Question

A man gave a car to another man for nothing in return, and the one to whom it was given sold it to a third person. The first owner wants to buy it back from the other person who bought it. Is this permissible?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is permissible to buy back a gift in the manner described, because the giver is buying it from someone other than the one to whom it was given. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
