What???   Does this mean the saga is over???  Was looking forward to the next series...

As so often, it just takes one sensible intervention and through path of least resistance the rest just falls into line.  Well done!

It’s an unfeasonabily shiny red 105, the saga has only just begun (I hope not though)

….. because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our 105 Alfa’s, it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones… rusty. :)

Hesús, what a massive palavasaga - well done for not killing somebody :)

If ever there was an example why some things in Aust. should just be a Commonwealth/Federal responsibility instead of multiple state entities with different rules/laws (cares), it’s this.


I’d be looking forward to my first beer
(It’s already open though)

Congrats

Thank you. It was worth it in the end, because it is such a beautiful machine :)
I admire your perseverance and the beautiful motor involved - Well done! Your "Glow" must be the same colour as the car!

I fell in love with the car as soon as I bought it, so I am chuffed to bits that I finally have this all sorted now. :)

Only took about four months in the end, and a few more grey hairs. Thank you!

Believe you me, I've had it checked and a body shop go over it with a fine tooth comb as soon as I got it, and so far so good. I never thought getting the thing registered was going to the most difficult part of ownership of this car..

Congratulations, and what sweet looking ride it is.  Though a few more pics wouldn't go unappreciated  ;)

CRAIG:  If the Feds had control the car and owner may have simply disappeared in the dead of night with evidence of their histories erased forever!
 One advantage of the federation is that if it doesn't work in one State you can try elsewhere........  :-)

Congrats on finally getting it registered.  I think the solution you used was excellent.

I purchased a 105 GTV some years back and after sometime noticed that the chassis number on the WA rego document didnt match what was on the car - it was out by 1 digit.  Someone had mistaken an 'S' for a '5' (or something like that) back when it was registered in QLD.  I then moved to Victoria and when I phoned Vic roads to get the car registered I told them the story they advised to take it to Lygon street and get it inspected.  They then entered the corrected the Chassis number in their system and I got the car registered in VIC. When I moved back to WA some years later I re-registered the car using the correct Chassis number - so all good in the end. 

All it takes is for a public servant to make one typo to cause a world of bother and inconvenience.

My guess is that these sorts of stories are are not uncommon.
