I'm trying to find out if I can buy a vehicle in the USA as an English guy on a uk passport? The plan was for my son and I to buy something on ebay or internet, fly across and collect, get temp tags, drive to Pennsylvania where we have an Uncle with an address. Re Tag car with PA plates. Then Son goes on Roadtrip for 90 days (visa limit) then I come back, takeover car and go on my roadtrip.
Problem is PA DMV says I need to be a resident of PA to plate car in PA. Anyone got any ideas on this...I've looked all over the net but all I get is conflicting advice. I'm in my fifties and my son is 21. Insurance seems possible but registration seems different in every state. I only have a relative in PA. We could both get International Driving Licences if needed. It was a lot easier when I hitched round in '73.
I'd appreciate any informed advice......Ed
