This will depend on the state laws where the car loan was made.

You mention repossess, was the car in your possession while the loan was active or was it being held at their property.

The reason I ask is since most Pawnshops are required by law to hold the item, whereas another business, Title Loans are not required to hold the vehicle.

Either way, you should have been provided with a contract that would show when the default date is/was.

Also in most States both of these businesses are regulated by state laws and would have to abide by these limits.

It's fun and the prices are good Pawn stars is a fake show. however there is a pawn shop in Vegas yes. and it is real and they sell real items. and it does run as a normal pawn shop. BUT what you see on t.v. is fake and stages. i know this because a friend of mine owns the mellow yellow car from the movie days of thunder. and they called my friend and offered to pay him to come on the show and sell his car. they way they work is they will find something ANYTHING and ask the owner if they want to come on the show and even if they do make a deal the original owner will still keep it and there is no money changeing hands. so yes the pawn shop is real and the do function as a normal pawn shop. but what you see on t.v. is fake and staged.
