Thanks everyone for the input. 🙏🏻 I'll do a little more research, but sheesh, it sounds stressful – and I thought I'd be saving some stress by not having to sell it here and buy another car there . Sounds like it'd be less work to go that route after all.
The car is sentimental - it was my mom's who passed a few years ago. Also it was a "granny car" meaning barely driven: 10 years old but only about 57K miles. But it sounds like even the age of the car alone, plus all the other factors you've brought up, could require quite significant hassle.
