I can not figure out what you are saying?
Will they not follow through and let you get it on the road?
I think thats what you are getting at?

If they will then who cares what they think of its worth or value?
Everyone thinks we are crazy here really anyway!

Went to the guy who was supposed to inspect it to make sure it isnt stolen, and then issue me a vin. They didnt tell me they think its stolen. I have a bill of sale and letter from the person who owned it for the last 10 years. And yet...for some very unclear to me reason, wont give me a VIN. I want a crying emoticon...because thats what I am doing.

I really know nothing about how this all works, and this probably sounds stupid, but is it possible to sell it to someone here whose state will give it a title and then buy it back after that person gets it titled?

You can buy the die set at Harbor Freight, I'm going to do mine as my vin is slowly disappearing off my label.


This is illegal everywhere because anyone could put any number on any vehicle.

P.S.:
This is one of three threads Meghan's started on this subject, the other two being
Was told my Play Pac is garbage
And, from May- before the transaction was complete:
Hi! I just bought a play pac

I'd suggest these threads be merged to avoid the repetition of advice already offered...

If you read my post, I'm putting the number from my title on my trailer, I'm not making up a number. It is my VIN and I can stamp it as many times I wish, just like cars now have it in multiple places to prevent "chop shops" selling parts.

Duplicating a lawfully stamped, original number is one thing- presumably you can show an inspector the original stamping.
BUT:
Anyone can have a title with a number on it.
You can't just take a number off that piece of paper and stamp it on what amounts to any vehicle you choose that lacks a legal stamping .
What would be the purpose of the system if such shenanigans were allowed?

Francesca,
I do not wish to argue with you and maybe Washington has problems with titles, but here in Pa. the number that is on the title came from someone @ DMV verifying that number existed on the trailer. They then issue a title with that VIN, it is only assigned to you, no one else. You can search VIN# and obtain owners names, I have done it. No anyone can have a title with a vin on it, it has to be visually seen by dmv or state police. Why would I want to stamp my vin on someone else's trailer?
The label with my vin is slowly deteriorating and before it is gone, I'm going to duplicate it in several places, both inside and outside.

As you say, there has to be an original number on the vehicle to verify to begin with.
And I'm pretty sure that VIN's are permanently issued to vehicles, not to owners, and that legally issued number goes on the title.
Even in Pennsylvania.

Not that Meghan has a title, either.
