Is that a special VIN because when I enter it into Carfax it just says invalid number, probably because it's too short (VINs have 17 characters)? Also, they only do cars manufactured after 1980.

Hm, I took that VIN off of autoshopper. It was from some car I was looking at. I thought it was kind of inexpensive, and a fake VIN doesnt suprise me either..

I don't know if it's fake, probably just incomplete, or maybe it's an engine number, or sometimes dealers put in a stock number instead. Anyway, perhaps just call and find out the real VIN, I've got the carfax till Jan 10

Not bad, good swap car, and from the looks of it, those wheels are probably worth a good chunk of what you paid anyway.

1990 Toyota Celica ST

3 owners in New Jersey
No Accidents
Clear Title
Last reported mileage: 11/17/2005 167,570

Only suspect thing I've found is that the the car's most recent owner had his title transferred on 11/17/05, meaning that he's only owned it for about a month and is already trying to sell it. Just be wary.

Yes.. Thats the VIN to my car. After having it a month, I know exactly why they sold it. :owned:

Was that a little test to see how honest and perceptive I am with summarizing this information? :thefinger

I was just thinking...instead of having the code for :thefinger as "thefinger," they should have it be ":friendlyfuck:". Wouldn't that be funnier? :hehe:

Was that a bike VIN you originally tried? Perhaps Carfax doesn't keep records on bikes...I dunno. Perhaps send me a different bike VIN that you know is good, we can test it.

About the 1993 TOYOTA SHORT BED STD:
2 Owners in Tennessee
No Accidents
Clear Title
Last Odometer reading reported: 03/27/2000 75,801

There is nothing else of note. Looks good here.

Thanks man.. I figured out the bike. carfax does keep them, but the bike was only regiestered one time back when it was first bought... So they put it in a "purge File" so I dunno about it...lol Thanks anyway
