I was just in town in TX registering 3 of my vehicles and I asked the girl
about titles and she called them " E titles " . They do them all the time and
will print you a paper one for a fee . She said Florida should be able to send
an E title to Pennsylvania as long as the fees , penalties and taxes were
satisfied .
She thought he should deal first with Florida .

Doug , I guess I don't know what a MSO is .

I'm an old guy , I like paper , I can hold it in my hand that's the way it
should be .
I also believe there was a paper title at Bank of America in No Carolina
and what they really meant was we are not going to find it and send it to you .
They will just generate a new one and I can get it at my local tax office .
The tax people assume we all understand all this new stuff , WRONG .
It all sounds so good but if one little thing goes wrong you may not live
long enough to find someone that can straighten out the computer .
I hope the OP can find that person .

My bet is that the OP never responds to this thread - any takers?

We haven't heard from the OP recently, but my biggest question is; without the title and registration, how is he purchasing a tag each year?
Seems to me that it has never been registered in his home state. I'm guessing if he does get the original title he will be faced with a lot of late fees and penatlies.
His best shot now is to forget the dealer and do a new title from a storage lien (in Oklahoma it's called a title 42) Cost is a few hundred dollars and takes about a month.

Sorry, I still think you are confused. a TITLE is like having CASH. You cannot just go to a Gov and say here is my fee payment, print me a Title. HOW would the Government KNOW if there was a Lien on that vehicle if you just had a Title in the "computer"??? That would negate the VALUE of a Title. If you could do that, ANYBODY could go and get a printed title and then SELL YOUR vehicle, since they have the paper title. Doug

MSO, is Manufacturers Statement of Origin. NO NEW vehicle comes with a title. Titles are a function of Government. Manufacturers issue MSO's. Doug

PS. until the past few years in Texas, you purchased a new vehicle for cash, you would get the MSO and then YOU had to go to the local Gov authority to do the paperwork to get the Title. Now, Texas requires the selling Dealer to get the Title work done and you do not get the MSO anymore.

This I know for sure, I have vehicles registered in 3 states, WV, MD, and NC and all 3 of those have PAPER titles. Lots of misinformation and also some correct information as well above but would be pretty simple to get that straight IF the OP has any paper work from where he got it. If not there are several other options. I notice that he has not come back on here to offer info on his progress.

Good info. It appears Texas and Florida have e titles. But, having the paper title makes things a lot easier. Doug

Yeah, here in FL, they sort of push the title. I always opt for a paper title. It does take a few weeks to get one vs instant for e title.

Now, if the OP ever returns, he could check status at FL DMV VIN check

AGain, you can get an instant paper title at one of the DMV locations for an extra $10 (it used to be $7), like we always have, when dealing directly with the seller. Last time, was with a consignment dealer, who had the seller's title in hand.
