Vin check + Worcester MA test drive help?

Seriously considering a truck that has come up for sale in Worcester MA and would like to get more info on it. The seller is sending detailed pics this weekend but I wanted to get a VIN run if someone could do that for me and see if anyone is in the area that knows a thing or two and could check out the truck if I like what I see in the pics.

VIN is SALDV3244VA122584

Thanks guys

Googled the VIN and it brought me to this post.

I didn't think it quite looked Monza in the Craiglist pics. Hmmmm

I live in the area and could help if needed. I'm traveling for work right now, but will be home for the long weekend. PM me and let me know what you need.

Has he seen it yet? What did he think? Looks quite a bit different in the craigslist pics now than it did in the old forum pics.

California car? This link shows it was in Vail, CO. Dont know if they use salt in CO or not. But if they got a place in Vail, might have a place in Cali too.

Kind of a shame someone converted one of the few 97 Portofino SWs into an ST...Saw this truck on CL and it looks pretty clean. Just be aware that pics always lie so it's good you are looking for someone to get eyes on it.

There was a nice clean Monza on ebay I think. Pricey however. Or check out Shawn Palmer's Monza that he has for sale.

Been looking hard at Shawn's but he never emailed me back pics when I asked for them though. A little higher than I am really wanting to go but...

I thought seriously of buying this rig twice, once when it was for sale in CO, then I saw it again on eBay in CA. Looks like the current owner brought it almost back to stock.

I really like how it was set up with the rockware bumpers, custom back seating, wheels etc etc.

Still nice but not the same.
