C4 VIN lookup PLEASE HELP

Hi all,

Is there someone that could help me lookup the VIN of a 1988 conv.
Carfax tell me it has 9 remarks, but asks me $$$ to tell me what they are.

Is there a way to find out for free ? this Vette could be my first real Vette

Car fax is the only place that I know of that can give you the title history.

If the car was services at a Chevrolet dealership, they can run the VIN and give you the service history (if you ask nicely). That can give you a bit of owner history as well.

Sometimes folks here paid the $29 or whatever for Carfax, and still have an open account.

Otherwise, it's good money spent. :thumbsup:

Car fax is worth the 25 or 30 bucks, but you should also have it checked out by a good mechanic. :)

I agree, it is worth it, and after saturday, when I go to testdrive it :D , I will let a expert look at it if I like it, just would be fun to get the info for free.

So wish me luck, it may well be I'm going to forfill my 25 year old dream.

Please please Help

So, I went to the Carfax site trying to get my VIN info and what happend.. We are sorry but you have to live in the USA or Canada to use this service ....:(

So I realy need your help here friends.

Last saturday I drove the Vette and WOW it is good, but the 9 comments that Carfax reports ..... I realy realy would like to know before I buy it.

It is a white 1988 conv. with black hardtop, 70000miles, and red leather int.

So If one of you still have a Carfax account please help me out.

TIA
