Cuz, please, you were confusing enough the topic... :lol:

I made it for being only a database... please, if you want to see next chapter on your spy story book, do you mind to move somewhere else? :lol:

Maurizio,
I saw an advertisement for this trailer today.
Here are the pictures attached to the ad,

Notice above the data plate there is another small number plate attached.

Looking at the surroundings, I think this trailer is about 2 hours drive away from me. I may be able to give you more details about it if needed.

I will register your trailer in my database... by the way, we still have to discover what's the meaning of those digits on data plates (common)... :roll:

Hello friends,

In addition to my two converto trailers that are on the list, I'd like to submit information on a converto
that my uncle owns. He has been a long time collector of military vehicles with a focus on W.W.II ones in
particular. Everthing from a half track to an armored car and a Jeep! He doesn't own a computer and has
no plans/interest of ever having one in fact.

Here is the data from his trailer plate....


USA Reg. # 0650786

Dated 6/17/43

CI - 1483

Cambridge City, IN

HIs information for the data base: Richard Antram
118 Oxford Heights Road
Somerset, PA 15501
U.S.A.

Can someone send me a link to the updated trailer listing that I can print a copy out for him with his trailer listed on it please? :D As I said, my data for two additional converto trailers should be on there already.... had a number data plate on one with the second one having the data plates missing.


Thanks,

Dave Antram

Hi Dave,

tks for the update.

I added this informations to my database. I'm updating it every now and then on first page,...but I emailed a copy of the 2007 Excel file (go to MS website if you need a reader) to your email address right now.
"owners" column is reporting the nickname rather than the real name, and however...as I got the trailers' details from. in case of your uncle, he will be there with his real name instead.

ciao!
maurizio


p.s. Ben, if you need more tech infos on your trailer, I do suggest to leave your question in a dedicated topic, as this one should be left available for database process only! 8)
