Depends on what State you want to register it in. What State? and I will see what I can find

its is a NEW YORK registered car.thanks.

Si. senor~ this car may simply disappear...be prepared for that if you visit Mexico~

notice the two LL's....scary haunt~

Okay..it's going to have to have a "Salvaged Title" as if it had been declared a total loss by an insurance company and salvaged and repaired, NY State statutes require that for an 'Imported from Foreign Country" apply ..an inspection by NY State licensed inspector

It was a total? did not see that in your description.~

No.. Judge, that's not what I meant. But the State of New York requires the same procedure as IF it were declared to be "totaled'....to Import it is the same inspection procedure

You cant just bring it up to current NY reg. since the car was previously registered there before, and just not mention it left the country?

the VIN will tell all...they will squeeze as much money out of that VIN...not registered...past dues....penalties...look out for a Blizzard of fines once registered~

If the car is titled in NY can't you just re-register it? Has it ever been registered in NY? Most States purge title and registration records after 5 to 7 years of inactivity on a perticular VIN. NY may have no record of this vehicle. HTH. -Jim
