GRILL SHELL -- RADIATOR SHELL - anyone who has successfully changed out his Glassic plastic grill shell - please contact glassicannex@aol.com  - owners are still in search of a good, workable, economical fix for the aging shells on our cars. Parts of this quest are already posted on http://GlassicAnnex.org/grill-shell.htm 9/28/17

New owner info added for Louisiana Replicar #1011. INCLUDES NEW PICTURES.   See owners list page 3 -- 9/25/17
On the page Compare.htm I added a reference to the word PHANTOM - which is likely a mistake. It is not a body style of Glassics - putting that word on a webpage will help searchers find the incorrect use of "Phaeton".

I also added owners page 1, 2 and 3 links on the main  menu bar - just a shortcut for people who know which page they want.

Car # 167 - posted in yesterday's LOG, below,  has some pictures added today, and a video clip. On my computer, the video played rather large - but when I got it, it was smaller and looked better. If you can play it back in a smaller sized window it will be clearer. 4/22/17
NY Phaeton # 167 is FOR SALE See owners list page 1
CAUTION - Even before this car was posted as for sale, the owner got a scam email  offering to buy the car, sight unseen, they would send extra money by check, which the seller was to cash and give part to the "shipping company".  This is the second such "deal" reported by Glassic owners.  The checks end up bouncing, and the seller is stuck for the cash given out.
4/21/17

California unknown VIN Glassic BODY for sale. Spotted by David, our Glassic whisperer, this car body, near Los Angeles, is on Craigs List.

The ALERT, two entries below, The Glassic owner got an email explaining how he would be sent a check, which included extra to be paid in cash to the transport person, and more extra "for his trouble". The time allowed for the check to "clear" was quite short. Pretty clear that this is a scam attempt.

Next week I will lose access to making changes on this website for a couple of weeks.

2/18/17
FL Phaeton # 1100 (a 1977 Replicar) is listed as  FOR SALE See owners list page 3 2/16/17
ALERT - a Glassic owner with limited info (and no pics) on the owners list got an email in response to his ad for his car for sale. (Not clear whether the email was for his "CAR", or his "Glassic") Either way, he had not placed any ad. The emailer asked for a price, then, without asking about the car, agreed and offered to send a company check.  This appears to be a scam, but it is not clear where the "buyer" got the email address (the Annex entry was 12 years old).

Let me know if you get any unsolicited buyers by email.
