Are you using the VIN plate under the windshield glass? Try an alternate VIN location site if you can find one, like the inside of the drivers front door, an under-hood sticker or stamp, any stickers or plates in the trunk....

vin numbers are not listed or kept track of until the late 90,s.have it checked at the DMV.
