All you need is the title and proof of payment (for your personal records, just in case )

how old are you?

Generally, if you have already made up your mind, you can take a money order made out in the amount you are willing to pay and some petty cash to finish making the deal

Here in Okla, its just a matter of signing the title in front of a notary, at the bank is where I do it. You get a signed title and the keys, (*)he gets the cash and you have 30 days to get the title and proof of insurance to the DMV to get it titled in your name.

oh, first time I bought a car, my father was there with me. Didnt know you were that young and going it alone.

Bonneville is a wise choice but you expected that here right?

Good luck!
