Yes, Folks...we are now proud owners of TWIN Crown Victoria automobiles through my frugal, auction-loving husband. On the left, the newer car, is a 2006 Crown Victoria; on the right is a 2003 Police Interceptor Crown Victoria. The same make, yet slightly different model.
Usually, a new car means a simple, albeit expensive, process of filling out forms to change the title to one's name. Hoh, boy...not this time. Here is the note that was given to us at time of purchase of the 2006 Crown Victoria:
According to Secretary of State, anyone can purchase a vehicle that has a salvage title. The purchaser will have to find a person who has a salvage license/re-builder license and have them apply for new title in their name, which takes up to six weeks. When they get it back from the State, the re-builder then can transfer it to the purchaser, all for a fee...Wha??!!! We need to FIND someone with this special license to get our car title? Instead of a two-step process, it's a three-step process with an added fee for this individual?? What if no such person exists? What if the car doesn't pass the required inspection? Sure, we got this car for cheap, but will we ever ever legally own it? What has my dear hubby gotten us into??!?!
