Hey buddy, got your PM but figured this info might help everyone in the general thread who needs it.

I went to the Monterey Park office as well and talked to Officer Gutierrez. He was pretty good. When he came out of his office, he already had a stack of research on the Noble, including some EBay ads for a Noble that was for sale in Ontario at the time. He showed me his research and he then proceeded to do his inspection without any fuss. If you get him, remind him that he did a red one in 2012 and that might help if there are any hiccups.
As for the BAR, do not go anywhere else other than Pierce. That guy at Pierce College has done several Nobles and Rossions so he knows the drill. The guy at Rio Hondo wanted to Dyno and exhaust test my car, which would have failed it and blackballed me. Do not go to Rio Hondo or anywhere else that wants to do more than just visually inspect the car.
When you get it all done, or even before, let's hang out. It'll be good to see another Noble in SGV. I'll even try to convince WHW7 to come out. He's got the sleek silver titanium M12. It's Jame Bond 007 level clean.
Nothing clever to see here!!
