  1. The car now officially had a title in Maine, never once has it ever gone through an inspection process, never has an insurance agency who issued the bond or the car insurance, ever said anything. At one point i was asked to take pictures of the vin on the dash and on the doors, and the car, (i took the plates off the car before proceeding.) Also the plates, went on the car, before it was ever driven back to the USA (US PLATES). The car was from mexico, did not have emission stickers under the hood.
  2. I did NOT under any circumstances lie to the insurance company I went through a company that does bonds, and told them I specifically bought a car without proper paper work. Registration Company - http://haskellregistration.com/wordpress/vehicle-registration/ Bond Company - http://blog.suretysolutionsllc.com/suretynews/maine-bonded-title I went through these companies, but it's important to call them and find out if anything has changed as this was some time ago. Also I under no circumstances asked them to ship anything to mexico as this would have been a red flag. The reason I chose Maine is the state does not require an inspection for out of state vehicles that are registered in Maine as this would have been an issue using a California bonded title. The reason to avoid inspection is as follows You have a foreign plated vehicle Your vehicle may not meet emissions You want to avoid them knowing your vehicle does not meet emissions or having dot approved glass, as this is a red flag. The state of Maine Requires no Smog, so everything seemed like a win win at the time, now things may have changed those are my two references, do your own research as this was nearly 2 years ago, and in 1 more year the 911 will have an official title as maine only takes 3 years where other states take 5 years. Another thing to note, I used a mailbox store address, to have the plates shipped to me, thus if there is a problem in the future nobody has my address, the mailbox store is also on my license.
  3. I have to say this i was able to skirt the entire situation. What I did was simple I bought a porsche 911 in Mexico for $69999pesos ($35,000 usa) It was a great deal, now the tricky part (don't lie to an insurance company, buy a bonded title in maine, maine does not require inspection, it cost me $300 for a bonded title, I went through an out of state registration service and I was able to obtain maine plates through the mail I sent them to my friends house, he forwarded them to me, when I got to Tijuana I put them on the car, and I put the mexican plates in the trunk, I was stopped, and pulled to secondary I showed them the registration of the car, and it had Maine Plates they waved me right through. I still have this car in the USA 2 years later.
