Default Registration in Ky

What does it take to register a cobra in Kentucky. I am going to get a Hurricane kit in the near future. I've read some getting antique plates. I've checked the Kentucky DMV web site and there is no information.
Has anybody used State farm here.

Thanks
Ron

Thanks Roger.
I am not there yet. Just wondering if it was more then a check the bill of sale or turn the head lights on and honk the horn type of inspection?
A few years ago I bought a car out of state and that what they did and check the vin number.
Just was wondering what kind of hassle I should look forward too.

Ron,
The process is more complicated that you described.

It's been a few years, but here is what I remember doing.

1) Sheriff comes to inspect the car. in my case the deputy only checked the vin against the certificate of origin. But other people have had to undergo a more complete inspection of the functionality of the car.

2) Take the paperwork from step 1 to Frankfort to get a salvage title. This process is very difficult to understand. After trying to do this by mail I finally went down in person to get it done. They will need the originals of all of your receipts. Be sure to make copies of your receipts and certificate of origin as you will need them for step 3. Get to Frankfort early and be prepared to wait in line all day. They only do this type of paperwork one day a week. If you can find some car dealer in line near you to look over your paper work before you get into see the clerk. The might be able to spot any small errors that would otherwise set you back.

3) Take the paperwork from step 1 and 2 along with the copies mentioned above to your local DMV office along with proof of insurance. The lady at the desk said I could get historic plates, so I did, but it turns out she was in error. I found this out after my friend registered his car and was told he could not get historic plates ( we both have E-Ms with identical certificates of origin. ) When he told me his experience I called the DMV and gave up my plates and also paid the sales tax that was due on my car. I figured that it was better to honest upfront once I discovered the mistake.

This about all I can remember.

No wait come to think about it I seem to remember drinking alot of beer between steps 1 and 2. Or was it between 2 and 3.

What the hell, now that it's over and I'm driving my car it seems worthwile.
But then again maybe it's just the beer talking.
Come to think about it I don't remember drinking very much until I started trying to get my car registered.

Cheers,
Roger

Thanks Rodger.
Sounds like a pain. But it will be worth it.

Doesn't look too terible.
