Seems to me that a frequently asked question around here is how to get a Model T registered in your name wherever you live. Would we have enough experienced members here to come up with a state by state breakdown of the steps required?
By the time you count US states and territories, Canadian Provinces and territories, Australian states, etc., all the hundreds of jurisdictions it would have to cover, I don't think you're going to find a volunteer to take on the job of putting it all together.
No reason it can't be pieced together as it comes up, plus it's going to save those "How do I title a T in Colorado" questions from being answered with "Well I live in Ohio, but..."
The internet is the way to find out, all states have on-line info on how to register and license vehicles including antique in their respective state.
Have found it prudent and time savings to read up on your state laws first, and download any forms needed, prior to visiting your local dept. of motor vehicles

I agree completely Dan, and I've easily picked up and registered a couple cars nobody would touch with just fifteen minutes of research online. Would be nice to consolidate it with a slant towards old cars with checkered pasts to save future digging through regulations.
Though posting how for every state could well be not worth the effort.
Dan You are spot on as to pre-check.! When I registered my '17 Depot hack all went well, the officer verified and check everything out. The catch is on the form in the lower left corner was for his signature and badge #========Opps he failed to sign ad date it oh and his badge @#.
Took the paper work to DMV and the gir;l looked all over and was ready to do the paper work and then she told me he forgot to sign= well that ended that trip32) miles one way to DMV. So off to CHP and he signed and apologized and back to DMV. Paper work was a breeze. My paper work was finished and in about 10 days came my title and new plates (MYTHACK. Boy that worked out great.
Too funny Stephen!
Am sure Bill's plate reads MY T HACK
And for that forgot to sign, did something similar and I have titled lots of T's.
Bought a '26 and the owner got a registration slip for me, that and Bill of Sale for my state requirements.
Only problem was, both the owner and I had vision trouble in the dark shed reading the motor serial, so we relied on his young son to read it for the paperwork.
Well, short tale, when the officer showed up at my garage to verify and sign, the block didn't match the paperwork......the former owner's son mis-read the number! Had to go back to owner and get new paperwork....ugh.
