Get insurance, Bill of sale and just drive it home. Plate it when home. I don't think you need plates for insurance.

At least that is what I would do.

Best option is to find a trucking company and have it delivered here.

You can sometimes find them already hauling to this area and they won't charge as much.

When I bought my Mach 1 in Virginia, the dealer put a temp tag on it (VA) and arranged it with a private line haul and it was bout $450. Paid cash when the car was delivered.

The car does have insurance, have you or anybody you know ventured to drive a car under these terms?

When I bought my supra from SC, I ran the owners plates and had the title in the car. Wasn't hassled.

I'd just make sure you have proof of insurance, bill of sale and or title and drive it home.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about it honestly. Like mook said, if the owner is willing to leave the plates on that might make it less likely you'll need to deal with police.

I have bought cars in IL and driven them home a couple hours with nothing but a bill of sale and title. I probably should of had insurance too

However, you'll get in a ton of trouble if they pull you over and run the plate (so I've been told in the past. I got lucky.

Thats around 750 mile drive, about 75 gals of gas at $4 per/gal thats $300 in just fuel.... about. And you are comfortable driving a $1800 car all that way? Was there no local crown vic's in Chicagoland???? I bought my car from Virginia and had it shipped for $500, but I'm not a Millennial so I'm obviously loaded.....

And who is paying 4$? Its sub 3$ for regular.

Maybe its 2 fill ups. Those have huge tanks...19 gal according to google.

2 fill ups would be my guess. Maybe $100 tops for the whole drive.

But how you gonna get there? Could fly to each Virginia airport for around 115$ one way. So $250 with flight, gas in way home and cheap food.


If you drive there with someone and drive both cars back, then shipping might be cheaper overall.

I bought the Cadillac in Mississippi and drove it back.

I bought the new van in Oklahoma and drove it back.

As long as you have a Bill of Sale (obviously buying from a dealership you should have a shitload of paperwork), and that YOU are covered by your insurance company (You obviously won't have insurance on that specific vehicle yet as you just purchased it), you will be ok.

I drove my 3000GT daily for 6 months without plates with nothing but a bill of sale and insurance while I waited for the title to show up. Got pulled over 13x and ticketed once for no valid registration, but none of those were on the way home with it from Breckenridge, CO. Just drive it back. In the unlikely event that you do get rolled on that trip, just politely explain the situation, show the bill of sale, and show insurance. Will you have the title? That would be even more helpful to show.

P.S. I do not recommend driving the car with the former owner's plates, except maybe for the drive home to avoid suspicion by driving without plates. At least in IL, the plates belong to the owner, not the car.
