    theres this abandoned k5 thats been sitting in this parking lot for a few months. the front end is wrecked (not that bad, just messed up the hood, grille and quarters), has no carb, flat tire, and broken window. i just wanted to contact the owner to see if he would sell it to me.

    I remember going to the pomona swap meet a couple years ago. I went with my friend and his father (big bucks guy at a huge company..paid for the whole trip) anyways, he wwas thinking about buying this car at the meet for his son. He took the plate number and called up the local popo, they said "hell no we won't run a plate for you!" he called then next town over, they said "yea, no problem" -no questions asked :confused:

    i'm pretty sure it's not stolen, becuase it's in a pretty buisy parking lot out in the open, and looks somewhat suspecious, and i'm sure a police officer has driven by and ran it. if it was stolen, it would have been toted off to police impound. but, it's been sitting there for at least 3 months.
    dmv wouldnt give me the owners name would they?

    i just need to know how to contact the owner...

    Thanks BUBBA for continuing to maintain your high ethics....and for displaying same for the rest of us.... by NOT doing someone a favor :waytogo:


    most people dont realize its a FELONY to use confidential info for non departmental stuff... and policemen who do...or have done it... risk everything


    CLETS and JDIC now maintain a full time staff just keeping tabs on who runs what... big brother is your partner.....


    No... my livelyhood.. my house payment... my freedom... was never worth doing a "favor"....

    as posters said... if dmv wants to release it...cool... the liability is on them

    Most states have abandoned vehicle laws. If you wanted to, you could also use the VIN number for a title search.

    And just to think that someone out there at one time ran a tag and it came back as either stolen or was reported to be involved in a very serious felony and that guy ran it for kicks. Nope, don't need to be 'splaining that one to the powers..................................

    I just don't want someone writing my plate down and then be able to get my address so they know exactly where to go to steal my truck....


    Guy, you thought of maybe just leaving a note on the windshield? Worked for me before...

    In my state, you can fill out a form at the local DMV office, pay $20, and get whatever's on the registration card that goes with the plates.

    DMV's not giving out the owners SSN.

    woah fellas. ease up. i did not specifically ask anyone in particular to do it, and i certianly dont expect anyone to risk their job over it. if you dont want to do it, thats cool. i respect your integrity. i wouldn't do it either if i was a law enforcement officer. it wouldnt be worth my job. just thought if anyone wanted to, and didnt mind, they could. no big deal. it's ok though, because i got some info. dont know if it will help or not, but it's worth a try. to those who helped me, thank you!
