      68 grill and front end but the left rear quarter panel says it's a 69 unless someone replaced the 1/4 with a 69 panel. For me to buy anymore cars without a title, it's going to have to be pretty nice to make me want to go through the hassle of getting one....

        Cool find TRex!


        Cranky, the state is so desperate for money you can get a tittle for anything with just an inspection sticker, insurance and a phone call. Only thing you have to worry about is to make sure it's not stolen if you buy it without a title. (not saying this car is). State is going to hit you pretty good in fees but you can have a title too easily in my opinion.
        His car wasn't that fast, I caught him on the return road and passed him in the pits.

          I've done a few years back and yeah, it was very easy but I guess the stars didn't align for me the last time I tried it. What's the phone call about?

            Heck. I am confused now.

            I find it easier just to hire a person with experience sometimes to get the job done easier and cheaper than I could do it myself. The phone call for me is to a title company who will do all the leg work and standing in the lines, dealing with the morons at the DMV, etc.
