Default looking for previous owner of my insight

howdy fellas, i just picked up a second insight this past weekend and from the looks of the car i suspect the old owner may be or once was a member here.
some things that stand out about the car
has 2 toggle switches inside one on dash and one on steering column
has eye bolts on both driver and passenger side of the front bumper (assuming for doing alignments?)
has a front tow bar set up for being flat towed behind an rv or truck
and lastly it has the scotts belly pan.

if the old owner is here or anyone knows them id like to ask some questions about its history.

also it is the one in the back in the pictures with 2 insights

Post the VIN or at least the last six. Try a title search at the DMV.

I wouldn't call them a dealer personally but i suppose they were technically a dealer. basically just a bunch of guys with a dealer license flipping cars from the auctions.

Have you checked in the glovebox for records and such? Mine came with the original window sticker, a bunch of maintenance records, and a copy of the original purchase agreement signed by the original owner....who actually purchased the Insight back in 2006 from the same dealership my dad currently works at.

Ya nothing in the glove box. But it having the belly pan on it makes me think the last owner was likely a member here
