I saw this one on the highway the other day. Looks like DD status.

I live in Kitsap (on the Olympic Peninsula). 101 actually starts in Olympia, goes north up to Port Angeles (the highest point on 101) and then heads south from there. Stop by Ocean Shores along the way (on the Pacific Coast) and then continue south all they way to LA where it merges with I5. If you follow I5 all the way to TJ, you will have driven the 101 from its most northern point to the most southern point. Stays pretty much in sight of the coast the whole way till you get to LA (go figure). Pretty epic drive.

I like this one, https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/5985567902.html

Wow, if that has A/C (can't tell from pic) it would be ideal!! Might have to ask.

Also I was thinking the same thing about easy to find parts. Old stuff is probably out of the running.

So in my home state of Maryland you have to have the signed title in hand to obtain temporary tags. $20 and They last 30 days.

It looks like a Washington trip permit is available for $30. However it is only valid for three days.

An Oregon trip permit is also $30 but it is valid for 21 days.

In all it sound like a major pita.

Sadly this may turn into a rental trip. :(
Best case is a transport trip, spread the word!!

I think September on the Volvo, this year or next, I transferred the plates from a different car when I got it. Longer on the Explorer.

So maybe you can help clarify this whole tags thing. If the were to buy your car the gas would transfer to me?

Well, there are a few ways it can go.

If I leave the plates on the car, the car is still registered for however long the tags are good for, DMV already has their money. I didn't realize until recently that Oregon allows plates to be transferred, so all these years I should have been keeping my plates and the registration I already paid for to transfer to my next vehicle. The plates on the V70 were actually transferred from my '71 Opel Kadett that hadn't run in years (but had current registration). I just got that car running to prep for the 24 Hours of LeMons Rally so I'm going to need plates for it again, ooops...

Also, keeping the plates from the car forces the next person to take care of the title. I sold an '86 Volvo 740 Turbo that was rear ended a year after I sold it and it was still in my name, that wouldn't have happened if I would have kept the plates. If you're taking a car of mine and you intend to dispose of it after the trip, I would be inclined to keep the plates.

Oregon does a 21 day trip permit. You don't need to own the car, they just want the VIN number, sometimes they ask for proof of insurance, and of course your money. You can only have two trip permits on a vehicle within a year (calendar or 12 months, I'm not sure). If you got an Oregon trip permit and had insurance, you'd probably be just fine.

What dates are you thinking? Both my V70XC and the Explorer should be sold.

I really like the V70, but I bought it from a friend as a favor, and I don't actually need it now that my V90/V8 is drivable. It seems perfectly reliable to me, has some thunks and clunks and drips a bit of oil, but nothing too serious. A/C and cruise control work, and the stereo sounds great. 181k miles. In my ownership I have done an ignition system service (plugs, wires, cap, rotor) to solve the poor running problem that it had when I bought it. To address the oil leaks, I have done the turbo drain and PCV service, but it still leaks a bit. I only have snow tires on the stock wheels right now. It will either get new tires on the stock 15" wheels, or I will put new tires on my 17x7.5 wheels that didn't fit on my V90. If you aren't planning on keeping the car, I could buy some used but safe tires for it.

The Explorer has nearly new tires, also working A/C and cruise, bench front seat for total seating of 6. Front suspension has been refreshed, control arms, tie rods, ball joints, etc. Also 180k-ish miles, or was it 160-something?

Neither are perfect, at $2000 nothing is, but they are both perfectly serviceable and I wouldn't expect any problems for a trip like you're describing. That's not a guarantee of course, but I'd drive either of them without hesitation.

These days every title transfer gets new plates, spending time in line.
Maybe this will help? https://fortress.wa.gov/dol/dolprod/...aspx?County=17

Update, airfair is being purchased. Star in Seattle July 25th, end in LA August 8th.
If the car option falls through maybe I can at least post on the transport thread and try to offset the rental that way. Not as much of a fun experience, but oh well.

That's the tricky bit isn't it. Unless you get a car cheap and disposable enough to dump at a carmax or junkyard.

Show up a week early and put this together. Needs seats, and brakes. And a windshield.

All decent rides, a little out of the price range. However the biggest problem is still setting a buyer up on the other end. I'll do this one day, but this may not be the right trip for it.

It's a '72 with the 1.9L CIH. It was an abandoned car for about twenty years before I hauled it to my place and let it sit for another five. I might put it back on the street eventually, but right now I'm building a '71 Opel Kadett wagon for the LeMons Rally. Currently running on Megasquirt with a GM TBI unit.
