Re: [FWDLK] Any help appriciated



Hi Dirk,

I don't have any experience with New Jersey or Tennessee but I've done
this in Oregon, Massachussetts and Pennsylvania. I think that the key
is to find an insurance company that would be ready to insure the car.
Usually they want to sell you an insurance for at least six months and
give you a refund if you cancel it earlier. Many companies are not
interested in insuring foreigners as they think it's not worthwhile.

Again, the registration varies from state to state, in Oregon they
transferred the old plates to me, in PA i got a 30-day tag and in MA I
got new plates which had to be returned in order to cancel the
insurance.

I have used either an address of someone I know locally or the seller,
both ways seem to work fine. The DMV offices are an experience to visit,
I could never have thought that something that inefficient could be
found in the good old US of A (no offense guys). Be prepared to spend
a while there.

I'm sure that some NJ and TN members can tell you how these things work
there but with some planning beforehand you shouldn't have any problems.
It will be a great experience to do this, go for it!

Good luck, Hans in Finland

Hello list members,

 

I have a question that is not a Forward look subject but I can use any info I can get.

I recently purchased a 1966 Chrysler imperial convertible on EBay  . The car is in the Newark Area (New Jersey).

 

I am a Dutch citizen and I would ship the car home, but first I would like to drive the car in the USA.

New Jersey State says it is possible to get a temporary tag to bring it home, this temporary tag is valid for 20 days, I would need insurance for the car.

“Home” would be that I want to drive the car to Florida and ship it from there to the Netherlands. Why I want to do this? Since I bought the car from a picture, I would like to drive it around. There might be some trouble on the way and I would be able to get it fixed in the USA. Parts are difficult to find over here and I would like to take it home as good as possible. Beside all that it would be a thrill just to cruise it through your beautiful country.

 

I understand that the car should be insured and I need a tag registration. I have two addresses from friends, one in Florida and one in Knoxville.

 

Questions I have are;

 

Can I register the car on my name, insure it and drive it.

Can I register the car on one of the friend’s names; they insure it and I drive it.

I am buying the car in New Jersey, if I would have it transported to Knoxville, can I register the car in Tennessee with the New Jersey Title.

 

I have been to Hershey several times and I remember that other Dutch people who bought a car drove with the tag plates that where on the car .

Could they do that or did they take a risk?

I would like to hear your experiences if you have ever bought a car out of state.

As I said any help, info, suggestions greatly appreciated,

With kind regards, Dirk Brandwijk , Netherlands
