LOG of recent website additions & changes (most recent at the top)
Thanks to Ken Behrendt for his PayPal donation to the website - You can
see some nice pics of his Roadster on owners list two, and his name in
the Hall of
Added CA car 395 to owners list pg. 1 - Lots of pictures from the already sold listing and even a video of the car.
Also added Car u051 to the list of cars with unknown VINs. This Tennessee car has a state issued VIN that does not seem to conceal the original number within it. -- you need to scroll down to the red cars to find it, and maybe spot another car that you may know in the group.
|Car 162, see the entry below this one, new owner info posted on owners list pg. 1||5/18/15|
|I posted a report of day one of a giant Oregon to Florida trek by new owner David in car 162. I hope we get further details of this adventure. Spoiler alert: he arrived safely in Florida!||5/14/15|
Virginia Phaeton #1254 (the Annexmaster's once-owned car) has been
spotted FOR SALE on eBay Link is on
TN Phaeton # 218 (An Abercrombie & Finch car) also spotted on eBay. Link is on owners list pg. 1
Several interesting things pertaining to Florida Phaeton # 333.
The owner Tom, sent a bunch of nice quality pics of his car -- because he LOST all his old ones when his computer crashed. So back up your pictures!
The ones Tom sent are already in three places of mine and will be backed up again overnight.
If Tom had shared his old pics with the Annex, THAT would have been a good backup place.
His new pictures, however, and his restoration work are very nice. Starting on owners list pg. 1 - clicking the photo will show you all his pictures, and clicking on the notepad with his car entry will display his list of many modifications.
Tom already had a spot in the Hall of Fame, but another PayPal donation to the site moves him into gold star status! Thank you for your TRIPLE share: money, great photos, and free advice (backup your stuff!).
A fan sent a part number for the Power Steering filter for Replicars. I added that info to this old article.
I received a nice letter and donation in the US mail. Bill has a new (to
him) Glassic and a spot in the Hall of
Fame. His letter is also reproduced on that "about" page.
Thanks to him and also to everyone over the years who have shared their
I picked up two old Cadillac trunk solenoids at a yard sale ($5 for both) and will try to hook up a "popper" type button on the inside of the doors. Glassics, unlike the newer Replicars, have no door handles on the inside.
This eBay item was sent by a viewer
REPRODUCTION MIRRORS FOR 1928 TIRE MOUNT DRESS By the time you see
this, the listing will be expired, but hopefully will be renewed. While
not an original Glassic item, it may be a look you would like. See them
on car 1488 on owners list page3, and note that the parts need some
And here is my project to re-locate the luggage rack (VIN
689) further back, so the trunk would fit with it in the up
|Phaeton # 141 sent along some pictures of a luggage rack he got from Roadster 541 -- it sure adds a lot to the rear end look of the car. Photos on this link See the message board forums to see what his brother is up to on his "big adventure"||4/17/15|
Florida Roadster # 1119 - is FOR SALE -and
the owner also is a Gold Star member of the Hall of
Fame (she has supported the website more than once with
donations!) Info about this car can be seen on
Added pictures of a highly customized Phaeton at the top of the Unknown VINs car page. Car u-50. - its the top one on the page.
GLASSIC GATHERING ?? -- check the
message board forum on this page (to your left of this log) for a JUNE
gathering in Wisconsin. Glassic get-togethers can be a total blast!
I have been working on the pictures on the owners lists and adding a few thumbnails. I also found out that the Cloud album is different on the web and on my computer. No folder previews. I will keep working on better solutions to picture references on the site.
Happy Easter! I am back on-line, and have two nice engine views of car
514, a before, and an after. Nice. Start on owners list
page 2 - the new pics are the first two on the main page for that
Rex, the owner of car 0 -- that was the very first prototype of the Glassic, before they had VINs assigned, -- Rex has the honor of owning THAT car, and also now has the honor of being in the Hall of Fame for his PayPal donation to the website. Many thanks, Rex!
Oregon Roadster # 547 - is FOR SALE
info on Craigs
List and also on owners list
Next week, the Annexmaster will be mostly without computer access, so No April Fools gag from me this year.
|Florida Phaeton # 1488 has a new NJ owner and some 2015 pictures also. See owners list page 3||3/23/15|
|I continue moving some pictures around, and trying, not very successfully, to organize materials better. Here are some pics of my original car, # 1254 that I grouped together. www.glassicannex.org/1254/1254.htm The under-car pictures took me a day to find, and I KNEW that they were somewhere on the website, so the task is far from finished.||3/13/15|
|http://glassicannex.org/carpictures.htm -- this is a little "junk drawer" page I made from folders I found when transferring files to the new hosting account. They are folders within Glassic Annex, and in each case there is also a link to the actual page it goes to. - Just a place to browse some pictures.||3/11/15|
|As of early morning today, the Annex should be fully operational - if you find an error or missing files, please email GlassicAnnex@aol.com and let me know. - It is with the same hosting company as before, just no longer a sub-website of my wife's writer's account.||3/7/15|
|AHA - I am in the process of trying to separate this site from my wife's account (I was getting her to pay the fee) - and have run into an error message, so the transition may NOT be invisible after all.-- Technology!||3/6/15|
|New Tampa owner posted for Phaeton # 325, including a new photo with a nice wheel treatment (left hand picture). See owners list pg. 1||3/4/15|
PA Phaeton # 109 - (see two entries below in this log) is NOT FOR SALE.
In a rare turn of events, the owner's wife vetoed the idea.
Car 914, which you can find on owners list page 2, is a Roadster with a lot of custom features. I found some old pics (poorer quality) that I added as a sub folder on the page of pictures - they include a tonneau cover - that I may or may not have posted elsewhere.
|I was cleaning out some very old picture folders on my computer and found some car pics that I will add soon, but also found the item below. I had the pictures and a hidden piece of text about it, but had apparently never posted the pictures. This idea is GREAT for Glassic owners - it is a foot rest for next to your dimmer switch. - a Model A accessory that is very handy.||3/2/15|
|Pennsylvania Phaeton # 109 sent updated contact info and his car is FOR SALE - see owners list pg. 1||2/26/15|
|Added a solution to needing a wheel jack if you don't have one, and where it is if you DO have one. I have no ROADSTER info yet, so please share.||2/24/15|
|New Connecticut owner posted for Phaeton #746/ Info on owners list page 2||2/17/15|
|I added a helpful picture about removing the back seat in a Gen 1 Phaeton to the seat page, and added another and different frame marking on a Replicar to the VIN identification page (at the bottom)||2/12/15|
|I have added about 1/3 of the links to sub-folders of particular cars - I came across car 914, a Roadster that has lots of custom features. I am not sure that I even HAD a link to this page, so I included it, and here it is again, because lots of work had been done on this car. CAR 914 PAGE||2/11/15|
Previously in Oklahoma, Roadster # 1097 (a 1974) -- same owner now in
Texas See owners list
page 2 for updated info.
Photos now finished being assigned, sort of. Still to do, make links to sub-directories for a few cars - the program I wrote is so simple that it does not find subdirectories by itself.
|All owners lists have most pictures in them now. There are three things you might see (if there are pictures to be found) one is a photo that can be clicked to get to the cars picture page, one is BOTH a picture and a camera icon -- on those, only the icon works until I finish the coding, then the picture will be the link. Others are ONLY the camera icon. In those cases, a car photo is on a mixed page of cars - or the car has its own web page.||2/9/15|
Photo and description added of a
replacement bracket for rear seat-back of a Gen 1 (International
Continuing to add pics to the owners list - probably about 25 per day or so until done. When my simple picture viewer is done being set up, I can again experiment with "albums", since the pictures are still all on the Internet.
|Send email to GlassicAnnex@aol.com with the car numbers of cars where the search and replace did not work right to show the pics for a particular car. -- thanks.||2/7/15|
|The photo album is gone! individual car pics can be reached through the owners list camera icons - I will replace that camera with a clickable sample pic in each owners entry so you can see more than one car at a time on the same page.||2/7/15|
|Received a nice donation by check from Wayne, car 141. Not only does he earn immortality in the Hall of Fame but he may earn some other award as he connected his brother with a Glassic to buy- which will be DRIVEN home from Oregon to Florida next month. Double WOW. Thanks, Wayne!||2/5/15|
California Phaeton # 761 showed up on eBay. See
Lots of pics of this car, but AGAIN, the album broke bad, so the camera icons on the owners list for this car are for "the cloud" and my own mini-gallery setup. Time to look for a new way to display our pictures.
Works in progress and coming soon: Removing the rear seat, and a cool
display prop for car hood at a show (Picture is
already posted, and waiting for more description)
Also, on the LINKS page SearchTempest, a way to search multiple cities at the same time for Craigs List ads.
|Added WV Phaeton # 782 owner info and a picture to owners list page 2||1/24/15|
Once again I re-installed the album and with the counters again all
reset to zero, it seems to be working. I will continue to look for a
more reliable photo album program.
I also removed the 2013 and 2014 log entries. They can be found in a link at the bottom of this log page.
|Jimmy, car 1178, is the latest honoree into the Hall of Fame for his cash donation in support of the website. Thank you Jimmy! At the same time, the photo album has again broken down and shows only an error message. I am trying to see if the service provider will install a backup of the data. This album is great, but it fails on a regular basis so its time is limited -- too many technical difficulties.||1/22/15|
|I re-installed the photo album from scratch, using the same pictures. AGAIN all viewing counters reset to zer0 and there are some odd things in the layout, but at least you can find the pictures - as far as I can tell.||1/15/15|
New FL owner for Phaeton # 141 on owners list pg. 1
Limited info received from new owner of Roadster #539 - along with one nice picture. See owners list page 2
AND, I noticed that the Album is again showing an error message. I will work on it later.
I adjusted the numbering on car 1502 and 1502-2 to reflect the latest
and best info I have. Car 1502-2 used to be car 1502, but the VIN did
not match the features of the car and the VIN TAG was not original. Then
another 1502 showed up which also has a not-real vin tag, but it
is more likely to be correct. Both of these cars are highly customized,
nice cars and worth a look. See owners list
Colorado car 1321 was sold and limited info was posted about the new Alabama owner.
Here, just for fun, is the very
first Annex log entry in 2001!
Began the webpage after purchasing my Glassic
