    ok I’m wanting to buy an old car (1962) from a guy in TX
    He has the title signed but never did the transfer (I assume when he bought the car) because it was a non running project car.
    He’s afraid to transfer it now due to the penalties....it’s been 12 years

    What are my options?
    Thx
    Chas

    if it was never on the road...no worries. Tell the DMV it was in storage.

    I bought a non-runner '58 from CA a few years back that ended up not having a title. Big hassle. Spent a lot of time on the phone with the OH and CA DMVs. Sounds like you're starting from a better place. Regarding penalties, I had similar concerns but CA said that as long as the car doesn't touch the road on its way out of the state, then all is forgiven. Turned out to be true in my case. Sounds like TX is similar. I'd still make a few calls to make sure you know what you are up against, though. Good luck. Sounds exciting!

    I'd hire a damn good lawyer, pay him lots of money, and I'm sure all will turn just fine.......
