Re: Abandoned Volvo
It's kind of remarkable that the motel owers have never even bothered
to lock the thing (speaking of children playing on or in it.
To cut right to the chase, one would have to wonder what the motel
owners would do if the car just disappeared. Call the cops? Why?--it's
not their car. Maybe the owners came back and got it.
Hypothetically speaking, (and I don't think I'm going to do this),
what if I simply went and took the thing. Took it to my house, about 60
miles away. And then I just called the authorities and told them the
story, how it's been sitting in a motel parking lot for over a year,
very obviously abandoned, the owners of the motel refuse to touch it or
address it in any way, and how I sent the car's owner a registered
letter offering to buy it which they recieved and signed for and never
replied to, and how I've checked with the DMV in the county where it's
registered and determined there is no lein against it.
And how I'd now like to have them declare it abandoned and apply for a
title in my name.
Seriously...what would happen to me?
