Re: Disaster. No joke.

Wow...my first read too. Thanks for all the fire protection advice.

Gyrhead, I know it’s too late, but did you try Schreiber’s in Fremont? Just got mine back and his paint work was excellent.

FINALLY! A3107751-3478-441E-8770-3557977CE9B3.jpeg My first view. Eleven long weeks. I was in touch with the shop on and off. I was good with them taking their time and getting it right. The paint looks dead on. Very happy with the match. 848744DC-4358-4543-8292-9737906DD39F.jpeg 73A63844-F302-4B21-...

Re: Buying advise on cars out of state

Is there a reason you feel obligated to collect sales tax for other states? Did those states contact you and tell you that you had to collect? Since you are not physically located in those other states are you really responsible for collecting their tax? This just does not seem right to me at all. ...

Re: Restoration Slot open starting January 2019

From Hemings: Wondering whether a particular Maverick is a real V-8-powered Grabber or not? The easiest way to tell without insulting the owner is by checking out the VIN: The third and fourth digits should be a 93, which indicate Maverick Grabber. (A standard Maverick coupe has a 91 code.)

Re: Buying advise on cars out of state

Quick hits:
Re: Carlisle. You are spot on. Once a seller is in State the remote exemption is gone.

Re: your take on beneficiary State is correct.

Re: Zero sales. No State is currently requiring. Guessing they are thrilled with what they got.

Re: Buying advise on cars out of state

I’m with you Al. But the last SCOTUS being forward thinking 🤔 realized the loss of sales tax was...fiscally irresponsible...and chose to use the Bench to legislate. Sigh... The small seller exemption existed in the challenged South Dakota law. They carved out that exemption to protect the little guy...
