NOTE: Due to the on-going pandemic, vehicles must be outside and away from buildings and other cars which needs to be done anyway in order to properly do the verification. Also, all present MUST be wearing masks. These things are not optional.

Very rare split-window 1951 Volkswagen Beetle in Santa Clara is about to be restored by its owner. Very few of these base model cars exist and even fewer in the U.S., this one having come from Europe where it was originally sold when new. Originally grey, then painted blue (possibly for police use in Germany), then beige.

This low mileage 1999 Toyota Corolla from Canada was just given to a new owner in Sunnyvale although it does not have California emissions labels or US Federal Certification (FMVSS) labels so might be problematic in registering it here.

1985 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 Coupe

This 1985 Mustang LX 5.0 Coupe was originally sold in California, then years later the owner moved to Oregon so registered it there. The car was finally parked in 2007 and not driven again so was finally being transferred to the owner's brother in California who has made it roadworthy once again. It is still located in Oregon but now has a California title thanks to some travel to do the verification.

1997 Silver-Eagle M1102 Utility Trailer

This 1997 Silver Eagle M1102 military surplus utility trailer posed some interesting verification concerns as this type of vehicle does not have a standardized VIN and has no federal certification sticker so the new Cupertino owner might have a DMV battle ahead. I hope not, though, and they already assured him that it should be no problem but I notated the verification form of these facts, and supplied photos of the serial number plate and of the entire trailer that should help.

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.

1973 Ford F100 Pickup

This 1973 Ford F100 in Campbell was a bit more disassembled than is preferred for a verification as it was being pieced together from several vehicles. With a little additional research, I managed to do the verification.
