In December of 2019, we gave Dan the Prius. He drove it to NYC, where having a car during the pandemic was a blessing. I had relicensed it earlier that year, so the plates were still good and they continue to be good through July. It doesn’t make any sense to maintain Missouri plates, so Dan is going get New York plates when he gets back there. Dan only recently got a New York driver’s license. Earlier this week, we trooped over to our safety deposit box and retrieved the title for the Prius from it. Yesterday, Dan and I went to the DMV to get the title in his name. Unfortunately, the title still had a lien on it from the original car loan and as such cannot be transferred. I messaged Toyota on Friday and they have already responded and will mail me the lien release form next week. We’ll be gone by then, so it will have to wait until we return. Then with the new form, I’ll return to the DMV and get a new clean title in Dan’s name. Missouri will mail me the new title and then I’ll mail it to Dan. Hopefully, all this will transpire before the end of July, giving Dan time to get new plates.
The cool down that occurred earlier this week has expired and we are back to hot and muggy weather, but we have air conditioning. I feel for Jay and Carl this weekend, because they are having a heat wave that makes Sweat Louis look cool and calm by comparison. I hope that they survive the heat.
Good luck with your quest for the paperwork, and then with the State employee who gets to assist (?) you. I have not had much luck the past few years…
It was hot today. For tonight I have opened windows that rarely get cracked to get whatever coolness the evening brings. Tomorrow and Monday are supposed to be the real test.
