    Has anyone ever tried to title one of the trucks won on this site? What did you have to do?

    Thanks.

    Call your local DMV. It varies by state. Most states you just bring the form that they give you (SF-97 or something) and register the truck just like any other. Also make sure that the auction is noot a "salvage" so that the truck can be registered.

    I have only parted them out, but my impression was that you took the reciept and the sf97 to the dmv to register the truck.

    if you got a sf-97 in your name then that is the form to get your title. most dmv's require a print out of the sale price so make sure they put that on the sf-97. I have gotten about 60 trucks and retitled all of them except one and it did not come with sf-97

    That is the most useful answer to registration and title questions. I think sometimes people tend to be oddly hesitant to contact an government agency - even if they're going to have to contact them eventually!

    Here's where I'm at now. I went to the DMV with the SF97 (It's made out to GL) and a letter the PO got when he won the auction. DMV lady tells me I need another letter/release form from GL. I call GL (must be very patient with these people) and they are sending a letter or form of some sort to the PO (because his name was on the auction). Now we wait untill Jon gets the letter in the mail he/we go to the DMV and title it in his name, then transfer to me. The titling part is therorectical at this point, once the form comes we will find out if that's all we need.:crazy:
