So, I’m on my ninth car now. The Eclipse is fully paid off ($950) and I have the signed title in hand. Now, I must look into locations and hours of operation for the DMV (Which handles registrations here instead of the County Clerk). I have to remember to bring my DD 214 so I can get Honorably Discharged Veteran plates.
I left at 5:45 for the podunk town of Watkins. The previous owner didn’t live in Watkins, so much as near it in county. So my destination was a house on a private dirt road at the end of a public dirt road off of a state highway in county near a small town that almost borders a suburb of a real city. Talk about being out there!
I arrived at 7:45. He wasn’t there, but he left the signed title and bill of sale. Good enough, so I paid off his (very hot) wife and took the paperwork home.
