Re: [DMCForum] Not DMC related... But still effing cool!



This is cool but there's something everyone seems to be overlooking...

The cars aren't automatically his. Possession may be 9/10ths of the
law, but not when it comes to automobiles. Somebody, somewhere holds
legal title to those cars and it isn't the guy who bought the farm.

Yes, if you buy property and something is left there, it typically
belongs to you, but that doesn't hold true when it comes to things
like vehicles which are titled.

Now, I'd imagine if the person who holds the title is dead and has no
heirs and no will, the new property owner could maybe untangle that
legal mess and wind up the owner of the vehicles, but that's a lot of
"ifs" and one bigger if, if the laws over there are the same as they
are here, the cars would then belong to the government.

Chances are, if the cars were left in a welded shut barn and the
current property owner is dead and can't talk about it, then either
the now-dead previous property owner has a stash of titles hidden away
somewhere - in which case the cars belong to his heirs, who sold the
property, not the guy who bought the property and found the cars - OR,
the now-dead previous property owner has a friend who he let stash the
cars there, who may even be dead himself considering he'd probably
have come forward before the land sold, but that friend surely has
heirs who would have inherited the cars.

A simple phone call to the local vehicle licensing office with one of
the plate and/or vin numbers would probably sort the whole thing out
real quick.
