There was no license plates. That is why there is no registration. I'll see if I can find a good picture.

Default VIN number

Not sure this fits here. Hope so. A friend just sent an email about how thieves will copy down a VIN number off a vehicle then take that number to the dealer and have a new key cut for the vehicle. Then, the thief calmly returns to the vehicle, unlocks it, and drives away. The fix for this, so the email says, is to cover our VIN numbers with electrical or duct tape or some other device. The email cautions that it is illegal to remove the VIN tag.

Does this apply to newer vehicles? If so, what would be a cutoff date? What year of manufacture would the dealer say they can't cut a key from that VIN number? Is this a valid concern, or a tall tale?

Thieves suck. My car hauler, with a 1979 FJ55 strapped to it, was stolen from the parking lot at our shop a couple of years ago.
