How to Clean Salvage Title?

I bought a car at a auction on the net (http://easyexport.us/?a_aid=4bfc2493cf522) and the car had a water-flood salvage certificate from California, the car runs and drives very well, no problems at all. So is there any way possible for me to turn it in to a good or valid drivable title in the state of Texas? does anyone know how?

Welcome to MH. It running fine doesn't change the fact that it was once flooded. The idea of you wanting to clean the title to screw the next person you sell it to bothers me. Vehicles are given a salvage title for a reason. To warn future consumers of the car.

BTW, if you are looking for a reconditioned title thats a different story.

There is only one reason to ask that question...to hide the salvage fact.
