyways i'm just wondering how much was done to kind of compare the damages.
. The only other problems are that is need a new clutch, power antenna makes noise, and one headlight doesnt come up but those problems are not crash related. Ill post some pictures asap. btw, it was only a fender bender, hit a trailer hitch on a truck at maybe 5-10mph
i would be pissed at your insurance. thats the exact same thing i did with my DSM. of course i am pissed. but i haven't had my fixed yet. i just bought another car and i plan on taking parts and everything good like that. but nothing happened to my title and my insurance hasn't even gone up....yet haha. so i am really confused about that...possibly its the state. OH and uhave never seen ghetto rigged cars like your talking about till u have lived in Alaska. i am trying to get some pictures put on here soon and u can see the damage that occured to my car. maybe u should deffinetly check with your insurance company. maybe it had something to do with what u hit....i hit a mini van in a parking lot bcuz the stupid moron of a driver figured he had the right of way....
This is my advice and I am telling you this from experience, A tow truck company can tow cars and then re-title them if the person does not come to pick them up legally in the state of fl.
Well with that said you might want to befriend a towtruck driver and see what they can do to help you out. If you cant find one I know a guy who did my motorcycle for me and it took about a month because you have to leave it with him etc etc, but its legal and he then will sign it back over to you with a clear title. If thats not an option from what I understand car dealerships can do the same so find someone with a dealer license and see if they can help you out.
Hope this helps some....
Have you asked at the DMV what needs to be done? They are the governing authority in these matters.
Then you no longer have a car. Period. You have a pile of scrap.
, wow you last two guys are really helpful. Your doing a great job of keeping people interested in DSMs. There are ways to get around a Certificate of Destruction. You have to WANT to and you have to work hard to do it, its not going to be quick or easy but it is possible. To everyone else thanks for your advice, im going to keep trying.
