Travis has been very helpful to me in this matter and I may use his services if I end up taking the car to Laredo.
I thought you have a Mexican partner? Could you not use him for the service. As Travis said: This nationalization must be done by a Mexican citizen. Your gardener or neighbor might be willing to help you. In other words, if they'll "loan" you a copy of their credencial de elector, for the paperwork process, you can get your vehicle nationalized.
When I went to the Guad offices, my being a gringo was not the problem. Further, you live in Hermosillo (??) and it is only a few miles to the border. I suspect you will have to go to Nogales, but if it can be done outside Sonoita, you should find no lines.
A fellow San Matean - or is it San Mateoan?
