The police removed the tag on my old car and destroyed the vin number on the firewall. They gave it a new vin number which they stamped into the driver side strut top.
This was all done before I owned the car when it was in the possession of the original owner. Like I said, I had a big wad of police correspondence and contact numbers/names that backed everything up. That's what put my mind at rest.
The original owner was a member here, then so was the owner who had it off him, then there was me, I then sold it on and I think it changed hands a few times since and now the current owner is also a member here so it's gone full circle.
