This nice 1966 Plymouth Fury III 2-door hardtop in Hollister was purchased locally a while back and is now being transferred to the new owner's name. I was going to try to use the build-sheet as the supporting document but it turned out to be for a different 1966 Plymouth Fury III as the sequence number was not the same! This may make registering it difficult so I'll post here once I learn the outcome.

This two-tone blue 1954 Packard Patrician had a California title in the current owner's name but had fallen from the DMV's database.
