To be honest if you show how desperate and willing you are to buy the car, than that only raises the value that much more. Am I wrong?

had it for two years, eventually the EXTREMELY loud exhaust (ask sc2150 on the forum. it was loud.) started giving me toothaches and headaches from hearing it so often. For the first year and a half I loved the exhaust, but I got used to it since the car was my daily driver, so all i started seeing in it were negatives. Starting it up on my way to work at 6 am is the equivalent to someone waking you up by screaming in your ear.

The car was supercharged and made about 600 horsepower which was awesome till stuff started breaking and I ran into a million problems. Eventually I was repairing something every 2 or 3 weeks. It took 2 months just to solve one problem that turned out to be a MAP sensor, but I almost replace the entire ECU because NO ONE could pin it down, so I just guessed.

Another big thing was how paranoid I was. When you spend 2 years completely customizing the car, and I mean COMPLETELY. Like, I repainted the entire thing, new spoiler, new front bumper, new hood, custom wheels that took 6 months to make, and all this stuff. I got really paranoid of leaving it anywhere or even driving it. I knew if anyone hit me or i got in a wreck, i'd be paying TONS to fix it and get it exactly how it was.

I couldn't drive it in the rain because of traction, and I could have fixed this by buying suspension components, but I was already spending so much to maintain it (dont forget the 8mpg cause of how rich i had it running), I didnt want to put even more into it.

If this was a weekend car or a track car, I would still have it, but I just couldn't live with it anymore. I had to get something else. I wound up with a 2008 BMW M3 and a 2012 Maserati Granturismo. If I'm completely honest, I wish I kept it. I miss the car. I shouldn't have sold something I put so much work into. Should've bought the M3 and kept the Camaro as a weekender

I'm not desperate, I'm just trying to locate it.

Doubt it. If you have proof, that'd be something to see.

As far as I know Carfax only gives the number of owners and location it was registered. No actual ownership info is given out.

I ran a carfax and you are right. No personal info is given. It's a privacy act. you used to be able to call a DMV and they would tell you who the past owner was, but not anymore. Even if I buy a copy of the title it will have the owners name marked out.

The way you describe it sounds like you hated the car when you had it. Headaches, toothaches, 8mpg, broken components, etc. I'd say good riddance. But, I understand having an affection for certain things. Good luck in your search! Try searching e-bay and autotrader, maybe you'll get lucky and it is for sale.

When I bought my Saturn Vue the previous owner had left a copy of the registration in the glovebox, I looked their name and address up on the internet and found their phone number, I called them and got the background on the car and their reason for selling it. The dealer won't even give out the sellers name and phone number any more.

I'll be there. In the rare case that I see it, I'll be one of the many people to let you know. But I've never seen it there before.

This was already suggested, and OP did it. Carfax will give you a vehicle report, but it won't give you any information about the previous owner(s).

I may head on over to wiregrass. I just finished the Sarasota Exotic Fest rally. Was a blast. I dont want to derail this topic though. I'm really wanting to hear from QUICKSS. I have a feeling hes just messing with me saying he saw it totaled, but hopefully I'll hear back.

Do you plan on taking your Maserati? That'll get a ton of attention. You could also ask people if they've seen the car there.

He's probably just messing with you.. Hopefully.

What is the exact date this year? April 27th? If I'm not busy I'll be showing up in the Maserati. If you see a white Granturismo convertible come say hi.

Doubtful. I dont even know how Instragram works. I feel like im 80 years old. I never made one and I dont really see the point, so probably a low chance to find it on there.

April 27th. I'll keep my eye out for you and try to get some pictures of your Maserati since I'm mostly there for photography.

Too bad you don't have a close friend or a relative who's a LEO.
It would take them 2 minutes to get the info you want.
Like they say "It's who you know".

Offer the dealer a "finders fee"... or offer to run it through his books... he will make the call.
