Has anyone ever done this. I tried an internet service, but they only go back so far. Any ideas on where to start?

BTW - It's a 64 Caliente

It's hard these days with all the antistalking laws. Plus time isn't on your side, as they have no reason to keep these records forever. Sometimes you can trace the owners backwards through the person you bought the car from and so on.

Yeah, you're probably right. I'm just curious as to how my car made it all the way from Los Angeles to Minnesota over a 38 year time period. What a story that might be!

The DMV in NJ purges their records after 10yrs. So you got to hope that the original owner sold it 10 or less years ago.
