The Annexmaster loves some of the odd coincidences
that have happened from time to time. Like the time that TWO
cars were registered by owners in England in the same week -
different parts of the country. In that spirit, in May
2015, I got a nice email (after receiving a donation for the
site) When I got ready to post it, I was shocked that I
had already received a note from the same owner this month --
only it wasn't the same person -- look at the highlighted car
Just wanted to say thanks for maintaining the website as a
great resource of information about our cars; not only
historical, but ongoing as all of us run into issues and make
changes. All of these cars have a story, and I find your
website an invaluable resource for learning about how these
cars came to be. Let's just say that the website has proven to
be more reliable than the previous owner I purchased it
(the car) from.
AND, I really appreciate that the website is free of
advertising! Those pop-up and side-bar advertisements are

My name is Bill, and I
live in Northwest Indiana. Last year I bought a Glassic
(#1047) a 1977 Replicar
from Terry and Cindy Eaglin of Champaign IL They had the car
listed on the Annex website and that's how I found the car. I
have been browsing your site ever since. It has been a great
help in understanding just what a jewel I now own. There are a
lot of things I want to do to the car, and a few things I want
to replace, so I will be asking a lot of questions.
I would like to make a
donation to help keep this site up and running. I can't
imagine trying to keep my Glassic up and running without it.
Thanks for taking the initiative, so please find XXX cash
The note below was received December, 2014 along
with a second financial donation to the site.
The donation was great, the words of support - priceless!
Your website has been
invaluable, both in finding my "Glassic" Replicar (10 years
and maintaining it through the years...
So I have enclosed another donation for your website.
Thanks again, Rich

Thank you for sending it!
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
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!

"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.
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
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!

|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!

The purpose of the Annex site is SHARING information.
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
want shared, I will be glad to remove it as soon as
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.
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
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.
