A good Ukrainian friend has a 1986 Kallista which he had registered and been driving freely in Crimea until he just went to reregister it under what is now Russian rule. The attached plate contains the cars VIN number but the "authorities" are giving him grief (for obvious reasons he being Ukrainian but now under Russian control) and are not accepting this is adequare VIN identification and are demanding he show it to them on a location on the car (windscreen/door recess etc) and despite searching the car forensically he has been unable to locate a VIN number in any of the "normal" locations. So can anyone help with a location or is the metal plate the only source of the VIN? the car (windscreen/door recess etc) and despite searching the car forensically he has been unable to locate a VIN number in any of the "normal" locations.

I have a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/BigCar2) talking about car histories, and I'd like to cover Panther. Would it be OK to use some of the images from this site (with credit of course)? Thanks in advance.
Great website and some amazing knowledge written. Very enjoyable read and some stunning pictures 🙂
Good afternoon, My name is Marc Veenhuis and I’m a 57 years old car enthusiast, but I had a series of Cerebral Vascular Accidents so I only drive short distances. To stay involved in the car hobby, I collect car (bonnet) badges and nameplates. Do you have an old or maybe slightly damaged Panther badge for my collection please ? Thank you.
