    Were you not able to get in touch with the person you sold the car to?
    I haven't tried lately but several years ago you could go to the DMV in Minnesota and pay a few dollars to get a list of registered owners on a car. Not sure if they still do that any more?

    Hello , thanks for the reply , i did try the DMV site , but could not find any spot where i could research the vin . so i will give another try . Also interesting is that i owned and raced the very same model car that you have . I owned a performance shop in Calgary Alberta , and raced our 1970 Camaro SS396 L78 4 spd. in those days ran 12.40 at 3500 ft elevation . great car , wish i still had both , but family , kids and money etc , oh well , life goes on , lol. L 78 lives somewhere in British Columbia now.

    Pretty sure you can't do it online. I would try calling but expect some runaround and a hard time getting thru to someone. When I did it last I had to go to DMV in person and pay a fee to request the info but that was several years ago.

    Cool to hear about your L78. What color was it?

    You have to go in person to the DMV. I did it in Ont for my 77 Z28 I ordered new.
