Is the car on non-op, so there are no late fees and penalties, or the car has not been registered for the last few years and there are many late fees and penalties? In other words, are there any late fees and penalties? (11/23/20 1:47 AM)
A: we can pay the fees/penalties, this is an "as is" sale. (12/8/20 12:12 PM)

Q: This car has not been registered in a very long time. The late fees and penalties are very high. According to my approximate calculations, the late fees and penalties (not including 10% tax) are somewhere between $1200 and $1500 (plus, more than $1000 in use tax, depending on a final price). So, most likely, to register this car will take more than $2500. This info may be useful to the potential bidders. (11/25/20 8:57 PM)
A: We will pay the back fees/penalties. (12/8/20 11:52 AM)

A: We have been unable to verify the year, and we do not know how long it has been sitting. (12/8/20 11:59 AM)
Q: if you are reposting, ,maybe list the correct year, ,even the license plate is telling you it is a 1987 model...the letter H in the vin decodes as a 1987 model... (12/7/20 6:52 PM)
A: unfortunately we don't always have the verified information. We do the best we can with the information we are able to verify. (12/7/20 7:00 PM)
Q: since title is not in your possession I'm assuming this is an abandoned or seized vehicle? are there any back registration fees owed or has this vehicle never been registered in CA? and does the sale eliminate any and all encumbrances, liens, third-party interests since without title there is no way of knowing if any exist ?
