New rules here in Texas as of Sept.1st...I'm currently focused on a 31 steel roadster sitting on a 33 frame, it does not have a title..All you Lucky Bastards that have been "Grandfathered" on your Builders/Bonded/Storage titles up to Sept. 1st need not read on. I wanted to do the right thing, as I'm going to sell this car someday, after jumping through 13 flaming hoops I landed at the Travis County annex "Stolen Car Task Force" site. They were very helpful but somewhat clueless. They said there were new safety issues to deal with. This is what I understood. If you are using a stock "traditional" frame there has to be a number onnit somewhere. An A.S.E. certified technician has to inspect and sign off on its structural integrity. Lastly, and certainly not least, is they will fail you if they see any kind of cutting on the frame. I managed to get out of him that, in his opinion, boxing and bracing was OK. He also started to move on to the next seminar they were supposed to attend was going to deal with brake issues, putting my 40 model juice brakes in question I'm sure. There was talk of emissions being the next seminar on the new rules agenda. He suggested I go buy a new shop made certified safe frame! Then, the other Sheriff launched into a story about a good deal he had gotten on a horse trailer that had a lost title and Heck he drove that thing around for years! So, I'm lifting the body off the frame and hoping to find a number somewhere on the topside driverside frame rail? Then find an A.S.E. certified tech to sign off onnit? Will any HAMBERS in New Hampshire or Alabama please call me?
