Question decoding further

Frankie, Thank you for the info. Where does the factory usually place the build sheet on these things. I havent had a chance to rip this apart, but its slated for a full interior soon as possible.

The build sheet should be in the glove box or the rear storage compartment. I think in 87 they were still in the glove box.

Skull & Crossbones

I just ran a Crafax report on your car. Send me your E-mail address so I can forward it to you.

Your car was originally bought at a dealership where I live--central Illinois. It comes back with a thumbs up on everything. The Carfax reports don't tell you about options on the car, but they do tell you when, where and how many miles were on it any time the title was transfered , any inspectioins(emissions) and whether it passed or failed, and lots of other stuff. If anyone wants me to run a VIN, let me know. Send me your VIN and E-mail, and I will forward it. My Carfax account expires in 2 weeks, so don't wait too long. Later.

OK everyone, I sent the last of the reports out today via E-mail. Carfax never responded to my E-mails, so I scanned the reports in and attached them to E-mails. Could everyone let me know that they got their reports OK, provided you haven't done so already? I had some problems with my Hotmail account not liking attachments, and I had to send some a second time. Thanks for everyone's patience and I hope everyone is pleased with their reports. Have a good one everyone!
