Crazy.

AZ has a very simple 3-day restricted use permit that can be purchased online and printed out to put on the car...
Wow. That's great of AZ (and LOL GA). Buyer is figuring it out. I am not comfortable leaving my plates on the car. Anyway, cautiously optimistic. He is motivated.

And AF, I'm with you about getting the cars gone when the decision is made to sell them. We have a three-car garage, but only room to park two cars. So the wagon is clogging up the driveway. With a potential buyer coming, I won't drive it anywhere.

Why not? If he insures it, and you make some sort of legalese Bill of Sale.

When I sold my Volvo RV hauler, I let the new owner drive it home with my plates and registration, he mailed them back to me when he got it home.

I'd rather get ahead of problems than have to fix them later...If that's even possible.

Fortunately no accident occurred otherwise you'd be stuck in a very bad situation.

You might not have owned the rv at that time but there is no doubt you'd be dragged in a lawsuit if an accident did occur.

Yup.

So, that has to be the fastest I've ever sold a car--two days from listing to transaction and with an out-of-state buyer! (JST, thanks again for the CCA suggestion.)

Maybe I priced it too low

That's fantastic.

My first reaction was that it was high - nearly 3x what mine cost! But then I realized mine is 6 years older, has 120k more miles, and mine's a 325.

Clearly the platform isn't old enough yet to lump them all into one bucket.
