When My Dad passed away I got his car.

We get all the paperwork ready to transfer the registration into my name. We bring the will to show that we haven stolen the old guy's car.

Slight problem, since there are TWO executors named in the will, BOTH of them have to sign the documentation, and one of them lives in Ohio while me, the other executor and the car are all in Ontario.

But if the estate SELLS me the car instead of giving it to me, only one of the executors signatures is required for the transfer as long as we don't mention the will. OK, so I "buy" the car from Dad's estate(wink wink,nudge nudge), pay sales tax on $100, that being the "price" of the car(wink wink,nudge nudge) go to another licensing office and transfer the car over in about 4 minutes.

The Plan B was explained to us by the folks at the first licensing office, who were unable to do the transfer.

Strange :)
