burnt 2008 magnetic grey g8 gt last summer (2013) in Philadelphia pa, long shot in da

As title states. Trying to track down the previous owner (or seeing if he is on here). I picked up a burnt (engine fire) g8 from the insurance auction to rebuild and just curious if the previous owner is a member on here? Car is toast (literally) but I am gunna rebuild it with a few mods. Lmk thanks
