tennessee,good ole tennesee,easy title state,as dealer,i recall the days when title mills would retitle 1000's of cars that would then surface with way less miles,heck,there were some towns that sent more cars to the auction each week than there were poeople in the town! (most of these guys were locked up a whileback)
on any car with a siqnificant value,its a good idea to have a history on it,for example,if 2 vehicles were around and titled with the same vin,who would own it?
if someone surfaced with an old document,and you have no chain of ownership,would they have a claim?
good idea to have a history
as a kid,i used to get a big kick out of all the 79 caddys from cleveland,tenn at the auction,12k miles,not an original tires to be found!
