Demand for an iPhone VIN Decoder for Classic Cars

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

For those that don’t know I’m releasing a VIN decoder for modern vehicles that will be available initially for the iPhone and iPod Touch.  The app will allow you to enter a VIN and decode the informationed contained in it to reveal facts about the vehicle.  It’s also tied into the CARFAX vehicle history service to provide detailed reports on any vehicle made after 1981.

My question to the general audience is if there is any interest in a similar app for classic and collector vehicles.  It would be a database of information specifically on the classic car market, designed for collectors, auction-goers, and general car show fans.  Let me know what you think…

VIN Hunter ( is launching a new iPhone VIN decoder and vehicle history app.  This thing looks awesome, I’ve been playing with it for several days.  Easy to use and able to lookup over 150,000 vehicle models!  Check CARFAX reports and stolen vehicle lists.  A great tool for anyone shopping for a car or truck.

Ask ’em to make a classic car version! 🙂
