This car still exists and is still registered in some state.  I ran the VIN through NMVTIS and can see that it still exists.  Run the VIN through http://www.add123.com/ and pay $4.95 and you can know the state it is registered in.  With this you can see if you can track down the current owner.

I didn't pay the $4.95 to find out the state, but it is good to know that the car exists.

I just ran it. The car is in PA. Last titled in 2008. Now I just need to figure out how to find the owner.

Danny,
JohnZ worked in the plants back then. And I have docs from several dealers. No way is it 50%.
80-90% seems about what I see too.
Maybe it was a regional thing. Most dealers in my area sold lots of customer order cars. My mom and dad always ordered a car. It was in the 80's before they bought a car off the lot.

A lot more cars were special ordered back then than today. Back then there were way more options unlike today where you just have 2 or 3 packages to choose from. Almost everyone I knew back then ordered a car. It was very common. I'd say over 50% were special ordered.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rain makes corn.. on: May 13, 2014, 07:22:22 PM
Most of my corn is still in a bag. Started Saturday and rained out Sunday . Most of Saturdays rain stayed south of us but last night gave us 6 tents to 1.2 inches. Cold at the end of the week will slow it down. I have not seen any corn up in central ohio

Bill......all our corn is up. Maybe 1/3 of our beans are. Got 180 acres of beans to go then we'll be done. Probably finish tomorrow if rain holds off tonight and tomorrow. This warm weather really made things pop.

I'm a buyer if someone in the area wants to check it out for me.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 'Questionable' or FAKE cars.... Hemmings article on: April 04, 2014, 12:29:30 PM
Most interesting! I always like the topics that Hemmings bring to the forefront of the hobby. That last sentence about 2 stolen Iso's from Italy, I have a feeling, sums up the this car's identity. I guess more will come out as the facts surface.
On a side: I maintain a couple of antique car collections. One owner is deceased and the cars are in the estate. I worked on the cars when the owner was alive, but contracted with the Executrix's to do a monthly start up and keep cars in running order. I thought this would be short term, but now going on 3 years of doing this service. I am not sure what the status of the cars are, but I advised the owner when still living(of course) that he needed to get the cars titles straightened out. He apparently was not too concerned as he did not do as I suggested. Some of his cars where bought at auction, out of state. He never got some of these cars put in his name, I believe this as there is an out of state inspection needed for Ohio titles, which I offered to take care of. This could be what is holding up dispersal of the cars. I can only speculate as the heirs do not keep me informed as to the car's status's. All the cars are pre-war verts. all $100k plus, or close to, type vehicles. Most here, if not all, are diligent in documentation, I hope. Just a reminder, if anyone has something clouded or unresolved, that getting your affairs in order before you leave this Earth is my advice,nuff said.

Very dumb not putting title in his name. I'm sure the reason is because he didn't want to pay the sales tax. Big problem is that technically the title is still in the previous owners name. They could still claim ownership. I've tried to buy a few cars that guys are selling with open titles like that. I always tell them the title has to be in their name first or I won't buy it.

Getting a little worried. Seems we would have heard from Danny by now.

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Z28 Pricing.... $75K??? on: January 05, 2014, 05:24:06 PM
That's priced outside the range of the regular folks.
Honestly, I hate the new Camaro body. If I were to buy a new car today it would definitely be the new Challenger R/T.

Mike
In 2010 I bought a new fully loaded minus sunroof 2SSRS for $35K. Not sure how they justify more than double that. Hated the car. My son has a 2009 Challenger R/T and I love it. Way better car to drive.
