    Keys did MVD assign you a new 17-character VIN and give you a new VIN plate or just use the HH3-######## as the VIN?

    They affixed a new plate to the door jamb. It consists of the letters "AZ", a dash and six numerals. That's all...and it was accepted by the MVD and my insurance carrier.

    The assigning of a vin # and ID plate is the same procedure as they did for me about 15 years ago when I lived in Az and built and licensed a boat trailer that I had created.

    I'm in Florida and just registered my '90 Carry without any problems from the state. The only problem I had was from the insurance company. They said Carfax didn't recognize the vin because it only had 11 digits instead of the normal 17 that normal cars have. But since it was ok with the state, they issued me a policy. Just started driving it today. It gets a lot of looks.

    Boy did this thread get hijacked. It started out as " Better More Active Mini Truck Site " and ended up about registering minis.
    I think the fact is, is that this is the best and maybe only site ( in English ) devoted to Japanese mini trucks. The reason this site is not as active is a lot of people are now using Facebook to talk about and show off there trucks.
    IMHO Facebook doesn't come close to this site when it comes to real information and help from other mini truck owners. It has been a huge help for me.
    I guess I'm just " Old School "

    I don't mind the threads changing topic some, especially as it shows that this site is still active. And you are right that this is a better, more focused source for Mini truck info and help then facebook is.

    I sure agree with Ran 440 about this being a great source of info. I too am old school and never have used facebook for anything but my wife does to keep up with grandkids. I hate to see some of the old guys like spaner and Fupabox no longer active as they were the best at getting into details. I just hope some of the new blood picks up where they left off.

    Being an old buzzard myself I'm glad to have this as a source of information. I've only had my '90 Carry for about 6 months now. Glad to have you folks around.

    I guess I am on the younger side of things. 30. Lol. I as well find the site extremely helpful. The Facebook site is more active but doesn't really retain any information. It's good for a quick show but you will never find info about issues you maybe having. This site has a really bad search feature so I use google to search only this site. If you don't know how just enter "your search" then site:minitrucktalk.com. And you will only get results from here and can also dig up seeming lost info. Hope that helps someone.

    Pictures I think are gone if they aren't there. I believe they were held in a third party image site. So after time that site deleted them. That's my guess

    It depends on whether they linked them, or uploaded them. If they were uploaded they tend to still be here. If the poster linked them to an outside photo-server then they disappear over time.
