Want To Know The STORY Behind Your Classic Car?

Correct Answer: You SHOULD want to know the story behind your classic car. This can help tell you whether or not you are making a good investment. Here's what you should look for and how to get it:


You may be able to find records of previous owners and make contact with them. While a DMV report may provide some information on previous accidental damage, it may not provide all the details. When restoring a classic, those details could come in handy, and could potentially save you from buying a car that may not be worth the money.


Try an internet search! Imagine finding out that your classic car was once been owned by an iconic Hollywood actor? The value and prestige attached to your vehicle would go way up. Determining where the car was made and who owned it in the past can be valuable information for any owner. But even more importantly, if you can locate the previous owners, you may be able to find out more about the care and maintenance of the vehicle over the years. Who knows? They may have some pretty awesome stories to share from when they owned it.


With a VIN number you can tell information such as when the car was made, the car’s original interior and exterior colors, and where the car was made. This information can be helpful when you're trying to restore that classic back to its former glory. Plus, if you're in the business of buying classic cars and restoring them for resale, in most cases, collectors cannot sell classic cars without having the VIN. And in many cases, with the help of the DMV, the VIN number can help you locate previous owners as well. You can actually do an online search for your VIN number using this website: https://www.instavin.com/_O/Classic-Car-Database/order
