Tracking down an old truck.
In college, I had a 1994 C/K 1500 that I ended up trading in (stupidly) on my first Silverado. At the time, I needed a more reliable truck and honestly didn't think I'd miss the old one. In the past few months, I've had friends and family tell me that they've seen the ole '94 around in a nearby town. The truck needed alot of work when I got rid of it but now that I'm established in my career, I've got a little bit of money to start maybe restoring it to its previous luster if I can find it and talk the owner into selling it to me cheap.
I told that story to ask this question; If i have the VIN number, is there any database (online, DMV, etc.) that i could find the new owner's address? I know with privacy laws the way they are, it may not be possible, but i just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas or suggestions.
P.S. I've resorted to driving around the area to see if i can catch it on the road. No luck yet.Jason - Bossier City, LA
