I must take issue with you on this. I have never said that I do not 
collect and record this sort of information. The issue was that I don't 
see much value in publishing this on our UK WEB site when there is much 
more useful information to add when time and effort allows. As you know 
I most likely publish at this time more 100 register information than 
anybody else does.

I would like to bring your attention to a special exercise that went on 
recently. A regular contributor to this list had some old cockpit trim 
with body number and was keen to have it returned to its original car. I 
tracked down the owner in the States where I had an address but no email 
address. As a member of the AHCA I was able to look up an email address 
and contacted the current owner. I did not pass on the owner information 
but invited him to contact the enthusiast with the trim.

What happened - nothing. The current owner did not want the old trim 
because it was in a poor state.

 From this you can see that I do keep all records and do follow things up 
but at the same time I do not see this sort of information being more 
important than other Register information that I am working on.

Please believe me; no information is ignored or discarded.
