Caxfax

Will give you the vehicles history..limited to

Where it was registered

dates

If it was totaled

failed smog

gaps in DMV records

odometer readings @ reg times( changing titles )

But no personal history like previous owners & names/addresses.

But you could do a DMV search and get that info... and I do not know how that happens!

My account expired on the 16th. But it won't tell you who owned the car. Just what state the car was originally titled in.

even date and state would be fine... If it is the car I think it is, it was purchased at jim rathmann chevrolet, in 1986... so even if i got the state and dates i could make sense out of it... i am considering a re-purchase:)

Was this an old car of yours? Or the families? I would think you could track down the VIN on some old records at the DMV.

yeah, i have to dig up the paperwork, which won't be easy... the car was hit back in '92, the insurance bought it from us.... before i spend hours looking it would be much easier to get a quick carfax... if it was registered in FL i will search... The car wasn't bad at all though, so I am sure someone bought it and rebuilt it... you can get a clean title on a rebuilt car by going from state to state, which would explain why it is outside of florida... I think it is the car because all of the options match perfectly, it has the convertible mirror wind deflectors (factory installed on very few coupes)

THANKS!!! too bad it looks like it isn't the car... I thought the chances of making two yellow vettes in '87 exactly the same were pretty slim, since they made so few of them, but they did it!
