Start with looking at the VIN tag . Take that number to your motor vehicle department and see who currently "owns" it. Is it stolen perhaps? Did you get some kind of bill of sale that could help you make it yours? Take a look in Hemmings Motor News for title services that can help you get title. Be patient, as these things can be difficult.

be carefull because the state of nebraska will not accept the paper work from the title companies that advertise in hemmings and other books.you will just waste your money(ask me how i know)go to the dmv in lincoln and for $1 they will tell you who had it titled last in thier name IF IT WAS IN NEBRASKA if it was in another state then you will have to do your own research.hope this helps.

Welcome to the site Charles. Good luck with your title problem. I have a little friendly advice for you. You will find some of the most knowledgeable Chevelle people around on this site but you don't have to post the same question more that once. If anyone can help you they will respond. You just have to give them a little time.

Due to the privacy laws, some states don't allow previous owners info in a title history. If you haven't checked with your state motor vehicle admininstration, that is where you should start.

Abanoned Vehicle, go that route. Just tell them you found an abandoned vehicle and want to claim it. The property owner may have to help you. In Michigan there is a process to do this. I know a trailer park andlord who would do this all the time when the military at the AFB would ship out overseas and adandon cars, some junk but some were good. I guess they just never gave a damm because he got screwed many a time, trash the place thier last day or rent the place to a buddy but keep the money and never tell the landlord.


Nationwide, abandoned vehicles pose an environmental, health and safety hazard. They also lower property values and have a negative impact on our quality of life. The task of identifying and removing junk cars diverts local, county and state government resources from more serious issues such as protecting the public and crime prevention.
Michigan is taking action to protect the public as well as the beauty and integrity of its communities. To help reduce the number of impounded and abandoned vehicles, Michigan passed the Abandoned Vehicle Law, effective Oct. 1, 2005. The law streamlines the procedures for identifying and processing impounded and abandoned vehicles, while protecting the rights of vehicle owners.
In accordance with the law, the Michigan Auto Lost & Found Web site provides vehicle owners, law enforcement and "custodians" (towing agencies, law enforcement agencies and municipal impound lots) with the tools needed to combat this problem.
