Live in New Orleans. Have family and do some business in Atlanta. Atlanta had an incredible 25 year plus economic run. I would say that it has seemed to plateau if not decline a bit in the last 5 years while New Orleans is on the upswing.

It said you had to present a certified check within 5 days for the full amount of the tax, title and license which they estimated at 25% of the value of the vehicle. I guess that means you can't wait to s...
