I don't know how it is in your state on cars without titles if you take it in whole you may have a problem. You could cut it up in pieces with a torch but that may be a mess also with the seam sealers and undercoating if any. It might be alot of work for the 50 bucks it brings, but i have done stuff like that for less ...BobBob Wright, Grandson of Tee Nee Boat Trailer Founder

I don't know the rates for scrap in your area, but down here in Fl. they are only paying $1.00 per hundred pounds. If it was up to me I would pass on it unless you got a lot of scrap to take with it. DaveIf necessity is the Mother of Invention, I must be the Father of Desperation!

plenty of sheetmetal to practise on if you wanted to but even as scrap metal as just the outer skin and frame there is not likely to be much wait to get you any $$. you can get about $80-150 for a car here but it all depends on the junk yard you take it to and the wait of the car.
