Almost everyone here knows my beloved blinged out slingshot. I have a legitimate interested party in Kansas, and I am in Massachusetts. I purchased it from a man in Oklahoma and shipped it here so it can work.
The guy is not a scammer, we have talked extensively. He's been looking specifically for an orange madness. He is very knowledgeable about slingshots.
He had some interesting title questions. Seems Kansas charges 11% tax on vehicle registrations, wow... He asked me what I thought of him making two purchases - one for the slingshot at say $12,500 then another for the mods at $12,500. That would save him a lot of registration money if I put $12,500 on the title. I will not leave the title blank, I know enough not to do that.
What does everyone think about doing this? Could it backfire in some way? Technically, he is paying for the mods as I am getting $25,000 for the slingshot, well beyond the stock book value.
