Can I sue someone for not giving me the title to a car that I already paid for?

Question Details: An uncle of a friend of mine sold me a car for $1000. We agreed on my paying $400 down and $100 payments weekly until the outstanding amount was fully paid. The bill of sale includes the down payment and the payment plan and had a verbal agreement that he would give me the title once the car was paid off. Now we're at $900 paid but when I took him the last $100, he claimed that he could not find the title. A week later he still says the same thing and will not file for a lost title. Can I take this to court to get my money back?
