Your intentional destruction of the secured property would not only be another direct breach of the loan agreement and likely subject to additional financial penalties, it is almost certainly a crime and able to get you in legal trouble as well. Especially if the title isn't entirely in your name (as is done when the place you got it from "totes the note" and still has title), it would be auto theft. Now, if you parted it out and paid off the loan causing the lein, that may be a different story in the end, but only because no harm no foul. What's left of the vehicle would be of far less value and therefore would bring far less when sold, thus increasing the deficiency (the difference between what you owe and what they sell it for, plus attorney fees, etc.). There will likely be a lawsuit to collect the deficiency, thus you will owe far more than you would have and likely far more than you could sell the parts for.

I can can be legally repossessed no matter where it goes in the USA. As long as the repossessor can find the car and identify it as the one to be repossessed. It may not be cost effective if it is a long distance unless the vehicle is of greater value than the cost of returning it and paying someone to do that. They can also wait until you return.
