Reply to "GT5 & GT5-S Production Numbers"

Thank you Jimmym and Rocky.

The 9000 series registry now contains many, many thousands of photos adding up to over 10GB of data. What you see on the ProvaMo registry website is just the tip of the iceberg because of space limitations and privacy considerations.

Some years ago I grappled with the question of how to make it more widely available to the DeTomaso community, but could not come up with a solution that would not be a full time job. I have had to satisfy myself with just making it available to the few historians among us. POCA, PI, UKDTDC & Svenska De Tomaso Klubben, all of whom have endorsed my registry, will also have copies in case I get hit by a bus.

A copy of the index to the registry is available on the members-only side of the POCA web site, by the way. It is usually not up to date because I forget or don't get around to sending it to the web master that often, but it is still useful in giving you some idea of where the known 9000 series cars are in the world today.

I hope people appreciate just how much work Chuck puts into the ProvaMo registry web site, because I can tell you just tracking the few cars that I have and merely compiling the information into files without processing it is a massive time commitment. For Chuck to have tracked information on several thousand cars as he has, and then single-handedly processed it to write up entries that can be posted publicly without causing privacy concerns, not to mention building and maintaining his website, is nothing short of a wonder. I really don't know how he does it.
