The plot thickens.

OP: I'd hire one of those firms to track it down for you, why not?

And don't let the crabbypants/attention posters bother you. And I think the attention from the thread is because it's interesting. It isn't another "I hate AFM" " thread.

I was thinking the same... Only because Washington is on the other corner of the country and that's too convenient.
Or... they could be telling the truth.

Search for specific keywords on Corvette and GTR forums and see if the previous (or current, heh) owner posted anything about it that may give you a clue as to its current whereabouts. She was obviously a car person if the info about the cam & converter, Z06, and GTR was accurate, so maybe she's registered on another forum and just didn't feel like registering here. It happens. (You did search Camaro5, right?).

I wish you the best of luck, but just remember why you sold it and take that fully into account as to how much you want it back. I found a quote that might be fitting...

may have been shipped overseas!!???!!??

DOL in WA does not show the VIN as being registered there, they do show the VIN in their system, can tell what car it is, but it is NOT registered there currently!

spoke with a customs officer, she wouldn't give many any info on if that VIN was exported or not.

maybe someone knows a customs officer who may be able to get that info at least?

i tried!

Oh man.. Thank you SO much for finding all that out. Really makes me want to hire a specialist or just maybe it isnt meant to be. I sold the car 7 months ago and its this much trouble to track it down.. Maybe it's a sign, who knows.

I just tried through my DMV office... my office connects with DMV and HP. I'm gonna see if I can track down a HP officer and see what they can do.

Autocheck or Carfax won't show anything unless the car is registered, titled or inspected in Washington.

Wowwww really hope you find it because this will be one hell of a story to make the homepage!

As for it being shipped around everywhere, sounds like the story "black beauty" hope you get the car back dude
So it's been run by a "person" and current status is it has not been registered in Washington?
Maybe it was sold to Canada?

Calling the dealership AGAIN tomorrow. I really need to talk to whoever bought it from the Sarasota dealership rather they have it or not.

EDIT: Guys, the thing about drugs or diamonds was a joke. If I hid something this important in the car I wouldn't have forgotten about it. I'm pretty sure Tracy (Sc2150) would've found it by now with all the work we did to my car

Just got a PM from "InvaderMoose" offering me $5,000 if I can help return the car with all of the "items" still underneath the passanger seat. Not sure what this is all about but seems very odd to me....

What is kinda weird is if you didn't want to use it as a DD but you bought a Maserati AND a BMW? Why not keep the Camaro and buy one of the others as a DD? Not really my business but that just doesn't make sense to me.

Either way good luck man. I'm all for someone getting what they want no matter how weird it sounds to me.
