Craig at wazcars has been busy updating his registry.
Quite a few more chassis numbers on there now and I managed to get photos of HS30 00060. What is becoming clear to me is that the early cars seem to have been painted all sorts of colours, unlike say HS30 00149, HS30 00150 and HS30 00151 which were all painted the same shade 920 Gold. Earlier cars seem to change colours for each car produced.
Perhaps giving more weight to the idea that they were demo cars and therefore were painted a spectrum of colours? Before Nissan switched to a more linear way of painting cars.
By the way 1 thing I've always wondered is if there is a way to dig out eBay auctions from their archives.
The link above suggests it's only possible for 3 months then you have to manually request information. We often have item IDs but I can no longer view the old auction, this would be incredibly useful if we could get access to old listings.
Anyone had experience requesting this information from eBay?
