Re: [Chrysler300] 1962 H Dash Paint

I am an infrequent user of the forward look a a few other sites, however I don't find this site that much of a problem. I actually learn from other members with different letter cars than mine and the delete key works just fine. The forums on other sites can be advantageous at times, they are not always the answer. There have been many times when I have not "bookmarked " a post properly but know it was discussed in eons past, and posting the issue has resulted in a quick direction from sever members, so it has worked pretty well for me. We should not forget that club members are doing this service voluntarily and may not wish to make their lives more complicated. Just my Canadian two cents worth, actually only about $1.50 US‎ :)

This is exactly my experience in other forums I frequent.  You give/take as much as you care to, and can choose what you want to read.  For instance, in my Miata Forum (, it divides the model generations into separate groups, but also has Forum-wide topics of interest. 


I enjoy Chrysler Letter Car give-and-take as much as the next guy, but receiving 25 emails about somebody getting hacked (to choose but one example) grinds my gears. 


Thanks are due, however, to those whose efforts have allowed for us to communicate up to now.  Bravo-

There won't be a ton of traffic on whatever board is used. When you arrive on a daily basis, hit "new posts". It will show all unread posts in all forums. The forward look setup of categories makes sense. Makes it easy to find all topics. It is also much easier to search than the email server system. 


I'd much rather search for specific information vs being loaded with emails to which I can offer nothing.

This is a very good example of the sort of question that may get lost if/when we change out from our Yahoo Groups format. The query may just be obscure enough that no one has asked (and no one has answered) it before. With the current Yahoo format every club member sees the question you need an answer to, and if we think we may be able to help in any way, we will chime in. But if we convert to a format that pigeon-holes everything by year and/or topic, you might ask your dash paint question, and the chance of anyone just happening to see it under the heading of "1962 300H", with a sub-heading of "Interior" is going to be next to nil. No one's going to be exploring there just to kill time. And because no one ever asked your same question before, you won't find an existing answer there either. So how are you going to get the dash color information you need?


I agree that the free-for-all style that we have now can really load your Inbox sometimes, and you just have to delete or ignore a lot of it. But the sharing of accurate and indispensable information with such rapidity has been the characteristic I have found to be so very helpful. Whatever happens to our forum, I hope we can still have a large exposure of questions and conversation regarding these obscure cars of ours with all their unusual quirks. Otherwise I fear we will have lost a certain camaraderie we have all found very helpful and interesting.

Just for confirmation...

Factory dash color is the copper metallic bronze; right?  Anyone have a good paint code?


Finally getting ready to paint our H!!
