      LOL. I thought you would like that barbee!!! That video could be about 95% of the people that work at the cotton mill where I work. When I first took over the cleaning contract there I was walking around and in the corners of the a hallway was a bunch of gunk. I asked the supervisor what is was and he said.........tobacco spit, eeewwww. Of course there is a sign in the hallway that says "No spitting"!!

        I’ll second that!
        And that I just can not understand at all.
        How many years since that war ended?
        That crap I hear sometimes pouring out of someone’s mouth is insane. About the most stupidest and wrong things I have ever heard. But by GOD! They will stand up and shout that they know there right!

        OK.... back to cars......

        So here's what I learned so far:
        1] Georgia is probably more car hobby friendly
        2] There can or maybe not be an Ad Valorem Tax on older cars but there will be a birthday tax
        3] Keep ahold of my titles because GA really doesn't need or want them.
        4] Grits need help. Maybe kethcup?
        5] I better start watching more fishin shows or gator wrastlin' and taking notes otherwise I'm gonna stick out like a sore thumb.
        6] And lastly - no one lives in SC or can comment on their car hobby because it's a secret how bad I'll get screwed with a vehicle property tax on 6 cars.
        Thanks all.:thumbsup:

            Look up the receipe for baked cheese grits casserole. Try it NO grits is not a cereal and NO you do noput milk on them!!! NO ketsup!
            I will venture to say way more people move into Ga than SC, 98% up in North Ga. area. Realize this, the native Southern talks slower, generally is not in as big a hurry, loyal to the South, treat women well, is the head of the house ( generally). Just be a genuine person and you will learn to blend into the South. No you will not change it so don't even try.
            There is Atlanta and then there is Ga.
            There is North Ga and there is South Ga.

            Back I the 90's I had the urge to move back South and start a boneyard like Ted Stephens. I knew there were stilll ots of good Mopars to be had cheap in SC back then, and I spent a week looking into it. I found the state law ( maybe different now), said if a yard sold it would revert back to being ag land, NO boneyard. I decided too much BS to even want to start a new yard. I bet IF I was important , I could have got the OK, but I am a nobody.
            Now it is hard being back in the Deep South of SE Texas. I lived in Missouri 39 years without all this humidity and some good wind about every day!

            2] There can or maybe not be an Ad Valorem Tax on older cars but there will be a birthday tax

            It can be inconsistent as my 73 Duster/71 Demon/72 Charger I only pay tag renew each year (so $20 or something a year). All three I had titles and got GA titles back for all three when registering.

            However when I registered my 70 Dart without a title I did have to pay the yearly birthday tax with tag renewal.

            3] Keep ahold of my titles because GA really doesn't need or want them.

            My experience is if you have titles you will get new titles. I have been told to by the lady at the tag office as long as you have a title they will issue a title. Some people have told me if the car is pre-1960 or whatever they may not but I have not personally tested that as my cars are all from the 70's.

            6] And lastly - no one lives in SC or can comment on their car hobby because it's a secret how bad I'll get screwed with a vehicle property tax on 6 cars.

            Was a couple years ago when I was trying to see my Dart without a title and NC/SC stayed stuck in my mind that you have to have titles to register and they didn't offer a exception like GA/AL will to register even without titles.

            Also someone mentioned emissions in GA and that effects the counties around downtown. So if you are closer to SC you would not have to worry about yearly emissions.

            Here in SC, the first question we ask is "where you'all comin' from?" 'Cause if you is a yankee, we don't need your 'kind' down here. Now, if you got a couple mopar muscle cars,
            we might can tolerate a visit or two, but ya gotta bring the mopars with ya on your visit.. :confederateflag::mob:

              GTS Dave - Good news and bad news. We bought a house (in the process of closing) in upstate SC so you'll have a yankee for a neighbor. Good news is I'm bringing the '74 Cuda, '69 Dart convertible and '69 Charger. If your post is for real then I'd like to tell you to pound it 'cause I really don't care what others think. But if its all in fun I'd love to talk to you about the local car scene and the area in general.

              Well, well.. Bring 'er on. 1st thing you have to address is your loyalty to the Clemson tigers. Two national championships in the past few years that you can't just shake a stick at.
              We're smack in the middle of the Nascar thoroughfare between Charlotte and Atlanta, only 45m to an hour to the mountains, 4 hr to the beaches, ton's of local car shows yearly, but most entertaining
              of all is the county fairs. Imagine seein' those folks that only come outa the hills once a year.. quite a sight:eek:

                Just be careful if they use yellow BBQ sauce!!! Just don't complain about the humidity and if it snows a 1/4 inch, just stay home for an hour till it melts!! hhahhaha

                  Yeah, I know. You all from GA helped me out with a lot of answers while the SC guys kept quiet. I met a car guy in SC a few weeks ago and he told me old cars in his county get assessed $17 a year. That's allright by me.
                  Umm...nope. Never been a college football fan. But, in all of our trips down we did notice everyone is veerrryyyy passionate about their Tigers or Bulldogs. Kinda scary passionate actually.
                  [/QUOTE] but most entertaining of all is the county fairs. Imagine seein' those folks that only come outa the hills once a year.. quite a sight:eek:[/QUOTE]
                  I can imagine. There's a few county fairs around here that are like our own little slice of West Virginia with bearded ladies and all.
                  I did a lot of research on the area. The humidity is nowhere near what we have in Pittsburgh. You guys have twice as many sunny days. And the lack of snow and extreme cold is very appealing.

                    If you and your family have the right mindset, you will fit in fine. Just remember there is Atlanta and the "rest" of the state. Also realize the Civil War never really ended, just delayed awhile due to lack of cannon balls and grits!! Also be advised the South moves a little slower ( except Atlanta) and marches to the beat of its own drum.
                    I was raised in rural SW Ga farming county. I mean very rural. I moved to Missouri in '79 at age 31 and lived there for 37 years before coming to Tx. . It was a border state so being from the South I did well living in SW Mo but was on the line in NW Mo. but I adapted. Only once did a guy want to whip my ass for being Southern.

                    If you're throwing that stone west you might hit our house.

                    Barbee6043 - I'm not too concerned about fitting in. We do get odd looks in a restaurant when we put french fries on our chef or steak salad. It'll be hard to go from yinz to yall and remember if there's ice on the road it will be slippery and not slippy.
