Years ago I almost bought a hard to find Corvette Zo7 in California, I am in Florida. They had one of 2 in the country with that spec at the time. The dealer told me i could purchase and ship to Fla with no issue. BUT if i wanted to fly in and do the deal and drive home, I had to pay california sales tax first which was not reimbursed or credited when I titled it in Fla!!! So double sales tax to drive it home. I was thankful i did all the numbers with the sales guy and he caught that. Cancelled the deal and bought the only other one in Ga, and drove home. IDK if that is still the case, but something to consider. I have bought in several other states and never had that issue come up, sales tax was paid in Fla at time of title and registration.Grab a SouthWest flight to Bakersfield, SLO, LAX, or BUR, all of those areas just south of you are MSRP, no markup, and you will save thousands with a $99 flight and some fuel.
