It's an opportunity I'd rather not take advantage of...
For some reason jail seems to be an awfully popular place these days!
I don't get it.
Then again I don't get a lot of car related topics.
So you are saying. If you find yourself in possession of a car that may have been. I guess for lack of a better word .ALTERED.
You may have a problem?
Everybody involved would have a problem if the alteration was meant to deceive someone, for what ever reason.
You make a great point
I just read the most recent New Jersey statute on VIN fraud and alternations
Generally, as per the statutes from various states, there must a knowledge of the alterations, or fraud or intentional fraud in order to violate the law.
Though in most cases, if the vehicle were stolen and altered, and sold to someone who unknowingly bought the car, the buyer would be held harmless, even though they may have to forfeit ownership back to the rightful owner contingent on specific circumstances.
I did research on this a number of years back because in August, 1989 I had a 1971 Challenger RT, 383 - 4p car in blue on blue, no vinyl top stolen from me in West New York, NJ. Car was never recovered.
I still have all of the ownership paperwork and title to the car. Almost makes me want to pursue this again.
A little long shot fantasy may be?
