The National Insurance Crime Bureau says that Miata isn't stolen or salvaged.

Couldn't find any free car history report site though.

Yes, it's quite easy. They simply test and inspect it to the specifications for a fed car. I've owned three cars here, all from out of state. There's no difference in the process.

So, with a '99 for instance, you'd only be required to have one cat, and they'd inspect to make sure that it's there. Etc.

That's a cool site. I could just picture the FBI showing up at your door a few minutes after you put in a stollen VIN though, lol.

A certain company with a similar-sounding name tends to use Google to search for places (eg: forums) where unauthorized uses of their service are offered, and this causes headaches for the administrators of same.

Perhaps this thread should be deleted to protect the guilty, or better yet moved to "1337 speak".

Actually the seller bought the report and gave it to me. So nothing illegal was done.
