RE: Can I see where my old car is?


Is there anywhere I can type in the VIN and see if it’s been scrapped, registered to someone else, etc? I really miss it and I’m curious where it is now. I don’t care about any names/addresses, or who actually has it. Is that possible? I’m in the US.

No you can’t. When you signed the title over to someone else, you gave up any and all rights of tracking that vehicle.

Yes, yes I know you miss your old vehicle, and I totally get it. I signed off my 1992 Nissan Barnburner (that’s my name for it, officially it’s just a long box pickup) 20 years ago, and I still miss that truck. That truck and I went through hell and back together and then some. She protected me through a tornado between Chatham and Windsor, I protected her from a would-be thief in Toronto, and we logged thousands of km’s together. But last time I looked, she was a motorized wheelbarrow on a farm somewhere and I was driving 3 kids around in a luxury SUV.

You can’t find out who now owns your old vehicle, not anymore than I (or anyone else) can look up your confidential driving record. And be glad for that.
