    Question for a car in storage

    Hey Fanatics I have a car that has been in storage for the last 3 years because of a blown motor. My buddy has rebuilt the motor and now I want to register the car. I let the registration expire a few years back after it went into storage. Will I now be fined when I register it again, do I have to pay back registration? Was wondering how this worked.

    What I think you should have done is put the car in storage (red title) when the license expired originally. Then you can pull it out by just paying for the title update at the time you're ready to drive it again.

    If you didn't do that, and it sounds like you didn't, you are probably on the hook for all the years in between plus the penalties.

    It's been a while since I've done any of that so the rules may have changed, but I highly doubt the state of Iowa has done something that might result in LESS income, versus how it was before.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Question for a car in storage

    I had that happened with my dads pick up that I just parked in a grove for 5 yrs than I sold it. I went down to polk cty and asked they said just make a note that it had been setting for yrs and I just signed the title. The buyer didn't have any problems.
    Just check with the court house.

    I'm not sure this is the place to ask your car any questions. I'd try the storage unit, and meet with the car face-to-face.

    I think you're right. Probably best to check the Texas Tech board. They cover this in their Auto Mechanics 101 class.
