So about one week ago I discovered an abandoned Celica in a parking lot at a grocery store. The body is in bad condition and it has around 180,000 miles. It has no license plate, and no registration or inspection sticker. I want to take it home and start rebuilding it, but I don't know if it is a crime to take an abandoned car in North Carolina. What should I do cuz I want it reeeely bad...

try to get the vin # and you could do a car fax report - or call police to ask - i'm sure it is a crime every where if you take things that didn't belong to you - even if you take it how are you planning to get a title for it or registering it for that fact --

Or, they'll tow it, give it sufficient time to have the owner claim it, try and contact the owner, then auction it off to cover the costs.

yea i agree with all of you... i need to go to the police, but i don't want them to tow it... i don't even see why they would, because it has major exterior damage and smells really bad cuz hobos have been sleeping in it on cold nights... also, i was maybe hopin to get a salvage title on it if its possible

Legally you got to go to the dmv and apply for an abandoned car title. After a certain number of days, if no one claims it, its yours. Right now if you take the car you have literally stolen it.
