    I think a registry should have everyone's car listed, with a photo and owners name and city, unless the owner opts out.


    Agreed, that is what I am compiling now for owners that are sending me their information. The personal information will be private and not listed on the public site. Car information, counts per year, total cars in the registry, etc will be available for anyone to see. Including as many car pictures as I can get.


    Thanks to all of you for your feedback and links to some great sites, I never would have found some of these without your input.

    We host the site for the Gardner Motor cars:  www.gardnermotorcars.com.


    Thanks I'll give it a look. Any tips for one getting ready to build one?


    I should note I also am the webmaster for our local chapter of the HCCA so this is not my first stab at building out a website.


  3. What are some good marque specific car registry websites out there? I am familiar with the Cole website and all the great information and stories that are available there. I am looking to build one myself for a marque that does not have an Internet home yet. As a starting point I am trying to build out a list of surviving cars and owners. Over the years I have been collecting memorabilia and literature that I will use to tell the story of these cars. I have some ideas to feature on the site:

    • Gallery of cars with information about year and model
    • History page to summarize the history of the company
    • A place for current owners to "register" their car with us if only to gather info and keep track of which cars are left.
    • A page to help future owners determine what year and model their car is.
    • A place to showcase ads, pictures, and memorabilia, etc.


    Maybe you have some suggestions of pages that could/should be part of a marque specific website. One thing I will not have available is contact information for each of the cars in the registry. Owners and their car's location will be private.

  4. I am trying to get the word out that I am restarting the Chandler-Clevand Registry. Our small club is pretty much defunct these days and I am hoping to at least keep the shell of the group together and the list of cars centralized. I have emailed many of the owners that I know about and posted my story on the Chandler Cleveland Forum (https://forums.aaca.org/topic/340886-new-chandler-cleveland-registry/). Just hoping with this much bigger audience to get a few more owners pointed in my direction. Thanks for reading and sharing the news.

  5. About 10-15 years ago I took over the registry of owners of Chandler and Cleveland motor cars. I passed those duties off to other Chandler-Cleveland club members who maintained the list after me. I have not seen updates in awhile, so maybe it's time to give the Registry a fresh start.
    My short-term goal is to collect information to put together a list of all of the surviving cars from the Chandler-Cleveland factory. Ideally this would identify the cars by:
    • Car serial number (VIN) and motor numbers where available
    • pictures
    • information about the options with the car
    • current state/condition
    • any history the present owner is willing to share
    I am particularly sensitive about sharing publicly, contact information about the owners and where you live. In this day and age personal security of private information is a hot topic and one I will not compromise. At the same time it's really important that we keep in touch and share our information about our cars to help those that are trying to put their car back on the road or those who are just seeking information that is unique to our make of automobile.
    John Lackey did a fine job compiling his book on our cars and giving all of us a reference source that we can all use. If you don’t have a copy make sure to get a copy and read it cover to cover like I have. Its required reading for any Chandler-Cleveland owner. Now it's time to keep the ball rolling. We need to keep track of the cars and see what we can learn collectively about what is left of the hundreds of thousands of cars the factory produced. Hopefully we can document 100 or maybe 200 cars.
    With your support I would like to create a website dedicated to Chandler-Cleveland cars focused on the cars, memorabilia, and history of the company. There are other makes who have a website dedicated to their orphan cars as well. I plan to study them and see what I can model for our version. But that is in the future after we are able to get the Registry updated and going again.
    So here it is my first “official” request that you share information about you and your car(s). I promise to accurately and securely document your car for the Registry. Respond  to this thread with details about your car(s). Pictures would be great and will help document what you have. I know from past experience how valuable pictures are to accurately document the details about a car and to validate what we believe to be correct whether that to be the year or model we have. I have attached a Registry form you may fill in and return and a reference sheet to help determine were your car’s serial number is and what it is. Please "private message" me to add your car information.

  6. We'll I guess I'll be the first to respond. Our car is a 1914 Chandler Model 15, one three known to survive, but the only one on the road. The car was last restored in the early 1960's by the third owner for the second owner and has been carefully maintained ever since. We are fortunate to be the fourth caretakers of this car and could not be happier.

    My 1919 Chandler motor. L Head.



    Looking good Eric. I see a few differences in six years of development. Interesting that Chandler stayed with the same basic design for so long. I might be wrong but the next generation engine was probably the Pike's Peak motor in 1923.
