Database of "loose" / ebay trim tags
« on: March 08, 2011, 07:45:03 PM »
Kevin has made a site that lists and shows tags that were for sale on ebay, craigslist, etc. Mostly trim tags, but there are a few VIN tags too. Just an fyi.....

Wow!  Beautiful job, Kevin!!

Is there a way to add a cowl tag to your database?  I see a lot of the cowl tags I posted here on CRG in your database, but I have a few that don't show up on your site.
For example...  124378N478184  68-12437NOR179130  (photo attached)

Also, in the case of VIN tags, is there a way to do a search with the VIN or partial VIN?

Again, great job and thanks for making our hobby a little safer!

BTW, here's my original post on the above VIN and cowl tags...

They were being sold on Ebay back in April of 2008.

You put a tremendous amount of work into this. What I like most about it is how user friendly it is. Excellent Job!

Your 68 is a cream puff, and...you stole it. ;)

BTW...If you need a paint chart for 69 let me know...

I have some different information on cowl tag 69-12437NOR1xxxxx than you have on your site.  The attached link shows it was sold on 2-27-11 for $125.00.  Buyer was butkusfan.

>68-12437NOR11484
I did ask that he break the lines of data apart, e.g. 68-12437 NOR11484. The problem is if you google NOR11484, it won't show up.

Also note that some of the tags are fakes. Go figure, people will pay more for a fake tag than it would cost to have a fake one made.....

Thanks Paul! I'll get this one added to the database shortly. If you have any more, feel free to send them to me at kevin@y2camaro.com.

Thanks Marty! I'd love a copy of the 69 paint chart. I bought one a while ago, but now I can't find it. If you could scan it and send it to kevin@y2camaro.com that would be great.

That's a great suggestion, Kurt. I'll work on making it more friendly to a Google search. Improving the database search will be a little more challenging!
