I dont know why one would have to deal with some company in Lost Wages to get a copy of the title. Apparently, this is some company that specializes obtaining title copies for people. I have no idea why someone could not get one through the Texas DMV offices here. You would think that, as you said, they could apply for a replacement title. There are a lot of things not right about this car. And now it seems, that this car has been around here for some years and is being offered for sale by someone else now.... A ghost that keeps re-appearing!
