In Washington state "individualized" plates stay with the owner (handicapped, military/purple heart, personalized, collector, etc), regular plates go with the vehicle.

I am wondering though, what happens when a person buys a car from a seller, both from Oregon, & the new owner never registers the car? Technically the car, if involved in a hit & run or a crime, would be linked to the former owner. Could be a huge problem, right? Not being a wise ass, just trying to figure out how "you" protect yourself, not everyone is honest or does the right thing.
When I sell one of my cars I make a bill of sale with the time / date / selling price and make a copy of the buyers drivers license. We both sign it. He gets a copy. Also on the title the same information is filled out. You then give the information to the DMV promptly.

I sold a car to a guy on a Monday afternoon. That evening he ran out of gas at an intersection and he abandonded it. The car was towed to an impound lot and after a month the lot contacted me and said I owed them storage fees. I directed them to the DMV as I had submitted my paperwork the day I sold it. They never contacted me again.

So when you sell a car or buy one it's important you make sure the paerwork is correct and submitted to the proper authorities. It protects the buyer and the seller.

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

All this discussion about whether to keep plates or not. since Idaho keeps the plate, just take the VIN, and probably proof of insurance, to CA DMV and get a temp permit that you take with you and put on the MH once you start the drive back to CA.

Not true in California.
