    This peice of crap state I live in is trying to rape every dollar they can out of me. They are threatening to put a lein on my '48 for back registration even though the car was non-oped 4 years ago. I am planning on retitling the car anyway. So my question is this, the lein is on the vin right? Not on me? It won't come up when registering other vehicles will?

    Just wanted to make sure befor I get sassy with them on the phone.

    LAZ, they use the state franchise tax board...They will pull the fee's right out of your paycheck !
    If you have the proof of non - op, gather it up and go fight it !
    If you have no proof....It's their game and you are going to pay. IMO (from personal experience ) Take care of it now ! It only gets more expensive as time goes on..

    might specify in the subject line that you're in California, because each state is different

    Pay it if you cant find the non-op. They get real ugly then real mean real fast.
    You will reel from what they can do. I had issues with a 46 military dodge and it was fierce what this "little lady" had, power wise. She probably had young men "put on the lotion" iffn ya get what I mean.

    Hey Ryan...someone must be messing with you, or complaining about the car. I had my F-100 on non-op (obviously in CA) while I was in Wyoming, being broke, getting married, etc...

    The truck was always in storage, but when I finally started the registration up again, I just paid the current year and was good to go. Mine was on non-op for 10 years, and remained "in the system" the whole time...

    Good luck buddy, let me know if you need any help...

    What happened to the land of the free? You know the one I went to war to protect? Hearing about this stuff so much these days makes me sick.

    In the county i live in in florida,if you have a car in your ,it has to be tagged or registered,or you can pay the county $100 dollars a year and classify it as being restored,just another way to get the dollar out of our pocket.unless you are a an ass kissing politician you can"t beat the system!

    Yes, you can fight city hall, but the odds are you won't win...............If I planned on keeping the vehicle and driving it any time in the future I would bite the bullet and get the paperwork current. "Yes ma'amm, how much and when?"

    I have not heard that one. I have been working with DMV and the transportation dept for 30 years+ thru Idaho's collector vehicle lobbying organization and never heard of that one.

    well back in the old days you didn't need insurance to register a car, and registration was cheap back then. when it fell out of the system you lied under oath saying it had been stored at whatever address you have it at now and registration was easy.

    about 14 years ago I cut my worn out Datsun pickup in half to make a trailer. kept some stuff, sold some stuff and gave the rest to the scrap guy. I still got the trailer... al legal and registered.

    once the fees went delinquent the DMV got all shitty with me. I had to fill out a form saying I scrapped it.

    there was no DMV in Road Warrior:cool:
