I'll need the license number and year make of the vehicle and I might be able to help. I also need the state its registered in.


Oh yeah. Re-check that vin and make sure its correct.

local "deputy registrar" like sears, can run a title search and tell you who the last few people who owned it and if theres any
tickets, etc...

costs about five bux... vin, plate or both cant remember....

think if you have cc you can do this online too, but they mail the
results :P

getting a clear title is amazingly easy:
certified letter of intent to last known owner's address
fill out the form
pay 135.00, or fill out another form which delcares you
unable to afford that fee...

some fool tried to steal a motorcycle i had in storage this way

Yes, you can check my web site for a 1980 to 1989 car. Beyond that I do have the VINs up to 2001.


JF2 means it is a 4WD

AF is a Hatchback

5 1800cc engine without air suspension

3 GL

B is weight class

9 check digit

G 1986

E Dual Range 4 speed tranny

the rest is the serial number.

So, you have a 1986 4WD GL Hatchback with a EA81 and a D/R 4 speed tranny.
