I'll be the first to say thanks. Pulled a vin of Craig's list, car looked fine. Vin came back salvage due to Front end collision. Pretty good for free. Lol hope car fax don't find out about them

Thanks...This was AWESOME!!

Just went trough about 10 of our old cars (all the VIN's I could find in a pinch) and it was enlightening.

Some are going the distance, some not so much...:

My 1989 Nissan Maxima I bought new. Now 24+ years old (last registered this January, just 10 miles from our current house). On 3rd Owner. I cherished that car. Only saw it once since I sold it after 14 years. Superb quality and it shows.

My 1988 Civic LX bought new. Died in 2002 in New York City. 312,000 miles. Unreal.

My Dad's cherished 1991 CRX Si. He bought it new. Sold it in 1999 when he retired early (at 55) and I begged him to keep it. He said they didn't need 2 cars at their new home here in Florida. Sold it for $8500 with 38K miles. Beyond Mint. Sold to some kid who wet himself at the sight of it.
Looks like he left the Philly area for Cali. Would not pass inspection at 60K miles, and was summarily wrecked in 2001. How absolutely sad. BTW: Dad admitted I was right and dreams of owning another (now at 69). Told him he'll never find one. Now his pride and joy is dead (long ago, it appears) RIP Rollerskate!.

The 1996 Nissan Quest GLE we bought new to take trips down here from Philly to Florida. That van was one of favorite vehicles. Still going strong in Mt. Dora Florida with 267,000 miles. Who says a Nissan/Ford collaboration would produce junk cars?!

There are others, but you get the picture. I gotta see if I can scrounge up the VIN of my beloved first car: The 1983 Chevy Chevette CS.

Maybe that thing's still goin'....

Found out mine was in two accidents back in 2007, I guess that explains why my Accord emblem is missing from the rear bumper

The 3 pre-owned cars I bought/have all came back clean, guess I knew what to look for when shopping for pre-owned cars. ;-)

The 1996 Integra GSR I sold almost 6 years ago is still in circulation within 30 minutes of me and accident free, kind of neat, I enjoyed driving and wrenching on that car!

Awesome, thank you! My old Taurus (240k miles) was sold and now resides in a town 2hr away from me. I was certain it'd be scrapped when I traded it in...maybe I should try to get it back lol

I think I'll make this thread a sticky. Otherwise, it maybe hard to find when you need it.

I think it is a very good idea to keep some information on cars you have sold or traded. Such as: VIN, date and mileage when sold, and who it was sold or traded to.

I have a friend who traded in his old Nissan at a local dealer and almost a year later it was abandon after a wreck. The cops came after my friend because the title and registration were still in his name. The dealer he traded it to sold it without turning in the proper paper work to the state. To make matters worse the dealer told him it wasn't their problem and he had to prove to the authorities it was no longer his car. Fortunately he had the paper work showing he had traded it.

FamousAudio, thanks for the link it will be very useful.
