The Bobsy Car Registry

The table below represents the best information we have at this time.  New and improved information is encouraged.  Please contact us via phone or email with any new information and we'll try to incorporate it into the body knowledge of these great cars.  Info on prior ownership is quite helpful.  See Home Page on how to contact us.


If you wish to directly contact any of these owners, please send your request to us and we'll forward your inquiry to the person if we have their contact information. 


Hints for interpreting the table:   

If the owner's name is in green, they've been confirmed as the current owner.

Entries where owner's name is in light yellow are old information from registry data in the late '90s, thus info  may well be out of date.


If in light blue, the car may be available for sale.  If no contact info is indicated in the listing, please contact r.alder@earthlink.net and your inquiry will be forwarded to the owner.


The ">" symbol is used to convey an ownership change. And, for example,  '94>  means that in '94 the car changed ownership between the individuals shown.

"Per Wehrheim" or "Per Don" are notes taken from prior mid-90s registry info and haven't been recently confirmed. 

If the "model" designation in any particular  registry listing is bold and underlined and in a different color (e.g.  looks like this  SR-3), it is a clickable link to a current pictures of that particular car. 


Please help us clarify the many unconfirmed car owners (i.e. those where owner's names are in light yellow background).  Thanks!


 Last Update:3/30/2017 All cars with known owners:50NOTE: Cars in light blue are for sale. If you have an interest and contact info isn’t provided, send an email to me at r.alder@earthlink.net and I’ll forward your interest to the owner.

(1) The early serial number system -- We’d first heard that, as an example, chassis # 76410 is chassis #7, 64 is 1964 year of manufacture, and 10 referring to the month of manufacture. However, that doesn’t work since there are no "14" months and there are several ending in "14". According to Duck Waddle’s notes dated 1/7/1988 he said Jerry Mong said it was Mo/Chassis#/Year. But that doesn’t work either because too many center characters are "64", So we’ve concluded that it must be MO/YR/chassis#. At least that way all those long early serial number render unique chassis numbers which are serially consistent with a month of production. Whew!
