I lived in NC for many years. The plates stay with the owner and there's no provision for temporary plates except from a dealer, so there's no legal way to buy a car from a private party and drive it home. Plates are issued instantly with a title transfer at license plate agencies (different office than the DMV) so people often meet there to do the paper work, but that doesn't help you as an out of state buyer. Unless your current state can issue a temporary tag or you can borrow a dealer plate from someone you're basically hosed as far as NC is concerned. Other than getting insurance and a bill of sale and taking a chance driving it without plates, or really taking a chance driving with another car's plates, I'm not sure what to recommend.
