Hi Stephan and E-TYPErs,
As you asked publicly, here is my answer and some news & comments. First of all greetings from Portland/Astoria, Oregon; Phoenix/Tucson, Arizona; and L.A., California. Had a super trip! The E-TYPE (and
1. Met Thony Parkinson and his suberb E in Scottsdale, even had a drive :))))))))))))))) 2. Met George in Tucson, had a great party and introduced George to his VetteNet peer, Bob Kaneshige <email@example.com> 3. Visited a very special private collection of ALL the '57 passanger cars built in the USA, a place called Classic Heaven -- unbeliveble! 4. Visited the Pedersen (?) car museum in L.A., an interesting consept car show.

Good idea, Mike, but then the Excel sheet should be not too big.
Better try with several data first and see how it works.
Converting a XLS to HTML can result in a HUGE HTML file,
either by volume (KBs), and/or by the size which is to be viewed by
Too much scrolling sideways and up/down makes searching and reading
I tried it also (Hi Seppo & Pekka and then quit this job …
BTW: What about your data collection, Seppo ???
Belive it or not folks, I am making progress! I now have all the data entered and I have been playing with the model quite a bit. I feel that I would now be willing to make the collected E-TYPE data public for corrections and I would also be willing to publish the numbers from the S1 part of my model. These numbers estimate the seral numbers based on the date of manufacture and can also be used to estimate the build date if one of the original serial numbers are known. These numbers are a small part of a rather big Excel model (George has a print-out and could give a comment about the feasibility of making parts of it public) and I would like to know what is the preferred way of issuing the numbers. My own idea would be to generate just a textual list with the following items: 1. Month of manufacture 2. Chassis number 3. Engine number 4. Transmission number Of course the following combinations would have their own columns (for S1) and the numbers would represent the ESTIMATED first item of the month: OTS RHD FHC RHD 2+2 RHD OTS LHD FHC LHD 2+2 LHD You can probably see why table may be 9" wide ;-) Let me know how to proceed. Should I split the data to smaller pieces and if, how?
