    Actually did this some days earlier – needed to find the window sticker to prove the paint color – hubby and I had an argument – I won. So I pulled out all the old registrations, oil change receipts, and proof of insurance forms for the 9 years since we bought it. Kind of beat ya to the punch on this one.
