Hey guys, I've been searching the net for this and haven't run into it yet. My dilema is that I need to repo a car I have never seen. I have the registration and the bank papers, but there is no mention of the model or color :wtf: Does anyone know where I could find a vin breakdown like the one we have here for the acks?

if its a honda vin, goto the honda/acura owners link, when u sign up you can put in the VIN#, it'll give u some info like color, and a few basic info, you can also goto carfax or that othersite and put in the vin and it'll give you some info too

Damn soooon, you rock! I've been googling and searching and couldn't find anything and didn't want to buy a carfax. I tried carfax but it doesn't tell me the color. I'm really suprised that the loan papers didn't have the color. I also have to pick up an '03 Harley with the Accord. At least I know what color it is now, so I don't steal the wrong one! That would suck...:rofl:

It had everything correct as far as what the vin told me, so I will assume it had the color correct. Hopefully it hasn't been repainted or some shit :giggle: I'm going to head that way this weekend to scope things out. I've been looking for this bike and car for more than 6 months, so I'm not in a huge hurry. But I can't wait to get my hands on it! The part that sucks is the bank doesn't have the spare key (dumb) and the best I have is a lockout kit. Hopefully the guy just gives the shit up and doesn't make it hard on me.

Lmao! I'm taking my 6'2" bf, who used to be a cop and beats up shoplifters for a living. This guy has no chance between him and me being a hotheaded italian! Ha ha ha!

I thought banks just send out repo guys to take care of the dirty work... I watched a neighbor's car get taken once.. they just jimmied the door and were gone in about 90 seconds. When I asked what the hell they were doing.. he just said "I can't tell you" and I immediately knew I should just mind my own bidniss.

Also, there was a guy down the street that was rumored to leave his garage door 1/2 way down, with the ass end of his pickup sticking out, just to tease the repo man...

I don't live in the 'hood, I swear! :D

We have a PI business, which includes repos. Usually you get a spare key to the car, but the girl that got this loan with her boyfriend worked at the bank the loan went through. I've got a lockout kit that will jimmy the door in 30 seconds or less, but driving off with the car is usually easier if you have a key. Most people don't know that if you completely refuse to give up the car, the repo man can't use any type of force to take it.

The guy I saw just hooked up to the tow truck and off he went.. does that count as force?
