98 Outback! So happy to be joining the new gen crew. Everything went well, paid the deposit, bought a train ticket!!(choo choo) and packed my snack. But I called the dealers yesterday to ask if the car needs a temporary license plate, but MA don't give out temporary license plate!!! And Michigan won't issue one without a title, but of course dealers wont send the title unless full payment have been made. Okay even if I send the rest of the payment using a overnight, they will be getting it tomorrow, then they will the title using overnight to me, and I will be getting it on friday morning or afternoon. Ack, my train leaves 1:05am on Friday...I won't home to get the title...What should I do, what should I do....So I came up with a brilliant idea at the same time an illegal action...I will be taking off a license plate from my dad's CR-V, and putting on the Soobie. If I get pulled over, I will tell the officer that I just bought the vehicle and it is in process of title transfer.. haha. Hopefully this will work out...I really hope this won't cause me any trouble.

You will love it, I think the outbacks are one of the best subarus ever made. IMO.
Just have all your paper work. I have been pulled over without plates and title, bill of sales, etc.

Can't wait until I get a lift kit for it. Yay! By the way it take 12 hours of driving from Woburn(right next to Boston) to Ypsilanti, Mi. :-\ and 17 hours of train trip...
Wow why so far? Could you not find one locally?

I could never buy a car that I had not driven and looked over for repaired accident damage?
As long as you have your sales papers & insurance, you should be able to talk your way out of any sort of problem
Drive carefully and keep a phone with you!

This could be a good idea, but I probably get stopped everytime cop sees me...More often than not, those cheap***** will give me a ticket for not having a temporary license plate...Which I cant get one because MA doesn't have such a thing. Plus the idea with taking another license plate was given to me as final solution by the dealer. Plus I'm not too worried about getting into a trouble because my dad is coming along with me..he's old..I think he's 59..:-\ Well at least cop wont think us as a duo car thefts..(one 18 and one 59....)
A word to the wise from soeone who has bought and sold hundreds of cars....Don't put a tag on the car at all on the drive back! IT is better to have no tag on it than to have a false tag. You could get a nice big ticket for that. Just make sure you add the vehicle to your insurance before you leave and keep a copy of the policy with you. Also, most states will let you purchase a "trip tag" at the DMV near where you are purchasing the vehicle. It only cost a few dollars and is good for about a week or so. I would look into that if I were you.
Hope this helps.

since your buying this car from a dealer why cant he give you temp. plates?
i would go without plates rather than trying to fit in with your fake ones and get pulled over for some minor infraction then screwed over by some hodung cop for trying to deceive the law.
thats just me i have a way with police officers.
as long as you have the title the cars yours.
oh yeah and dont forget your license
have a safe trip on the train!
