please give me a reality check .. in short i never bough / sold a car before .. a friend of mutual friends from Taiwan is leaving the country and is asking me to try and sell his 1998 Honda Odessy .. for $2000.. he purchased it a month ago .. and did not transfer the title or registration .. in return - in a mutual agreement - I can drive it around for moment being .. good for me .. as i am visiting LA from NYC and without a car .. but what should i check for? * title - it is still in previous owners name and he has not transfered it over to him self ... is this a concern when reselling? * registration - he is in an agreement with the previous owner to let him use it for moment being (it expires in few months) * papers of sale - do i need them as proof for new owner? not sure if they paid any taxes or how did this work .. I assume not .. so what should i expect when selling it to a new owner .. * insurance - I assume i will be able to call up Geico and have it insured to drive around mm * what else? i imagine there are a dozen other things to consider .. like i should get AAA .. as it is prone to a possible break down .. please advise .. thank you .. ================== PS in details: this new friend of a friend i met at Burning Man .. is from Taiwan .. he bought a 1998 Honda Odessy .. for $2000 .. works OK he went from Reno to LA .. he planned to sell it .. but he ran out of time .. he want to park it some place around LA toll free as he will be back for short period from South America to go back to Taiwan .. or in a mutual exchange he can let me use it while i try to sell it for him and MoneyGram him the money .. this i great as I am from NYC out in West coast and need a car .. OK now I just want to make sure i have all aspects covered as i see it .. it is a no real risk situation for me .. i will honestly try my best to sell it and give him all the money .. but if for what ever reason i can not .. i park it some place for him?
