I was thinking if we can have a place to put the trim level of our cars automatically when we sign in, instead of having it in our signatures. I thought that would look more professional.

The difficulties lay in the limitations to the software. Plus it must be customizable if you change models

Jeff can phpBB handle this?

what about having a place in the profile to enter the vehicle VIN, and then automatically generate the year and trim level from that, and display it under the author name

Hmmm....

Actually, doing it might not be too difficult if I crib off of the Registry database.

THanx. I thought about like were our name is like on the top left hand corner and our optional avatar then the stars and rank, up under that would have our car trim level on there like my car is an SSE */C and the year of the car.

I cheated and did it in my location, anything new on this? Maybe we could track stuff then like how many members have Purple SLE'* from 93 with the last exhaust.
