    Well I got my application for title paperwork today. The lady at the Secretary of State said I should get my title in a week. Thank you soooooooooo much to everybody who took time out of their busy schedules to walk me through this process. I followed some step by step instructions provided by a couple of HAMBers and it worked perfectly. I walked out of there saying "There's no way it's this easy." Now that I know how to do it, I've got two roadsters to title but I think I'll wait a month or so. Again thanks you guys, couldn't have done it without ya! :D :D :D

    Congratulations Lucky, I was thinking you may need to change your name there for awhile with the trailer and the title problems all at the same time. Did you have to go to a different town or did you just get a different clerk?

    I'm curious, too. How'd you do it?

    You deserve it, man. You worked too hard on that car to not be able to enjoy it.

    Now that school is out, we should get together. I'd like to check out your rides, especially your newest acquisition.

    Wow another LEGAL hot rod. You should move to Florida. Or better yet Alabama.

    Glad to hear the ordeal is over.

    It coulda been that easy the first time. you need to have your shit together when you go in. Ive done 4 N/Y registrations and no questions. I did tell em once when asked that id been working on the car for 4 years and didnt apply for a michigan title so I had to pay the fee for not doing that right away.. Big deal. Dont try to low ball em on tax money and 15 minutes later your out the door with the paper work for a michigan title in hand.. Its so easy a caveman can do it..:D

    Maybe it was my advice, maybe it wasn't..but here it is again because it works fo me..send off to International Title Service/ Las Vegas Nv. for their paperwork $120.00...Fill it out with YOUR VIN number, you can make one up if get back Alabama paperwork (a Federally mandated Bill of Sale only,if necessary, state) you take this down to yer local DPS/DMV and do an out-of-state title will get a beautiful pink and blue in the mail and be legal for usually less than $250.00..This is especially a sweet way to go because it uses your VIN number..I'm driving two cars going this way....

    Here the game can be played for less than 1/10 that money. As Dave said it's so easy a caveman can do it. It's just a matter of knowing the process and not letting some uniformed clerk at the license bureau steer you wrong or tell you it can't be done.

    The fires of hell are going to descend on the offices since you gave their new location! Alabama paperwork from an office in Las Vegas, Nevada?? I smell a big news story, and a further tightening of regulations in Alabama, plus a nice jail term for the court officer doing those "inspections".

    I played that game for a few months myself. I didn't have any uniformed clerks, I had UNINFORMED clerks. Now I know that the INFORMED clerk is the one to go to and she'll sort out the uninformed ones IF you know the questions to ask and the details to give!! I got informed by my HAMB bretheren FIRST and THEN went about it the right way. Good to hear you've scored Scott, now drive that beast!

    That'd be a great idea. Lucky, If you could type up a post on the exact steps you took to acquire a valid title, it'd be very valueable to everyone who frequents this board and is in a similar if not the same situation. ...If it's not toomuch to ask. Thanks.
