How to: Scrap a shell

Hi a guy on CL is giving away a first gen '79 Civic Shell, I want to take it to the junk yard to scrap.

It's just the shell, no wheels, motor, tranny, nothin... I was wondering about the legal process of this.

I keep hearing the term "v5 form" what if he has no papers?

How would I go about it?

thank you

I don't know how the laws are in CA, but I just had to do this with a 71 c10 long bed that was pretty much just a cab sitting on a frame. It didn't have a title, I called every scrap yard in town and none of them would take it with out a title. They said the only way they would take it, is if I cut it up into pieces where it look like a pile of scrap metal.

There is a lot of theft in Ohio, and a couple years ago, my dad was helping his girlfriend clean out her garage. Since I had the truck, we took my Ranger to the scrapyard to recycle some things, including a stop sign that was found. I was the driver, so I was photographed by my truck with the license plate in full view, so if any of the items were stolen or the missing stop sign caused a death who do you think would be blamed? Nothing ever came out of it but still.

That's a shame your scrapping it. Old shell with new motor and a turbo would be sweet no matter if its Honda, VW, or domestic.
