    Hello everyone
    Does anyone here know how to locate a car that one used to own ? When I went to the DVLA website it gave some details for my first ever Benz: a 1984
    500SEC reg A931KFP.

    I'm amazed that anything came up as it returned a blank search for another old Benz of mine that was in far better condition when it left me ( a 1988 560SEL reg F48NVU ). Places like Tesco insurance also bring up the details of my old SEC. Does this mean that it could realistically still be on the road ? All comments gratefully received :thumb:

    The key thing is that the date of liability is stated as "01 06 2012" and "SORN not due". In other words, it's SORN'd until the end of May next year, which means it's being stored off the road.

    The DVLA will only release car ownership details (past and present) to the current registered keeper and other authorised bodies, so they went tell you who owns it now. But at least you know it's survived. :)

    Do you have to pay her extra to do the cleaning with nothing on?

    I heard her on the phone wishing you happy birthday as she ransacked your flat looking for valuables.
