Flying to Boston on Thursday (points), see car on Friday, drive back (hotel points). Haven't seen car in person and won't pay until I do (or get title until I pay). Having PPI done tomorrow.
Buying car from an individual, Massachusets doesn't have temporary tags (called Mass. RMV). I called Ohio BMV and I can't get temp. tags here without the title. They said if I am caught with no tag in Ohio car will be impounded and if I use a tag from the wrong car (my daily driver) same thing.
In Mass. you evidently have 7 days to run car with tags from car you are getting rid of but if you aren't getting rid of it then you you really aren't supposed to switch tags (tough to figure out when pulled over).
I asked Ohio DMV what I should do and they said send the title back next day air to my wife, have her go and get a temp. tag (can't get a permanent without them looking at the car), then her next day air me the temp. tag. Problem with this is I would send the title to her on Friday and then get the temp. tag back in Boston on Tuesday and get home Wed. night instead of Saturday night.
Suggestions???? Probably going to have to take the wrong tag with me and hope for the best.
