1948 DeSoto Custom Coupe.

My Dad bought it as a junker in 78 and fully rebuilt it. He handed it off to me for the next decade or so and then it's off to my oldest.

I had a run in with our version of Thelma and Patty at the local Illannoy DMV while trying to get the title transferred and tagged. I was so frustrated with the red tape that I was at the point of putting it on a trailer and sending it back to my Dad. My insurance agent recommended a different DMV facility in another town. I was in and out of there in less than an hour, with a temporary tag in my hand and the title transferred. I was so pleased by how it went that I broke down and paid extra for Vanity plates.

Cold war feelings aside, there's bonding going on in the garage.

Wow! Very nice!

My Dad used to collect Studebakers, but unfortunately he never got around to get one totally refinished.

Glad you got the paperwork all worked out, and can do some cruisin'.

Thanks.
All the paperwork is done just in time for ice and snow. And salt. So no cruisn' for awhile. It'll spend the winter in my garage and get some needed minor repairs done.
