OPINION OF THE COURT.
District Judge. The appellant instituted this case in the district court of Socorro county against *623the appellee in replevin to recover the possession of a certain described automobile alleged to be owned by him and to be wrongfully and unlawfully detained by the appellee. In its answer filed the appellee denied that appellant was the owner of the automobile in question; denied that it had ever wrongfully and unlawfully detained the same from him; and further pleaded as an affirmative defense that on divers dates between April 22, 1918, and May 27, 1918, one Bob Suthern, who then owned said automobile, brought it to appellee’s garage situated in Magdalena, N. M., and at his request it furnished therefor certain oils, lubricants, and accessories, and made certain repairs thereon, of the reasonable value of $128.30, upon which $31.30 had been paid, reducing the amount due to $97, an itemized statement of which was attached to said pleading. The appellee prayed judgment in this amount, together with the establishment and foreclosure of its lien upon said vehicle.
To this answer the plaintiff replied, in which he denied that appellee had furnished such supplies and made such repairs, and further denied that it had any lien whatever on the automobile. He further alleged that on October 16, 1918, he bought the car from one B. M. Baca, who then owned it, and that he had owned the same ever since that date; that at the time of such purchase appellant had no notice or knowledge, either constructive or otherwise, that the appellee had or claimed any lien whatever on the car; that if appellee ever had a lien thereon it had waived the same by subsequently parting with the possession of it. He further pleaded that if appellee claimed a lien on such property under the provisions of chapter 65, Laws of 1917, after parting with the possession thereof as against him, he being an innocent purchaser without notice of such lien, that the said act of the Legislature is void, because it is violative of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as section 18, article 2, of the Constitution of the state, in that it seeks to deprive persons of their property without due process of law. The new *624matter in the reply was, of' course, denied by virtue of the statute.
The case was submitted to the trial court upon an agreed statement of facts in writing, signed by the attorneys for the respective parties. Upon the pleadings and this agreed statement of factsi, the trial court, without making special findings of fact or conclusions of law, rendered judgment in favor of the appellee and against the appellant and the sureties upon his replevin bond in the sum of $97, with the provision that such judgment might be liquidated by delivering the automobile to the appellee within 20 days after the rendition of the judgment, in which event it should, in a specified manner, sell it, and after paying the costs and the judgment the balance, if any, should be paid to the appellant. If the automobile was not so delivered within the mentioned time, then the judgment rendered should become a personal one and execution should issue. From this judgment the appellant has perfected this appeal.
There are but two assignments of error presented, namely: (1) That the trial court erred in holding that the lien of appellee could be enforced as against the appellant who was an innocent purchaser of the property for value and without notice of such lien; (2) that if chapter 65, Laws 1917, intended to provide for the enforcement of liens on motor vehicles after title had passed to third persons without notice of such lien, the same is unconstitutional because it violates the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and section 18, article 2, of the Constitution of the state of New Mexico, because it deprives persons of their property without due process of la.w.
Appellant contends that chapter 65, Laws 1917, is unconstitutional if construed to provide for the enforcement of motor vehicle liens after title and possession had passed to third persons without notice of such liens. The pertinent sections of chapter 65 are sections 16 and 22, *625being amendatory to sections 3333 and 3339, Code 1915, which read as follows:
“Sec. 16. All artisans and. mechanics shall have a lien on thing's made or repaired by them, for the amount due for their work, and may retain possession thereof until said amount is paid, and any person, company or corporation who' stores, maintains, keeps, or repairs any motor vehicle, or furnishes gasoline, oils or lubricants, accessories or other supplies therefor, at the request or with the consent of the owner, or its or his representatives, whether such owner be a conditional vendee or a mortgagor remaining in possession or otherwise, shall have a lien upon such motor vehicle or any part or parts thereof for the sum due for such storing, maintaining, keeping or repairing of such vehicle, or for labor furnished thereon, or for gasoline, oils, lubricants or other supplies furnished therefor, and for all costs incurred in enforcing- such lien, and may detain such motor vehicle at any time it is lawfully in his possession until such sum is paid.”
“Sec. 22. Any person acquiring a lien under the provisions of this article shall not lose such lien by reason of allowing the vehicle, animal or any other chattel upon which he has a lien by reason of allowing the same to be removed from the control of such person.”
[1, 2] Where a statute is susceptible of two constructions, one of which supports the act and gives it effect and the other renders it unconstitutional and void, it is the duty of the court to adopt that construction which will uphold the constitutionality of the statute. State ex rel. Clancy v. Hall, State Treasurer, 23 N. M. 422, 168 Pac. 715; Lucero v. Marrón, 17 N. M. 304, 128 Pac. 485; Sedillo v. Sargent, 24 N. M. 333, 171 Pac. 790. This statute then should not be construed as affecting the rights of innoceht purchasers without notice of the lien if such a construction would render it unconstitutional, unless the language of the statute clearly requires such construction. It might reasonably be said that section 3339 simpty changed the general rule of law to the effect that parting with possession of the chattel upon which the lien was imposed constituted a waiver of the lien, and was evidently enacted in recognition of the usual custom of garage men, by which the owner stores his car in a public garage, purchases gasoline and oil and oftentimes accessories from the garage owner, and from time to time takes the motor or vehicle out and uses it in the pursuit *626of business or pleasure and returns it to the' garage. The act of the owner in taking possesteion of the automobile with the consent of the garage owner does not constitute a waiver of the lien under this section.
The language of the latter portion of section 3333 is susceptible of two constructions: (1) That it was intended the lien should apply as against the innocent purchasers without notice; and (2) that the lien was to be effective' only so long as the garage owner retained possession of the automobile, or so long as title was in the owner for whom the supplies, etc., were furnished, or as against a purchaser with notice.
If the first construction rendered the statute unconstitutional, which we do not decide, then clearly it would be the duty of the court to adopt the last suggested construction.
 The agreed written statement of facts upon which the cáse was submitted to and decided by the trial court was not incorporated in the transcript, and hence is not before this court. With the various issues of fact made by the pleadings, and with the record before us in this incomplete manner, every presumption in favor of the correctness and regularity of the judgment of the trial court will be indulged by this court. Street v. Smith, lo N. M. 95, 103 Pac. 644. Without the evidence adduced upon the trial of the case before us, and the general finding against the appellant being equivalent to a finding against him on every material controverted issue necessary to uphold the judgment, we think such finding is conclusive against the appellant. In Jahren v. Butler et al., 20 N. M. 119, 147 Pac. 280, this court said:
“The testimony in the present case, on which this finding' is based, is not included in the transcript, and is not before the court, and the finding' in this respect is therefore conclusive.”
 We think this rule is decisive of this case. We are unable to determine what the trial court found the *627facts to be. The trial judge may have found that at the time appellant purchased the automobile, the appellee had and held its lien thereon, and that appallant had full knowledge thereof, in which event no other correct judgment could have been rendered. It has been the settled rule of this court, announced in numerous cases, that the findings of. the trial court will not be disturbed on appeal unless there is no substantial evidence to support the same. A citation of the many eases so holding is unnecessary. In view of the condition of this record we are unable to sustain appellants first assignment of error, and it becomes unnecessary to decide the question presented by his second assignment.
For the reasons stated, the judgment of the trial court will be affirmed; and it is so ordered.
