He has a lien on the car, so does not have the title in hand. I plan to pay to have the car shipped. I'm paying cash.

So how do I pay off the car, get the title sent to me, and have the car show up with no risk?

If this isnt possible, I'll keep looking.

I was thinking maybe I can have the local dealer where he bought the car handle the transaction? I "trust" the dealer. Maybe I would even fly in to drive the car, check it out, and do the transaction in person.

You pay the bank or who he has the lien with. Arrange with them to send the lien release to you. Shouldn't be too hard. He has the title, it just has the bank on it. You will take the title and Leon release to title in your state.
