In the 1950's, some states of the United States (and some areas of other countries) were using the car's engine numbers as the registration numbers on the titles. The reason why this method of registration became obsolete is self-evident: Engine changes and replacements. Engines might be replaced under warranty with a blank serial number on the block!
