The other purpose was to give people like myself and others who are far from an existing region a place to meet and have a voice in POC club discussions.   I don’t think Mark understood the concept or how to organize the board properly to accommodate the idea.   I even toyed with the idea of actually creating an internet region for disconnected and younger more computer savvy POC members.   This might help get them more involved in the club with the possibility to maybe help each other even though they are separated by hundreds of miles.   I enjoyed the early P15D24 site and I was influenced by this experience to create the 28Q29U site.   After 10 years it’s doing well.  No ads.
Anyway I couldn’t make any headway without national buy in.  I think the emphasis was put on Facebook.  FYI.., I believe there are one or two other Internet Group members I don’t know if they are still active on the forum.

BTW.., I highly recommend your site for Plymouth: The First Decade. … Well Done!!

Hi Chet, I've only just found this and I think it's brilliant I think it's a great resource and can see many good reasons for having it available, I did try to logon but couldn't. Your detailed page on your P15 interests me as I would like to think I may have one in the future. Access to your manuals would be very useful to me I think it was to top one of you list of Links.

Here in the UK it's too cold to do much bodywork, while the 41 Pickup is ready for paint the temperature isn't so of now I'm working on the upholstery for the cab, once thats done I can always drop back on the full retrim on my 33 PD R/S Coupe. By the way very impressed with the transformation of your P15.

Off topic: Chet, I see that your signature says you are part of the "Internet Region Group". This is the first I've become aware of such a thing for the Plymouth Owners Club and I don't see anything about that on the website home page nor do I see that in a random Plymouth Bulletin laying near my computer. Who/what is that and where can I find more information? Thanks!

Technically I am a member of the Delaware Valley Region.  Although.., the meetings are a 2.5 hour drive for me so unfortunately I don’t make many.  Not an uncommon story…, anyway.

The internet region was a suggestion I made to Mark to allow access to discussion boards within the current forum that could only be accessed by current members of the POC.   This is done through the administrative permissions that are created for the discussion category.  Members without permissions wouldn’t even see these boards when they were logged in.  This would keep POC member discussions unencumbered by nonmembers.  At the time there were a lot of critiques provided to the board by nonmembers.   It’s not that I wanted to shy away from the comments I just wanted to know that the discussion comments were being made by actual club members.  You can also create a group called “POC Member” rather than “Internet Region Group (Paid $$$)” You could create groups separated by regional membership, etc.  Each of these created groups can be granted permissions.  You are a tech savvy guy you should understand what I was driving for.

..., will you be working through the winter?.  Sure Bob would be looking down smiling, bless him.

First of all many thanks for all the At-A-Boys.  Sorry to hear about Bob from the Plymouth Bulletin.  Very sad.

Spent the holidays in Florida with the grand kids.  In answer to your question I have been trying to work on the car but it is very difficult to do body work in the colder weather.  I might be picking up the motor soon, so it will be easer to get some wrench time over the cold snaps.

Speaking of cold snaps., I don't know how you guys in the central north section of the US get anything done during the winter months.  :(

Sorry to all for the delayed response,  Chet...

Prep for Paint - Last of the Door/Door Frame Repairs.

I started on this in June and over the summer have been distracted by a number of things but this weekend I finally completed this section of my project.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Yours is a beautiful team, unfortunately not living next door to their Grandpa!
  Here are mine, Helena and Aenias (father is greek).
Aenias always at the controls: rocket flyer or Ply driver,
leaving inadequate transportation behind:

he had permission to toot the horn twice!

This one without vehicle- but self flying:

This bouncing giraffe castle (My shop compressor for the Ply is useful!)
is loved most- and on those days Grandpa is the greatest -in spite of incomplete landing!!
Greetings to all Grandpas and Mas and others!

Grand kids are every thing, we have 5, three boys and two girls, the oldest boy of thirteen, he shadows me all the time one of those kids that will not grow away, I have 2 Morris/ Austin minis that I hope I will find enough time to build one for him. I have so many grown-up toys waiting to be finished, steaming ahead with my 41 Pick-up to the stage where it is now in my workshop, hope to remove the cab next week.
