My questions are many, so hang on - I am getting ready to make a move (leaving a job of 5 years to start a completely new career). It seems to make sense that I would have better luck purchasing/leasing a new car now before I leave, rather than waiting until I get to my new job. The state I live in does not have sales tax, and has very low registration fees but the new one does have sales tax and very high registration costs.

So here are some questions I'm wrestling with...can I buy a car in the state I live in now and take delivery in the state I'm moving to? Will I be charged by the dealer to do that? will I still have to pay the sales tax when I register in the new state? can I set up a lease and then move to another state?

I am also trying to research which car to buy...and am looking for a specific type, not a specific model (V-8, 4 door passenger car, GM or Ford)..does anyone have any suggestions as to good websites where I can search by those specifics? I want to have a fuel conversion package installed in the car, that's why I need to meet those requirements.

Thanks for any info
