If a car is being sold way to cheap I am always suspicious.

How do you remove your name from a car title that has been sent to a junk yard?

Most states Have a change of ownership form you can send in. This notifies the state that you sold your automobile. Another thing is always make sure the junk yard/junk buyer is a licensed salvage dealer. This is important because a licensed salvage dealer has to send your tittle in to the state notifying them that the automobile was purchased by a salvage deeler, so in turn the auto is taken out of your name.

How does someone salvage cars?

A salvage vehicle is one that has received a certain percentage of the vehicle's worth in damage (determined by the state the vehicle is registered in).

If the vehicle is salvaged and repaired to be sold, it is the responsibility of the seller to disclose the salvage title.

You shouldn't have a problem with getting a title. Just put your information in as the buyer and sign the title. The person you bought it from never titled it and decided to sell it before he did. If its dated, you may have to pay a fine for not registering it in the 45 days given (or whatever time your state allows). Now, if the person you bought it from filled their information in, then he would have to title it before he can sell it to you.
