Hi everyone. Long time no post. I'm needing help brainstorming a dilema I'm in. I sold and delivered my 914 to a nice gentleman in NJ. When he went to his DMV to move the title over to his name, they refused because the Arkansas title is missing a digit on the VIN#. Neither myself or my DMV caught it when I bought the car four years ago which means the original vin verification was incorrect to begin with. Long story short, they wont release a corrected Arkansas title to me without local PD giving me a Vin Verification but the PD refuse to do it without the car being present. Shipping the car back here for a 3-minute verification is not an option. Should I offer to fly a local police officer to NJ so he can perform the VIN verification in the airport parking lot then bring it back to me? It's such a mess and nobody seems willing to make an exception. I can tell everyone is "just doing their job" and following their scripts. HELP PLEASE!
