After much hee hawing with the DMV, I finally got my tags.
I went to see about getting tags and they said they have to inspect it, so bring it here. I tell them I can't bring it there because I have no tags. Just use your out of state tags, they say. I tell them they expired nearly 14 months ago.
So.... I can't get it to them without tags and they won't give me tags without it being there.
They gave me a form to have a law enforcement officer fill out to verify that my truck is actually my truck that the title says that it is.
Have you ever tried to get law enforcement on New Years Eve?The police I did get through to said sorry, you're out of my jurisdiction. So I told them I can drive my truck to the fence line which is legally their jurisdiction. (10 feet on either side of the fence is legally theirs) You have to get the sherrifs office to do it.
Yesterday, I went and got insurance. They give it to me and don't ask to see the truck. I ask them if they want the receipts for the engine rebuild, and they tell me no. I think I am going to respectfully request that they add them to my file anyways.
Today, I drive my truck to the DMV expired tags and all. I figure if they (law enforcement) stop me I will just tell them the truth.
It all worked out in the end.
The truck had no getupandgo, so I messed with the timing and it is much better now
edit - the fence line is the north side property line for me. Just drive over the grass and through the field so I don't go on the road
