For those of you in Texas who have yet to title their cars, I just titled and registered my car here as a custom car Replica. It could not have been easier!! I just faithfully followed the instructions for a later model Replica (vs the pre 50s ). The biggest deal is I had to get a one time inspection by an ASE master mechanic (Monkey Mug Motors in Houston who were super easy on me) The Key is I said the car is a replica of a 1989 Mercedes C9. Pictures look just like it. I used the VIN that RCR gave me and I stamped it on a strip of aluminum that I affixed to the frame with two sided tape because the inspector said the car had to have a VIN on the chassis. I took pictures of my stamped VIN and of the engine gm part number label sticker which I told the DMV was the engine serial number. Was an absolute piece of cake at DMV. In and out in 30 min! The real benefit is that a Custom Replica does not require annual inspection and you get a custom plate. Mine is GUAPO1.
