does anyone know how to trace a reg to an address? only I know of a couple of 'abandoned' cars I'm interested in but can't seem to find out who owns them? when a mate of mine worked for a windscreen firm he could go into a program and find the address of any reg?
1970 Beetle 1600
1973 Rover P6 2000SC
1993 Audi 80 Avant 1.9TDI
1996 Transit SWB pop top camper, 2L Twink
you can buy the logbook from dvla for abandonded, fill in that you never got the v5 off the previous keeper/lost etc. i have done it over 10 times, and got the v5 for the car, they were all cars in spain that were abandonded at the airport by brits who couldn't afford to live in spain anymore.
that is how i got my beloved lhd vw golf gl on a j registration.
Use the data from these to check more details on the DVLA site or the MOT history site.
Most of you probably got to grips with all this ages ago but maybe it will be of some use. If the vehicle you are searching for doesn't appear on the top three then it may be worthwhile trying a simple google search for the registration number.

Theres also this one (amongst others i'm sure) that gives details of personal plate transfers over the years www.cardatachecks.co.uk/
Just be aware some of the free checkers are using old data, I (finally) got a fuel type changed and got a new log book a month ago, now showing correctly on the DVLA site but its still showing wrong on some others.
