    Default Legal Issues that could effect all MV Owners

    Got my Sf97 and went to my local tag office to get my tag and title. I was told (after two calls to the state) that the state of Georgia doesn't register or tag BMY trucks "because they where made for the government".
    Is this true or some fool at the DMV that doesn't know what there talking about?
    Is there a way to register it in Georgia?

    I'm having the same issue...as is a good friend of mine.

    BMY or Harsco was not listed in the local DMV data base so they sent a request to Atlanta to have it added since we have the SF97's from the government.
    Also, both trucks (one M923 and one M934) do not have 17 digit VINs and DMV just cannot get it thru their heads that it's NOT a VIN but a SERIAL NUMBER!!

    I have a tag/title feller working on it because I just knew I would get locked up when I inevitively blue a gasket and went off like a Chinese firework!!

    So...hasn't anyone EVER LEAGALLY titled a BMY Harsco truck in GA?? I KNOW they are out there....er...here.??

    I heard...or read...honestly don't remember which, that someone in GA registered an M923 as a Chevrolet?? Well, that would not set right with me, PLUS...where did the extra numbers come from to make a 17 digit VIN??

    The VIN/Serial Number is no problem, you need a T22B "Certificate of Inspection".

    Of course you do...and we do....along with an "etching" of the serial # on the plate...AND a GOOD picture of the data plate, AND a picture of the truck.

    I'm thinking we will give the title feller til Wednesday, or maybe Friday to get some action.
    If no joy, I just might take the paperwork and load the M934 on the landoll (and flatten the tires again for height w/permit) and haul her to Atlanta DMV and sorta get "up close and personal".

    This is the only info on the Georgia DMV website. Nothing about Military vehicles.
    Vehicles not registered or titled in Georgia
    The State of Georgia does not register or title the following vehicles:
    1) Mopeds
    2) Motorized carts
    3) All-terrain vehicles
    4) Off-road vehicles

    Georgia requires a title for 1986 and up vehicles, 1985 and older is optional.

    No DH, they won't ISSUE a title for anything older than 1985(?) unless you have a title from another state etc.

    The trucks we have are both 1992 year models and require a title.

    I'm told there has been a big change around of personnel in Atlanta (I know there has been in our local DMV). I think it's just a matter of finding the right person who knows what they are doing.

    Yes and No.

    As others said, 1986 and newer vehicles are required to have a title.

    If you have a 1950-something to 1985 vehicle, they will issue a title if you already have one (previous owner, SF97, etc.). They'll tell you it's optional because the DMV doesn't want to do the additional work, but they'll do it. clintogf and I have gotten a title for every single deuce we got from GL.

    The old stuff they won't issue a title for, even if you already have one. Went through this with our M38A1.

    In 1998 I purchased a '68 Shelby out of Ga. and it came to me on "Bill of Sale" only. That caused me some headaches at my Utah DMV when they required a title. Had to get a copy of the Ga. law to get them to accept the Bill of Sale" to license and title the car. So I feel for you guys, sure a pain in the a$$.
    If you have more than one car in your drive way, your a car collector.
    '68 Shelby GT-500
    '75 Bricklin SV1
    '87 M985 HEMTT
    M101/116A3
    '02 M1082
    '14 Ford F150 Tremor (1 of 288 produced)
