that was the wrong thread hoop! This is the thread I started.MagnumsPurpleRT said:In 2001, just before DC closed the books I got all the 98, 99, and 00 production numbers (except that they kept denying the SY for 00)
http://members.cox.net/purple-rt/misc.html (part of my new site, just launched it this past week)
There is not too much verification on the 00 SY because Dodge wasnt supposed to be shooting the SY then. SY was supposed to be stopped in the 99 line because the paint contained too much lead, and the EPA was all over them for it. They were allowed to use up the remaining amount of paint they had in the system, but the untapped continers were not supposed to be used. So the million dollar question is...did they finish off shooting what they had, or did they never let the paint barrel run dry until they were out of it completely so as to not waste the rest of the paint and try to figure out what to do with it when done.
Anyway, by using the numbers that I have for the 2000's and adding in the 96 SY CC's they are now admitting to making that only leaves 2 regular cab SY for 2000, and as I can remember in 00 we had only found 9 of them on on the dakota R/T yahoo group.
Charles, can I use your numbers for the rest of the models and add them to my site...Im trying to track this as much as I can.
However, you are more than welcome to use the numbers on your site. I don't mind. 3/24 is coming!
