Want reality? Here is what can happen, You have many cars, and life gets in the way, let’s say a move happens, and cars need to be stored, a “friend” offers unused space in one of his garages, so you drive your car over to his place put it inside and lock the door. Checking in 5 years later, he says it is still just fine, not problem, all ok, dont worry, just take care of yourself… So you get back to getting things in order. You build a new garage at you new home and mention to someone that you are going to call your buddy and go get your car, but you are asked, “so, you didn’t sell that car to him? you know he restored it and has been driving it to shows” -----
So here is what I found out… Since The car was inactive, the title was “open” and he was able to declare the car abandoned on his property and no notice to me was was necessary. Car was leagaly his. My title was void. Nice to have friends to offer help.
