I figured out a way to get the last 82 grandstyle VINs. I should have them all in a few days. Watch for an update here soon.

I won't get the "grandstyle numbers" from the dash this way, but that is OK. We'll still have to spot those dash plaques the old fashioned way.

I now have 194 of the 200 grandstyle VINs identified. I should get the last six tomorrow! I will post an updated list here, with locations, once I am done.

Make that 199 of the 200 grandstyles "found"! Now, finding the last of them may be a needle in a haystack thing. If I don't find it soon, I'll just publish the list of 199.

Hi Mike. Angelas car is presently stored in Vernon BC. It is number 79. Convertible. Still under 39,000 KM and in perfect shape. She loves it.

Congratulations Mike.

200 / 200 shows an incredible effort on your part.

You probably won't take all the credit, but you no doubt deserve it.

A true 'labour of love' on your part, and not nearly as easy as the Canada1 Registry. :)

Thank you on behalf of a (hopefully) future Grandstyle owner (still looking for a good one).

edit..... I should also mention Diesel Dave's contribution to the project, as well as several others.

Thank you all.

Yes it was a group effort!

At one time I thought the only Canada 1 we would ever get the VIN of is yours (because it was the show car). But it became easier!

Hopefully all this info filters it's way into the online database so that it's easily accessible and correlated with the rest of the data!

Unfortunately this data didn't get synced into the database. I'll be bringing the online database back in line with all the new info we have (special edition cars, as well as datacards for every Canadian 450)

We know that twelve of the the 200 cars were in very serious collisions and written off. Best guess? 170 are still on the road.

No. 155 is for sale. The salesmen were excellent to deal with.

Took it for a drive last night, no unusual sounds but it does seem slower than I remember a diesel being. New/newer front brakes. A/C service done in 2011 may be the newer lines, etc. Too cold to test. The adjustable headlight motor was running constantly and the left/right mirror selector switch needs replaced. The leather needs cleaning, the car would benefit from a good interior detailing. Exterior panels look good. The struts for the rear glass need replaced. I forgot to check the functionality of the wipers or the rear sprayer.

If someone in Ontario is looking for a GS Coupe this may be the one for you.

Thanks to Bob Ricewasser in California, we now can correlate grandstyle number 161 to the VIN! List above has been adjusted.

We have their VINs but no way to correlate the grandstyle numbers to VIN....

The plot thickens. There is a car on eBay right now in illinois USA claiming to be grandstyle No. 124, but the VIN does not correspond with a grandstyle.....the VIN says it's a jack black passion with solid glass roof, but the photos show it's a grandstyle.

If it somehow is legit, there would be 201 grandstyles. I think it's a VIN switcheroo.

Hey Mike. As you know #79 has been in Vernon for awhile although it was registered in Alberta until last month. We have officially moved to BC now and it is registered in BC. It is now my daily driver as Angela is driving the ED. Still mint condition. Under 45,000 KM. Stock except for the brabus shifter and pedals. Since we bought our townhouse it only gets about 200 KM per month on it now. All the miles go on the ED. Anyway, don't know if your database reflects location or registration but is now a BC car as of May. Nobody can believe it is a 2006. Still has never been driven in winter.

Cheers
