Wow, that is not good news.

What is the VIN?
Have you looked up the history you are able to pull on this vehicle?
What state was it originally from?

Try the VIN here:
https://www.nicb.org/vincheck

This will tell you if a vehicle has been reported as stolen, but not recovered, or has been reported as a salvage vehicle by cooperating NICB member insurance companies.

You could also spend about $12 to get a history report if you don't have one already.

Here is a link you can use:
http://www.autocheck.com/consumers/ebay.do?siteID=202&vin=5NMSH73E47H051674
Just replace the VIN # at the end with yours.
The VIN # on that link is just a random vehicle I found for sale somewhere.

Or if you are lucky you can find someone who has an autocheck account or carfax account to run the VIN # for you.

Thank you guys, I appreciate it! I did a few free checks and it wasn't stolen or total anywhere, but that's about it.

So......

Looks like this car was never ever registered, or the records are lost. Originally from Louisiana though. received_362477847674327.jpg
