    Free "Car Collector" iPhone Application - Provides useful info & specs by VIN or Yr/M

    This application is so cool I just had to start an independent thread.

    It's free this week, and this little iPhone App gave me more info using the 8 digit VIN than I was able to find in two hours searching the internet.

    The Application is called Car Collector.
    I found the application through the DecodeThis website - which BTW did deliver the most comprehensive returns using a 17 digit VIN, and was a very basic, simple and QUICK VIN search site.

    Car Collector does not decipher or break down the VIN, but it gives very detailed info from the number of vehicles produced to the original pricing to the specs and so on. I HIGHLY recommend this app.

    Cheers

    should note that. This app only decodes cars pre 1975.

    Yes, Thank You, that is correct...
    Please forgive my exuberance...
    Those of us stuck trying to get 1968 info which has been lost in a black hole twilight zone have few resources available tied to VINs.

    When I first read this post, I thought lightly of it.

    I spent quite a while looking around and the most I could come up with anywhere was at the cadillaclasalleclub.org, Where it boasts, (VIN) "Authenticate Your 1903 - 1970 Cadillac or LaSalle" then of course follows up with "We're sorry, 1968 record sheets are NOT available."

    Maybe the strike in 1968 had disgruntled workers sabotaging the records. Who knows. If anyone else finds a resource for 1968 VIN associated information, please do share

    Hi there! I'm the author of the app Car Collector (www.carcollectorapp.com), as well as the webmaster of www.decodethis.com, a modern and classic VIN decoder web site.

    I'm very thrilled you found the app useful. We're always looking for ways of improving it. Please feel free to contact us at contact@carcollectorapp.com with your suggestions or feedback.

    Currently we only extend to 1975. We have plans of adding data to fill in the missing hole up to 1980 as well as adding truck and foreign vehicles.

    Thanks again for the endorsement! I hope you don't mind if I quote it in the future.

    Regards,

    Richard Brown

    Hi mrholland,

    My coding skills unfortunately lie with Apple's iOS for mobile platforms. I'll note your request, and if I get a sufficient volume of queries I'll look into the expense of hiring an Android coder. My next planned platform is better support for the iPad.

    Thanks,

    Richard Brown

    The other day I was in Autozone and saw a car cover on sale... Wasn't sure of the car length, thought I'd have to go home and measure, then I remembered I had the app - sure enough, the data was in there. Thanx again Richard
