so through a friend i'm able to buy crashed cars dirt cheap but there is a problem. i pick them based on one picture and vin number. no discription. is there a vebsite where i can find out more about a car by using a vin number. i know i can find out engine, body and some basic things like that, but i need to know the tranny MT or AT type of stuff.

Well, there are VIN decoder software packages, I personally use the Toyota Electronic Parts Catalog software, it works on most Toyota VINs up until 2000ish, not sure what database I have.
