Exclamation -URGENT- Used car title and seller different names?

I currently just purchased a used vehicle. This is my first time so please remember that.

The SELLER Spot on the back of the title is currently filled and dated as 1/20/2014 with the original owners name.

I bought it from my neighbor who originally got the vehicle from him - and fixed it up to get it running as best as he could on that date of 1/20/2014 - but he did NOT sign the BUYER slot on the back of the title.

Today on 4/16/2014 I purchased the vehicle from my neighbor (not the original title owner).

My questions in NEW YORK - are what am I going to need to get this functional?

I have a Bill of Sale with my Neighbors name on it with a date of April 16th, 2014 and the title having filled as 1/20/14.

Don know ny but here in IN you would just sign the buyer spot. There will probably be a fee since it didn't get registered within the 30 days of purchase date though.

Yeah just sign the buyer, no big deal. Your neighbor never owned the car, pretend he doesn't exist.
