Online Z Car registry


MikeW

Recommended Posts

Many of you have already noticed that I started an online Z car registry using a public spreadsheet called EditGrid. It can be found here:

http://www.editgrid.com/user/mlwilliams/Z_Car_Registry

The good news is that anyone can add or update this list at any time. The bad news is that anyone can update this list at any time. I just had to roll it back to an older revision; it looks like someone might have tried to sort the list and it didn't work properly. I knew there was a problem because my VIN no longer was right; it had shifted in the list. I just added instructions at the top to help prevent that problem in the future.

I apologize for any inconvenience this will cause; some recent entries may be lost. Those who have already entered data may want to verify that it is still correct. All previous revisions should be available so it's always possible to view old data.

Thanks Mike! It will be interesting to see if anyone has a VIN consecutive with anyone else once more members enter their information.

Yes, that will be interesting to me as well.

BTW - you planning to go to the Z-club show on the 25th?

I don't think I'll make it, at least not with my car. I'll be on vacation until the 24th and won't have time to prepare.

I say the more the better. The only question would be how to differentiate such cars. I suppose for now just use "reported by zbane" for the "Member" field. We could always create a separate sheet for them in the future.

Mike, In the future when a separate sheet is made for parts cars and such, it would be nice to include a column for engines. I have a few spares and I'm sure many others do also. It would be interesting to see if a matching engine turns up for someone's car. Just a thought.

Done. I just added an extra tab called "Spare Engines" and columns for Block, Block Serial #, and Head, i.e.,

L24, 058003, E88

Any other columns you can think of?

On a side note, thanks to everyone who's entered data. Someone even managed to hide the first rows on the 240Z page. I'm not sure if that was intended so I undid it and "froze" them instead so that you'll always be able to see the instructions and column headers.

Just added 14 Z's. Unfortunetly they are all known deceased.

Will add my remaining 3 once I collect some numbers. How about a column for S31's?

So far no one has added anything to the "Other S30" page but I just renamed it to "Other S30/S31". I certainly don't want to offend anyone by leaving them out. I'd love to see cars from around the world included.

Please, anyone, feel free to make changes like this yourself as warranted. As long as no information is lost it doesn't bother me. I would like to limit it to Z cars, however.

OK, so I added my car to the registry. Here's an oddity, my car a 1972 240Z s/n HLS30-91415 lands smack in the middle of the 1973 cars, yet its build date of 07/72 clearly places it amongst the 1072 cars. I wonder what the delay was between the build date and the serial number.

See the prior two posts. The spreadsheet is currently messed up again, so the data is not correct. Your VIN HLS30-91415 falls in the range for 7/72 cars on the Zhome registry, which is not directly user editable.

You are right--this is incorrect. The 73 cars do not show up until September of that year. My build date is after yours (August)--and it's still listed as an 72 model.
