No verifiable way to confirm that a block has actually changed hands, 
and not just had its user/POC renamed, sold to 'new' owner to dodge 
bankruptcy/creditors, etc.

And just because a car was bought at police auction doesn't mean it has 
no bad things associated with it anymore - such as drugs in the walls of 
the passenger doors, or the FBI tracking device under the front driver 
wheel well.
