    Default Car/truck make model database

    am hoping that I do not have to re-invent the wheel. Does anyone have a car/truck make & model database??

    Have new client that is going to set up auto loan business and need lookup for the vehicles.

    TIA

    Don

    There are several that do that by serial number.
    You give the vin and they break out the:
    year, make, model, engine, body, and a lot more.
    I created my own, but each dealer added to mine as it went.

    Vindecoder strikes my memory
    Here is one, but for a website plug in http://www.vindecoder.net/vin-decoder-web-plugin.html
    another may be better?: http://www.dataonesoftware.com/products
    Search google "vin decoder software"

    Are you doing web or desktop?

    Mine has been running for years and for me to hook up to an outside company way back was very, very expensive. I created my own based on the first 9 digits of the vin, so one a vehicle was entered, the rest same 8 would pick it up and fill the fields.
    If it were today, where it is less money, I would get the subscription.

    I do have a friend(used to be my desk partner in the car business) that owns a F&I company and has for over 30 years. He uses another company for the vin decoding. He also supplies auto auction and bank software for lending.
