“I don’t even know which marque you’d have Calvin pissing on in the inevitable brand bashing window decal.” Most thoughtful thing I will read all day-I love NPOCP.

Don’t want, but damnit, for a rare vehicle with proven provenance, it’s a Nice Price if you’re into collecting oddball things. Ain’t especially pretty but it’s definitely rare/unique/something.

I have never had an issue buying a vehicle with a lien. You show up with straight cash homie, you go to the bank that holds the lien and the seller pays off the loan right then and there. Of course, this won’t work if the lien is held by some far-flung institution.

I used to do that as well in PA,but then we got exceedingly cheap,so now,they don’t actually send you a registration tag/sticker. They scan your plate as they’re behind you,and they check it that way. My own car has a sticker from almost two years ago,when they implemented this,and it makes me crazy,cause I feel like

I even have a fun little game I play at traffic lights to while away the time—I look at registration tags on the cars and trucks around me and pick out the ones that are expired.
