Hi,
Just to let you know, the photos aren't showing. Not on my PC, anyway.
You need to upload them to a hosting site first, such as Photobucket or Flickr. There's a tutorial here:

All the best,

Hi all, I've just purchased this car!

While the spec all seems to check out I don't have much in the way of paperwork for all the work done.

Just wondering if any former owners of the car are on here and could tell me a bit more about its history?

Nice looking car Jon.

With that registration it would have started life in north or east London.

You can get a V888 form from the DVLA which (for a fee as usual!) you can fill in and they will send you a list of all the previous owners. You could then write to each of them and see what transpires. Going to do that with my 3.0S as I don't have much history.

Nice idea, mine's had five previous owners before me! I want to know who did all that bodge welding I had to sort out!
My car isn't stupid.... it's MENTAL.

I have written to, or called previous owners if their details are on invoices etc, some are happy to speak others wont reply at all.

Always worth a try though, as many are happy the car is still on the road :D
