Registered FD #'s by state.

I figured this deserves its own thread instead of being in the "donation" thread.

Here are the numbers as of 10/01/05

https://www.rx7club.com/attachment.p...hmentid=172776

Hopefully we'll have many more studies done like this in the future.

Interesting info. I thought those numbers were high also. My friend and I were recently debating on which car was more rare between the FD and the MK4. This would not help my position on the subject haha.

People don't register rotting cars. If a car is registered, it is safe to assume that it is drivable - otherwise why would the owner pay the money register it? In CA at least, registering a car for a year costs 1% or so of its current value. Most states have some registration fees.

Only way to solve that debate is to get someone on the supra forum to do just what we've done here.

It could have been registered many of years ago and now is sitting somewhere with a blown engine just rotting away. Is this not possilbe? Most states don't pay a yearly fee. It is just a flat fee when you buy the car. Some crap head could have bought the car, registered it, blown up the engine or crashed it and now it's in the back of the barn rusting away.

Its registration would have expired - typically after 1-2 years.

If registrations did not expire, this entire exercise would have been pointless.

^ I thought it was every 4 year? Maybe not. O well, I could imagine that a lot of FD's cold be lost in 4 years.

Can't believe that Virginia has the 4th highest amount. Though I do see 3 or 4 at my Richmond car meet each week

It's no surprise that CA has the highest number of registered FDs.

this number sounds high to me too, although i guess 5000 down isnt a small number either.

Wasent the number left registered a few years back much lower?

And anyone who donated I think I speak for everyone when I say thank you. I would have donated but I guess I missed the thread this time around. Next time ill put in my fair share for sure.

The number mentioned a few years back was like 3,300, and thats all it was...just a rounded off number. There were no real sources for it, or any kind of breakdown. The only source behind it was that someone said that Cam at Pettit told them. I have full confidence that we have purchased accurate information.

Thanks for all the work Matt and the donations everyone.

I'm a bit surprised by how many 95s are still around...and how many are here in Cali. Most states don't even have one registered.
