Joe - On the surface that is perhaps the best idea anyone could have come up with. It sure sounds easy enough too but as with anything, I’m sure there is a long list of laundry issues that would keep that from happening. For example;
a. Do all states offer this information free of charge?
b. How does one verify the information he/she receives online is gospel?
c. How does one keep track of vehicles whose Drivetrain were once cloned and all of a sudden ends up finding its mate?
d. And, most important; what prevents a person/website from getting sued over posting false information even if it wasn’t intentional?
Something tells me “numbers matching crap” upsets CRG core members more than you or I will ever know. I am also certain if there was a more efficient way of exposing these practices it would have been done by now. Has CRG ever been hesitant to state whether or not a given First Gen is numbers or not? Nope, it’s like they can’t wait to let us know. And that’s just fine with me!!!!!!!!
