Need advice on (sort of) selling my car out of state

I want to sort of lease my car (that I'm still making payments on) to someone in a different state. Am I crazy? [more inside]

I never got a bill of sale when I sold my car, and now I'm screwed. What can I do?

I need some armchair legal advice about a messy situation involving a car I sold 2 years ago coming back to haunt me. I never got a bill of sale when I sold the car- now it's in police custody, and I'm liable for fees and possibly implicated in whatever this car's been into. [more inside]

Can I legally claim my de facto ownership of a car?

My parents bought me a car, but registered it under my mother's name with the understanding that it would be, for all intents and purposes, mine once I could pay back the purchase price. This happened, but we can't transfer the title to my name without voiding the warranty. Is there any way to make this de facto ownership any more de jure without re-registering it? [more inside]

Is there any recourse for being towed for invalid / incorrect reasons?

A friend’s car sat parked legally* on the street outside our house for approx 6 months. It was towed last week for being “parked on the grass” and for not “possessing a valid parking permit.” While there may have been other valid reasons for it to get towed, it was certainly not parked on the grass, nor did it need a permit to be parked there. The towing company denies wrongdoing (obviously) is doing everything possible to avoid responsibility. [MI] [more inside]

Why did the windshield installer ask to work in my driveway rather than the street?

I had a windshield installed by a company that comes to your home to do the job. The fellow who showed up to do it asked me if he could move the car from the street (plenty room) to my driveway, which I agreed to.
Next day, my neighbor suggested that they do this in case the fellow gets injured, and since it happened on my driveway, I'd have to pay his medical bills. Anyone knows anything about this possible set up?
