Re: TQC Stats & trivia
Requarding the boot straps :-) they are supposed to be for
a safety triangle, I think. (isn't this the law in Germany?)
The way the year coding goes is like this. A = 80, B = 81,
C = 82, ... My car is an official US model. It was built
in 11/81, and came into the US through Pier 6, LA Harbor
in March of 1982. I think this makes it one of the very first.
I think the VIN's tend to go a bit non-sequentiall, and it's
hard to get much in the way of cronology from them. A bit of
a grab bag. The letters and build dates seem more informative.
Of the ninety five cars registered when the article in QCUSA-NL
it says that 16 were 1985's. If you are competing for Last In,
you are definitely in the running. Maybe we can contact Bill Bremer
directly and get more info. I have sent him a letter already.
