How to look up VIN from CA License plate
Maybe you know the CA license plate, but you want the VIN. Calif DMV leaks this info if you pretend you want to calculate the taxes on a purchase. You know, Calif get all excited when they think are about to collect cash and they just blurt stuff out. Like the correct VIN.
Fill in the license plate and all fields, but put 99999 for the VIN. Most of the fields don’t matter to us, but you’ll need to enter reasonable data for the form to work. Click the button to “Calculate Fees” and the next page result will include the VIN. Now you can use that VIN to look up the rest of the details about the car. :-)

Really useful when you are considering buying a Jeep and you want to know all the details but the seller doesn’t know or doesn’t say in their advertisement.
Just add the VIN number to the end of this URL:
Then copy/paste into the address bar of your web browser & press return. It may appear as if nothing happened, but check your downloads folder – you ought to have a new PDF there that is all about that Jeep!

Java scripts need to be in the <head> and for my purpose today, it was cleanest & easiest to put into a separate html file outside of WordPress. The button that calls the java script does not go into the <head> of course.
