re: cowl tag

My first thought would be not legal but it does not have the cars VIN and there is a company that will repo the one off your car if yours was damaged or removed for some reason. I know this topic has been talked about on this site in the past.

It is probably legal to do this, depending on where you live to some extent.

A person can sell cowl tags on the net ... and one can probably even place a different cowl tag on a car legally.

A person can sell VIN plates on the net ... but it becomes illegal when one tries to put it on a car.

Just my opinions.

I don't know why anyone would want it.
I don't either, unless you were starting a cowl tag collection:). To be any use on a car, it would have to be an Ermine White 62 Chevy II convert with red and ivory interior and missing the cowl tag:rolleyes:. Because they don't reproduce these interiors, you see very few 62 verts around with original trim. Most restore using 63 trim packages. Pretty difficult to match up this tag with a car.

It's illegal to sell VIN tags in every state as far as I know.

I'm not sure about cowl tags but I don't see why it would be illegal to sell them. You can't really do anything with them that you couldn't do by legally having a reproduction made. You can't have a reproduction VIN tag made under any circumstance though (legally that is).
