Merkur Registry List: GIVE ME YOUR INFO!!

Post by alexob53 » Fri Jun 24, 2016 1:11 am

Okay everyone, a few months ago I started an online spreadsheet registry to document what Merkurs are left in the world! I have created a google forms sheet which will ask you a quick series of questions then input the data to some charts and ultimately a spreadsheet. Here is the google forms doc:

And here is the spreadsheet it inputs onto:

Feel free to input the information I posted in my thread about estimating the value of my friends car. The location would be Atlanta, GA. Do not list a current owner.

Done. Didn't mean to do all caps. I'm on my computer at work and didn't realize it would look like i'm yelling on the spreadsheet. (Our software/programs all require all caps.) Lol.

I wonder if people keep the VIN's of the cars they've parted and chopped.
Also we could add ones found in Junkyards to that list.

I think parts cars which people own is fine, but we should leave off junkyard cars, since they will likely be crushed at some time in the not-so-distant future.

NOTE: I want to make sure everyone is putting their VIN into the registry to ensure that no car is registered twice by different owners. If you intend to use the link to edit your post after submitting, wonderful! But just so you know, every couple of weeks I will go in and delete all posts without a proper 6-digit VIN.

Somone needs to go around to the DMVs of each state and get info on cars currently registered. I know there are people out there with these cars that are not on the list, or this forum.

Maybe this would be better under the General Info & discussion topic or in many topics, more exposure may help to grow thw Registry list.
