A sagging body (the CAR, not the driver) question added to the  Message board

I changed the main homepage section reference numbers to yellow squares.


 I had seen that a number of people were using the search feature  for "Menu item 11" or some other number. Now I can direct people, for example to look for the section with yellow square  #11 on the main page. I hope that makes it less confusing. These reference numbers on the home page just used to be in the margin, so when I would say "see homepage menu item #11 for the photo album" it was not clear.

Today I changed the names of the folders in the Album. The use of the # sign was causing problems with the internet. Now, instead of car folder #-201-300 for VINs in that range, the folder is called VIN--201-300.  Any links that I missed will not work with the album, although most of the links are on the owners page and they have been changed to match the new system. (This is why I always used to have to use the camera picture to link to the album.  Word links just didn't work with the old naming system. 4/18/08
Added a little bit about the RED wiring throughout Replicars, with some pics of the chaos behind the dashboard. 4/16/08
While you should not notice a change, I changed the file name of the f - o - r - m  used to submit to the message board. It works the same, but the name of the web page may have been responsible for the TONS of spam nonsense I get every day. It all works the same, only automated spies will not find the name that appears above among my files - same item, different name. I only post this info at all in case I missed a link to that item on the site somewhere. 4/14/08
Where can one get a LUGGAGE RACK? asked on the Message board 4/12/08
Arizona Phaeton # 1296 spotted on eBay. Lots of nice pics in this listing. 4/11/08

Another mailing went out to the mailing list people. If you missed it, see it HERE.  Upcoming car show on the Message board and parts for sale (homepage, menu item # 17)

In 2002 I posted the restoration project of car 144. I named the files with an odd system, and today, finally, I corrected the file naming on the website. This makes no change to the viewers, but it bothered me like gum stuck on my shoe. Whatever year your car, look at Fred Johnson's great restoration project on Car 144 for inspiration.

Has anyone moved their battery in a later Replicar? see the Message board
Also some 1978 steering rack info added here.

Note: I am about 3/4 of the way through the comprehensive index as I fill in the technical chart . After that, I will start going through every other page on the website to find technical info to add to the right place on the chart.

this art goes with the ABOVE story.

Yet another "repeat-donator" to the Annex. Thank you, James, and, once more, your name is added to the Hall of Fame.

OK, in the "not really essential" category - two different concept pics of what  a Glassic Woodie, or Woody might look like. Who will be the first to actually build one?
Added Florida Phaeton # 108 to owners list. Spotted on eBay
Missouri Phaeton Car 197  (with the rare 4-wheel drive) is for sale and has been added to the Annex PREMIER GALLERY 4/3/08
Another "multiple-donator" to the Annex website. Thank you, Tom, and, again, your name appears in the Hall of Fame.
People like Tom make this site available without dues, or membership, or passwords. EVERYONE should thank him!
Nevada Phaeton # 742 is on eBay as a FOR SALE car. 3/31/08
OOPS -- in an effort to curb the dozens of daily spam mails that I get where a spam program fills out out things like the OWNERS FORM and the MESSAGE BOARD FORM - I accidentally blocked my own server that forwards those forms to me. THAT is why I suddenly got NO spam or valid replies in the last two days or so. (I fixed it today)


First new car to be registered on the owners list in quite a while is car #1304, a "For Sale" Phaeton in SWITZERLAND !
Added some pics of yellow Phaeton # 141 MORE INFO
Added more pics to the album of V-8 swap car # 189 MORE INFO
New part for sale AD - see main Annex page, menu item # 17. 3/27/08
Added a "search this page" box at the top of the  technical chart -- I was finding it slow to find the item I was looking for, in spite of the new organization of the data.
Note: If you don't find a word, let me know. For example, I tried "Air Conditioner" and it didn't find it since the title had been "Air CONDITIONING" -- I fixed that one.
Did 'ya ever have one of THOSE days? I got some more info on rear ends, from the owner of car # 1148, and thought I would add some info. All I did was add confusion since my rear end tag does not seem to match the codes.

Then I found out that my new tire size was NOT what I had reported, but is actually smaller in diameter than the original. The wider tires do improve traction, but the smaller diameter will not help gas mileage AT ALL.

Added some info about rear end gear ratios and the AOD transmission swap 3/23/08
Several items: car #189 fancy valve covers, some pics of "built" engine in #1290, an update on car u004 (which has a custom top) - Car u004 has several pictures, and I fixed the index some so that it is easier to find.
Added another viewer idea on how to get those hood side panels off and on more easily.

Note: As I work on the technical chart, I am finding all sorts of very sloppy housekeeping and am trying to fix some of it along the way.  For example, when adding pics of car u004 and its unusual top, I noticed that car 914 (the Roadster with a sunroof) was not even on the page of modified tops.

Message board -more additions. Updates on car #189 tach added, and #1290 u-joint failing and upgrades car #913 has been getting. 3/08/08
The migration begins to the new TECHNICAL SECTION chart. This is an attempt to organize the mish-mash of info that we have accumulated over the years. It will take MONTHS to move everything onto this chart page. Comments, errors in links, etc. please email me: GlassicAnnex@aol.com

Added "Technical Section" to the quick links - right hand side at the top of the home page. Turned down and shortened the aoogah sound on the home page.

More Message board questions and replies added. Also on the message board, some bold fiberglass changes being made. 3/4/08
More Message board taillight questions and searches - and a power brake question. Added some pics of Car 1290  interior with seats and carpet out.

Car 223, a 1967 Phaeton in Michigan, is FOR SALE - see the owners list.  Added some details to car 1288 and how it ended up in Alaska.

I am starting to try to organize the TECHNICAL data so that it is not such a jumble -- look at this early DRAFT of a possible organizational structure for the data.  Comments/ suggestions are welcome.

I moved the QUICK LINKS button to the right panel at the top of the screen on the Annex homepage. This is for regular viewers who want to jump right to some pages.

 Message board item added - parts for sale and other mods to car 1148.
Sent out a mailing about Roadsters for sale, a reunion update and the website fiasco. If you missed it, a copy is HERE 1/29/08
The yellow background on the log is no longer necessary. I believe that all of the website has been restored as of 6:30 am EXCEPT the photo album. My internet provider has referred the job ticket and it is just a matter of waiting our turn to have it put back. -- If anything OTHER than the photo album doesn't work, please email me -- GlassicAnnex@aol.com 1/29/08
Much of the content has been restored - but I added an "oops" page where the Album should be since it may be a while before it can be restored. 1/28/08
update on file restoration: The album is GONE for the time being. Those files (I have copies of the pictures, not the album setup) were only on the provider's service, not on my computer too. I will ask THEM to restore them, but it won't happen for a few days as they try to fix many other complaints.

My Annex folder consists of about 3500 files that need to go back onto the site. THAT'S why it will take a while.


CHAOS! -- at about 3 am. Sunday, my internet provider accidentally wiped out about 150 entire accounts - including the Annex. They restored the account, but did not restore any files in a timely manner so I am doing it myself. It will be some time before everything is working right, however, so bear with me.

Mon. 4pm. I re-loaded the entire photo album, and when I looked, it was not there. Meanwhile I have loaded some files, but many things won't work right or be complete for some time.

Car 514, a Texas Roadster is for sale. This is a rare stick shift V-8. Info on the Car Tales page.

Added hundreds of more pics to the new album. Eliminated the icon that said "I have more pics on file." I uploaded those pics to the album.  Still many more to come.

I plan to add at least "Roadster" or "Phaeton" below the car number of folders for individual cars.

Scrapbook 5 has disappeared! The contents of that book have been moved to the  Annex New Album.  Some folders have only one or two pics in them, but more will be coming.

I am not adding captions to ALL pics like I planned. Only when something is unusual. The SEARCH function in the new album will only have items that are "different". Searching "top" will only find custom or odd tops, for example

I think I found a good picture album program! Have a look at it and send comments, problems, suggestions to GlassicAnnex@aol.com
For now, I am starting to move pics from Scrapbook 5 to this new album.  Note, the little folders look different if there ARE any pictures in them.   Annex New Album

My thought is to move all pics there except event pics and restoration project pages.  Suggestions welcome.
