1966 Registry has 1965 Grid Code rather than 1966.
« on: November 25, 2019, 12:00:37 AM »
I was researching a car tonight and when trying to decode the the letters in the grid code in the new 1966 registry I noticed that some of them didn't make sense. I then went back to an old registry and sure enough, the new 1966 registry uses the 1965 grid code.  Is my copy an anomaly or did all the registries get printed wrong?

Thanks guys. I hadnít seen the other post that earlier raised the issue. Hopefully, there will be resolution but until then I guess Iíll just cross reference my old registry.

In the law where two statutes seemingly conflict, the court will attempt to "harmonize" them by reading the statutes together to figure out the intent of the legislature. Looks like in the Registry instance, reference to an older version will be necessary as the solution.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

In the interim, why not post it here on the Forum so that we can refer to it or print out a copy?

+1

A printable version provided on this site would be nice. First, it would be an immediate fix. Second, I could simply print it out and insert it into my Registry. I'm going to have a problem cutting out the last page of the annual to get something to insert into my copy of the Registry.
