That's part of what I do, I found all the frame VINS at the scene before they were removed. It's a pain but we have to match parts with frames it can take forever.

I was thinking tow truck driver until you mentioned finding the frame vins, don't think that's part of a tow truck drivers job description.

Well that is where it all began, started working for AAA in 1977, did that on and off for a few years, then worked for D.O.D. as a classified courier til the fall of The Soviet Union, started working with LAPD garage for 22 years as a lien and VIN specialist supervisor, retired, did some restaurant  management, fleet management for Hertz Advantage, and the was requested to come back to LA where I just sit here and manage the night shift. Crap I'm old!
