I have a serious predilection when it comes to the Packard Owner's Registry. I want the Registry to continue to grow, becoming a repository of Packard ownership and history which all can see, share but most of all enjoy. To this end I encourage all members to include their Packards in the Packard Owner's Registry. I usually do this by direct contact when new members first post asking them to make a Registry entry for their Packard. And to assist in this process, and encouraged by other members, I have drafted the following guide to assist all to do so.



From the Main Menu, left side of PackardInfo's Home Page, select Packard Owner Registry

Then when the Registry opens select the Add your Packard to the Registry field which will open another window titled:

Packard Owners Registry Submission, which asks you to "Please try to fill out as many fields as possible, you can edit them later if needed."

The first three fields to be completed are mandatory and contain the Model Information for your Packard. If unsure of the model of your Packard refer to the VN plate usually found on the firewall/cowl or do a search on Packard Model Information which is also to be found in the Main Menu

Then
Select YEAR: from the drop down list, then select the GO button
Select SERIES: from the drop down list, then select the GO button
Select MODEL: from the drop down list, then select the GO button
These selections conclude the mandatory fields required and opens the rest of the Submission form for entry purposes. At this point you will have to scroll back towards the top of the screen because it opens up the Submission form more than halfway down the page.
However there remains an optional field in this area which should be completed to provide more meaningful information for your Registry entry, being:
Select VIN Number: from the drop down list, complete then select the GO button

Most of the following fields allow for free text, except for a few with drop down list selections, so please supply as much detail as you can to make your Owner Registry entry as interesting and meaningful as possible.

The next suite of fields covers General Information, comprising:
FOUND WHERE:
FOUND CONDITION: Use drop down list and select appropriate description
CURRENT LOCATION:
CURRENT CONDITION: Use drop down list and select appropriate description
PLANNED USE:

The next suite of fields covers Interior Information, comprising:
INTERIOR CODE:
INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:

The next suite of fields covers Exterior Information, comprising:
PAINT CODE:
PAINT NAME:
EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION:

The next suite of fields covers Drivetrain Information, comprising:
ENGINE:
ENGINE SERIAL (OPTIONAL):
TRANSMISSION:

The next suite of fields covers Other Information, comprising:
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT:
VEHICLE HISTORY/PROJECT STATUS: Here's where it can become very interesting, some of the stories of acquisition and/or ownership of a Packard bring a smile to the lips, a tear to the eye or a What The...! Please include yours.

The next suite of fields covers Custom Modifications, where you can Check all Categories that Apply. being: Engine Transmission Brake Body Other
And provide Modification Detail:

The last field to be completed is adding a Picture of your Packard.
To do this, you will first need the picture required to be saved to the harddrive of your PC, Mac or Laptop. The picture must be a .JPG or .jpg only format File and picture size limitations apply. (Refer to FAQ - WEBSITE: Photo Posting Guide Lines) Click into the blank field or onto the Browse button, select the picture you previously saved to your harddrive and save that picture to your Registry entry.

All that remains is to review the information entered and then select the Add to Registry button.

And don't forget Owner Registry entries can be updated/edited/added to at any time by selecting the "Make Changes" button at the foot of your Owner Registry entry. Then, after the changes are made, selecting the "Save Changes" button also at the end of your Owner Registry entry.
