Cool Looking for Mr. Gale in Trowbridge, England!?!

It's a long-shot I know, but I thought it was worth a try

I am trying to locate a Mr. Gale who during 1999 lived in Trowbridge and was (for a very short time) the proud owner of a Guards Red 911SC - that would be my current wheels I am trying to do some history work on my car, and he might hold one of the missing parts!! I spoke to the garage (Steven Bull) who serviced the car from 1999 up to me taking over the ownership, and they were able to give me his name, but had no other contact details on file They do have a slight recollection that he also had a 944, but can not be 100% sure...

If there are any Pelicans in the UK, who might know this gentleman, or know how I can locate him, then please let me know.... Thank you.

I am sorry no one with relevant info on the PO has posted (so far).

Damn - you´re gonna get real busy this winter !! Rebuild ? Top end, or what ? How many miles ? Why ???!!

Get everything I need from Ferdinand. Very nice people (Peter Hajas) with personal involvement and rather swift shipping. Can´t say if competitive price - but being able to discuss projects in Swedish with a competent person is worth a lot to me.

Always nice to get hold of previous owners and chat with them. You can get a lot of useful information that way. Good when you are close to buying a car, POs really say what they think, the current owner may hold information back.
I have taked to 3 of 5 PO of my car, got some good info from that.

How about this:

A.K Gale - 0.8 miles NE - Rodwell Lodge Victoria Rd, Trowbridge, BA14 7LA - 07970 925119
R.G Gale - 4.3 miles S - 29 Fairdown Avenue, Westbury, BA13 3HS - 01373 864405

Also a business that he could have been involved with: Cleveland & Gale - 0.2 miles N - 48 Timbrell St, Trowbridge, BA14 8PN - 01225 774743
