I'm looking for the same info, I may have added mine years ago with the 'software' that I downloaded and ran, but never got confirmation if it entered.

Maybe I should list it as 18N331439 but I notice in the orphan section that the 1 is left off the front.    It would be nice if there was a list per year of the last 6 digits of a VIN or something for cars that are in the registry.  Or something along those lines.


This is an excellent site, BTW, to keep up with this info

Sorry, I somehow missed this.

The CRG database has 17,000+ vehicles in it with data gathered from many different sources - cars, documentation, orphaned engine/trans, forum posts, data submitted, ebay, etc.
It was designed from the beginning as a research tool - gotta have data if you are going to have facts to base research on. There are no plans to ever make it publicly searchable/available. The confidentiality of the db is a key feature that has resulted in data being submitted that otherwise would not be available. The data results from the db appear throughout the website - paint percentages, research articles, etc.

Steve,
Yes, your car is in it, via a post you made on TC. :) No drivetrain info though. Engine, trans, or axle codes?

Dustin,
No, your car was not in it.  But I had your tag pic from TC and just entered it. Interesting, there's another convertible with the same colors (red on red) only 2 VINs away from yours. That's unusual. Same area too.
Trans or axle codes?

Thanks guys!

Kurt,

Thanks for the reply.  I can get the other code info to you.   I downloaded a program a few years ago that I inputed the data to send, but didn't think it worked (operator error probably).

That is very odd about the other one being nearby, since I found that my car came from South Carolina in mid 70's to WV.   I have WV and VA DMV records from mid 70's until present.

Also, I understand the data not being made public.  I thought about that after the fact.   It's sad that there are those who would use the info for counterfit purposes, but that's the world we live in now.    Again, thanks for the great job you do keeping up with CRG!

I have 3 69's I have owned for a long time. There is very little posted about the cars as I bought them long before the internet became public and I have been a little secretive about my cars. These unknown cars are pretty original and should probably be in the DB as they could be of use for documentation (correctness).How do I get them in this DB?
