Previous/Original owner information?

I was wondering if there was a way to find out contact info for a previous or original owner. I bought the GT from a college kid that didn't even service it while he owned it for 11 months. Now I'm familiar with most MODs but some I don't know (yet) other than visual. Everyday I'm finding new stuff out. The kid says the guy who had it was ramblin on about what he has done to it but it was gibberish to him. I don't even know the brand of springs on her I just know its a 1.5 drop. I'm assuming it has a shorter antenna, another thing I'm not sure about. Gears, don't know the first thing how to tell. I'm use to FWD boosted cars with little torque compared to the GT. My buddy back home with the 04 Termi told me how to check by counting repetitions of the DS with a full repetition of the tire. I dont know it it was tuned or what. It would just make it so much easier to have a full detailed list of what was done. Maybe let someone a lot more familiar with the car drive it? Ive been in fast cars before but behind the wheel of my GT, its crazy powerful. I've gotten into it twice since I bought her last week and I mean WOW!

Any Ideas?

I have papers that were left in my glove box with address, phone numbers, and names but if there isn't anything I don't think that you could find out

For the gears- Raise the rear tires, put a mark on 6'o clock on one rear tire(inside sidewall under the car, then mark same position on the DS. Make 1 complete revolution of the tire and count how many times the DS mark passes.

3.25=3.27 gears

3.5=3.55's

3.75= 3.73's

There is also a tag on one of the diff cover bolts, near the top. The gear size is on this code, can't miss it. If the tag is still there chances are the stock gears are likely still inside.

Re: Previous/Original owner information?

Ya i did the gear test this morning...stock gears. I tried Ford but its 10yrs old so nothing came up in their systems. And considering i bought her 200 miles away it wasnt them who would have records of work done.

Car fax, won't give you names but will give you dealerships etc where it has been serviced, and they may know about the car. Doubt they will give you anyone's name though
