DONATIONS

It is important to say that cash donations are most welcomed, your contribution of information and experiences is even more welcome. There are other places to find money, but sharing your knowledge and your Glassic info is truly a unique donation.


The annual cash costs for this website are as follows:
GlassicAnnex.org domain name $15 - premium hosting fee $107
GlassicAnnex.com domain name $15, Replicars.org domain and ad free hosting $27
the Annex message board hosting $60 and, in Aug. 2013, added:
GlassicReplicars.com as a site for the photo album. That was $48 for the first
year, but I think that was a first year special rate.

Annual budget: near $300 per year

- Donation account balance as of 7/15/14: The balance remains in positive territory this year.
Thank you, members of the "Hall of Fame"  Donation funds are kept in a dedicated fund,
 and are used only for payments to the
 website hosting companies and message board provider.

The costs for this website are borne by the kind people in the Hall of Fame and the Annexmaster. The more content and viewers, the higher those costs get. If you would like to contribute, any donations received will be applied to the costs of the website only.

Don -

My father (Johnny Huelsbeck) just sold his Glassic #370 thanks to the
'for sale' line on your website.  Thanks so much for the service you
provide; you were so right.  The listing generated a great deal of
interest, and e-mails from as far away as Ireland and Hawaii.

I've left a small donation through Paypal.  I do hope your site
continues to prosper........it provides a unique and useful service.

Dad's looking up the paperwork with the buyer's name, etc.  Will forward
to you if found.

Best wishes for a happy new year!

Don, the Annexmaster
  The first entry in the Annex LOG appeared on June 25, 2001.

Began the webpage after purchasing my Glassic 6/25/01

"Annexmaster" is my made-up term combining the name of this website, the Glassic "Annex" and "webmaster" - a term for the person who oversees the technical stuff on a particular website.

Sometimes, when I interject a comment in someone else's article or story, I will add MY remarks in Purple - like my first Glassic' color (# 1254). - while my current car (# 689) is RED and BLUE, I will continue to use purple for my remarks.

I was a Tampa Bay resident, a former school Business Manager retired ( in 1997) early from the public school system in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC. I relocated to the suburbs North of San Diego, CA in Sept 2009. I am a computer hobbyist and amateur web publisher. I have great faith in the web's ability to help us share common interests for our mutual benefit. The Washington area IBM users group's motto was "Users helping users" -- a fitting theme for Glassic owners as well!


Don and his Glassic pose on the Gulf of Mexico

I have always had an interest in convertibles and cars that were easy to find in a parking lot. Over the years I have owned some odd cars including two "real" model A's and a '90 Mustang Convertible. For the last several years I have had a desire for the uniqueness of a Model A with more reliable running gear. At least 7 or 8 years ago I made an offer on what must have been a Glassic roadster, only to miss out by $1000 or so. I felt that THAT car had wheels that were more like the actual Model A, but am sure that it had a V-8 and auto trans. I remember the bumpy, unstable, FAST ride that I took, but not much else about the car.
In the Spring of 2001 I discovered the Phaeton model by Glassic and thought that it would be a more unusual model than the roadster. I began searching the web, and found a number of cars advertised. The search closed in on a car right here in the Tampa area, and I was attracted to it by the amount of work that had been done on it including a recent purple paint job (so the car will stand out among all of the other Glassics on the block) as well as a rebuilt engine (with receipts), a fresh interior with upgraded reclining buckets seats, and new/newish tires all around. There is still plenty to be done to it, however. Can you imagine, the car had NO aoogah horn on it at the time of purchase!

My car interests have been supported (no, TOLERATED) by my loving wife of 37 years who prefers anonymity on the road. (updated 7/2012 to 46 years of tolerance by my wife)

 

 

 

Privacy Policy

The purpose of the Annex site is SHARING information.
This site has a pretty loose privacy policy. First, I feel that Glassic owners or enthusiasts are NOT people who wish to hide in obscurity. Second, not much in our lives is private any more.

If you send information to the site, or if I find it in a public place (such as on a website, or in an ad, etc.) I will begin with the assumption that you don't mind it being shared. Should I post personal information about YOU that you do not want shared, I will be glad to remove it as soon as possible. 

Do not list a work phone, for instance, if you would not want to receive calls at work.
The more information posted about you and your car, the more likely that you can meet and exchange information with other Glassic owners.

Or rare occasion, I have been asked to remove factual info for the purpose of deceiving people who might view the website. In those cases, I have respectfully declined. One person had a car titled as a newer year car than it really was, and another wanted me to remove restoration pictures that a previous owner had submitted - possibly so that he could claim to have restored the car himself.


I will not sell your info to any vendor etc, although anyone who wants can easily find your data on the Annex, if it is there.

Financial Policy

I plan to continue to run the Annex as a freebie. As the website grows in content and viewership, I hope to continue to pay the costs from my own funds and through donations.

Thanks to the many people who have donated money, the site, after operating and growing for over 13 years, is STILL a free site to look at, without ads or pop-ups. And you don't need yet another user name and password to participate in the Annex experience.

In addition to GlassicAnnex.org, contributions pay for things like the domain name GlassicAnnex.COM,  and Replicars.org.  Those only serve to help people who don't know the actual website. Those domain names refer people to GlassicAnnex.org. Someone who finds and buys a Replicar (1976-1981) may not even know the name "Glassic" at first.

Questions or comments about these policies are welcome.
