Is my car in it then? 69 X44 and VIN 124379N611150
It sure is Hakan. From December of 2008. Thanks!
maybe i missed a memo, Is the data base visible by current members? Who keeps all the information? if your car is in the data base what are the benefits? Can an owner learn anything about their car? I was curious about my motors stamping one time and Kurt was able to say it was the correct original stamp and provide a picture, but when I asked for my info, I never got a response. Did he get this from the data base? what is the big secret of where the info comes from if I am the owner of the car? maybe I am still missing something here?
The database isn't made public because of all the personal information in it. You can imagine the field day the shysters would have loaded with this info! The cars are entered by Daniel (he does the 67's), myself (I do the 68's) and Kurt, who does the 69's, and is also the main database coordinator. And not everyone in the CRG MEMBERSHIP
has access. This may sound strange, but keeping personal information personal, is job one, so only a few people actually have access. Data can be extrapolated if someone needs it for, say, a report they're writing, but again, the only way to get accurate data without having to worry about comprimising personal data is to keep it close to the vest!
As for benefits, every data point we have is used to create not only the reports we write, but the rest of the information we post on the site. We have almost 19k entries, so we have a pretty good idea of how these cars were manufactured.
However, we DON'T
validate or authenticate cars. There are others that do that for a living and frankly, we just don't have the time to travel back and forth doing this. We're all volunteers and even this takes up a lot of time!
