You want money for what?

What are some free/public source of VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) based info? Carfax charges $20 to rehash (what I think is) public information. I'd like to gather sources so I can do it / offer it for free. Does anyone know of flood / salvage / etc sites I could grab the data from?

Every state offers VIN verification service, so if you're wanting a place to gather lots of sources you can visit's VIN verification search page.

Response by poster: The only thing I've seen at that will actually give data about a VIN is a... "sponsored link" to Carfax ;)

Well, dealerships often offer free carfax access for their inventory, but I don't know if that's too helpful in your case.

Carfax offers an unlimited searches for a month option which is way more economical if you are in the market and need to check a lot of vehicles.
