Oh, the things you get into – how long has it been since I’ve been here? somewhat follow on to what would have been last post except did take a bend with that one but to pick back up – that one was dated Oct 16, with the birth of a son of a daughter of a dear friend, but…right before then on October 12, dil’s sister had her last one, then left her and her next older brother with dil, taking her oldest one and going back home out of state, which thrilled dil to have the two babies to take care of, until…the day she showed up to get them, really threw dil for a loop, ultimately leading to her going up there as well to be with them, leaving son – her husband – and daughter behind with then ultimately son/husband going up there to her – now hearing lots of motive, etc., but again, ultimately leading to him bringing her back, to today, him asking her why, hadn’t heard that she had, hm..especially since wouldn’t talk to him – he actually went more than once – when he first went, which led to him leaving that state to go to a friend’s to bring him back down here with him – for what? again, hm…good question but no answer because never got that far – not sure if anybody/everybody? realizes, expects that northern states are often more serious than the southern ones, but don’t drive up there in a car with no tag/license plate – you’ll probably not only get stopped – that can happen down here as well, but you probably won’t get by with just being cited – but you’ll probably get your car impounded, especially if you can’t produce registration. Now he did have a bill of sale but it hadn’t been notarized, another biggie more up north, so….make sure about that, too, so off it went. But to muddy the waters even more the car wasn’t even registered to who the bill of sale was from – can you tell the VIN wasn’t run? – meaning it wasn’t even legal to sell but you can be sure they ran it then and found who it was at least supposed to – and wouldn’t it have had to have been to come up – be registerd to, with address and phone number, thankfully both local, so son was able to find her, no biggie; don’t know who or what she is but she just bought her another car – oh, wait, you say, wouldn’t that have been the plan if she sold it – oh, but that’s where you don’t understand, she didn’t sell it; it was at a shop to be fixed – yes, the shop son worked at but had not been told to work on this vehicle but had in theory had it sold to him – so it had never been fixed, not sure if she just didn’t press the issue, since apparently she could just go buy another one, so didn’t have a problem turning it over to son only one problem, she apparently didn’t have the title, even though it came up in the system as being registered to her, now why couldn’t she just apply for replacement title? hm….and why didn’t she have one – she says she’d title pawned it years ago and never paid it off, now why didn’t the title pawn company ever come get the car, who knows? or maybe it’s like a situation we have with some land, maybe they’re just waiting till it’s run and pops up in the system and maybe it’s like what was said, since it was run but think possibly only out of state that it didn’t then but what about when we get to the courthouse today – if we get there, hm.. – and it’s run here but then what don’t understand is how was able to be title pawned here when it wasn’t registered here and…since it wasn’t and it’s not here can it be without being inspected, guess will find all that out.
Turned out wasn’t title pawned here, even though the company does have offices here and it did show up in their data base but decided I’d better not get myself any deeper into that then but maybe explains why/how they never came and got it, or at least where she actually did it, since she apparently left the state with it and since she never registered it here they never knew where it was, wonder what it said when it popped up in their system when I called locally, probably just still has the original, to here, out of state address; wish now knew when called because never made it to the courthouse or maybe really deliberately didn’t go because either learned or got the idea needed the original, official, notarized title bond that he was approved for, which is really the point here because in calling the wrong DMV office, or really is it? anyway, the one in my county, while they lived right across the county line, anyway mine said wouldn’t be able to get approved with having the title pawn on it but my county’s more strict about a lot of things than his but had already been run through the state to begin with, which is who approves, at least to apply for a bond, maybe she meant couldn’t find insurance company to approve one, but that’s like a lot of things, some will, some won’t, or maybe she meant, although in some ways hope not, that still couldn’t get the application for title, at least not without it being paid off, but even then might be if it were local, but then with them having local offices not sure how that will work but then wouldn’t that be what the title bond should cover?
and maybe so, because came in with it, tag and everything
now to see if actually get it out of impound yard
Now I realize I really just talked all around the actual title bond without really getting into how you actually get one
he first of all called the state department of revenue title division, which was an ordeal in itself – well, actually he didn’t first call, he first went online and put in all the information, specifically the VIN talked about earlier for them to run not finding this title pawn evidently or they might not have approved him or it for a surety bond, the calling came later after he hadn’t heard anything online or because of some other online issues which typically have nothing to do with this, but there’s not a direct line to the title department – oh, but there is a chat thing for the department; which, while he was using pc and landline, I did on cell, but they’re only general info, can’t really do much other than give you the directions that are online but not really any follow-up and can’t even really direct to where you can, so….and the wait time when transferred is like forever but we finally played it out, more so him than me got it to where when he finally got somebody was able to explain the situation and actually get the process expedited to get the approval without it being the days long process we kept getting with the canned spiel, especially because at the time, or had been, can’t remember if had actually been told different at that point or not, we’d been told that by this past Friday they were going to crush it, but after that, after making progress getting this done, they told us as long as we kept in touch they’d work with us; at that time we even thought we were going to have to wait until we had the actual official title in hand, which is what they started off saying but then as we began telling them the process we were having to go through they said just to make sure they brought a tag but guess that could be my next worry, that they’ll get up there and will, but they started saying after that as long as we had what we have, some type of proper documentation be good, so, again, hope so. So, again, the approval did come through, which you have to have in order to then get with an insurance/title bonding company to actually get the actual bond, which didn’t know how that would work but he found one online, then had to wait for FexEx to deliver actual paper, notarized official original, couldn’t just print off online to take to DMV, but it came, he did, came back with tag, took off and
got the car!
