HELP ME FIND MY MUMS X1/9!! 7 years 7 months ago #33756

Hi guys!

I am wondering if you could help me! my mum recently asked me if I could locate her old x1/9 for her, It is a car she holds many fond memories of, and still harps about today!only parted with it due to the birth of a child... :whistle:

According to the DVLA it was last taxed in June 1999, was a blue 1500cc model with the registration MWL673W. I would be delighted to locate it, and if possible acquire it at some point.

Any info would be much appreciated!!

I have just done a reg search on the free MyCarCheck app and it is not showing any details. I will run a HPI search later and see if that shows anything up (I work in the used car trade so costs very little to do).

It is possible the car is on a private plate, in which case it might be difficult to locate... or worse case scenario, scrapped :ohmy: :(

Good news!

It was resprayed red and this colour was registered with the DVLA in 1997.

9 former keepers and the present keeper has had the car since 1998.

No MOT details held by the DVLA at the moment.

I wonder if it is a potential barn find

Good luck, I hope you find it.

:woohoo: that is extraordinary you could find that this quick! seriously many thanks. sure the car can be found, though hopefully not as far as Ireland. but would make a holiday if it was! the knowledge that he is now red is a real find.

Probably quicker and it will be in better condition than one stored in a barn for nearly 20 years...

I have just had a look on twitter to see if there are any photo's of your mums car kicking about, but sadly nothing.

Have you tried contacting the DVLA? I know they wouldn't disclose the whereabouts for data protection reasons but if you wrote to them and asked them to forward your letter onto the current owner they MIGHT just be a little bit helpful for once?
