    If it is a Canadian vehicle, why would you believe it would show up in any US system. Importing vehicles from out of the country has a lot of unique rules and actions.

    from what little I know about it, I understand you will have to deal with the EPA, the US Customs Service, and the DOT and that is all before you deal with the Washington DMV.

    Why would anyone purchase a vehicle that has no title?

    Really dumb.

    You don't get the plates, they stay with the original owner.

    Maybe a better way to approach it is that the title was lost or destroyed and you need to find out how you can get a new title issued. Maybe you can get a salvage title for it.

    The vehicle is already imported, however that happened. It really doesn't make a lot of difference where it was manufactured, which might have been the US anyway.

    The vin is not going to show in the WA system unless it had been registered there. Duh.
