just wondering about this scenario...
lets say u wreck a car
the OTHER insurance company calls it a total loss u buy it back from them...
i strip it and send it to a junkyard
does anyone at this time report to DMV that i lost the car and they erase it out of the system?
I have yet to get a notice to give in my plates (im keeping them for memories)
So basically, are these plates still registered for a 91 VW 2dr hatchback (like it says on the registration)
if no one knows how would i go about finding out?

Report the car as disposed of, keep the old plates, get refund if applicable. You aren't going to renew it right?

Every state is a little different, however in Michigan when I bought my totaled 92 Corrado, I had to transfer the original title from me to the insurance co. and then it was transferred as a salvage title from the insurance co. back to me. The insurance co. wants to make sure the car is not fixed and reinsured through them again.
I think once the title transfers, that the plate renewal is deleted from the system, but like I said every state is a little different
