There are other states that do not issue Salvage Titles. They can be re-registered and a new title will be issued w/o the dreaded salvage term on the ownership papers.

Dateline did a piece on this issue a few months ago, I think New Jersey and few other east coast states do this. The issue that Dateline was *****ing about was the unscrupulous dealers picking up newer model, flood damaged/wrecked/totaled cars, transporting them to other states clean the owner papers by registering them in that state and fixing them. They would then sell them w/o disclosing the write off history to the new owners.

A number of these cars were fixed with major faults hidden behind nice paint and were found to be highly unsafe. Major accidents were attributed to the shoody repairs, etc. Do it fast, because many states are closing the loop hole on these titles.

Good Luck.
