Hello from Dillsburg, PA USA I hope I can participate even though I'm not from your little island down under.
I'm new here and recently aquired a few unwanted vehicles (at least here in the USA). I have 3 Renault R8s and 3 Simca 1000s. Since I'm in the R8 forum I'll stick to these for now.
Can anyone tell me what the numbers on the identification plates (oval and diamound shaped) mean and possible tell me what my numbers on my race car tell me? I would really like to know the year of my R8 since I don't have any paperwork for it. If there is a place to look this up please point me in the right direction, thanks!
R1132 (I've been told this means it's a regular R8 not a Gordini, but does it tell me engine size or what transmision I have?)
205 280 (what do these numbers tell me???)
R1132 (same as above I assume)
3457178 (what does this number tell me?)
Thanks and hope to lean and share as often as possible here.
