The DeTomaso Registry database has just released a whole page of new search functions.

Now you can search the DeTomaso Registry by numerous new features.

www.DeTomasoRegistry.org

The Testers favorite function is the Wheel & Tire search.
Here you can enter various sizes, and see a listing of cars with your selection. Then click on the link to the Detail & Photo page for a specific car and you see what a car looks like with those wheels and tires.

Original Campagnolos? 9" wide & 12" wide Campy Clones, or maybe the 16" diameter front, 17" diameter rear Campy Clone set compared to the 17" both front and rear variation.

Also now available are results listed by Body Service Number, Engine Number, and even ZF transaxle number ordered for your viewing.

Many new search features are in the works.

With more than 1,000 cars and growing fast, there is much to see.

Access to the World-Wide Registry is free, and is open to anyone willing to share. Add a DeTomaso to the Registry, any DeTomaso, and you are welcome to share in the benefits of this unique resource.

Computer challenged or just need some help? Someone is often available online to help you contribute a car, and get you going quickly. For self-help there is also a Frequently Ask Questions (FAQs) page.

I should have read your whole message, but I got too excited and went to the site. I did the registration and eagerly clicked the search registry link. BAM - brick wall. I don't have the photos needed to add my car, and I don't want to be a jerk and add someone elses car...so maybe another day.

Robert,

I just checked for the entry you said you added, and found none. Adding just the data portion for your car gets you similar Registry access. But the best part of the Registry for many is the images (and video).

So why could you not contribute photos?

If you don't know how I can help.

...and you would not be a jerk if you added photos of other cars. Quite a number of people have added images of cars they have seen at SEMA, car shows, the Vegas Rally, or the recent PI Motorsports party.

It's about sharing information of DeTomaso automobiles.

So if you need help, let me know.

Chuck
Ok, first what is the 4-digit vin of the car, and when did you send photos?

Images are manually processed (edited, re-sized, color-balanced etc...) and then the Detail & Photo page is built.

You can contact me directly:

Hey Chuck,

No, I didn't add an entry. I will add my car, but I want to have all the things needed to make the entry complete, including photos - of which I have few, and they are not on my home computer (which is the main reason I didn't do the entry last night).

Can I edit the entry at any time? Say, to add photos at a later date?

I thought it would be rude to find info about a car online and put it in the database in case the current, or future owner of the car wants to join your site but can't because his car is already there.

Photos from a PI event? Car shows with DeTomasos? Bwahaaahaaaa. I live in Vegas, which is a Pantera vacuum (other than when you all visit once a year).

I will get my ducks in a row and register soon. :-)

R.
R,
It's easy to update an entry at a later time. (Security only allows the submitter to update their entry.)

People do come back to update or correct the little details, or add more photos later, although often people do forget, or procrastinate too.

If everyone waits to add a car, on the thought that some day, some future owner MAY want to add it themselves... then there would NEVER be a Registry - GRIN!

It's easy for someone whose car is already in the Registry to earn access. There are several ways, but it is never easier, and quicker than being the first to add a specific car.
It has already become necessary for someone to check that a car does not already exist, before they begin completing the form.

All these details are in the FAQs pages by the way.

My car is 4903. It is a black 73 GTS.
"DeTom",

Your data portion is present, but there are no images.

I've searched my personal image library, and I've checked if they may have been mis-entered in the Registry database. Then I checked my image processing queue. They don't exist.

Next I've done a search of my various e-mail accounts, using 4903 as the search criteria, and nothing is found.

So it is likely they never arrived.

Please send them again. Use editor1 (at) provamo.com

(Substitute the @ for (at) above.)

Once the system senses you have provided images to share, you account gets Registry access.

Chuck
Curt,

The website is based upon sharing. Provide something to share, and it shares with you.

You should review the Registry Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page at:

http://www.provamo.com/Members/Registry/RegistryFAQs.asp

I swear I've seen a camera in your hands at least once at a Tech Session! What you may find regarding your car, is if it already exists in the Registry, the photo page may not have a complete (or current) set of photos. Often VIN plates are missing for example.

You have had your car a while, if my memory serves correctly. You have also done some work.
Perhaps you can add something to the Tech Info pages that others can benefit from.

Seperately, if have some parts for sale (those rubber things...) you may want to offer them for sale on the for sale page.


Chuck
Kevin Rapid,

Did you first check to see if the car already exists?

If you are adding a Pantera, did you use 5 digits in the "short VIN" field that is expecting only 4 digits?

The first section marked CRITICAL, is just that, critical. Any typos or errors, with these fields and the result is like you experienced.

I need to know at least the "short VIN" so I know what to search for.

Contact me directly.

Chuck
Hi Chuck, I went to register our car and when I saw all of the info you can submit, I stopped. My problem is all of the data plates on our car were missing when we purchased it. Is there any way the other numbers for our car can be found?? The only way we got 1717 titled was through the VIN stamped in the front boot. I had to take a picture to supply to the Secretary of State.
Jeff
Jeff S.

You should enter your car with whatever info you have. It is probably THPNLY01717.

Only thru interpolation (remember math class?)
can you guess at a range of numbers than may suit your car.

You may have the original block, and thus find the block number on the block.

(Rear of engine, below left head, above bell housing, 5 digits, starts with 0.)

Did you buy it from Mr. Fowler?
Anyway, send in some pics, and I'll start building your Detail & Photo page.

Chuck
Thanks Chuck, Yes I did buy it from Gale Fowler, I sent you a PM when you posted that question to me. Guess you didnt get it. Gale told me that wasnt the original engine...but it is a Pantera motor, has the short number stamped into it. I need to call him I have forgotten some of the info he told me when we at his house. I want to find out who built the engine. I know it was done by a Pantera engine builder in Californa, would love to talk to him to see if he has any info on what he exactly did to the motor. I will get you some pics soon.
Jeff
