Default Need advice,sold car,got impounded,title never transferred

I traded my coupe to a kid, went to the dmv with him turned in a release of liability the same day.He was putting the car in his dads name so he didnt turn in the bill of sale.He got it impounded 2 days later because he didnt have a license,and Im getting papaer work from the tow company stating that Im the last registered owner and even though I sent in a release of liability its going to be my responsibillity when the fees are due,meaning a collection agency will be contacting me.
*Sold car
*never registered to new owner
*Got impounded
*Getting paper work and calls stating the vehicle is my responsibility since Im the last registered owner.
*Wont return any texts or calls

What do I do? I can afford to get it out of impound but I dont necessarily want it.

Wouldn't it be hard for him to re-sell it if the kid still has the title?

as of now 920.Thinking of getting it out and re selling it,I mean I want to give him the chance but at the same time I know he has another civic and his dad owns a towing company that he gets cars thru.So he prob wont pay it and its going to cost me like 2k and the end of the 30 days.car is a 96 dx with a hmo b18b with less than 2k on it since imported b16 trans rotas coil overs on tokicos.I could buy it back and sell it for 2k easily.

and you got that title back in the mail? get the car back and resell it. that's probably your best bet. He's the dumbass that had it towed and now it's being put on you to get teh car out. if he really wanted it he would have paid to get it out already.

So once I go pick it up,will it be possible for him to try and put it in his name since he still has a bill of sale and I sent the release of liability?

Default Re: Need advice,sold car,got impounded,title never transferred

just inform the tow company the car was sold before impound. if you still have the bill of sale, send them a copy or at least give them the contact info for the new owner. i was faced with a similar situation ten years ago: i told them who the new owner was and never heard from them again.

edit: now i see you're from CA. the state or towing agency will probably be able to use some ****ed-up retarded-*** law from that state to bend you over, so your best bet is to contact the dmv and ask them what to do. ****ing CA laws are retarded.

If you have a copy of the bill of sale (which you should), it doesn't matter what they think, you're not liable. They're just trying to squeeze whoever they can for money.

Don't buy it back only to find out it's in his name. Please don't do that. Get a new title in your name ASAP

yea i'm going to go to the dmv to see what they say. If its in his name i'll get something to fax to the tow company. If not i'll see if there's some way to prevent him from putting it in his name once i get it out.
