The vin does come back clean and not stolen. If what I'm trying next doesn't work then looks like this is the route I'll be taking. Thanks for the info!

I am going to hope for one that is in a good mood........ Inspectors aside, has anyone used the Vermont registration in North Carolina to get a title?
Do they recognize the Vermont registration as proof of ownership?
Do they uestion the fact that I obviously don't live there?

I just want to hear from someone who has gotten a title this way that it does indeed work.

Yes they do, especially if the paper trail in their system shows that it's been in NC the whole time. NC DMV has been known to take extra efforts in tracing & denying title transfers from "title mill" states. I don't know if Vermont has been recognized as such but they really cracked down on titles from those mid-western states that were always used in the "get a title for any car" ads in Hemmings & the like.

When I got my latest project registered last week, it got flagged due to being out of the system for 35+ years & a DMV officer called the tag agency to have them send a fax of the title to be reviewed by the overlords.
