I dont have a Carfax account, but I just typed it into their free search engine which only basically tells you whether or not hey have any info on that car. It said that the VIN is invalid. I noticed there is a space in the middle. I tried it with and without the space. VINs shouldnt have a space, but I tried it anyway. Without the space its one character too short to be a valid VIN. According to CarFax, a VIN must be 17 characters. Did you type it wrong? If not, then he gave you the wrong/invalid VIN.

Did the original owner buy this car in North America? That is not a valid NA VIN. I'm not sure what sort of VINs the export cars get though.

All modern (4th gen) F-bodies will have VINs starting as 2G1F (chevy) or 2G2F (pontiac).

It's crazy it's in Henderson NV. Next weekend I'm going to be picking my car up from there too! Small world.

What starts with 2g1f? the vin you have in your first post is to a 2003 saturn vue with no accidents or insurance claims to date. If you want the saturn it sounds o.k., but it's no 98Z. Sorry man!

I wasn't sure if you were saying that the last vin was valid if I were to insert the first 4 prefixes. With the "new" vin the car checks out o.k.
98 Z, 3 registered owners. No accidents or incidents. Last registered milage was 93K in 6/2004 when it passed emissions testing.
Hope this helps!
