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.

1954 Packard Patrician (Blue)

This two-tone blue 1954 Packard Patrician had a California title in the current owner's name but had fallen from the DMV's database. The only way to regain non-op (non-operational) status was to verify it and, as it is currently inside a restoration shop in another state, some travel was needed to do the verification.

This right hand drive 1979 Mercedes G Wagen from the U.K. and now in Santa Clara is a grey area vehicle in that it does not have U.S. emissions certification and has a non-standardized VIN. In its favor, it is a diesel.
