I bought a car from a salvaged company in Sacramento, CA and was going to work on it over the summer, however I was forced to delay on that project. As time progressed, summer turned to fall and then winter, and finally I decided to sell the car. The car was never registered with the CA DMV. Towards the end of 2011, I found a buyer on craigslist.com and I sold the car to him. Now I am getting threatening phone calls how he is "going to sue me" because I do not want to give him the original receipt from when I bought the car in Sacramento. I did, however, give him a Bill of Sale that I printed from the DMV website that says the car is sold "as is," I explained the him how I got it, and so on. I also gave him copied paperworks of the documents I got from the salvaged company, but he wants again, the originals. I feel those originals are meant for me since they have my credit card information on them, and I will need them for tax return.
Now I dont really have a question other than, does that guy have the right to "sue me?"
From what I have been reading on the internet, it seems I sold the car legally with no problem and the buyer received all the necessary paperworks needed to register the car. I also talked to several other individuals and they have informed me that he can not do anything to me (legally) since I followed the DMV guidebook on selling an used car.
