I've been doing attempts to get PR for the following site, for about 4 
months now:
http://www.allcarmodels.com/acm/index.html            - PR 4
http://www.allcarmodels.com/acm/index.html?id=XXXXXX  - PR 0 

I still have moments when the URL has a id=XXXXX (first time you get on the 
site the links have the id=XXXXX, lateron not anymore). Google has ranked 
the page so far ... Still a lot of work to do. 

But in the Google Toolbar Google is not ignoring the id=XXXXX part to show a 
PR (at least not in my bar).
