Funny Previous-Owner Story

Funny story time! My car, before i bought it, had only one previous owner. The past year ive owned the car, ive always wanted to know who it was, and if they took care of it. Well, my glovebox is like a pandora's box sometimes. I put things in there, they get lost, and they show back up again. I guess the same happened for the previous owner too!

I had the car for a whole year and a half, when my fiancee was looking in my glovebox for my AUX cable to my Ipod, she noticed some receipts. These were not receipts, but credit card statements from the previous owner. They had his full name, credit card number, account number, and the date. They were dated for '06 (the year of the car) so I know that this was the previous owners info.

I went home, and went to Facebook, and searched that name for people in the area, and found 2 people with the same name. So I messaged both asking if they ever owned a '06 Ford Focus ZX4 ST. One of them replied and asked if it was a Silver one (mine) or a liquid grey one (not mine) lol I guess the dude is a car pimp or something.

I told him what happened with his credit card info, and told him im not a bad guy and i wont do anything to it, and ill mail it to him if he wanted me to. He didnt seem to concerned about the credit card info, so im pretty sure it was a dead account. I told him that im taking good care of the car, and he said he took care of it also. So it was reassuring to me to know that.

Sorry if you think this pointless, i found it rather enjoyable lol

I found something similar in my SHO's glovebox. But unfortunately in my case I'm the 5th owner as far as I know (4th legally) But I found the original owner's name + his wife's name + birthday and address on a Ford pamphlet thing the dealer printed out a label and attached to.
I google street viewed the house and I found a pre 2010 Fusion in the driveway so I suppose they replaced it with that

Yeah, under my backseat carpet I found a receipt from 2002 for a park entrance fee nearby my house. Thought it was kind of a neat, having sat there for 8 years lol.

When I sold my S40 it went to a kid 16-17. I never thought I'd see it again, well one day I was going to pick my brother up at work just driving through a residential neighborhood, I looked to my left and there it is! In a house's driveway just chilling. Still shiny and everything! Made me feel good that she's still being driven.
