Mike I will send you the info . You are taking on a big registry possible doing all '66s I have started doing a Daytona only one and am at 14 so far. Sometimes its hard to get owners to send you info . Good luck.

Thanks Bob. As there were only 8,935 cars built, and I'll guess only 1/3 of them still exist, it shouldn't be too hard (Aren't computers wonderful....if I just knew how to use them....). I got all the cars from Mark's Cruiser registry, and a couple from contacts I've made thru the roster, so I'm near 20 cars so far. I have original info on 4 others (from printed material) but don't know if the cars are still alive or not.

Once I get some help getting a formal registry set up on line, I'll have the link to it posted so people can find it. One of my comanders has been in SDC for a long time, but the other had been hidden away for the last 30 years.

There are at least 2 in Manitoba. Jim Waldie has a Green Cruiser email: jtwalde@mts.net. Has been in the family since new.
Barrie Brooks from Winnipeg has another green 66. No email available.

There's a radio button (called post icons) you can select below your text when posting... maybe we'll have to convince Bob Shaw to provide "Forum Lessons" at Glendale. :confused::)

Or maybe not, we don't want him to run off screaming into the night!:eek::p

Thanks guys for the help in getting some more cars registered. I think it will be nice to have all of the last year cars on one list after all these years.
