Question Howdy Y'all from Southern Miss!

Greetings Smokstakkers! Brand new "Babyboomer" member here from Hattiesburg The Hub in South Mississippi...I am particularly interested in the History of the internal combustion engine from 1860 to 1900...Also, I want to discuss & learn more asap re the "hybrid" car that I am most interested in for the Future: Electric-Steam cars. (Which I understand there is a practical prototype in Chicago, but which is being suppressed. Amyway I like the idea of riding around all week on free water from any hydrant and a gallon of Coleman fuel! Lol)...Finally, 2 Questions: (1) I owned a milestone 1953 Buick Skylark "Golden Anniversary" Convertible for 10 years from 1973 to 1983 (from the age of 16 to 26), which I sold to a gentleman from Long Island, New York. I've lost all detailed info re the transaction, so how would I go about possibly learning the current whereabouts of that specific car now??...(2) From about 1975 to about 2000 I owned an early American power lawnmower of the brand/make "Hurricane". (It was a gift out of New Orleans.) I always thought it was around a 1948 model (I think it had a 14 inch blade), but is it possible to confirm the exact year of production? THANKS Friends & Godspeed.

On your Skylark, I assume you don't have the VIN? If you can somehow get it (see if you can find any old insurance info, go to the ins agency to see if they have any old records, etc) then it wont be hard to track down it's last location. Some states allow you to access records online. Otherwise you could have a police agency run the VIN for you. It will tell you who is the current or last owner of the vehicle (if it's been junked).
