This nice fuel injected 1959 Chevrolet Corvette convertible with removable hard top was verified in San Jose at a shop specializing in the make of car where it was undergoing some adjustments and minor repairs after having been recently purchased in Texas.

1966 Plymouth Fury III

This nice 1966 Plymouth Fury III 2-door hardtop in Hollister was purchased locally a while back and is now being transferred to the new owner's name. I was going to try to use the build-sheet as the supporting document but it turned out to be for a different 1966 Plymouth Fury III as the sequence number was not the same! This may make registering it difficult so I'll post here once I learn the outcome.

2007 Keystone Everest 5th-Wheel

This 2007 Keystone Everest 5th-Wheel trailer was verified in distant and very rural Lockwood which is about a 2½ hour drive south from my closest location. The VIN plate had been painted over and, being black on black, difficult to find but was ultimately readable.

2008 T@DA Trailer

This 2008 T@DA trailer with the interesting name was purchased out of state and now resides in Santa Cruz. It was built in Indiana by Dutchmen Manufacturing.

2015 Maserati Ghibli

The San Francisco owner of this 2015 Maserati Ghibli purchased it from an out of state dealer. However, his son who lives in San Jose had the car when they realized that it had to be immediately verified and, as I was at my Santa Cruz location that day, he drove it over for verification there.

2017 Dodge RAM 5500 (2)

Two Dodge RAM 5500s with tanker conversions were verified, one at the owner's San Jose location and the other immediately after at my San Jose location. Due to the proprietary nature of the tanker conversion, only the wheel cover is being shown here.

2018 RAM 5500 Tank Trucks

Two identical 2018 RAM 5500s with tanker conversions were verified at the owner's San Jose location. Due to the proprietary nature of the tanker conversion, only the taillights are being shown here. A similar 2011 Dodge RAM 3500 tanker conversion was also verified in order to increase its official weight capacity.

Made by Mitsubishi, this 1989 Dodge Raider SUV was recently purchased and is now located in Santa Cruz where we verified it.
Photo of 1997 A-Z Mfg PTI Cargo Trailer
1997 A-Z Mfg PTI Cargo Trailer

This 1997 A-Z Mfg PTI Cargo Trailer now located in Vacaville was an example of a trailer manufacturer not knowing that the VIN must be stamped directly onto the chassis as it was not there so had to be properly stamped for the verification. In this case, only the federal certification label was there but that is not sufficient. If you have a trailer of any type, be sure that the VIN is stamped properly.

2017 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel

This 2017 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel was purchased in Oregon by the Scotts Valley owner who is a mobile vet so the vehicle is set up to carry all needed for the job.

1953 Chevrolet 210 2-dr Sedan

Nice Chevrolet 210 2-dr sedan has been in the family since new, or close to it, and is being revived to enjoy. Fresh paint, chrome and upholstery to the owner's tastes and with the original 6cyl engine "souped up" a bit with dual carburetors, it will be a great driver once completed. This car is located in Berkeley.

2015 Ferrari Speciale

Nearly new and just purchased from out of state, this beautiful 2015 Ferrari Speciale is now located in Saratoga but I verified it in Fremont where the new owner took it to get it checked out.

This beautiful retro 2015 Forest River Shasta Airflyte, a reproduction of a vintage style complete with chrome wings, was verified for its new owner in Felton.

1966 Chevrolet Impala

This 1966 Chevrolet Impala 4-door hardtop in Salinas has changed hands several times with no one ever trying to transfer the title so by now needed to be verified. It should be noted that the DMV now requires two VINs and the emissions label on vehicles of this vintage and it is up to the owner to be sure these things are in place.

1930 Ford Model A Coupe

This lovely and highly-optioned 1930 Ford Model A rumble seat coupe just arrived from out of state after its owner relocated to Sunnyvale from the East Coast.
