Question type: Shopping & Pricing

2 door coupe, rusting on front and rear quarter panels. Not running. Linkage broken on
tranny. Project car, was my dream car growing up.. Want to pass it down to my kids. That
was the plan, but put the title in my moms name for security reasons so it was safe. Now
my moms filing bankrupt and they could possibly take it!! It needs a lot of work, but it's a
classic.. I need to find out its value.. And pray I don't loose my car!! I need advise plz..

Courts don't usually look at cars that way. In the condition that you describe it is worth about $250. for scrap to Mom's creditors. I'd have her sell it to you for $300 just to be safe. Take photos of the car, have an uninterested person (Neighbor, Minister, Coworker, etc.) witness the transaction, and get a signed receipt from Mom. All this may be overkill but this way, if there's any questions, all your bases are covered. Be sure to complete the transaction BEFORE Mom files. HTH. - Jim
