    Ok, I was digging through stacks and stacks of old paperwork of my fathers and came across a copy of the title to a 71 Renegade II that my folks owned back in the day. Being that I already own a 71 BBO R1 and and a 71 Baja Yellow RII, other than owning a Mint green RII or a odd color RI what be cooler then finding the one my folks used to own...

    So where is it at today? Let the search begin!

    From what I can remember, It was sold in 1986 or 87 in the Denver area. It had already lost the factory upholstery on the front and rear seats and were recovered in a tuck and roll style covers, It was fitted with a kayline style gas can and spare carrier, and had a set of Keasly Hayes R1 wheels on it. The vin was 8305 017 372771
    Anybody have any suggestions on how to search DMV to the present owner?

    well a carfax would show if it exists. Another way I know of doing it for free is to make an ebay ad for it and it does the same thing shows all the times and places it was previously registered. It was funny my brothers 86 camaro had like 20 owners. It doesnt show the owners names but itll get you close if the number is still in the system. then you can pull the ad when your done ofcourse

    Not sure if either system will allow for the 13 digit vin... I will have to try it and see.

    Titlecheck.us checks the NMVTIS database. The VIN in question does not show that vin in their system. It accepts short VINs. The great thing about this site is that it checks for a record before you pay.

    Sorry, no matching record was found for VIN 8305017372771
    While there is not a record for this VIN is not in the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), it does not mean that this vehicle is free of damage, title brands or other problems.

    The absence of a report is not an assurance of a vehicle's condition. It's always a good idea to take a vehicle to an independent mechanic to have it checked for evidence of accidents or damage.

    Running my titled Vin through any of the listed sites returns a no vin found. Not sure what is going on? OP, did you have any luck? I guess what I find to be particularly odd is that mine is TITLED but returns nothing. Shouldn't it at the very least return my title???

    No, I have not found it as of yet, this may be a long process if I ever do find it.
