Default 1970 HAMTRAMCK REGISTRY LEGIT/BOGUS?

Found this web-site, sounds good, almost to good. I admire the motivation, research, and work contained within. But I am somewhat skeptical. My friend had a very harsh realization on VIN and FENDER tag FRAUD. So, anything dealing with specific vehicle information I am very leary of. I want to beleive in the site because I feel that we as collectors and mopar entusiast as a whole need some of this info. That was lost by Chrysler, but just skeptical of the true intentions here. Anyone else have that to good to be true feeling? HERE IS THE LINK 1970 Hamtramck Registry

This is a legit web site, run by a long-time enthusiast Barry Washington. He also has a registry for T/A and AAR cars. I sent him the VINs of my two Challengers, plus copies of their broadcast sheets and tags via snail mail, once I knew who I was dealing with. He sent me information back on both of my cars regarding their history and some of it was a result of his efforts regarding the registry he built. I was a little hesitant to send him the info too, but he is legit.

He only collects 1970 Hamtramck and LA car production info. Maybe he can tell you something about your car? There is no charge for the info he sends you, unless it's for mailing hard copies. Now Galen won't say that his services are free, will he?

Yes, there are and always will be crooks out there and unfortunately your buddy got taken. I read an article in Mopar Enthusiast mag's next to last issue about VIN theft and it made me wonder if I shouldn't hide the sequential number of my car's VIN whenn I'm at a show to prevent fraud. Guess a couple of pieces of duct tape could go a long way to protect you.

LOL

Barry's website is absolutely legit!!!

Barry is a member of many Mopar forums using the screen name "AlaskanTA". I have known Barry for many years and trust him with my Mopars information (VINs, Broadcast Sheets, Etc) without hesitation.
