    Well that was a painless process. 15 minutes total time. 2 DMV inspectors showed up, looked at the car and asked for my Certificate of Origin, Bills of Sales with serial numbers, and to see the serial number Factory Five etched in the chassis. They ran the numbers, took pictures of my car, and issued my paperwork. Now to get insurance and go pick up my tags.

    As a fellow North Carolinian, glad it went well.

    Did you have them come to you house?

    Scott,

    They did come to my house. I called them yesterday just to inquire about the process and how far in advance I needed to make an appointment. He informed me he could come today at 1100. I told him I wasn't quite finished with the car. He said that didn't matter at all. It was mostly just a paperwork audit. They accepted the 12 digit VIN assigned from Factory Five. Had me attach the FF supplied data tag while they were here. Said it was no need to generate a new 17 digit VIN. They registered it as a 1965 Ford replica. Very pleasant experience.

    If you have all your paperwork & don't require an indemnity policy you can get your plates & registration before the title comes in.

    Ask for historic or antique plates registration. A few bucks more but have property tax & state inspection advantages.

    That's what the inspector told me yesterday. He said I could go straight to the DMV and get my tags. Just not quite finished with the car yet. Quickly working through my final assembly punch list. Figured I would go get the tags this coming week.

    Fantastic! Congratulations on getting that done, and so pleased that it was so painless!

    Need to get those plates and post a picture. Also, I look forward to seeing her final pictures all wrapped up!

    Getting pretty darned real now! Congrats again.

    Regards,

    Steve
