Track Down Your Old Car! Find Out If It's Still Around

ford capri in red

There are several ways that you can find out information about if your old vehicle is still around and where it is.

In this guide we'll cover them all, and equip you with the sites you need should further information be available.

We use the term car quite often in this book, but the guide equally applies to motorbikes, mopeds, vans, lorries, campervans, tractors and even steamrollers.

Don't try getting multicar insurance on a steamroller though.

Firstly... let's look at the wonderful British Newspaper Archive.
