David, thanks for the info. I did some google searches and learned that people have indeed registered cars in Oregon to avoid this tax. Do you know any specifics on this? I'm curious what mileage/timeframe criteria the CA DMV uses to define "used".

I purchased the van on the tail end of 14 years as an Oregon resident--when I bought the van I had not yet decided to move. Its a shame they don't consider residency status at date of sale in their calculation.
