Car history check....From new?

I am wondering if there is a way of finding out the complete history of a car going back say to 1990.

Not the standard check you can have if it's HP clear etc etc but a real long term. MOT's were logged online from 2005 so what about before that. Is there a way?

The only other way would be to contact all the previous owners but I doubt you would get such information form the DVLA or such mainly due to the Data Protection Act. Even some garages won't divulge such info., for the same reasons.

I always thought that a dealer would hold this info ..I had a friend who worked for fiat [parts manager ] and he got all my service history for me on all the second hand fiat cars I bought ..this would only apply of course if the car was continually serviced and repaired by them..
