I live in a different rural county, but the VIN verification only required calling either the town marshal OR the State Police to let them know you would like to get it done. If you live within town limits, it is the marshal; if outside of town limits it is a State Policeman. Just make sure you have all the paperwork ready. Then you take the signed verification doc, along with all the other papers, to the county DMV office and pay your (expensive) fee.

In my case, the state trooper made house calls, since we live outside of town limits. I was thrilled, because we had two vehicles and one trailer to get registered in the same visit. And then one more vehicle the next month. I bet the state likes to do house calls because they see if you have a whole slew of other cars and trailers lying around, too!

I'll be around the corner from the marshal, right in town, with my one car, so no problem. I appreciate all the info from this forum!

My house is getting framed right now and I am hurtling towards my retirement date in January, then the move to CO in April. Getting the required Subaru in Jan/Feb. My mechanic knows a guy who can get me an excellent price. I think I'm going for the Crosstrek, higher clearance than the Impreza, which might really come in useful in Colorado.

If my old Matrix had AWD, I'd bring it but it doesn't. I'm selling it to a Nigerian co-worker who ships used cars to Nigeria and fixes them up there. Apparently they don't have a Massachusetts-like rust inspection there (said inspection being ridiculous, there is barely any rust and they say it's a safety hazard- another way to stick it to people with less money).

Giving up my Matrix feels almost like sending a pet off to another land, but I'll get over it. I mean, it's a car, and it will have a long and useful life with my co-worker's nephew in Nigeria.
