If the title was in the Salvage Yards possesion and was in there name then i don't think theres anything you can do. It may already be a salvage title. Not worth the time and hastle to get another one. If the title was still in the previous owners name and still clear then you can get with the DMV and say that the vehicle was left on your property and you want to see if you can get a title for it. I have heard that some DMV's will send a letter to the last known owner and if they don't respond in a certain amount of time, then the car is free and clear and any back taxes or liens will be owed and it will go to whom ever files for the title. (this is all word of mouth, so don't take it too seriously) But it is worth a shot if the car is really too good to junk. You just have to get with your DMV and see what you can do. But don't say you picked the car out of a salvage yard...dead giveaway to not getting a title for sure.
Some say "If it aint broke, don't fix it" I say "If it aint broke, break it so you can fix it anyways"
