Mick/FoxChassis sent me a photo he found on FB of the Buck Tags for an 89 TXDPS car. It was already in the Project because of the auction information provided by Tom. Due to the way this Project was designed we can always add more photos or make other necessary changes. Note that the tag says STATE OF TEXAS (meaning it could have been used in any capacity by the State), yet the car is confirmed as a TXDPS unit -

Pretty cool!

The last addition for today is a 1993 TXDPS car that I had pictures of in my folder for a few months. I do not recall the source of the photos.

Default Update on Totals

After making the latest additions to the Project, here are the totals by year of where we stand on documenting SSP Mustangs -

1982 --- 30
1983 --- 52
1984 --- 82
1985 -- 277
1986 -- 180
1987 -- 444
1988 -- 432
1989 -- 565
1990 -- 440
1991 -- 233
1992 -- 313
1993 -- 520
------------
. . . 3,573 SSP Mustangs confirmed




Technically, we know that the 394 units grouped together in 1982 are all SSP Mustangs built for the CHP (the last 6 VINs in that batch of 400 were not manufactured by Ford), so the total is actually closer to 4K SSP Mustangs. Not too shabby!

Thatís a lot of great work, thank you. What has it been now, about 10 1/2 years, since the VIN project went live?

Mike, you're right about how long it's been. We should have thrown a party a few months back to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Project. I'm glad that new cars are continuing to show up and get documented.

Thank you, Mike! The best part for me is interacting and meeting people, like you, who are a credit to the SSP hobby.

Default 1987 Nebraska SSP

The new owner of this SSP from Nebraska State Patrol contacted me on FB. It is the first NSP to surface from the 1987 model year and is part of a 30-car consecutive VIN batch.
