    Default Finding info on original owner!

    Hey guys,

    I want to see if I can find out who was the original owner of my 1970 240Z (HLS3002126). I'm pretty certain it was a SoCal car from day one. And to the best of my knowledge, I am only the second owner....since 1983. If any of you have experience in this area, please throw me a bone if you will! I'll see what I can find in the archives too.

    Thanks, ahead of time!

    Tom

    I think DMV has become really strict with information. As well as they should be I suppose. I can't remember how exactly but I was able to find out the original owner of my 53 Chevy pickup many years ago and when my dad and I bought a 67 roadster, it had no title. So we had to send a certified letter to the previous owner to tell them the car would be auctioned. Then if they didn't show, the car is yours.

    You may want to look at how that process works for this.

    Tom,

    I did a Google search and came accross an XML file on this VIN that stated the following:

    1970
    HLS30-02126
    Now L28
    03-70
    Now 5 Spd
    905 Red
    Black
    Purchased late 1983 from PierreZ, refresh in 2000....many upgrades and mods, weekend toy!


    Have you tried contacting Pierre Z and asked if they have any old records on your vehicle?
