1956 Clipper Custom Sedan

Another vehicle that had fallen from the DMV's database when they changed their policy from one-time non-ops to annual after the owner had moved and never got the notice. Of course, the policy changed back to annual but by then it was gone from their system. My knowledge of Packard helped to properly title it as Clipper which, for 1956 only, was a separate make.

2004 Acura RSX

This car was already currently registered in California and was being purchased by the owner's friend. I could not convince them that it did not need to be verified but it turned out that the main reason they wanted it verified was to get me to fill another form from the credit union which is not what I generally like to do but, as it wasn't a legal document, I did it along with the verification.

The San Francisco owner of this 2015 Maserati Ghibli purchased it from an out of state dealer. However, his son who lives in San Jose had the car when they realized that it had to be immediately verified and, as I was at my Santa Cruz location that day, he drove it over for verification there.
