locating prior owners

My new to me s2k has had 3 prior owners. Car went from VA to WV then back here to VA. Seeing some of the things that were done, i'm curious to see if I can track the prior owners.

For instance, I didn't realize that the exhaust was aftermarket (supersprint). Someone also installed a new alpine head unit with the imprint unit (yes, that I could tell right away) but less obvious was the JL 700/5 amp. There was a box of part and cables in the rear, but looking at the parts and the trunk, I'm wondering if there was a subwoofer that someone took out.

So, any suggestions?

Car is a 2005 Rio Yellow. Not sure posting the VIN would make a diff so I won't.

There's a S2000 registry here that you can use to try to find your VIN. There are also a couple of people who work for Honda dealers who might be able to get you some info.

The registry doc on google is down at this time. Going through the s2ki thread, there seems to have been some screen shots taken at times.

Try this link, while it has not been updated in forever maybe you can find your vehicle.

Actually, the very first link in that thread works (though it does say the doc is in the owner's trash!)

Looks like there are multiple versions going 'round. At any rate, no luck locating my vin there.

Thanks,

I have a funny story. The other day I had to adjust my parking break. So I pulled up the console and under there was a receipt from the owner in 2002 and the price of gas was $1.56 in CT. The receipt had the guys name on it too. I tried finding him through facebook but have hit a wall. Thought is was cool to find that, but the console was off before when my buddy did the clutch guess he just threw it back in lol. So if I ever get rid of my S I will put this receipt back and add one of my own.

If you buy a surplus Swiss K-31 rifle, there is also a pretty good chance that you will find a tag under the buttplate with the name and unit of the soldier that was last issued the rifle. Some people have had luck reconnecting with the soldiers, and some would even send the new owners all kinds of goodies associated, like the bayonet, pouches, etc.
