    I wanted to provide another update and 'thank you' to Terry on my new member thread. Since my initial posting, Terry (believe it or not) actually did so much more to make sure the car was in great shape upon delivery. Here are the additional items he replaced (all without asking a penny more):

    - OEM steering wheel
    - OEM floor mats
    - Gaskets: head, valve cover, intake and exhaust manifold, oil filter stand, and lower oil pan
    - Spark plugs
    - Radiator, thermostat, and water pump
    - A/C compressor
    - 3 drive belts
    - Muffler and exhaust tip
    - Front and rear brake pads
    - Wiper blades
    - Washer motor
    - Battery

    I flew down to LA and took delivery of the car on the 19th and drove it almost 1,000 miles back to Portland. The entire time with a huge grin on my face! The car ran flawlessly. The car is currently getting some touch-up paint done and a few tasteful mods installed. I will provide one last update with pictures when she is done!

    I would recommend Terry not only as a completely fair and honest seller, but as a top-notch mechanic as well.

    Thanks again, Terry! Cheers.

    The car was suppose to be paided as non operational back in 2011,it was not so now there are back fee's owed to DMV for the registration penalties that has not been paid for the last couple of years since its been sitting at the guys house. My wife ran a KSR at the auction where she works at before we bought the car,that's how we found out.

So basically im making sure everything on my end of paperwork is legit for him to buy the car.So when he comes to buy the car i have a pink in my hand in my name to sell to him. Whew...
    What are back fees?

    In Illinois we can just register whatever with no questions. Lost titles are a flat fee and proof of ownership like a notarized bill of sale.

    Why does it have to be smogged if its getting sold out of state?

    For sure. I have a set of Lowtec 60/50 springs with GC touring camber plates on the way. Should be a nice drop! The ejnight skid plate will most likely be an oil-pan saver for me.
