    Doesn't matter who pays. If the title and registration is still in his name, then it's still his car.

    Paying does not make it your car.

    If the proper paperwork has been filed to put it in your name, then it is your car.

    If not, then it is still his car.

    If your father takes you to the DMV and signs the title over to you (which, in my state at least, you can do without having to pay taxes - as it is a 'gift') then the vehicle is yours.

    As long as the vehicles title is in your father's name, it is legally his.

    When he gave you the car, did he give you a clear signed title? Did you take it to the DMV and transfer it to your name?

    If yes it is yours. If no it is not.

    Do some research on how the state title system works. Just good info to have.

    Go to state DMV site and read up.

    The person on the title is the legal owner.

    Only if the car is under your name it is legally yours.
