Default Registering a new "1965" Backdraft in Georgia

I live in a Clean Air county so want to ensure there are no surprises.

If I buy a new, zero-mile Backdraft, I am told I get a title that says "1965."

What are my options/requirements as far as title, tags?

I sure would like to find a way to avoid paying 6.6% tax.

You should add "Legally". Toys get taxed too. You're lucky at 6.6%. It's 8.75% here on all purchases - wrench at home depot or Toyota. Or Backdraft. All the same.

A fella I asked this question of who has a lot of experience here says that if the title says 1965 Georgia will assign a value of $100 to the vehicle and charge me 6.6% of that -- $6.60. That. Would. Be. Awesome.

That'd be nice. Here in TN, mine's registered as '65. Still had to pay tax on the sales receipt.

That's the way it worked for me in Colorado. Got a 5 year registration for $35 but had to pay sales tax on the purchase price.

You may be able to get an emissions "non conforming" waiver for your car (not available in the past):

Try to reinvent the wheel in Georgia and you could ultimately be fined more than the taxes, in addition, the car could be seized. Yes, really.

Don't believe me, CLICK HERE
