    Vehicle : Vectra C SRi 1.8vvti

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 18.vvti

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 29,500

    How would I go about trying to find out if my Dad's old car which I passed my test in would still be around today? It is a Ford Cortina 2.0l Crusader.

    You've answered your own question then.

    It's either sat in a barn and been forgotten about since 1993 (unlikely)

    Or part of it's sat in your food cupboard keeping your Baked Beans in a nice cylindrical area.

    Not been taxed since 1993, i'd say it's been scrapped! Sorry.
