Default Happy Fathers Day! Have you seen my dadís car?

Happy Fatherís Day to all you dads out there! The 996 cab in the pic was my dadís favorite car. He passed away nearly 11 years ago. The car was done up with side skirts, lip & techart wheels I believe. I own the 993 below. I always thought it would be amazing if I could locate his car. I know itís far fetched but if anyone has seen such a car please let me know. Was a metallic black with tan interior and manual transmission. We lived in Beverly Hills too.

Do you have a vin? Try calling the insurance company or even the dmv if you donít. Then put the vin in a carfax report.

VIN would be the way to track it down. If you have no record of the VIN, track the VIN down using the license plate. Should be a VIN associated with the license plate and registration. Maybe even an old insurance document, or insurance company, might still have a record of the VIN. Car could be anywhere, but at least it would help if we knew what State/City the car was in 11 years ago.

Thanks guys. Let me add I DONT have the vin otherwise I could have. Iíve had the same insurance guy since I was a kid (Iím 33) and he insurer my folks too but he was with another company and doesnít think he can access it to get it. I think I remember the plate but not sure and itís vermont plates.

edit: and yes below a Ď99 was in Beverly Hills CA.

It's a '99, if that helps narrow it down a bit.

If it was Vermont plates, and you know the plate number, contact the DMV. We are a tiny state and you may speak with someone at the department who is willing to help. There have probably been fewer 996 cabs registered in Vermont ever than in a block of beverly hills on any given year.
