I came across a guy posting to various groups on FB that has had some cars that have piqued my interest. I contacted him and found a car I was ready to buy, and when I asked about the title he stated he could get a title on any old car. For context, this guy appears to have a lot of acreage with a couple hundred rotting old muscle cars. He’s made numerous posts on fb selling cars, some he mentions have a title, others he doesn’t. He seems to do quite a bit of business on fb as he posts cars every week. Now the scenario is, upon questioning him, he stated it would take 3-4 weeks to get a title for the car. I asked if he could go ahead and get the title for the car, I’d even front the money to do so, and when he had the title I’d come and close the deal. He stated “no, because I’m running this through my dealers license.” In other words, I was to come get the car, hand over the cash, then expect the title mailed to me in 3-4 weeks. Now, I’m 99.9% certain this is a fools gambit. However, I’m wondering if there is some bit of information I’m missing regarding purchase of an old car that would mke this standard practice. The way I see it, I’m most likely buying a car, never getting the title, completely unable to ever get the title in my name, and essentially left with a car I can never legally drive and register. I asked the seller to explain this process to me and he never messaged back. (Writing on the wall...) with all that said I see the guy apparently selling cars daily through Fb so I’m wondering if anyone with experience can enlighten me on the process that makes buying a car like this a safe purchase?
