Legal Question in Consumer Law in Georgia

I purchased a 1997 vehicle on 3/15/13 from a used car dealer. Paid in full with check that has cleared. To date I have not received the title, nor has the title transfer been made available to the DMV- in 4 days the second (and final) temporary tag will expire, & the dealer has still not been forthcoming. What recourse do I have?
