Searching history on import car
« on: June 08, 2023, 09:12:25 AM »
Hi

I am writing from Denmark, and have had a long time dream of owning a 1gen Camaro, which has now come true.
Unfortunately the previos owner have had it standing out in every weather for almost 10 years, without driving it, so it needs a bit of restoration. But then we can make our touch to it.

I know it has been imported to Denmark in 2008 from Florida by previous owner, but he didn't have any more info on the car.

I am interested so see if I can find any history on the car and maybe some older pictures. It has been restored before with colorchange.
From the Trim Tag I found that it was born Butternut Yellow, and now it has a blue Color.
Also it has another Engine and changed from a Auto to Manual trans

I have ordered the NCRS report, so looking forward to see what can be found through that.

But I was wondering if it is possible to find any more info with help from you. Maybe links to where to search in Florida and other places etc. as I am not familiar with how such things works overthere in the States  ;D

Hope you guys can help me

Best Regards
Thomas for DK

Just for the reference,

This is how the Car looked when we bought it and after taking of the vinyl and preparing the Car for bodywork.

But of cause we got the Car for a good price and mechanical it is in good shape and interior is fine also.

Oh man. Mother nature has not been kind to that car! That's going to take a lot of time and money to repair. Other than the roof, how does the rest of the car look?

I have no idea, but I believe it has been on the car before it came to Denmark.

But could be interesting to search for info that way. Havenít thought of that :-D
