Trying to find my old truck

So its been a while since i have posted anything on the board.... Ive been lurking in the shadows.... but recently my son has been pestering me about trying to find my old 72 GMC Scott-built Crew cab.

I dont currently have a picture available, but it was in a thread on here with a for sale sign on it.

The last time I saw it was back in 2005 when I delivered it to Huntington Beach Ca.

Any suggestions on where to start?

I dont have any info on the VIN or anything.

I will try to post a pic.....



This is exactly how I delivered it ( complete with a parts cab in the bed)

I'm trying to do the same thing, except I just found an old picture that showed the license plate that was registered to me. I think I'll try getting the VIN from State records if possible.

How many were there in that color combo? I saw one that looked like that, but restored in Pigeon Forge TN for the fall grand rod run last month.

Re: Trying to find my old truck

I remember seeing your truck for sale but haven't seen it for sale around here or in the midwest. I've only seen 2 for sale in the last few years. They're getting real hard to find.

Re: Trying to find my old truck

Might sound a little "TV" but a private investigator might be able to access databases that tell where a VIN is currently registered. And if you go in person to register a current vehicle, I've had good luck getting information from the person at the counter if it's not busy. I would think your state would have all the vehicles you've registered in the database or files. Maybe somebody with DOL experience knows?

PI's work man! I got one to find my dad's old assistant machine gunner and in 24 hours he had the guy's phone number. Dad had been looking for that guy for decades!
