There is someone in California that may want to purchase my car.
Can someone from California or that knows CA DMV requirements tell me what is needed to get a out of state car registered in CA.
Is it just the title and Bill of Sale or do they also have to get the car inspected by DMV? Any emission laws for a 72?
Thanks in advance
Jay

That's right. When I got my group 4 from AZ, AAA DMV had to "see" the VIN tag on the car, so there was a physical inspection of the VIN tag. He may want to check the CA DMV website...everything is on line now to see what is required.
I did this last summer with my car purchased from Idaho. I had to purchase the replacement VIN tag for the door and have it lazer etched at a trophy shop. Also had to purchase a emissions tag and install it under the decklid. All this so the 20 something girl inspecting my car would pass it. She had no idea what the car was, had never heard of or seen one. The door tag was required for proof that the car met federal safety standards when it was built. The emission tag for proof of emission standards. Without the tags NO PASS. So as long as the car has both tags you should be fine.

Looks like some easy, some not. With my car being a custom show car, the previous owner didn't want to drill in the door tag, so he just siliconed it on, and mine passed ok. It helps to flirt with the female inspectors, and a pinch to the butt doesn't seem to hurt things when bending over inspecting the tags. It's just all part of business I suppose.
I have had varing results too with other cars. Some VIN verifiers are more picky than others. I had on try to tell me that my Honda Civic's firewall mounted VIN number was welded on. She's crazy. I went to another DMV and it flew. BTW you do in fact need at lease two place of identification. In the pantera's case we have 3. The brake booster area, the door tag and the dash tag. You need at least two.
