Can you drive a salvage title car in Kansas?
I bought a wrecked Ford F-150 and finally got all the repairs finished. It’s in good driving condition now but has a non-highway salvage title. Can you drive a salvage title car in Kansas?

You can drive a salvage title car in Kansas, but you’ll need to get your non-highway salvage title transferred to a salvage title so you can register and plate your pickup.
To get your Ford F-150 ready for the road, you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Vehicle inspection: Take your truck to a Kansas Highway Patrol motor vehicle inspection station for a motor vehicle examination. You’ll get a pink paper copy of the motor vehicle examination record to keep, called an MVE-1.
- Update the title: Take the MVE-1, proof of insurance, and your old non-highway salvage title to your county treasurer’s office to apply for a rebuilt salvage title.
- Register your vehicle: You can complete your Kansas vehicle registration as usual through the county treasurer’s motor vehicle office.

How many cylinders does a Dodge Charger have?
My divorce was finalized last year after a long separation process. My husband always insisted I drive an economical car, and I was so bored. But once I was free and clear of that ball and chain, I treated myself to a muscle car. Unfortunately, its engine performance hasn’t been great lately. I spoke with a mechanic, and they said it was likely an issue with one of the cylinders. They asked me how many cylinders the car has, and I had no idea! How many cylinders does a Dodge Charger have?

I like cigars, whisky, large cuts of meat, hot weather, and my very large collection of white loafers. I also like my new 2022 Chrysler 300, which is the replacement for my dearly departed open-top Cadillac El Dorado. In my spare time, I’ve started to tinker. I was poking around in the engine bay and wondering: how many spark plugs does a Chrysler 300 have?

Is there a 2015 Honda Fit battery upgrade?
I’ve had my Honda forever, and it’s been reliable until recently. Now it’s hard to start, especially in the winter. I’ve even had to jump the battery a few times. I’ve heard people say that the battery in the 2015 Honda Fit is notoriously weak. So is it possible to install a bigger, better one?
