I still go there from time to time, mainly to check on Lloyd’s excellent build thread. There are some great people over there, but the site ownership changes, being bombarded with ads and sponsors banners have taken it in a direction that I’m enjoying less and less.

I have 2 of them, as follows:
3938615 1
3938615 2

Originally wondered if the last digit was a version revision, but makes more sense for it to be a mold identifier, unless there is a subtle difference that I can’t spot.

If you share the VIN, that would help. It may be in the CRG database, held by just a few of the core members.

General Discussion / Re: Off topic - Nothing wrong with THESE rotors!

what states require yearly inspections?
We have annual safety inspections down here, and a braking performance test is a mandatory part of that. Even if you somehow missed seeing those worn rotors during the visual inspection, the brake test would’ve shown it up. Annual inspection is about $30 and you must have that safety inspection in hand to renew annual registration and compulsory 3rd-party insurance cover.

Over at in the classifieds.

Also noted the grille emblem placement on the Z/28 models.

Interesting to see how many of the featured cars had D96 pinstripes. Very nice collection of pictures! Thanks for sharing.

Was that a NOS or used filter?

Here's those iPhone pictures:
First one has 'M   3   0'
Second has 'F'
Need to get another picture showing the '1   2'........

I've been slow to catch the updates to this, but what a great and interesting car - thanks for sharing!
One question - looks like one headrest is straight bar and one is bent, or is that just the photo angle? Are they dated?

How can you tell the upper dash panel has been replaced?  2 hidden partial VINs?
Read this for the partial VIN details:
The VIN plate cutout in the upper dash on many reproduction panels differs from the factory originals in a couple of details.

Upper dash panel (at least) has been replaced during the restoration. Not a reason to look elsewhere, just saying you need to check everything out (including the 2 hidden partial VINs) in person to be sure what you're looking at is as represented.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: V2016WH Is it a mistake

Looks like a mistake as the gang stamp was made up for that day's production, although surprised they appear to have changed the month too, rather than just incrementing the day from the previous. Expect they caught the error quickly, so this block may have been stamped early on the 16th.
