Restomod Pacer
« on: October 21, 2021, 07:23:33 PM »
Has anyone seen this car, or does anyone know anything about it?  I am curious about how it's registered. If you watch the video, and pause at :29 sec. You will see both the original Trim Tag and the VIN have been transplanted to the glove box. I can understand the trim tag as the smooth the Firewall, but moving the VIN to a different location? Can't see if there is a new VIN in the original location (ie registered as a kit car) nor do I know why anyone would do that since it was a real car, but if not, is this even legal??   Car info:   https://www.aidesign.com/work/1969-camaro       Video https://youtu.be/b15YCTmaIcY.

May have had a recon title with state-issued VIN. See them on ebay periodically.

Original tags there to demonstrate it was built up from a real one.
Learning more and more about less and less...

Thanks William...... Does CRG have anything in their database on that VIN? Just curious in the car was either a wreck and one of the several sets of VINs and Trim tag combos I have seen for sale on Ebay

I notice the business owner references the fact that it came to them as a previously "restomodded" car, which had been poorly executed - I wonder if it may have even started life as a Dynacorn body. Make sme shudder to think it was a genuine Pace Car and then altered /modified to the current version. Just not my "thing" to see that, makes me shudder to think of hacking up original cars.
