My current car is behind on payments and is scheduled for repo. I cannot afford to pay it off, but have found another car that I can afford to buy outright. My registration is current though the end of 2012. The current car is in both mine and my ex-husband's name. I received it in the divorce years ago, but it stayed in both of our names because I could not qualify to take on the loan myself. This other car would be in my name along with my new husband. Can this same plate be transferred to the next vehicle. It is a vanity plate that my children chose and also supports a charity, so we would like to keep it the same if at all possible.
