Ever wonder what happened to that old car of yours? Where did it end up, who owns it now, or if it's still on the road?
My first brand new car was an 87 Monte SS. Loved it, but had to let it go in 93. This very nice older gentlemen bought the Monte (see pictures) in Fort Myers Fla.
Fast forward 23 years to today, a friend ran a "Car Facts" on my old VIN# 1g1gz11g6HP151622 and discovered someone in Columbus Ohio still keeps it registered and valid (don't know name or address).
It made me smile to know it's still on the road. Don't know if I'd smile by see the condition it "might be" in today frown
If anyone knows of a Black 87 SS with Grey buckets and C&C aftermarket T-Tops in the Columbus OH area, I'd love to know if it's still in good shape.

I can't help either but I'd guess that it is still in good enough condition since it is still being registered. Most people don't waste the money on registering a car that is rotting away in the weeds. Post the VIN, maybe someone on here owns it but doesn't know the history of the car to make the connection.

Edit: sorry I see you already posted the VIN.

Maybe some members in that area know of it or could help spot it. If still being registered it must be at least in ok shape I'd guess. C&C t-tops would be the easy way to pick it out.

I hope you get info on it. I, conversely, want to contact the original owner of my 84 SS to let him know it's still "pretty" low mileage, still never been in the snow, smoked in, ect., and "maybe" offer it back to him. I called him once a year after I bought it for a few years to tell him such, he was always happy to hear that. Then I lost the number. He had to sell it to buy a mini-van for the growing family ! I know he cried when I drove it away.The state could not help with finding orig. owner. Keep us informed if you are successful !

Thanks Carl. Here are some picture I posted at the beginning of this thread before Photobucket changed their policy.

I had the same experience. Kept in touch with the new owner for several years but this gentleman was in his 70's when he bought my car back in 93. He would now be in his mid to late 90's today. I have the Ohio Title number from the Ohio DMV VIN check website BUT do to privacy laws they will not give out any additional info.

If the car is still in perfect shape, I wanted to give the new owner the second pair of original keys I still have along with pictures and video's I have.

I'll keep everyone posted if I have luck. Thanks!
