  Heh.  My first car, which wasn't really mine, but given to me by my
parents, a 72 Caprice, was bought from me for the sole purpose of driving it
in a crash up derby.  I'm pretty sure I know what happened to it.  It
doesn't bring back fond memories either. ;)

  I'm pretty sure I know where my Saturn has been, but I would be interested
in finding out who all had my '66 Mustang, I know of at least 3 other owners
before me, one of which did the restoration work on it about 10 years ago.
If you find a way to do a title search on such an old car, let me know.
