Looks wonderful! This might be a bit too esoteric but I recall reading about the '50s-era Packards which have the door VIN tag and a firewall tag that may or many not exactly match. Maybe a field for this secondary tag or a checkbox to say if it matches? Just a thought. (For my two 1954, they match.)

Well that the 54-56 had a door jam stainless tag with the VN. No patent plate. Also there was the Briggs Body Number on the firewall. All that is covered in the intro text in the decode.

I added another option to the Registry. It's an "Added for Info only, never was Owner" checkbox. Which can be used to enter info about a car that perhaps you didn't own, but you have info/paperwork on. I added three cars with ( 1199-342, 5452-2944 & 5582-2104 ) which I have the Owners Service Card that I received through various donations of literature over the years. This option should be used in conjunction with the Status field. If you don't know what happened to the car, then choose Unknown. Otherwise, select the appropriate Status. This could include Scraped for example. That at least lets people know what happened to a car if they ever come searching for it. This paperwork I have had the purchaser's name, dealership, and delivery date, as well as the engine serial. So all of that has been recorded. If someone were to ever put any of those VNs into the Decoder it should show them that info.

So if you have any info on other Packards, I encourage you to enter the details into the Registry so that information can be saved for the record.

Also, checking that option will not show you are the Owner of that vehicle. It's just to denote in the system that it was added for information context only.

On another note, I have restored the ability to add Rich Text back to the Vehicle history box in the Registry. It now uses the same editor as the forum does.

Thanks!
