Thoughts?
There are several "Wikipedia" platforms that could be used. You can see there's almost an entire "Wikipedia" for almost anything you can think of - from individual video game "worlds," TV series, etc. That would be how I'd recommend it be done - and I do believe it's a great idea.

I would think we might want to track ownership throughout the life of the vehicle. Knowing where a vehicle came from and what subsequent owners were could be beneficial in tracking changes to lights etc on ambulances as well as changes in color on all vehicles...

Default Got My TPC Today

I was excited to receive the latest TPC and live some memories of our Gettysburg Int'l Meet. Lots of great pictures and articles.

Thanks for another great issue of The Professional Car.

Mine showed past week north here.
May I suggest if we update the roster with infos, why not add the general state of a vehicle which may look like:
1: showroom
2: driveable
3: project
4: parts car
Some pictures on the web shows really nice pro cars but the pictures are 15, 20 years old; projects are going well or the cars are left rotten somewhere. Just like the '66 Superior used for parts for my Pontiac that was stunning... in 1997. Keep a picture database would be awesome but I think we have a better chance to do it on this forum, there is a lot of members who aren't computer friendly even in 2017.

I have intermediate Microsoft access database skills, since I have posted this I have been "experimenting" on what it could be like to have a National Registry of Professional Cars.

The only way to track the cars is with there manufacture number. To much gets changed from time to time on them. To be able to be sure .The attempt to do the citations awhile back showed just how fast they change. Every one had pictures of the same care in different dress.

As far as the database, I keep a "master list" of all the vehicles I've noted/listed at all the International Meets back to 1994.
