Taken from recent Passion Ford thread. Read it and weep.

believe it or not around xmas time 2002 it was brought to my attention from someone that there was an esc cossie which and appeared to of been parked up for a very long time,so i went hunted it down and had alook for myself.

well there she was mallard green all parked up didnt think alot of it till had alook at the tax disc and noticed it had run out in may 2000

wtf i was thinking it just didnt make sense so i got into action and thought i was gonna do something about this called dvla asked them there advice about what i thought was an abandoned car and how do i claim it well they told me what i needed to hear did the relevent things and sent of a V62 (i think that was it) dvla said to me that once thay had recieved my form requesting the log book they would try and get hold of the current owner if he doesnt respond to there request they will issue the log book in my name

the wait began.........................then early jan 03 guess what arrives thro the post!!!!

the log book for the cossie in ma name well i couldnt believe it shocked.gif

so went to see if car was still there and yep there it was,now the problem was how was i gonna move the thing with out keys etc becausce the car was parked with the wheels pointing to the kerb and had a massive s/wheel look on it bigcry.gif

I came back to the car next day after sorting out a way of lifting it etc and guess ****ing what..................ITS GONE icon_sad.gif the ******* cossis gone

well cut a story short etc i just got on with things and thought well was worth a try then about 3 weeks later i get the police at my door one night asking if i own a esc cosworth reg number etc etc.well from what they told me it appeared the car had been involved in an accident and been left in some blokes front garden.well cut a story short managed to convince the police i had nothing to do with it and tracked the car down to a pound and since im the registered keeper now i was gonna see what sort of damage was done and if anything could be salvaged.

i walked into the pound and right at the back was the cossie and as you can see from the pics below it wasnt as bad as i was 1st fearing.To get it home all i had to do was pay the impound fee which came to just under 400 and then pay a mate 50 to get if on a flatbed

well its some story really and even i and ppl i know cant believe it all but had i moved the car the day i got the log book how the story would of been different and wouldnt of cost me 450







It just doesn't happen does it?? -cries-

On the vehicle log book it clearly states :

The Registered Keeper is NOT necessarily the legal owner.

Just coz the log book is in your name it dosnt mean the car is yours..... think

Sorry to piss on your bonfire like smack

Either way its better than not to own it! If he wanted it for himself, contact the previous owner (would say on the logbook) and possibly agree a price OR strip the car and sell the parts, The parts will rake in alot of cash and scrap the shell.

Lucky *******, how is he gonna open the doors? get the engine to start? all the other good stuff?
Shouldnt cost much more than a grand to have that fully fixed if its just new bumper,wing repair,quad repair,new indicators, new cooler and rad maybe?

If he's got any brains he'll put his hand through the broken/open window and open it with the interior door opener. To start it, i'd imagion he'll rip out any alarm etc and replace all the lock barrels and key set.
