Can't title a car in Oregon unless you have the car at the DMV. I've got a GT that I've had for 3 or 4 years, still has a Washington title.

We use a Subaru Kei dump truck on our farm. Don't know how we ever got by without it.

Yeah, my wife wants a little Mitsubishi just like Bubbles on Trailer Park Boys.

That's crazy. That means you have to drive a car that isn't legally yours, you don't have insurance for, and isn't registered in your name. Or you have to have the previous owner do it.

You are supposed to get a trip permit to take it to DMV. I never do.
Timbo is correct. I can't drive it to DMV because I'm too stubborn to put a carb on it when I'm set on Fuel Injection.

Or you can trailer it. I drove my GT with no brakes to DMV when I brought it to Oregon, but it's only about 1/2 mile from my house. Since it was out of state they needed to verify the VIN.

Colorado has a similar restriction, to title an out of state car, a VIN verification must be completed. To do that, the car has to be present in Colorado.
Luckily, I live in a small town and the local PD will do VIN verification's for free for town residents. They will even do house calls! I haven't tried this yet but plan to do it for my recently acquired '75 1900. Instead of trailering to the PD for inspection, i can make an appointment and they will come to my house. Can't ask for an easier process than that!

My purchase is moving at a glacial pace, but it is moving. OU just got the car titled and registered. The should get the title in about 10 days. Apparently shipping prices were really high over the Summer, but should come down a little in the Fall. He said that he's shipping at least 3 cars, possibly 5, to the East. Mine and another guy's here in Jersey, possibly several others to Florida or the South. Mine appears to be a 1971 car. He got a kick out of the license plate saying "T 'n' A" and had Tammy pose with her big boobs with the plate:
