Have uploaded a copy of the VIN CD to the internet for everyone.

It is in TIF format so you'll need an appropriate viewer to look through the pages.

If you want to search it you'll need to convert to OCR-PDF.

Me and Josh will be working on getting it all into an online database to make it searchable online.

The other files there are random stuff that came on the CD like placement of GTR badge etc.

Click here to go to the download area.

Can this be made a sticky?

I hope nobody minds...

But I have converted those files to .pdf format and made them searchable through the magic of OCR. I've also zipped them up into one archive so that it's a bit easier for people to grab them all in one hit.

You can get them from here (please note it's still uploading. Give it about 2 hours, ie about 6pm eastern daylight savings time before trying to grab it - I am only posting now as I'm about to head out for the family Christmas thing and won't be online again for a day or two).

Also please note due to the poor quality of the source documents the character recognition isn't perfect... but it's better than nothing... at least converting to .pdf might make it easier for those less computer savvy to open them as it's a more commonly used format.

Hope this was okay for me to mirror them like this, if there is any issues let me know and I'll pull 'em down.

Cheers and merry Christmas :)

hey mate, I tried converting to searchable formats, but as you said the source document is too poor..... it really ends up being quite useless, unless of course you have a better copy than I do...

Looks like a few of us have tried with the same average results.

I had a go with various applications and settings but on the scanned copy that I have there is too much 'noise' in the document to provide useful results.

The thing to do would be to enter them into an Access or equal database so you could search any feature you wanted, i.e. not limited to just the VIN as a search. I'll see how I go during the holidays.

I have downloaded it but bugger my day, I cannot workout how to find my car.

 

The "PSN" number, is that marked on the tags anywhere, in other words is the "PSN" number an Holden internal number or am I missing something....?

So...... the six numbers on the skinny tag is the PSN number.....?

 

If the vehicle is an NZ car, I gather it will still show up on there....?

Have the letter from Holdens with all VIN engine number and build date but can not find on the VIn disc.

Is this disc complete??

 

Assume build date on the Holden letter should be the same as on the List from the VIN disc
