Database download.

Post by dollysprint » Sat Nov 09, 2013 9:34 pm

Several weeks ago I recieved a request for the database to be made viewable in this Archive section.
I have no problem with this and would indeed value input from other members looking at the information.
After consulting with Richard and the other moderators we are all agreed that this would be a good source of information for members to be able to view. Please note the keyword here is MEMBERS, and members only, no guests will be able to see this.

With that in mind, I would ask now, if any member has an objection to their car(s) details being viewed and believes their car is on the database( highly probable) then drop me a pm with your details and I shall remove your car from the viewable database before it is added to the site.
I will give this until the end of November to allow plenty of time, in the meanwhile if anyone has any constructive comments then please post in this thread.

I thank you
Dave

I'll use one of my own cars as an example, the columns are set out like ths;-

world code.......def.........number....eng.....spec...........body..........trans..reg......date......build.......year.....colour
SARRS CLDJXM 259759 2.0 STERLING COUPE AUTO S470OFR 6.11.98 AUG 1998 BLUE

Thats the extent of any personal information on the cars held on the database. Some of the KV6 cars also have their engine numbers listed as we were trying to ascertain headgasket upgrade and engine replacement ect. A few have other information like, LIMO, HEARSE, Midsummer murders car that sort of thing.
The rest of the database is a collection of build totals, change over dates and my own projections of each model numbers built based on percentages, what the definition letters mean, dvla codes and how many were left of each model when the database was started 3 years ago(its long out of date now).
Its by no means finished and will continue to be updated as time goes on.

Hope that helps.

Dave

For some reason the vehicle details have closed up instead of staying under their headings!! I bloody hate technology especially when I dont understand it :oops:

I have no objections to any info being posted as long as it excludes my address.

There are no addresses on the database, some of the cars used to have the owners name tagged to it but these have now been removed. It would be interesting to see how many plates you recognise though Brad, many will have passed your way over the years I'm sure.

No worries Steve, although your Coupe is tagged as possible engineering/development car.

I think we can agree development after what we found during the clutch change and suspension markings.
