Default Confused

I'm a little confused. Mine, 111908 has a DSO of 72 (San Jose). And it definetly was painted B&W. So why is it listed under without DSO's?

Very simply, I did not know of that DSO (720009). I have updated that info.

I had a question, in 1982 I'm seeing 400 consecutive VIN's and in my research of another car, I see that there were supposed to be 5 extra cars and 2 prototypes for 1982. I'm no expert but I'm trying to figure this whole SSP thing out. Were all 400+ SSP's in 1982 then CHP?

Negative. The 400 cars are all CHPs. As far as the "protoypes" are concerned, the one that "VintageRacer" has does NOT have a 6-digit DSO, and is NOT an SSP. The Marti Report shows it was a "police demo" (lots of cars are). I still have never seen any proof from him that it was a CHP car, an "EVOC" car, or the "first" of anything. He was given the opportunity to post that info here when he was still a member, but he did not do so.

As for the CHP Hatchback cars, well, there was a member here that had one, but we never saw a build sheet or assignment card documenting CHP service. I do remember an in-service pic of the car somewhere. That car did have a DSO. It was sold by the owner at one of the auction houses.

I'm not sure what the big deal about documentation is; I've posted up every build sheet and every other piece of documentation about these cars that I've ever found.

Hope this helps, Greg.

I've seen the hatchback that's why I asked. I'm still new at this but it is cool to see all the documentation you can find on these cars!

No prob...we are all still learning. New info about these cars is discovered on a regular basis. Part of the fun.

Toshi,

I missed your post, but it's a good question, since other people may have the same one.

Mick has been kind enough to not only run these for us, but now also post them. What I'm working on for us here is more of the same, but with a different twist. Any time we have a batch of VERIFIED cars (agency, service, etc) it will be linked to the specific VIN. As a example, for my '83 CSP car, you will see it in the list with the rest, but the VIN will be "clickable", and the link will take you to the supporting documentation for that unit.

Unverified cars won't have this feature, DSO number or not.

What I have put up that you can click on now is probably just temporary, until Mike gets the page(s) done here. It's really just running on a PC I put together with spare parts, connected to a DMZ router, on my home network.

BTW, for 111908, I'm not sure if you want to list it as CHP just yet. I don't have any proof that it did anything with them but sit in their storage lot before being shipped off to some other type of department, state, federal or what have you. Yes, it was painted B&W, but its got gray over that, and now Reef Blue over that. And there are no holes for anything anywhere, as what I have seen so far.
