Hey guys,
My mother had a 1968 stang that she sold around 1974 or 75 when I was 2 or 3 years old. She passed away in 2004. Going through her paper work, I found the original warranty card to that car that you are supposed to discard once the dealer sent you your ownercard. The warranty plate has the warranty # and the vehicle data #.
Does anyone know how I can find who owns this car now? I am filling out a request for information form with the secretary of state, but not holding out much hope for that. Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks!

All I have is bad news. The state we live in has privacy laws that they will use so as to blow your request off. Funny though, I have a F.O.I.D. card that seems that these laws don't apply too. Remember, elections have results.

Also, most cars usually hit the junk yards between their 8 and 12th year. It is possible that the car is long gone. I striped and junked a J code 68 fastback about 20 years ago. It was that bad.

Good luck on your search. How about a little more detail on the car? Collor, engine, body style?:

Go to the local PD and tell them your sob story. They may not tell you the owner, but ask them to tell you if its been registered or declared a loss. If you pull a sympathetic ear they might slip you the owner by accident (eg, "Don't look at this screen while I walk away to get a fresh cup of coffee."). Remember most officers are "regular joe" types that probably have nostalgic memories for their Dads old Galaxy.
