Ok so an update. After the second time service Az canceled my inspection I went into the adot inspection office. It was very nice and no line. The receptionist asked how she could help and I explained what was happening. Come to find out that it’s some it guy in a office some where that checks and makes sure appointments are filled out correct and if not it gets canceled. Here lies the problem to have a vin assigned the system needs a make model and year. Which if you build a car that has not ever had a known make model or year I.e. any tube chassis it’s insta cancel. So the Cricle continues cause when you call the message says to go to service Az and no option to talk to a human.
the receptionist leans over and talks to a adot officer and they see the issue, so she scheduled me a new appointment that is two days away and the h 4 week wait. the officer tells me that even if I get a canceled notice to come in.
so appointment time car is on the trailer and yes I am impatient so I get there a half hr early. Still no line same receptionist smiles and tells me that she had been checking on my appointment to make sure that it was still there. She takes my license and fills out the paperwork letting me know to wait outside and the officer would be out in a minute. So I walk out side where a Lamborghini pulling into the bay. The inspectors come out and start going over his car. I strike up a conversation with the man and he starts geeking out on the sand car asking all types of questions about the gear box and motor. Next thing the inspector says that his car is done so we walk into the bay then I’m geeking out on his car with the inspectors. It turns out that the Lamborghini had been side swiped wiping out the drivers side and he had just replaced it all requiring the inspection for the vin replacement.
as he pulls away I continue with the inspection officers and he loved the car. He had a injects VW with a type one trans so he had all types of sand car knowledge and we talked about glamis and changes that have happened. He walks back inside and comes out with the new vin and asked where I wanted it. Such a good experience.
I was thinking man to do this job you gave to be a car guy and guess what they are. Very cool guys.
after that it was in to the real mvd to get plate and registration. Lucky not busy and as I talk to the clerk she says that unless I can verify with recipes half the price I valued the car at I would need a bond. Ha I came prepared here is my recipes. The look of horror with the pile I gave her that she now had to scan in. I have never added up the recipes I got now I don’t want to. She stopped and haven’t made it a quarter of the way through the pile. Guess I should have valued it higher and here I thought I was high on value. Lol not
so for a bout a hour and a half under a hundred dollar and some new friends I will be in mother G this season.
