I think the key is immediate transfer of the title. I don't think you can register a car in any state without that. If it's a private party sale, don't hand over any cash without getting the title. And find out what specific info should be on the bill of sale to facilitate registering it.
Bought a CPO Volvo in Seattle in Jan 2016, drove it to SoCal in two days with 48 hr temp plates, but was unable to register it for three weeks because the original title was with the Hawaii DMV in Honolulu and it took that long to go Honolulu to Seattle dealer to LA County house.
Paid cash so I was able to drive off the Volvo lot in Seattle without paying sales tax. Had to pay sales tax in LA County as if I bought it here. If I paid WA sales tax, CA would have credited me the amount paid to WA for the CA amount due. Probably the same NC to MA.
