You don't even need a title for an " antique" over 35 y/o. what's the issue?
Is that VIN appearing anywhere else on a national database? Was it a recorded OE issued VIN?
Was there a stolen 'vette and was this guy under surveillance?
And do we want Staties tied up and spending their time with such nonsense?
And who is the idiot who passed a law that you have to crush a confiscated vehicle?
At least auction it and add the $$ to the coffers ... dumb idiots

I I repeat anything answered in the article - sorry I didnt read the article

We have to solve traceability issues often on equipment …
Who removed it anyway …
That's already been established,

From the article itself: "Richard Martinez, the car's owner, bought the restored machine in 2017; however, an inspection by state police found the car's VIN plate had been tampered with. Indeed, it was removed during the restoration process.

A District Court Order is necessary for destruction. Law enforcement can seize for 72 hours. After which; a Court Order is necessary for further investigation or destruction. I was a VIN inspector in a past life.
