Okay, I have two project cars without titles, both of which looks like i'll never find or have the original title or duplicate. I went to a place called title works in Lake charles, la. to pick up tags for my truck and I asked the girl there about it. SHE tells me "Ownership is nine-tenths of the law" If you have owned them for at least ten years, and you have a bill of sale, you don't need the middle man, and don't have to chase down last registered/titled owners. Being she isn't the DMV, has anyone else heard of this??......Is this true?
