Did you mean past 1997? It is still 2007.

Depends on the company he went with, sometimes they only provide current data.

Spend the $20 on a carfax report and go from there.

Re: 87 gta convertible need history on it

only 2007.. totally lame..

i always used carfax in the past..thought id try something differnt..it cost 24.99 and said it would give complete history..

i ran all my other cars,and it seemed to work just fine..although not as complete as carfax was.

I had no idea it autocheck would be so crapy..anyone got a carfax account want to run my numbers for me?

Re: 87 gta convertible need history on it

I have a similar problem there is no record beyond about 5 years with carfax report... I thought maybe my car came from canada or something but I don't see any evidence of canadian sticker or anything. is there a better source than carfax? and the Dealership here said if it was a 1990 they could get info but mine is an '89

Not all agencies report to Carfax so there might be missing records. Here is Carfax's list of reporting agencies: http://www.carfax.com/about/car_rese...sefullinks.cfm
If it's not reported then it will not be on the report, plain and simple.
