Check My Ride is a new social networking site that lets owners track down and connect with the new owners of their old cars. The website lets you track down your old ride by searching DMV records by vehicle identification number.

Selling a car is often an emotional experience: Either you really hate the heap that you're selling or you can't bear to see it go. For the latter scenario, Check My Ride offers a rewarding experience. You can sign up for the site and register your vehicle's VIN to connect with old owners. Another great, albeit unintended, use for Check My Ride is to aid owners looking for stolen cars. Connecting with old car owners, busting car thieves -- what's not to love?
