Database Problems…please readThe hosting company which serves this website has been experiencing recurring and intermittent issues producing the PHP pages needed to access the database. Because this situation is out of the immediate control of the Registry, you may experience an error message stating the database information pages are unavailable. Each time the pages “break” we are required to submit a help ticket, and it can be anywhere from 1 to 8 hours before the problem is rectified. We are working on alternative hosting solutions as a long-term solution but for the time being please accept our apologies if the database is not available.

Important News for Registry Database Users Effective June 8, 2018 a new “VIN Sorter” function was added. It accomplishes the same thing as the previous sorter, but all years 1955-2005 are now displayed using a single page. The VIN Sorter function works only in ascending order of the “last six” numbers in any VIN. You must select a year first, followed by an assembly plant (the plant location names are loaded automatically by year). It has come to the attention of the Registry that about 50 cars are in the database which have duplicate “last six” fields…i.e. P6FH101234 and M6FH101234 which of course is impossible, but these dupes exist because of incorrect reporting or typographical oversights. The incorrect VINs will be eliminated, and the Registry Number will be identifying a car from archived, unused car information. No system is perfect without the assistance of dedicated Thunderbird enthusiasts. If you spot duplicate last six fields please let us know. Your help is greatly appreciated.
