    Issues with SF-97

    W200: that's exactly the color my truck is under the red paint. Still surprising to me they'd build it with a chrome bumper and silver grille, but that's the way it is. I don't recall seeing any decals on the dash, but the dash was dissected when I got it, and there's evidence of civilian...

    Issues with SF-97

    That was the understanding that I had, as well- that the M880 was pretty much a mid-70s rig. M880 is just what the auction listed it as, it's military head to toe. The fire department painted it red (unfortunately, but at least they did a god job, no sags or anything) but under the hood, in the...

    Issues with SF-97

    Oh yes- I also forgot to mention that the folks at the DMV, the competent, all-knowing people they are- had never even heard of an SF-97 before. I think they were more boggled because they didn't know what to do with it more than anything. Either which way, the ad at the auction was misleading...

    Issues with SF-97

    RTK: Isn't EVERYTHING a crime in New York?! lmao.. One thing I love about AR (I am a Flint, MI refugee here) is the loose interpretation of most anything. NDT: That was right on the mark with what I was thinking, typically when dealing with any government employee, after emailing and leaving...

    Not that I am aware of, doghead. The bonded title agent I used is a little old white-haired elderly lady who uses her skills bonding titles to make a little extra cash on the side for the last 30 years. She is straight as an arrow, and knows the business inside and out. She runs the VIN through...

    Issues with SF-97

    The terms were misleading, as on the website is says "INTENDED for scrap or salvage purposes" instead of "for scrap or salvage ONLY." The description said the SF-97 would be issued on request for getting the vehicle titled, it said nothing about the vehicle having a non-highway use destruction...

    Issues with SF-97

    I am pretty sure they do, and I don't even care if they do issue me a salvage title, really- as this truck isn't going anywhere til I die or it dies- but it does no good to me if they won't let me plate it. It is just nonsense that any such thing was ever put on the paperwork to begin with-...

    Issues with SF-97

    I bought this M880 utility truck from the Oklahoma Forestry Commission just south of OKC back at the end of February. The GSA auction site said Salvage/parts use, and having attended many auctions through the years, I figured this is a sort of disclaimer to the buyer, so buyers wouldn't assume...
