Got a question about getting a title for a car, that the title has been lost. I've sent emails to the Alabama DMV, but they're not answering me.

If it's anything like here... Apply for a duplicate title if it's yours. If you're buying it, do a bill of sale, walk into the DMV, get the ball rolling on the title. Shouldn't take more than 3 trips.

Is the car already in your name
No, buddy of mine bought a car, and it came with a couple others with no title, wondered how much of a pain in the arse it'll be to get a title for it. I should have elaborated in original post, my bad.

I did enter the vin here, and shows a hit, so it was titled in Alabama. When I checked in the Florida DMV nothing came up.

Well, ...heh... the reason they have titles is to prevent theft. Otherwise, ANY of us could "obtain" a car someplace, and re-title it in our name. You might, just for fun, review this little dance.....

There ARE ways to approach this, but it varies state by state. It usually involves attempting to contact the original owner Some states require a bond "just in case" for a period of time.

You will haft to run a notice of abandoned vehicle in the local paper for two weeks with vin # and a thorough description. And then you can apply for an abandoned vehicle title, with proof you have sought the owner

Yeah, that's why I was hoping for the off chance someone here might work for the DMV, and maybe can find out who last titled it.
