Just following on from Timbo Ambo question about the list.
Steve had the idea to collect tags and in 2008 I started going through all the tags and created the spreadsheet.
It provided lots of info which answered a lot of questions.
Steve wanted a copy of the spreadsheet and I emailed to him.
Unfortunately it needed to have only one person updating it otherwise the data becomes different on each version.
The last copy I have in way out of date. It would be a few years old now.
So if anyone has the current version, I would love to get a copy and see what has changed.

Wow, interesting how brizzy got to 1805 builds by the 827th 225 our of Sydney if reading it right. Early 138 block sounds right but the subframe number? Or did they start at 1000?

Hi Moderators.
I just posted this on FaceBook. I'm here to get things moving on having a database we can all use and add to. Most of these earlier posts on these 75 pages are lost. Opinions please.

Great idea Tim. I know some of the mods have moved on. Thommo sold his cars and moved on to boats. Seems to be bit of an orphan in need of adoption.

There's a fella on the one of the FB/EK FaceBook pages who seems to be collecting data (for 10 yrs now). His name is Steve Jackson. He also says he hasn't had anything to do with this forum for 5yrs now. Dunno why, don't care. Another person posted on FBook that they are also collecting the data: Lee Rodda.

....as long as the data can be massed together somewhere, and be both accessible to all, and be kept up to date. Then we all win. :wink34:

That's me making my own copy, I might just borrow Sunny Tim's version when it surfaces and adjust as necessary. The problem with too many versions is everybody collects different cars and then some fall through the cracks, I found this when sharing HQ-Z info with another researcher. In the end we would colour in the new data we added so the other person could look quickly to see if they also had the new id's.

Hi Tim (HRambo) good to see you are still keeping Old Holden alive :thumbsup:

When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Geez you get around Blacky! These old Holdens just seem to continue to find you. At least someone appreciates good cars. :thumbsup:

The one on the ground mate, had a few good bits on it , wiper washers, heater vents , reversing switch etc - the dealer must have blinged it up to showcase the new model. I am going to go back and rip a few more bits off all of them when I get a bit more time.
