I did own a 1977 Camaro but sold it around 1993 so I no longer had the bill of sale or anything proving I sold the car.

Turned out the car in question had the identical VIN to the Camaro I owned where it was copied to the derelict Camaro.

Why it was traced back to me than to the people who bought it or whom ever they sold it to I couldn't find out.
In Texas the DVM has a form you can complete when you sell a vehicle that lets the DVM know you have sold it. I have used it in the past and never had a problem.

It's not the rally we are talking about, it is the internet we are talking about.

I keep going back and forth. Which do you prefer? Just normal rolled sheet or HVAC tape? Tape sure stays in place better through any outdoor activity, but it's so much easier getting a nice peak for maximum signal deflection with the rolled sheet.

What's interesting is that where I live, the police department offers vin etching on every window in order to mitigate the risk of your car being stolen.
