I live in west va. and have a car in Pa without tags, is there some way I can get a permit or temp tag to drive it from there, Pa to here, WV

It is a collector car just fixed up and I do not want to tag it and get insurance for it until the next warm season, for showing

Go to the WV and apply for a permanent plate using the ownership documents you have. They should be able to give you a temporary plate to use until the permanent one arrives. Collector plates are not that expensive and other states often overlook details for a car in transit.

Often, the "collector car" insurance can be very cheap. Many of the prices discussed on the speed channel are attractive.

If you are buying the car in PA, go to the state office to buy a temporary transit plate to keep you legal. Make sure that you find out what documents they will require and don't try it on a Friday afternoon near the end of the month.

The other option is a trailer or towing it.

You could try the back roads, but that can be risky depending what you are are going through.

I towed it up there and had a guy install a 440 450 horse motor in to it replaceing the 318, so i want to drive it back considering the power change.

440 six-pack? Love those things? Took fairly recent photo of what I'd call a cherry, calender-quality, 70-73 Cuda fluorescent green with those flat black vertical dashes down the side that start out small and get bigger, flat black hood with hood pins, huge racing meats. Was parked cross wise in Walmart Supercenter here. That is my dream car. It looks as modern today as back then. Timeless.
