I filled in part A as Iam the owner

It's only a £5 and really worth doing as it completes my history folder on the car .


Thanks for that link Jason. Did you print the form out and post it to dvla with a cheque for a fiver ?

Hi,
So, exactly what information is provided? Presumably it's the names and addresses of all the previous owners and the date they acquired the car?

First is the paper work from the dealers to tax and give the address of the new keeper then it's all the paper work for when the car was sold and new keepers forms sent out . O C D warning ..................
I have bought myself a large leather folder with them A4 plastic sleeves and been putting all the paper work in order of date along with the service records and even down to like wipers and a air freshener from fords recipient. I have all the tax disks and I have photo copied the first one and put that in the car . Also have the mot from its first one . I might Wright out to all the old owners and ask if they have any pictures .

Hi,
Thanks for that. It sounds as though it's definitely worth having.

Hi all. As I said before I have been amazed at the number of viewings of this post.
This is my first attempt at posting some picks quality not very good as they are scans of photos taken in late February 1987. Perhaps these may jog someone's memory.

Its a nice looking Cabaret.

Whether the colour divide is half way up the body like the Cabaret or below the bumper line I think Capris do look very good in 2 tone paint

Thanks for that. Not sure what she looks like now, if she still exists, as the pictures were taken when she was only 4 years old. I used to think that the 2 tone paint looked better on the 2.8s with only the part below the side moulding in silver, but now I think the Cabarets & Calypso look good too.
