from the Webmaster
so now you have a face and know what kind of
a car I drive. Naturally, a Chrysler Product - a 1960
Chrysler Saratoga. I'm glad you found your way to this page of
our web site. First, I've been into cars as
long as I can remember. Back in the late 1950s when I was a
small boy I could pick out a Ford from a Dodge or Pontiac, and
those beautiful late 1950s cars with their fins and wrap around
windshields got me hooked at an early age. I knew the year of
every car on the road, except for the Imports which at that
time were mostly British. My parents drove a British
Ford Import which I had no use for. Sorry if I've
offended any Brits or British car lovers - I am of Scots and English
descent myself. Just have no real excitement for British cars,
but as I get older I appreciate them a little more.
I always wanted something big, beautiful, bold in statement,
built in North America, and exciting to drive - with as many power
gadgets as I could handle. My first car, in 1974 was a
1958 Dodge Custom Royal 2 door hardtop. Over the years since
then I've owned 7 Forward Look era Chrysler Products and this is the
latest, ( bought in 2008) which I plan to keep for quite a
or so I was looking
for a club to join so that I could find some elusive parts for the
car I then owned, which was a 1960 Dodge Polara four door
hardtop ( now owned by a good friend of mine). I finally found
this club in 1978, joined immediately and have been a continuous
member ever since. That happens to be 33 years at this time of
I've attended National and Regional Meets since 1980 (not every
year) and I have to tell you it's been a lot of fun. In
1997 I started this web site for the club and have been
maintaining and upgrading it since then.
I receive an average of 4-8 inquiries by Email through this
site, and many of them are from non-members asking me where to find
a specific part for their 19XX Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto,
Chrysler, Imperial etc. As I am only one human
being of limited resources, and nowhere near the age of the Chrysler Corp. which
was established in 1925, I cannot possibly know where to find
all these parts for all these years of cars. If I
researched and answered every inquiry for apart, I would have
no time for anything else. This is where I'm gonna be blunt. IF you are
not a member, and if you own an old Chrysler Product and are
having a hard time looking for a part, you need to belong to
this club. Its a simple matter of
arithmetic. You join, you read the magazine,
you read the ads, you place your own ads, you contact
other members, you attend a meet once in a while, you
get to know other members, make friends. You will
find your parts. There has never been a part I could not
find for one of my cars since I've been a member of this club.
Most of the parts I've found over the years have been from other
club members, some parts from Ebay ( and even then some of
those parts were from club members!)
I cannot stress ENOUGH how important it is for an old car
owner, of the need to belong to an organization that caters to the type
of car he or she owns. You need to be a member,
you need to be involved in a club. This club caters to
all Chrysler Products. If you aren't a member and own one of
these old beasts, then for goodness sake PLEASE JOIN. And
get involved in some of the on line discussion forums.
There are a huge amount of these forums that also cater to the
different eras and models of Chrysler Products.
Since the Internet has come into being it has made finding parts for
old cars a huge amount easier, but a club membership is still
important. For the life of me, I cannot understand
why anyone who owns an old car would not want to belong to an
organization that caters to the type of car they own.
We are a club of
about 4000 members, many of whom are suppliers who advertise in our
club magazine, A number of these suppliers are listed on our club
Reproduction Suppliers page. I
can't believe the number of people who send email to me asking for
parts without even first checking out these pages and some of the
links. Read through the site, spend some time on
it and you will be amazed at the number of resources that are
available just on this site, through information and links to
other useful sites that will help you in your on-going search.
Have I said enough?
