        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.

                  Bob - Lookin' good, but I'm still trying to figure out why you started this thread with an "unhappy" face.

                      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.

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

                          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.
