Actually, I did have plates on the car I picked up in Delaware...although they were plates from my other 88 90q, I figured they were the same year, same model, just different colors. I actually forgot to chang the plates back for a couple months.
I drove with no plates on my 4Motion for 10 months and about 10,000 miles! A trip to Mardi Gras and northern Wisconsin. I had never bought a car that expensive so I didn't have the $1000 for tags and taxes. I'm used to my cars only costing my that much!
Iowa is pretty relaxed with their licensing laws. Plus, I know most the ladies that work in the office. Small towns are great!
