I thought I was in the clear when I was presented with TAGS and plates on my A- Coupe, then after I paid 450.00 ( now into it for 750.00 ) I got a letter from DMV requesting the following. Keep in mind I already had the vehicle inspected and verified by a VIN officer, so I'm good there. 1. Bill of sale from seller to buyer (had one but it was on a paper that also had the word " invoice" on it and DMV didn't like that). This one I'm not worried about because I know the guy I bought the body from and can get another BOS on the DMV form. 2. Statement of facts from a classic car and restoration "dealer" appraising it's current value ( so they can tax me again ). Again, not worried about this one either. I have a buddy who owns a So Cal Speed shop that might be able to assist. ( not sure if he would qualify as a "DEALER" though. 3. California vehicle bond. This one has me totally confused and I need some help. Did a google and was even more confused. My google search left me with this conclusion. Pay another insurance company a few hundred bones and presto your bonded. Problem is that I really don't understand the "BOND", why it's being asked for and the potential issues if something goes wrong Anyone that has went through the bond piece please enlighten me. Thanks.
