Thanks for the info.  The deal is that my nephew's dad gave him this 
'69 Mustang like 10 years ago (my nephew was doing body work at that 
time) ... the car has sat in a garage all these years, and NOW he's 
decided he's probably never gonna get to it and he has someone who's 
interested in buying it.  Silly bit of a mess, but whatcha gonna do, 
eh?  I guess he discovered there's no title and is trying to learn what 
to do about it.

Anyone ever see this?:
