I'm going to Zolfo tomorrow. If I cant find it, that's a good idea too.

Are you seriously going to try and trade your M3+cash for your camaro back "according to your "LUX4PLAY"? They are getting a heck of a deal if you find it and they actually take the trade.I guess you will be too, when you actually find it. Good luck man.

Honestly it depends what shape its in. I'd prefer to pay cash and be done or just trade the M3 even. I dont know yet. I'll find it and see how it goes. The new owners are financing it so that probably wont even be an option.

in all honesty, I really don't think you would have any luck if you did find it, I know I bought my camaro with 3,000 miles on it and if the original owner contacted me trying to buy it, I would just laugh and say HELL NO!! The person driving your car now may be more attached to it then you were or are or whatever.

hey Moose, glad to see you back.
As for your car, I hope you get it dude but have a feeling your going to have to pay big for it.
You can always tell him about the upcoming 2014 Camaro and hopefully sway him
How much you willing to give him or her?

I wish I could say, I just don't know what condition it's in. I'd pay well though.. For all I know they put it on chrome wheels and ran it into a guard rail. I'm honestly sort of nervous to find it

Hey man, honestly just have a LEO run the plate but for the love of GOD DO NOT POST THAT here. Just say you saw it

But dude.....use your friends lol I sure as hell would have ran it myself and found it.

And hey man, whatever happened to the car, you could always fix it, phase two of the build dude. I know what you mean, I will never let go of my baby

Anyways find out the address, send them a letter or better yet just run into them when the car is out for a drive. Have all your pics and stuff ready, explain to them your situation and see if they are ok with selling it.

If they dont love it that much, im pretty sure they would settle for a brand new 2014 or a 1LE

If you had an on-star subscription you may be able to call them and ask them to help you back track the car. Also, I would ask the dealer to contact the new owners for you (provide them your phone number) and see if they would call you back.

I'm heading to St.Petersburg tomorrow for the Grand Prix. Zolfo isn't too far away. If I see your car around I'll try and get you some contact info.

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
Let me say i sold my car for that reason alone. although i didn't go as far you. My camaro gave me more stress than joy. I had to get another car for a DD which i hated because my camaro didn't see the road much.

I really needed a DD that i could enjoy everyday. Kind of like you i put my camaro money towards a 2013 M3 which i feel was the best thing i have ever done(car wise). The worry free performance

I hope you find your camaro though! I know i have zero regrets selling mine

would maybe a carfax give you what you are looking for?
If nothing else it would show you the condition of the vehicle and let you know if it's even worth chasing down in the first place.

[QUOTE=Wizard1183;6309744]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.[/QUOTE]

It's a new day. I'll be heading to zolfo today at 2pm and calling the dealership who sold my car at 10 am. I'll keep everyone updated. The plan is to tell the dealer to give the new owner my phone ##. Something tells me no one in the dealership will feel like actually doing that, so I'll be going to zolfo with printed out pictures of the car and asking gas station employees and such. Maybe I'll go door-to-door if I get desperate. I'll keep this updated
