[Zmagnette] ZMG Roster

Something just occurred to me - it's a question that can be answered in three ways as I see it: should we include chassis numbers in the roster?  We can say yes, no, or leave it up to the members.  Granted that NAMGAR does the registration aspects of ZMG, but on occasion it might be handy and/or fun to have our own casual records.  Maybe, for example, we'll discover we have some sequentially-related cars. More seriously, we may discover some subtle mid-model changes that affect technical concerns.  I'll propose that each of us can pursue this at his/her option, unless Mike finds a glitch in being able to include this in the data. It would be neat to be able to search our cars by chassis number. If the data is available in the roster, Mike need do nothing more, a member can simply import the data to an Excel file, allowing one to  organize and search by chassis number.  

This may be of little concern to most of us. If so, a modest response will tell the story and I'll let it go.  It's no big deal...

> Your first name, middle initial, and last name.
> Your SO's first & last name. (SO's don't get middle initials - no one has ever asked for that.)
> Address: Street, city, state/province, postal code, country.
> Up to two phone numbers
> Email address
> Special-interest cars (no 2010 Toyota Camrys, e.g.)
> Services provided
> Comments
> Cars are recorded like so: Year, Make, Model, Color, Status
> Colors are shown exterior w/ interior. For two-tone cars, it's exterior top/exterior bottom w/ interior. For an example, here's the entry for my car, an Old English White over Birch Grey Varitone with maroon interior:
> Year: 1958  Make: MG  Model: ZBV  Color: OEW/Birch grey w/ maroon  Status: Always a driver

> For Services, people tend to write about help they can provide. Entries range from "Tools, some parts, can come out & help, limited garage space." to "Cold beer on hand at all times."
> Comments can be anything else you'd care to add.
> And it's all optional. One person just has his name, email address, and the line for his Magnette. Other people include all their special-interest cars (we don't list motorcycles or "regular" cars) and some history.
> If you haven't already, send me your info now, while we're all still thinking of it, and I'll send out an updated roster next month.
> Let me know at mikesmuseum at yahoo.com if you have any questions. Please don't reply to the group and spam everyone.
> Thanks!
