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.

This local 1956 right hand drive Studebaker President 4-door sedan needed to be verified for it's current owner. Adding to the good styling are larger, wider wheels from a 1972 Plymouth Fury.

2015 Honda Odyssey Minivan

This 2015 Honda Odyssey minivan was just purchased by the San Jose owner from a dealer in Texas but an interesting conundrum occurred. California requires supporting documents to be available for the verification but the Texas dealer would not send them until it was verified!

Recently relocated to Cupertino, CA from Colorado, this 2009 Featherlite 4926 Trailer brought the family's belongings and kit car, towed behind their 1994 Ford F-250 Club Cab truck.

1983 SWM Jumbo TL350 Motorcycle

This Italian-built 1983 SWM Jumbo TL350 dirt bike was verified where it was more convenient in Milpitas at the office of owner rather than at his Sunnyvale home. It was a little difficult with it inside a van but accessible.

1983 Ford Bronco

This Bronco has sat outdoors for many years under redwood trees and has developed a nice patina! Although registered relatively recently, then non-oped for some years after, it has somehow fallen from the DMV's database so needed a verification in order to obtain a fresh title.

1999 Toyota Corolla Sedan

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.

1971 Honda AN600

The really cute and very tiny Honda AN600 was the very first Honda to be imported to the US and this 1971 version in Mountain View was recently purchased in California with a clean Florida title so a verification was needed.
