    Hi everyone, recently I've started to have serious regrets about trading in my VE SS. I traded it in over a year ago for a WM caprice. It's not a bad car just not for me. If anyone could help me to track it down or has any idea how I could find it my self that would be great. I traded the car in Townsville but was told it would go to a wholesaler down south I think he mention Brisbane.

    The car was a VE SS series 2 2011 MY12 black in color. VIN number is 6G1EK5E22CL606101

    Who is to say even if you find it the new owner will part with it.

    Needle in a haystack springs to mind.

    Apart was trolling for sites like gumtree n car sales. Good luck!

    The new/current owner might keen it for another 10 years, especially if it's under finance which could mean their locked into the car for up to 7 years.

    Why does it have to be the same car? Can't you get another black SS like it?

    Would you even want it back?

    New owner may have changed something, not treated it as well, someone else having it for that year may have taken away that special bond you had with it.

    I would cut your losses and either try find a new SS or do something to the WM that will make it "yours".

    Might have some sentimental attachment to it....who knows.....

    I read on another forum, someone looking for their Dad's old car.....the last they knew of it was from 1992.....Strangely enough, I happen to have owned the car since 2008 and the owner was stoked to have found it.

    So miracles to occur

    Yeah but did he want to buy it back? And if so, did you or the owner sell it to him?

    After 12 months, the person is still trying to buy the car back from me, but I'm not selling it.....

    The last the person knew of the car was it was traded in at a car yard

    I am unsure how many people owned the car over the missing 15 years, but I do know I didn't buy it from him
