Spoke to original owner

This morning I decicded to type the name of the original owner that appear in the warranty booklet on 411 and came out with the same name and very similar address. I gave it a try and it was indeed the original owner. When I told him the reason foy my call he laughted and said
'' I was young at that time, I'm now driving a minivan LOL''
He told me he owned it for about a year and traded it on another car.
It was fun talking to him and to learn some little facts.
I'm glad I tried.

Claude- Tried that on my 575M, but it did not work. Good show. Did you ask him if he kept any goodies like the Monroney?

He had nothing about the car except some memories. But it was nice talking to the original owner.

Reinforces the fact

We are not "owners" but custodians......

To continu my search of history on the car I contacted the second owner who had the car for almost 20 years. He bought it almost new with around 4000km and sold it in 2012 to the man from who I bought. The only part of the car that is missing is the original exhaust that has been replaced by him for a Borla but he said he could possibly get the original one back for me. I hope he will.
