In various sites on the Internet (including your Classified section) I sometimes see a vehicle with a “salvage” title. How does this differ as compared to a “clear” title?

Is it illegal or just a bad idea for a 6- or 7-year-old to ride in the front seat of a vehicle?

My father-in-law told me once that he did remember at least one time snowing in the Mexicali Valley when he was a kid; he was born in 1923. With the crazy weather around the world, I bet it will be just a matter of time when we do get snow here in the Valley. ? Let It Snow, El Centro.
