Dash plate idea

I saw this on another forum I thought it would be a good idea for the California Special registry for our dash plates. What do you all think.

I like the one on the right. It looks more "period correct".

For the '68 cars, I actually have had that in the works. We talked about it some time ago. Owners would have to provide a Marti Report, or Orig. invoice (copies) to get one. it would affix to the notch in the driver's side fender, via sticky emblem tape, or rivets. It's coming....and the artwork is 90% done.

As for the late models--nothing yet, but I could get to it after I finish my other "very busy' projects right now.

It's a good idea, and it adds to the car.

How were you doing the registry numbering on the plate? My thought for the newer GTCS was something like this: GTCS2007XXXX. Where the X's would be the member number in the registry.

Well, I don't agree that you can just set up a sequence number of "who has what dash emblem". In the context of doing a true registry, that makes no sense.

I, or someone needs to find where in the 2007 VIN number is the sequence build number. That is what should be used. We can make up a prefix, that's OK, but it should be followed by the build number (or part of it at least).

Also--in order to give these plaques (late model) "meaning", I would need proof of it actually being a GT/CS. This would mean a photocopy of the actual invoice. With these fascia parts, side scoops and stripe kits available, we're back to proof of authenticity.

I know the enthusiasm for these cars is rampant--and I totally understand, but we need to do this right, and consistent with the WHOLE registry, to make it valid, and to make it right. This will take some time.
