Somehow my wife never got her car title. Twist: then she changed states.

My wife bought a car in 2010 in Georgia, and somehow never saw a title. All the paperwork is legit, and it was registered correctly in Georgia, but she has no memory of a title. It seems she never got it. We kind of forgot about the complication until now, when we're trying to sell it.

She moved to CA and was able to get CA plates and registration, etc, but no title. And her registration says on it:
**NO TITLE ISSUED/VEHICLE NOT TRANSFERABLE**
Crap. Oh, and did I mention that her name changed since we got married, and so the registration is in her old name, since she didn't have the title?
Anyway, we're trying to sell the car, we have three offers on the table (who knows how long they'll last when they find out there are title complications), but we have no idea how to make it happen.
If we apply for a replacement title from CA, I think they'll say "you never had a CA title, so we can't replace it." If we do the same from GA, they'll say "your car isn't registered here, we can't issue you a title."
