In conjunction with the changes made to the Owner's Registry I have updated the FAQ - "Add your Packard to the Owner Registry" to account for the changes and additional fields now available. Link to Updated FAQ.

Updated FAQ - Add your Packard to the Owner Registry
#7

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.

This updated FAQ follows from the changes our Webmaster, BigKev, has made recently and reflects a number of new fields and features made to this part of the Website.

From the Main Menu, on left side of the 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:

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
Two additional fields then display
VIN NUMBER & THEFT PROOF NUMBER Please complete these fields to provide a complete record of your Packard. If you don’t want to display this information just uncheck box to the right of these fields and this info will be hidden.

These selections conclude the mandatory fields required and opens the rest of the Submission screen for entry purposes.

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:
STATUS: Select from the drop down list when the status of your Packard changes
STATUS DATE: Enter the date the status of the car changed. In the format MM/DD/YYYY
ACQUIRED WHERE: & ACQUIRED DATE: Enter the location and date(In the format MM/DD/YYYY) you acquired the car.
ACQUIRED CONDITION: Use drop down list and select the appropriate description
OWNED LOCATION: Enter the location where the Packard now is.
OWNED CONDITION: Use drop down list and select the appropriate description
ORG DEALERSHIP: & DELIVERY DATE: Enter the name and date of the dealership the Packard was originally purchased from. Can often be found on the VIN Plate affixed to the firewall.

The next suite of fields covers Interior Information and Exterior Information,, comprising:
INTERIOR CODE:
INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
PAINT CODE:
PAINT NAME:
EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION:Please complete where known. The VIN Plate may have some of this information stamped on it.

The next suite of fields covers Drivetrain Information, comprising:
ENGINE SERIAL: If you don’t want to disclose this information to others untick the check box on the right.
ENGINE:
TRANSMISSION:

The follows a suite of fields of 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 face, a tear to the eye or a What The...! Please include yours.
The final suite of fields covers Vehicle Modifications

The last and very important step is adding a Picture of your Packard to the Registry entry.
To do this, you will first need the picture required to be saved to the harddrive of your PC, Mac or Laptop or other device. The picture must be a .JPG or .jpg only format File and picture size limitations apply. (Refer to this FAQ - WEBSITE: Photo Posting Guidelines and Troubleshooting) 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 at the foot of the Registry entry.

Don't forget Owner Registry entries can be updated/edited/changed/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.

Hi Mal; I tried to make some changes in my registry and lost picture for my 28, i was able to replace with new picture for the 28. Tried to upgrade the 42 and also lost picture and when I tried to replace it the outcome was up side down and could not correct. I hope the problem can be Big Keved. I would advise members not to make changes till fixed. keep up the extra effort that you do. Jon
P.S. some of the text for what had been done to cars was scrambled and unreadable.
Jon,

See Kev has responded.

However, regarding the photos, if still no joy, I could try to add them to your Registry entries if you can send them to my email - ozstatman@gmail.com. No guarantees but worth a shot.

Owner Registry Update

The recent changes to PackardInfo have now extended to the Packard Owner's Registry. Big Kev, rather than resting on his laurels, is updating many aspects of this fine Website. Kudos to you Kev!

The changes encompassed in the Registry are:

-Restyling and cleaning up the format.

-Some options have been renamed and a few more added.

- A NEW Status field has been added so a Car can be seen to SOLD, JUNKED, SCRAPPED, etc. The default is CURRENT OWNER and the is what all the entries are currently set to. Once the Status field is changed to anything other than CURRENT OWNER, then that entry cannot be edited by the original poster, this to lock the record for posterity. By this Forum Members are encouraged to actually add their VIN and Engine Serials. That will allow us to automatically tie records together for the same car. So to help with this, a tick box next to the VIN and Engine Serial number to allow a Forum Member to show or hide those numbers when others are viewing it. That way the data is still available to the website behind the scenes but is not on public display.

- A NEW field for Theft Proof Number has been added. Similarly this has a tick box next to it to permit the Forum Member to show or hide those numbers when others are viewing it.

I encourage ALL Forum Members to review the Owner Registry entry for their Packard/s and include VIN and Engine Serial numbers which are currently missing. For those not wanting to display this information, it's simply a matter of "unticking" the box.

Similarly, get in there and add your Theft Proof Number to your entry, and "untick" the box if need be.

The more Theft Proof Numbers, VIN's and Engine Serial Numbers there are, I'm sure Owen_Dyneto will be more than happy. O_D has an ongoing research project analysing these numbers, so you can assist in his researh by providing yours.

If I can assist with anything pertaining to the Registry please contact me by PM or by Emailing ozstatman@gmail.com
