Maybe I am missing something but why do you need a VIN before going to look at a vehicle?

I know I would not provide you my VIN, hell I wouldnt even show you the title until you show me the scratch.

I hear you. The owner seems a bit sketchy and I've requested info like mileage; history; title; etc and he never addresses what I believe are reasonable questions from a serious buyer.

Also he responds only to email and always a few days down road . I've forwarded the emails to a few guys and it is always the same response: "seems sketchy; pass on it" etc.

Won't give a contact number and I told him; I get his side and that I would like to meet and check out the van on his schedule; his time and choice of location. The response three days after the request:

"you can see it downtown with everyone else this Saturday"

Getting a bad vibe; and just want to make sure van is legit. After talking with someone back and forth for awhile ; almost always contact info exchanged and all is good.

Dude...
Just forget about it.
You shouldn't have to work to buy anything.
This one thing:
"you can see it downtown with everyone else this Saturday"
is enough to turn me off.
I'm not going to an "auction" for an individual's vehicle.
I'm surely not willing to wait 3 days for answers to my questions (Hell, I've probably already bought something else by then anyway. LOL).

I buy a lot of cars compared to normal people (3 in the past 6 months, and 61 overall).
I don't play any games or go out of my comfort zone.
As soon as there's any reason to stop pursuing a vehicle, I do.
There's another one tomorrow anyhow, and it's probably nicer.

If you play the seller's games you just encourage that type of behavior.
There are enough nuts out there without us coddling them. LOL

I consider myself a cordial buyer...
I'm not very aggressive with haggling, I show up when I say I will, and I'm ready to buy on the spot.
Believe it or not, those things give me a good advantage and I get some really good deals.

Just forget that dude.
If he wanted to sell the van, he could have had it gone already.
He's just trying to make a big deal out of it.

Thank you Rusty for the support. I haven't been a "True" Vanner since 1982 when my 1974 was hit head on the freeway back in 1982. Drunk Driver.

I hear you; I've been looking so long for the last year and a half and they are almost always a Cali Reg Nightmare or the 1st buyer goes out and beats me too it.

I actually had a buddy turn me on to a sweet 1976 and I'm in process of getting the engine number; already have vin= owner is super cool; and once I have engine number I can get
estimate on emissions control so I can smog legal.

Bro it's super nice with 350/350 combo; G10 Shorty and the dash is clean and untouched and cargo area a clean slate with a solid roof: no sunroof and no rear cargo area roof vent with pop out windows I wanted.; AND Factory Air !

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and if it looks cool on smog gear; I'm ready to hope a plane and drive back.
I'm so stoked right now.

I always appreciate your posts; you make me laugh Bro, Your Funny; not like a clown though ( I don't want you to go Crazy on me like Joe Pesci in "Good Fellas" . One of many Stellar moments in that flick. One of my all time favorites.

Thanks Bro.

Cool.
Good luck on the '76.

You're not going to believe this, but...
When I read that you said I was funny, I literally thought, "Funny how? Like I'm a clown?"
LOL
