Have you ever sold a car, and years later wondered what it was up to? I had a 1996 Camaro Z-28, VIN#2G1FP22P6T2139475 and am wondering where it is and if it is still on the road (or wrapped around a telephone pole). I sold it in April, 2000. Does anybody know how to do a title search to see if/where a vehicle is? I've heard that state law prevents this information from getting out to prevent stalking, but you can order a carfax report for like $20 that will tell you the last time it was registered or renewed. It there a free way to get this info, preferably on the internet? That car was such a big part of my life, I want to know if it is someone's baby, or rusting in a junkyard. Thanks

I do believe that registration records are public record.

true, but it is $15 and I'm not sure if it is worth tracking down all the owners where ever it has been. I was just hoping there was this "magic" website that might have some useful info.

COOL, thanks. My baby isn't too far from home Thanks Scottman, I'm assuming you have the unlimited access for 30 days, or are a dealer? Thanks again, and would you consider running another search for my first car if I can find the VIN?

I thought this was going to be a "I am drunk and cant find my car" post

On that note, did you ever here about the drunk who couldn't find his car when the bar closed? A cop found him sitting on the curb in front of the bar crying his eyes out. The cop asked him where the last place he saw his car and the drunk replied, "Right here on the end of my key" as he held up his car keys. The cop laughed to himself and said, "Why don't we go down to the station? You can get some coffee and sleep this off, then we'll find your car. By the way, why don't you zip up your fly before I have to charge you with indecent exposure. The drunk looked down at his dick and wailed, "Oh shit! The dirty bastards stole my girl too!"
