I wouldn't touch it until the paperwork is in order.

Did he pay taxes on the previous transfer? That could be the free spirit's motivation for not transferring title and updating the registration (is the registration current?)

Been a while since I lived in CA but my memory is the franchise tax board has no sense of humor and a memory like a UNIVAC (dating myself). Probably worse now with the state debt climbing like honeysuckle in the spring.
