Re: help clearing a 907A title
surffly: Before approaching the nY titling agency and saying somehting that could potentially commit you to a particular approach, contact a titling service FIRST.
These titling services advertise in the antique, classic, and streetrod magazines, as old cars typically have lost their title somewhere along the way.
What these agencies do is know and understand the titling rules for all 50 states, and they creatively, but legally, use the differences in regulations to first get a valid and clear title in a state with suitable regulations, and then use that to get you a title in your desired state.
The cost varies with the situation, but appears to never run more than maybe $300, and if it solves a problem, or nets you a betetr title, it is probably worth it.
