Something must have gone wrong. I can try to register for you with a temporary password if you let me know what member name you like and your e-mail address. We had some server problems a couple of days ago, maybe that caused a fault when you registered.

So, time for the first update on the number of cars identified. Let's start with the 3.8 LHD.

723 cars have been found since the international register started in Nov. of 2008.

Country / Numbers found on March 16th 2009

Sweden = 338
Germany = 93
U.S.A. = 64
Russia = 51
Finland = 28
Latvia = 15
Brazil = 14
Japan = 12
Switzerland = 12
Norway = 10
United Kingdom = 9
Poland = 8
Italy = 8
Spain = 7
Netherlands = 7
Canada = 6
Denmark = 5
Turkey = 4
Belgium = 4
Iceland = 3
Ukraine = 3
Austria = 3
France = 3
South Korea = 2
Luxemburg = 2
Hungary = 1
Greece = 1
Czech Republic = 1
Serbia = 1
South Africa = 1
Belarus = 1
United Arab Emirates = 1
Argentina = 1
Peru = 1
Nigeria = 1
Guadeloupe = 1
Gibraltar (UK) = 1

Of those 723, the following have been wrecked:

Sweden = 83
Germany = 8
Norway = 6
Latvia = 1
U.S.A. = 1

Of those 723, the following have been stolen:

Russia = 26
Sweden = 7

The number for Germany is of course far from all cars. An estimation would be 350-400 cars there including the wrecked ones. Also France and Italy, way too little to show any good statistics. Help is needed with these countries. Maybe someone can check with their department of motor vehicles? VIN is needed, license plate not interesting.

RHDs will follow.

OK, I have just tried to register again with the same user name as I have here.

I received the same message - that the site is restricted and will require approval, which will come by email. How long does that normally take?

If it speeds things up, please register me using this user name and a temporary password.

Cheers

Hi , I have just bought GA25481 , Calypso Red , from member Scotchw and it's an absolute cracker that is causing me a huge dilema , as I'd initially bought it with the intention of breaking for spares due to an apparently failed head gasket .

However , this particular late ( 05/91 production and 11/92 registration ) 3.6 is far too good to break and I'm going to have to put her right as a potential keeper .......just don't tell Melissa , as my car collection is becoming ridiculous !

Hey HD91...

Just a clarification so there's no confusion. I'm listed as living in Australia (for a few more years) but the car (GA25308) is actually in Cyprus. Hope it hasn't caused any great confusion.

Hi there stedes,
Yes, I got that. It should be listed as Cyprus. Did you also know of another 3.6 RHD in Cyprus?
