Phaeton #426 - in Southern Germany - an ad spotted from a dealer. Photos
and a link to the ad are on owners list page 1
I have tried to fix the message board forums to make it a bit easier to post things. Many messages ended up in the "how to use this board" category. That particular category no longer allows messages to be posted - you have to use one of the other categories, such as buy-sell, or technical issues, or General.
I may also have to make a video on how to post. Much of the problem with this particular board is in allowing you to post without having to create yet another account and password - but also preventing junk spam emails.

for a while now. See owners list

this March. Yikes. Got back just in time to upgrade the Hall of Fame!

An event report for the 2020 Glassic reunion has been posted, along with
some pictures. See Reunion.
I will be away from my "big boy" computer for most of March, so do not look for updates to the site. Some day I will learn to make website changes on my "device" (phone)

SPAM EMAILS BEING SENT OUT BY SOMEONE
- A couple of fans have reported receiving emails with the subject "To
GlassicAnnex Members Only" - with a generic message about latest
info - and an attachment PDF file.
It is NOT from me, and do NOT open the attachment. I have not opened it, but, whatever it is, it is not real. Geeze! The email addresses may have been grabbed from the message board, or from the owners lists. I have not sent out email notices in well over 5 years, and have no plans to do so in the future.

FABIAN, (see yesterday's LOG entry below) is the ultimate Annex
fan. He shared info about his first and second Glassics, shared
great pictures of his car, and has further helped to "Turn Me
Loose" by donating funds to help with the website's outside
costs. This PayPal donation puts the website on the plus side of
zero for the first time in a while.
The status of break-even is a huge achievement thanks to the many contributors over the years. This is Fabian's second donation, moving him to the hallowed Golden Stars section of the Hall of Fame

incorrect use of "Phaeton".

WISCONSIN - Glassics gathering on June 4, 2017 (owners and fans
with, or without their cars). The last few years, Glassics have
gathered during the Sharon WI "Model A Day".
http://www.historicdowntownsharon.com/model-a-day.html Stacey, car 341, has coordinated Glassic participation. For questions, or more info, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
|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|

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.
In an on-going series of coincidences - two items came in this weekend-
both pertaining to ROADSTERS.
Glassic Texas Roadster #1208 has some parts for sale - which I posted on behalf of the owner on the message board - on the left of the main Annex webpage.
Replicars Roadster # 1048 has a new Canada owner. See owners list page 3
I received a cash donation in the US mail from Bill Neuenfeld, car 1047
- a Replicar. We should all thank him for his support. Not only
has his name been added to the
esteemed Hall of
Fame. , but this is not his first donation, so he has moved up to
the Spinning Star VIP section! Thank you for helping out with the
finances, AND for your nice comments!
Donations of money are always welcome, but ALSO, your sharing of pictures and information are also valuable contributions.

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.
|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.
