Restore or Junk?

So, your family hands a car down thru the generations, an accident has the insurance company claim it totaled. You can't fix the car and get it licensed?

More dumb government overreach, imo. Is it that hard to have an inspector come out and declare it fit for the road?

Solution that works.
Take the car to another State, and register it there.
Then bring it back to your home state and get the title transfered.

It should be retitled as a "Salvage Title" car.

If you can’t get it inspected, & reclassified as a rebuilt title, then register it in Alabama. No titles before 1975 vehicles are required. While you may not live there, from 1980-2012, I registered my cars there, & never stepped foot in that state. They even mailed the tag, & paperwork to me here in Florida. GARY.
