I had an old juncker nobody wanted to buy. So a tow yard said thay would junk it for free. A year latter D.M.V. wants me to register it. The tow yard never reported to D.M.V. That this car had been scrapped. What can a person do to get D.M.V. off my back P.S. Top it all off,the tow yard says thay have no record of my car,.thay Say i must haven taken it somewhere else, and i have no pappers from them too pruve it.Thats what D.M.V. wants. Any ideas....Would appreciate it..

DMV can't MAKE you register a car. Just ignore it, or if you wish, just write "JUNKED--NO LONGER OWNED BY ME" on the registration invoice and send it back to DMV.
the only way DMV has any control over what you do is if you don't register a car you DO own, and then years later, try to register it. Then they hit you for back reg.
Whenever you sell or junk a car, you are supposed to fill out a form notifying DMV who the new owner is. Obviously you either failed to do this, or you did and DMV lost it (happens, believe me).
