The great state of N.C.

I have a hypothetical question that I need some help with. I was talking to a friend and he said he bought a 25 year old Rover from a private individual in N.C. He found it on e-bay, went to look at it. All the paperwork is in order and he was told he could get a title in his home state. He has tried to get a title and was told by DMV in his state that the Rover needed to be titled in NC. Then he could transfer title to his name in his home state. The seller said he has never had this problem before and told my friend to bring it back and he will get it titled.
This is a very nice Rover, a shiny frame. I think the frame is made from the same metal that they make chain link fence out of. The engine makes lots of noise and smells funny. He said that type of engine is used a lot in the UK because it cost less then gas. Anyway, I hear rumors about some problems in the great state of N.C. So here is the question; if my friend takes the nice Rover back to N.C. and takes it to the DMV is there any chance that he will be taking the bus home due to our dept of HLS taking away his ride? I would love to hear from someone that has titled a Rover in NC. Or any other free legal above that might be pertinent.
God bless the Queen.

I forgot to say that the Rover was imported by the person in NC.

State of NC doesn't give a crap. It's the Feds that have a driveshaft up their ass. Tell him to get the NC title while the gettin's good.

Are you really going to start another thread about illegal/legal 200/300Tdis and galvy frames?

Haven't you seen what happens?

Everyone has an opinion and wants to be clever and the thread is 300 posts long in a matter of a week and you still have no answer.

Secondly, that's like having a conversation witrh your buddy who is a doctor and asking what your "friend" should do if he's got a really red, itchy crotch.

Tell your "friend" to roll the dice and see what happens.

It can be titled as a vintage vehicle in NC...issue being any current title, or information is kept by NCDMV - UNTIL you have it inspected by a licensed inspector. So, you apply for registration - they send you plates, you pay the rego fee...you then have 6months to get it inspected by said individual, once done they will send you a NC title.

If the import docs are in order the DMV in any state should register it.

If you and Jack don't like the thread then don't read it. I have a question that I was hoping someone could answer. If I'm wasting your time then just don't read it. Easy. Sorry to bother you.

You have a hypothetical question about a topic/state/seller/truck/engine that has been discussed at length in the past week. All we're saying is that it may not be useful to hash out all of the same arguments that have been hashed out multiple times, when you can just read those two threads of hypothetical answers and speculation. The pot has been stirred plenty lately.

FYI, I know Eric, and have seen his truck. And it is a really nice truck.

P.S. He is a really nice guy who has opened his house to fellow forum members.

Eric, sorry if I came off as a wise-ass. Just that there's been lots of ignorant bluster on this board lately relating to imports. I hope everything turns out well for you. Sorry I don't have an intelligent and realistic solution for you.

Thanks- I think??

As Mark states, NC doesn't seem to care- at least in respect to diesels. We get an automatic exemption when a diesel is transplanted into a vehicle, period.
However, I do not deal with the gray market older Defenders, nor is Mark's, so he and I are both dealing with legit NAS trucks converted to diesels. I have no idea when it comes to all the other issues and older vehicles...

Thanks to all for the advice. I also followed the other threads about the issue in N.C. while my first post was an attempt at humor, the facts are true. I'm not a troll, but I've been called worst by better. I'm not trying to stir the pot. I was,am concerned about getting title on this Rover, yes I've be bit by this dam rover bug. It keeps awake at night thinking about parts I need- want, but you all understand the rover bug. I'm sorry if this thread was not to your liking. I did my mean to offend anyone. Thanks Raub for the kind words, and when do you want to meet up again? I'll be glad to drive to your town or Abe's place or we can meet at my place again. Let me know,

When my Series was brought in PA was doing the same thing to me. Tom Bache had brought in numerous Series trucks but when he went to the DMV with my truck they just wouldn't issue a title. We ended up using a service in Vegas, ITS Titles I believe. Sent them the VIN and $250 (I think) and in 2 weeks we had Maine title and plates. I then took that title to my DMV and changed it to PA.

What reason was given by the DMV of the States that refused to issue a title ?.
