We have members in Florida that WILL be a better source of info, but
it seems to me that you personally may be able to find out if the car
is still actively registered at the DMV. My guess is that unless you
have legal need to know, that'll be about as far as you will get.
I actually bought my truck in Florida and had contact with the
DMV because I dragged the seller there to quiz them on title
transfer. It definitely wasn't like the Calif DMV but they weren't
non-professional by any means. In CA I doubt you'd get the time
of day regarding ANY info about someone else's VIN.
As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
