Well. you gotta do something with 'em, right? I take it by "junk" you mean SALVAGE title.

(h) (1) A salvage certificate issued under this section shall include a statement that the seller and any subsequent sellers that transfer ownership of a total loss vehicle pursuant to a properly endorsed salvage certificate are required to disclose to the purchaser at, or prior to, the time of sale that the vehicle has been declared a total loss salvage vehicle. (2) Effective on and after the department includes in the salvage certificate form the statement described in paragraph (1), a seller who fails to make the disclosure described in paragraph (1) shall be subject to a civil penalty of not more than five hundred dollars ($500). IF you mean REGULAR title and junk car, you should be able to sell "as-is" to the highest bidder. LOL

How do you register a car in California with no VIN or title?

It is not possible to register a car in California with no VIN or title. The owner of the car must produce a valid title for registration. If the car is too old and never had a title or VIN, the title can be applied for at the time it is registered. If the title is lost, a new duplicate title can be issued to the person named on the title.

Will I be responsible for getting a title on a used car that I sold in TN they have the car now and the title already but the title they have is unclean the car is 14 years old?

Once you have sold the car you do not have to supply the title . It would be helpful to the buyer but cars are bought and sold with out titles all the time. If the title is branded (Unclean) that is something out of your control. It seems the buyer might have wanted to know that before they purchased.

How can you sell a car that's been in repossession for two years and the creditor has exhausted all efforts in getting it back?

If the title is not free and clear, then the title cannot be transferred to a new owner and it cannot be sold. If the creditor has written it off and it is no longer in dispute, then it can be sold. You can sell it as scrap metal to a junk yard without a title, I believe.

Is it legal to sell a salvage car without telling it to the buyer?

Depending on the state the answer is no. If you are in CA, AZ, CO, NY I know you must disclose that the vehicle has a salvage title. As a private seller you are selling the car as-is but if your car was recently totaled/salvaged but you sold the car with the old clean title, that would be unethical. If I purchased the car from you and later could prove you knew of the salvage title I would certainly sue you and would probably win! What about a if someone sell me a "junk title" car without telling me, and I can show that they knew about it ?

Whole saler sold car no title?

I'm guessing you're asking how to get a title, if your car didn't come with one. It depends the state, you need to call you local Department of motor vehicles to find out. If it helps, in Ohio, you cannot get a title for a car that was sold with none.

You bought a used car and when you tried to trade it in they said it has a salvage title six months after you bought the car?

That means that at some point the car was wrecked so severely that the cost to repair it exceeded 75% of the value of the car. The car was therefore totaled and sold to a salvage yard. The salvage yard sold the car to someone who repaired it and sold it with the required salvage title. You should have noticed the salvage title when you bought the car.
