Why not buy a new 1LE and build another car, using lessons you learned building the old one?

biggerisbetter 03-20-2013 10:41 AM

good luck man and that is one fine car

InvaderMoose 03-20-2013 10:51 AM

Because I don't want to build another or replace it. I want the one I previously owned.

I can understand the dealership not wanting (or being allowed becasue of privacy laws) not to give you the new owner's contact information. I don't know why they wouldn't be able to contact the owner themselves and inform that person someone has expressed interst in buying the car (back) and to let the dealership know if there is any interest on their part. As far I know, since the owner has already doen business with the dealership, there is no violation of privacy laws (unless diffeent in Florida) for them to contact their past customer - the dealership I bought my Camaro from contacts me regularly. Who knows - the dealer might end up making another sale on a new vechicle for the current owner.

Even if you found it, how much are you willing to pay for that car? An owner just won't say, "oh you're previous owner? No problem I sell it to you what I paid or of value." If he loves it you're screwed unless money is no object and you're willing to spend around 45k to buy it back? Go buy another car dude. It's gone. You have it up. Fr what reason I don't know, but whatever the reason it doesn't justify you getting it back now does it? Unless you still have the papers saying you're the owner and its been stolen.

Call Papa John's Pizza, ask for the owner. He's got experience in this field. I believe he ponied up $250G to get his old 2nd gen back.............................................. ..................................I must confess, however... I'd pay a lot of shiny nickels to get my old Cutlass back...

..you sound offended. The car isn't gone, it's a few miles away in another city and I have the money to buy it back.

I get it, good luck in your quest Moose!

Neumatic 03-20-2013 11:16 AM

I remember reading about it when you sold it, good luck finding it!

OP doesn't have to "justify" anything. He wants to make an offer... the current owner can take it or leave it. No harm, no crime, no foul, no "need to justify." Hell, I'd be happy to entertain offers on any used car I ever owned... and if the price was good enough to make me happy, I'd go for it. If not, tough luck, pal. The OP is not planning to kill the current owner and steal the car, as far as I can tell... just wants to make a valid business proposal.

Mezzmo 03-20-2013 11:21 AM

Good luck bud. Hope you find it. If I could find my '72 Challenger I got rid of 25 years ago, I'd buy it back too. We all have cars we regret selling, you're just lucky to be close enough to possibly get it back. :thumb:

toesuf94 03-20-2013 11:23 AM

Good luck Bump.

SPCBA 03-20-2013 11:28 AM

ask the dealer to call them on your behalf. or to mail something for you to them with a letter containing your info and situation.

InvaderMoose 03-20-2013 11:29 AM

Thanks guys for all the "good lucks"!

I'll tell you all why I sold it in a few hours when I have a computer and I don't have to type from a phone..

Ill be surprised if the owner isn't a member here, I mean who buys a supercharged, custom painted Camaro and doesn't join a Camaro forum. If it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have even discovered half the mods I put on my car.

I'm heading to the dealer in person tomorrow. Over the phone it's easier to say "sorry we can't do that" than it is face to face. I'll talk to the guy who sold my car and see what I can do

Scalded Dog 03-20-2013 11:35 AM

I hope that you get it back... to me, this is what a "love story" is all about.

daveagogo1 03-20-2013 11:38 AM

You may get a better response in the Florida section. I did not notice it at the rally a few weeks ago. Wiregrass show is coming up Apr 27. Never know it might be out there.

2010 SSRS 03-20-2013 11:52 AM

Good luck, I hope you get your Camaro back, there has to be members on here in Florida that see the car on the streets, with the custom stripes your Camaro definitely would stand out.

Scalded Dog 03-20-2013 11:55 AM

Right now, as I sit at my desk, I have the cast metal scripted nameplates that read, "Cutlass Supreme," in front of me, off of the car that I loved back then. I haven't seen that car since 1990... I'm not a sentimental fool over anything else, except for that car............................................... ...................................... I would go to great lengths to have that one back, if I thought that there was any chance it had not eventually been wrecked, trashed, dumped, crushed, and probably recycled (perhaps even a few times, by now!) into other cars. I just hope it's a Camaro now... when it comes to cars, re-inCARnation is real!

slomaro3.4 03-20-2013 11:59 AM

Moose!! What up my L4P brother? I haven't seen it around me at though, but I'll always keep an eye out, keep us updated.

Del's12SS 03-20-2013 12:02 PM

Cool thread, I hope you find it.
:pop2:

I can tell you this, I did NOT see it this morning in Grand Rapids Michigan.

fbodyauto 03-20-2013 12:21 PM

Umm couldn't running a car fax on the cars vin help you? It should list the different owners? At least it used to.... If you don't have you vin pull up some old insurance info and you could find it.

Sir Nuke 03-20-2013 12:45 PM

InvaderMoose, I know the dealer can't tell you who they sold it to.....BUT go back and talk to them nice and approch it from the other side. Have them give YOUR information to the guy they sold it to, and have them call you.....maybe he will, maybe he won't, but its worth a shot!!
