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
Thank you, Fabian, for the multiple ways you have helped support this sharing website!
I am just back from being "off the grid" and will be catching up the
next few days. What I missed will be posted below, under today's date.

Coast. See owners list
Fabian, in NJ, sent along some great pics of his new Roadster #539, and a large part of its history, as well as the history on his previous car, #719, which he sold to a person in GERMANY, who also just registered car 719.

|GRILL SHELL -- RADIATOR SHELL - anyone who has successfully changed out his Glassic plastic grill shell - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org - owners are still in search of a good, workable, economical fix for the aging shells on our cars.

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.

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|
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.
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.

Glassic whisperer, this car body, near Los Angeles, is
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.

where I had not adequately posted info that should have been easy to
find. This new page contains info about
The question came from one of the two people with car #407 in this spooky picture
Two cases this month where questions have come to me and I have
discovered how HARD it is to find some of the info on the website. Even
when I know that it is here, I have difficulty. Here are two
attempts to solve that. Main page, black band of menu choices --
second from the right in all capitals.

my buying and selling tips page, and found it more about SELLING, so I
added a bit to help buyers. Other ideas for this section are

Wow. When a car is an unknown VIN car (on a page reached by a link
at the top of each owners page) sometimes the actual VIN is discovered
later on. In those cases, there are lots of places to change the
designation of the car. In this case, car u001 (when I first realized
years ago that there were lots of unknown VIN cars and there needed to
be a way to tell one from the other) Well, car u001 is now car #161.
The new owner inherited the car from the person who bought it back in 2002 and checked in first on the message board forum, then by email. I made all the changes, and then forgot to mention it here in the LOG. oops. See owners list pg. 1
I will be off-line for a couple of weeks, starting in a couple of days.

|Added car 1092, a Pennsylvania Replicar Phaeton to owners list page 3. This is only a POSSIBLE for this VIN since the tag is missing, but read about the owner and his discoveries, and also see his AVAILABLE parts for what might be a 1976 Replicar.||3/5/16|

Glassic Reunion in Florida
Glassic Reunion in Florida
This one-day event, will, as of now, include Joel, the builder of the cars, as well as Glassic owners and fans. The event will be in Leesburg, FL
For more info please contact Wayne (car 141) at firstname.lastname@example.org
The odds are overwhelming that those who attend will have a GREAT
time. Here is some info on fun Reunions held years ago.
pages 1 & 2
Added a whole bunch of entries like this:
INFO NOT CURRENT
to the owners list pages, since Wayne (car 141) tried contacting Florida
car owners regarding a Reunion gathering -- he found, and reported back
tons of out of date info. In most cases, I left the old data on the list
so new owners can trace some history of their car. -- thanks for sharing
this info, Wayne.
Each week I get a report from the SEARCH button on the Annex. Last week I saw someone looked for Liberace's Glassic -- only they had spelled his name wrong. In case you did not find the info, here it is: http://glassicannex.org/506/506.htm
tech info about emissions control - and getting car 1452 to pass the
California smog test.
See the message board forum about a possible gathering in FLORIDA.
David, our Glassic whisperer, spotted car 264 owners list pg. 1 for sale in Ohio - the car is advertised as a Shay, so David DOES find the cars when others don't
Wayne, owner of car 141 - shared some interesting 4-wheel drive transmission info he found out. See car 197 on owners list pg. 1

|Phaeton #407, a for sale car, is in Huntsville AL, not Georgia, according to the on-line ad. See owners list pg. 1||1/20/16|
|Jimmy Seamon, who owns TWO Phaetons, has become a "repeat offender" by donating funds for a second time, thereby moving his status to "gold star level" in the Hall of Fame. Generous donations such as this are why we can see well over 4,000 pictures of Glassics on the site, without ads! Thanks AGAIN, Jimmy!||1/13/16|
|RI Phaeton spotted by David, our Glassic Whisperer - who called the seller and got the VIN of 757, so I could add the car to owners list page 2||1/12/16|
|ARkanas Replicars Roadster #1068 has a new owner. He also has available the spare tire arms and wheel covers for the side mounts - and he did not love the VW lights. Go figure. (no sign that he kept the VW lights) owners list page 3 Email him for a price if you need those spare tire arms or wheel covers.||1/5/16|
Happy New Year! I added another unknown
VIN car - this one has a 32 grill shell and wood dash, making it a
bit unique. It is the top one on the list.
I answered (or rather, Joel, the car builder) answered a question about the origin of the transmission mounting platform on a 1974 floor shift.
Back from the Caribbean and catching up with the website. Posted Phaeton
#1036 a FINLAND car. This also may be unknown VIN car u052, spotted for

Alabama white Phaeton # 1178 is now listed as FOR SALE--
info at owners list
page 2 -- LATER the same day added his phone numbers.
I removed the PREMIER GALLERY category from the topic bar on the home page. That feature has not been needed for several years as the Internet improved. It was a pay feature that was not that helpful compared to the free "for sale" listings on the owners pages. -
The Annexmaster got a new California personalized tag (no "vanity tag"
No donated funds were injured in this foolish, but fun, venture.
|Louisiana Phaeton #1112 spotted on eBay - this "celebrity" car was in the TV mini-series about Bonnie and Clyde. See owners list page 3.||11/6/15|
|New Arizona owner posted for Roadster #1029 - also a couple of great pictures. See owners list page 2 --||11/2/15|
Car 723 was mis-numbered, and is now 732. Then car 723-2 which I
thought was a duplicate VIN probably really WAS 723, so I took off all
the dash 2s. The Roadster 723 has some interesting modifications and
they are worth a look. owners list

|In speaking with David, the Glassic Whisperer (he spots ads for Glassics for us) I was explaining a web page that searches Craigs list in multiple cities. It was on the Annex LINKS page, but even I could not find it at first. It is now in two categories and has RED TYPE to make it stand out. Use different search terms to find cars for sale: Glassic, Fiberglass Ford, Replica etc.||9/21/15|

Florida Abercrombie Roadster # 401 has been added to
owners list pg. 1
Only one picture, but very high quality - don't forget to hit the (+) if it appears on a picture, for larger size.
I am intermittently scanning more items of LITERATURE - old
contributions that I never got to. These are all hidden among the
literature tab items on the Annex, but to see only the new additions,
look at the picture folder.
I will add to the above folder, but it is slow going since many of these are lower quality and need touch-up work. Also, there are thumbnail (tiny pics) in that folder - they are the first or left hand ones - they won't enlarge.
Car 1100 (a 1977 Phaeton) is For Sale at a Florida dealership. Tons of
great pictures make for good reference. owners list

Windows 10, new scanner software. Here are two items in the Literature

Generation 1 chassis (International based cars) and
a flyer from 1980's - not previously posted with some anatomy of the
Gen. 4 cars.

NC Phaeton # 736 has been added to owners list
A car spotted in Finland in an ad has been posted as car u052 since the seller did not respond with a VIN. Scroll down the unknown Vin cars page.
Three cars have shown up so far that are GLASSIC name badge cars with VINs in the 1400-1500 range. Here is a work-in-progress page to figure out what that is all about.
|TN Roadster # 1481 has been added to owners list page 3 and is FOR SALE - some info about the car is in with the pictures.||8/14/15|
|The car, previously know as u043 (a car whose VIN was unknown) has been identified as Car 1112 by its new owner on owners list page 3 This car was unknown because it was spotted on TV in a movie about Bonnie & Clyde.||8/12/15|

We should all thank him for his support, which makes it sooo easy to add
whatever content we need to the site. His name has been added to the
esteemed Hall of

their info or not, but it seems to all have been cleaned up now.

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.

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.

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

|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|

|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.

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|

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.

|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
