Hello Folks

Just trying to figure out some history. I have imported a lovely 67
Fastback from NC. In doing a little digging I saw it was purchased by the last owner in 1992
and then it's first registration noted in a VIN search was 2003 and they continued yearly


My First question is to eliminate obvious reasons. Is it possible that in 92-2003 there were no yearly registration requirements in NC? Doubtful but asking nevertheless :-)

Second thought was the car was a concourse example and trailered to shows. A 2001 show award was found in an internet search so if yearly registration was occurring then it's possible he was trailering to shows. Car shows as an awesomely preserved or very well restored car in my judgement.

I feel sad that there must be a huge file on this car somewhere and it's now been lossed. Cars like this obviously
Cherished example always seem to have owners who meticulously keep receipts

Sadly the PO is now deceased and his wife has no files on the car.

Thanks for any advice you may be able to offer.

NC registration is only required if one wants to drive the car on public roads.  It's perfectly fine to not register a car and not drive it, but still have ownership with a title and have insurance.

Happens quite a bit, especially with restoration projects.  Technically, owners are supposed to pay yearly property tax.

Thank you Caspian

I suspected it was during a restoration and subsequent period of showing the car

Cheers. Peter

Or he might have had access to a dealer plate for a once in a while drive.
