I know a couple of model T's and model A's have been stolen this past year. I hope they're found and you don't have to wait as long as this woman did.
She paid $800 in 86, what's that car worth today?
Hummm, Maybe there is still hope for my 1955 Studebaker truck stolen from me in 1972 while I was in the Army in Fairbanks Ak.
I read these type story's and I know it is right for a person to get back what was stolen from them but what about the innocent victims that had bought these cars and had a title in hand,money invested and have lost it all? Where is the justice for them? Sure the thief that stole it in the first place needs jail time. But a innocent person buying it and getting the title that was given to them put in their name has lost a lot and deserves justice as well.
In this case the person in possession of the car had no title, he was trying to get a title in his name. He had bought it at a storage auction and was given a receipt for the money he paid for the contents of a storage unit.I know it inhales vigorously but as always Caveat Emptor! (sp BUYER BEWARE)
Dang! I forgot the most important thought I agree an innocent person should not lose it all and if there was insurance on the vehicle and the insurance company had paid the owner then the car should revert to the insurance company and they would likely "sell" it to the person for what they paid on the claim.
