Ugh, another cool car at a reasonable price with no title. What's with this lately? Everytime something catches my eye and is priced right I get to the bottom and read that there's "no title, but you can get one easy". FML

Pre-1973 isn't difficult.

Depends upon the state. NY, niot hard. MD, forget about it.

VA isn't "difficult" per-se, depending on circumstances. If it was abandoned in your back yard and last titled in VA, it's a fee and about 2-3 months time. If you want to use the abandoned process and fudge a few details, it's still not that bad, unless it was last titled in another state, as was our lemons Valiant, in MD. After many phone calls and a letter I got a nice official "F-you" from MD motor vehicles saying that unless I'm law enforcement they won't give me what I need for VA to issue a title.

So you bribe someone in NY to get paperwork and then they sell it to you.

Does the "Tag it in Vermont by mail and transfer it over" no title trick not work anymore?

Vermont doesn't issue titles for cars that old, if seller has a current registration and gives you a bill of sale you should be able to get a title issued in your state.  I've done it in NJ and they are a real pain for most things but reg and bos and they had no problem.
