    Write to him could be your best bet?

    I guess you'd have to be very lucky for him to be on here...

    Do what I did and write to him, I had a good chat with the previous owner and was a decent / genuine guy and didn't mind at all that I contacted him, in fact we were chatting for around an hour about the car and his new car which was another Veccy.
    Cheers Pete

    done it with a couple of vehicles, as above, write to him, send an SAE, and put a phone number and e mail address so he can choose the easiest option. one thing i have found though, is that people can wax lyrical a bit about their old car, for what reason i don't know. maybe it's to make the new owner feel good, maybe if they know it was knackered they don't want a come-back from the place he traded it in at, eg, new owner bangs fist on sales manager's desk with an e mail from first owner saying 'haaa! you bought that pile of crap! shame the gearbox is falling out and it's been on it's roof!!', garage is really unhappy with the first guy when he takes his new car back for any reason, etc.
    i once phoned the previous owner of a scirrocco i once had, he told me what a wonderful car it was etc etc, only when i did some more digging did i find the engine had been swapped just prior to trade in - why not say???
