    Salvage Title Build??

    Looking at my next build and thinking about starting out with a salvage title rig. I was told "if" you start with a salvage from a neighboring state (California) the odds are better for getting it tags, is there truth to that? What does the DMV look for when issuing tags for a salvage vehicle? Any experience building up a salvage rig would be helpful!

    If the vehicle in question has a title, it is registered and will transfer and re-register just as any other vehicle in the state.

    Maybe I misunderstand.... "tags" and "registration" mean the same thing to me.

    All "salvage" usually means is that the insurance company decided the vehicle wasn't worth fixing (normally 80%+ damage).

    Good info thanks! Yeah I use tags and registration interchangeably.

    Cool beans.

    A bit of clarification... A salvaged title means it's ready to be registered. Before you register, you may have to have the vehicle safety inspected, etc..

    You should be fine a long as the wreck was previously titled salvage.
