Thanks for the reply. I can get the other code info to you. I downloaded a program a few years ago that I inputed the data to send, but didn't think it worked (operator error probably).
That is very odd about the other one being nearby, since I found that my car came from South Carolina in mid 70's to WV. I have WV and VA DMV records from mid 70's until present.
Also, I understand the data not being made public. I thought about that after the fact. It's sad that there are those who would use the info for counterfit purposes, but that's the world we live in now. Again, thanks for the great job you do keeping up with CRG!
