I know Farmers Insurance does some sort of search on cars.  When I 
insured my 89 200TQ I gave the the incorrect VIN Number.  They called
and said it was not correct so I gave them the correct one which went
on Farmers computer system.  I live in Washington but the car was in the 
name of someone other than myself who lives in CA.
