LOG of recent website additions & changes
A special thanks to Steve Schneider who sent a monetary donation to the
Annex by way of the US Mail. I hope all viewers of this site join me in
thanking people like Steve who allow me to post ANY info that might be
useful or enjoyable, without worrying about whether it will raise
provider fees to the next fee level. I still remember years ago
when I would limit pictures to no more than 5 per car, just to keep fees
down. Thanks Steve, and welcome to the Annex Hall of Fame
Connecticut Phaeton # 327 is now marked as for sale. Contact info is on the owners list pg. 1

problems. It is in the
I also added more identification info: PMS numbers scratched into the cowls of some Mid 70's Glassics. See what we know, and share YOUR car info with me at the above email address.

|California Phaeton # 1410 added to owners list page3||5/8/13|
Brian and Peggy Wiswell made a cash donation (by check and US mail) to
help support the website. Since this is not their first donation,
they have been awarded two spinning stars in the Hall of Fame
. While not everyone needs to donate cash, we should all appreciate
those who do help, since otherwise, this website would have about
1/10 as much content. Many thanks, Wiswells!
KING PINS -- in the V-8 Glassics up to about 1975, there have been more than a few problems reported with king pins - I posted the latest comment on the message board, and hope that others who have had this problem, or solved it, can share your knowledge on the message board. If you cannot find the message board, or the king pin topic, please email me at the address above and let me know. I think its easy to locate, but then, I know where to look!
Wisconsin Roadster # 351 is now listed as for sale

|Sacramento CA area Roadster # 1029 is for sale on eBay. This car has a pretty complete history (see owners list page 2) and one of the nicer wheel choices I have seen on our Glassics. This is not an eBay auction, but a sale car, so you can contact the owner to discuss the car.||3/17/13|
Washington Phaeton #1253 is for sale with a reduced price. See
details and pictures of the car in the Annex
Missouri Phaeton # 1121 is for sale at a lowered price. See owners list page3
I added some HORN minutia to the
technical page. This pertains to the switch under the dash that changes
between an aoogah and regular horn.
I hope you will send me feedback (email above) on whether YOUR car has this switch and what it operates - since my second horn is missing. (1973 Phaeton)
|Spotted TX Roadster # 541 on Craigs list ad. owners list page 2||2/22/13|
Texas Phaeton # 898 may soon be raffled off. Latest info can be

You know, every time I have a technical problem with the photo album, I look for alternative ways to display the pics, but so far, I have not found ANY other solutions that display that number of pics nearly as well.
|I wrote up my car 689 experience replacing the starter solenoid, with part source info and why I thought I needed to replace it. Starter solenoid replaced||2/20/13|
|I have been messing with the PHOTO ALBUM - since it had an error a week or two ago. Some of the cars were not showing up. I think I fixed it, but all the counters have reset to zero views. I will see if I can restore that part later on, but at least the cars are all there now. If you get an X where a picture is supposed to be, try your REFRESH button.||2/19/13|
FL Roadster # 339 spotted as for sale by a dealer. See
list pg. 1
Also, I noticed problems with the photo ALBUM again - I think I fixed it, but let me know by email (address above) if you cannot view it at all. It may be slow to load the first time you look at it.
Ignition COIL discussed. I had problems with both my 1978 and 1973 - caused by using the wrong type of coil.
|Former Georgia Roadster # 885 has popped up in Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands -- Owner info is not yet complete, but the car is in the Caribbean, not in Netherlands. Google it! owners list page 2||2/6/13|
|I completed my look at the fuse panel on my 1973 and logged which fuses went to what - also noting that nearly ALL were 30amp fuses, which is pretty likely NOT correct.||1/27/13|
Oregon Phaeton # 332 has a new owner on owners
list pg. 1
Replicar # 1067 spotted on eBay also on owners list page3
|There was a question on the message board about the fuse panel, and since nobody answered it yet, I thought I would do a little digging. Here is what I have added to the Tech page so far: fuse panel||1/23/13|
|Long-time Glassic family Bill Crozier, sent along some more pics of Florida Phaeton # 879 - that he spotted at a car show. The new shots are in the top row in the Album. - Thanks, Bill. Note the different back window, and wooden dashboard on this one.||1/21/13|
|Added a couple of nice pictures of Roadster #715 to the photo album. They are the ones with the least "views." I removed the New Year's greeting from the main page picture rotation. I will put it back in 11 months or so!||1/13/13|
Wow, its been a quiet couple of weeks on the Annex. Today I received TWO
great donations from Jim, the owner of car 1509, as of now the last
known Glassic made. First, he shared
some sale documents, which can
be found at the bottom of the Replicars literature page, and he
also included a check, gaining him a place in the Hall of Fame.
It is so nice when someone shares both his personal documents AND some
cash. I was able to scan those documents in a nice large size without
worry that it would use too much of my web space. Way to go,
(because of this literature, I was able to make another entry in the new car price section)

New year's resolution: to simplify the Annex website - much of the stuff on the site is not needed to get the info out there, and makes the site more vulnerable to virus infection. Also, there are obsolete pages that need cleaning up.
Today I changed the way one registers their car on the site (yellow
5 on the home page) Instead of a FORM, it is an email of sorts. This is part of the spam and virus protection efforts I am adding.
Here is a link to a folder from the Album that I copied to Microsoft's cloud storage. http://sdrv.ms/YgjKAs -- I am trying to see if this is a way to replace the buggy album. Feel free to send an email to the above address with any reactions. The link name, of course, is not helpful, so that is an issue.
Followup - so far, it appears that sorting picsby car number is an issue. When I tried more of the album it did not organize them, it just showed a huge mass of pics. I will also look into other services.
I removed over 270 bits of infected code from the website, and it
appears to be clean - for now. My web space tech service was no
help at all, other than to say that MAYBE the code in the Photo Album or
the form to register cars made site vulnerable.
I am exploring my options to keep this nuisance from happening again including putting all the pics on an outside photo album site.
|Some bad code has infected the Annex site, causing my virus software to block infections on some pages. This is a script that got injected into many pages, but I cannot yet tell if cleaning them off solves the problem, or if some other code is just putting this bug back into the pages. I am trying tech support, but at some point the site may have to shut down until this can be fixed.||12/16/12|
Posted a new HAWAII owner for Phaeton 954, doubling that state's
presence on the owners lists to 2 (different islands, however). See
And, the record book changes as Ohio Roadster # 1509 has checked in after recently being bought from the original owner, now making IT the last known production Glassic. See owners list page3
Janice Kloog, car 1119, has had her name MOVED in the Hall of Fame
- it turned out that she was a REPEAT supporter of the website and has
earned two gold stars. Those who use the site should be grateful
to people like Jancie - without donations like hers there would only be
a few pictures and articles -- I still remember, years ago, trying to
decide whether to limit each car to three pictures. Thank you
Janice and others!
If you last through all 5 of the rotating pictures on the homepage - I have added a sixth picture!
As promised in yesterday's LOG, the owner of car #1500 has provided some
help with problems and I finally got them posted. Here are his solutions
to two "issues"
Heater core: for the non-mechanics, the heater core is a little radiator with fins that sits in a box with a fan under the dash. Hot engine water goes through the core and the fan blows the resulting hot air into the car. They are prone to leaking with age. Here is a solution: heater core.
Grill shell inserts - here is a nice looking product at a reasonable price.
Virginia Phaeton #1500 - added a bunch of before and after pics,
including many of the engine compartment. They are in the
Album The before pics start with 1500-b4- and the after pics start
Stay tuned for a tech article on a replacement heater core for this car, and a source of grill mesh inserts.
It turned out that the donation mentioned in yesterday's log was not from Martin, but was kindly done by him on behalf of his girlfriend, Janice Kloog, the owner of car 1119 - so Janice is inducted into the Hall of Fame but Martin still gets a shout-out for helping with his PayPal account.
Also I posted a great picture of Janice's Florida Roadster 1119 in the Album It is the second car on the page, the white Roadster.
I am back today after over two weeks without my computer -- within
the next day or so I will be adding some pics and a new owner of a
Roadster, as well as a hall of fame award. I will also be careful clearing
the 100's of spams, to be sure that I don't accidentally erase a legit
Phaeton # 1500 sent some good before and after pictures as well as a couple of technical items (heater core, grill shell insert) I will post these soon.
Martin Victor (I do not see a Glassic registered in his name) is the newest proud member of our Hall of Fame for his PayPal donation to the website. Thank you, Martin.
Car 332, in California, was recently re-listed on eBay then removed - likely sold locally.
I got a form for a new owner of car 1148, but the return email address was a bit odd, so I am confirming it before posting the info.
|NOTICE - I will not have access to my computer for the next week to two weeks, so there will not be any updates to the website during that period. I will reply to emails and make site updates as soon as I get back on-line.||11/24/12|
|Connecticut Phaeton # 1303 added to owners list page3||11/22/12|
|Virginia Phaeton # 860 is now FOR SALE - see owners list page 2||11/20/12|
|California Roadster # 1029 (previously an unknown VIN car) added to owners list page 2 . The new owner also has a nice 1932 real Ford Roadster, a picture of which I added at the bottom of the page comparing real and replicas||11/19/12|
NOTICE - The Annex website, and a
couple of others that are under my wife's account were infiltrated with
some spamware - I found out by way of a note from Google that the sites
were tagged as "could cause harm to your computer" -- I have cleaned off
these tracking files, and the Annex has been cleared by Google.
As my internet provider and I try to figure out HOW these unauthorized changes were made to the Annex, the photo ALBUM is a possible suspect since I have given IT permission to make automatic changes -- The Album is a great program, but its days may be numbered if it proves to make the site vulnerable. More info on this to come.
|New Ohio owner for Phaeton # 110 - this car is on a Chevy S-10 chassis.- info on owners list pg. 1 -- also some new pics in the Album||11/14/12|
Washington Phaeton # 1253 - lowered price updated on
New Wisconsin owner for Roadster # 351 posted to owners list pg. 1
NOTE: Today I changed the system used by the search button on the Annex main page. I told them not to catalog the ALBUM since there were so many pages they were reviewing. I don't THINK it will affect search results, but it cut 90% out of their page analysis time.

a NJ Phaeton is on eBay - I was notified by an Annex fan since it was not listed as a Glassic because the seller did not know that was what it was. It has been added to the Annex as car u041 on the unknown VIN page since we don't know the original VIN.

very helpful and posted here.
Added oil and fuel filter part #'s for International engine cars to a page I have not used much lately, but one that has some parts info on it. Have you looked at the parts fit page yet?

Once again, the photo album appears to be messed up - showing nothing but date error messages. Tech support has been contacted, since I don't think it was anything that I did.

Georgia Roadster # 715 is on the road after a long "rest". New pic added
Florida Roadster # 309 has been added to the owners list page 1 and is FOR SALE (Unless this is a mistake in the listing, this seems to be the lowest Roadster VIN so far)
|Virginia Phaeton # 796 spotted on eBay by one of our loyal viewers (since "Glassic" does not appear in the listing -- oops) also on Owners list page 2||8/4/12|
The FORMS feature is working off and on, and tech support is, er,
"working on it".
The planned electric car, an Oregon Phaeton ,#932poss, is added to Owners list page 2 We hope the owner will share this project when he starts it.
NOTE: as of this
afternoon, the form to register your car is giving a "thank you" page,
but is NOT sending the info to me. I am looking into the problem.
So I do not yet have the info from the Oregon owner who plans to
convert his Glassic to ALL ELECTRIC. More soon, I hope.

UPDATE - by evening, the forms work, but are not yet completely fixed. Other issues have appeared as ones are fixed. The main page is now slow to load and respond - there may be on-going problems until all of the settings are re-established for the site.
|Added a picture of car 609 to the Album which seems to be back in working order now. This car may originally have had a different VIN since a prior owner makes reference to Abercrombie & Fitch, which would have been an older car. A lot of customizing has been done to this car - notice the longer hood and no door handles, etc.||6/7/12|
Look at the car for sale on the
message board on the left of this page. Don't you hate it when someone
buys a Glassic and then turns around and flips it? -- 39 years later!
Virginia Phaeton # 609 is also for sale and the updated info is HERE, and a picture will follow when I get the album fixed. (see entry above)
The Annex album is still messed up, and the internet provider and I are still trying. I am hopeful that by tomorrow it will be back on-line. If anything else does not work right, please email me at the above email.

On each of the 3 owners list pages, the top section has a box with the total count of "found cars" -- that page has always had a hidden chart and map with the car count by state.

I answered it, sort of, but would appreciate if someone would step up with the answer to his followup question. -- How do those springy pins work that hold the top to the windshield. Do they come out altogether - what keeps those pins from just falling out? Can anyone send a closeup picture of the pin if they DO come clean out? -- reminder: when a person ANSWERS a recent item on the message board, the answer does not show up as a NEW item, so there is no way of knowing that more has been added to a topic.
|Phaeton # 1499, a 1981, added to owners list 3 - Limited info from a question on the message board but a picture was added to the Album||3/22/12|
|New Nevada owner posted for Phaeton # 982 on owners list page 2 . I also finally posted the celebrity Phaeton owned by Steven Tyler, even though I have been unable to get the VIN. It is a 1977, so it is on owners list page3 between the 1976's and 1977's. It is an early 1977 since it still has the leaf springs on the front.||3/20/12|

Larger pics of the Chet Atkins record albums posted. The previous pics were small and blurry, so I bought both albums on eBay and took larger shots. (No donation money was used for these).

|WA Phaeton # 517 sent some nice paper photos in the mail, which I scanned and put in the Album. The quality problem is not with this pictures, but with my scanning skills.
