Strange coincidence

Recommended Posts

Bought a car in the UK last year which was subsequently written off when we had the floods. I handed the keys back to the insurance company and waved her off; great little car it was.

 

Took the replacement car to the Lake District for her first UK outing this week. Parked up in Keswick and saw a car that looked like the previous one Parked about 4 spaces away. It was back on its UK plate (the same one as when we brought her over) but definately our car) Bizarre.

 

Wonder if the new owner knew it was a flood write off? Presume they dry em' out and sell them as a Cat C?

All in all, it wasn't a bad first day.

This is like when you go on holiday and bump into people from the Isle of Man.

Do I HPI check if you wish to check, small fee, it does make you wonder if it was written off on its Manx reg and not it's UK reg? Is it possible to hide a cars history? Perhaps they mark against chassis number not reg?
