Can the owner take the car and resell it if you have the pink slip or can you get the car back?

Edward, this could get sticky. It depends on a lot of factors; what state you are in,did you sign a contract,are/were you in default of any contract, ect. Most states have a period for reinstatement of a contract(5-20 days) b4 the collateral can be resold. BUT, you have to pay the account current to get the car back. If you cant work this out with the owner, call a local attorney ASAP. Good Luck

You need to go back to the owner whose name is listed as owner on the pink slip. The car registration is still in that person's name.

This depends on what state that you are in. Most states allow you to get a temporary pink slip that same day. If you are doing this to sell the vehicle they have forms where you do not need the pink slip and can still sell it legally and the new owner will get the title.

In California, proof of ownership was shown with the 'pink' copy of the vehicle registration. You could sell your car by signing over the pink slip to the new owner. Or you could bet the pink slip on the outcome of a race. It is gambling and not necessarily legal.

A pink slip is notice of termination. It used to be a pink slip of paper in your pay packet that basically don't bother to come back to work the next week. Now it is used to refer to being fired or laid off.
