RE: [Chrysler300] FW: Gary's update

Mike and Karen:


Thanks for renewing my faith in the human race.  And that of so many others.  Good Samaritans are in short supply in the general population but quite common among the Chrysler 300 fraternity.


Gary is well-tended by his loving wife Alana and is quite the independent guy.  But he might just enjoy, appreciate and utilize your company for a while so I’ll try to get this to him and ask to him contact you directly.  Kalispell is lovely this time of year.


God bless,


Rich Barber

My wife and I would love to be able to help Gary and his family.  We are in Washington state and would like to come over and help with meals, cleaning, yard work, boxing up stuff, whatever!


We are retired and would love to be able to help out only if Gary and his family would like us to do so.  We would stay in a motel in Kalispell and make sure we would not be a burden or interfere with their family life.


Please let us know if you think this would be acceptable.

Dear Friends, Fans and Customers of Gary Goers:

I’m glad to share excerpts of a health and business update from Gary Goers.  He went into some details of circulatory, healing and amputation plans that I’ve condensed.  I’ll send you the entire gory details if you wish.  Doctors are in no rush to do the necessary amputations until they are sure circulation will help healing after surgeries to remove a toe on one foot and the foot and ankle on the other.  A hip replacement is in the cards, also.  Extent of his complaining: “Gee, this is so much fun”.   A true Mountain Man in so many ways.

Gary is a very spiritual guy and deserving of prayers from those of us that are also on a first-name basis with our Maker.

Bottom line:

Gary is slowed down considerably and is under doctors’ care for severe leg and foot problems that will lead to amputations and joint replacement.  He is toughing it out while catching up and keeping up with orders.  His catalog may be viewed at:  www.garygoers.! com Click on the teeny little words in the upper RH corner “Gary’s Catalog”.  After you find something you need for your Beautiful Brute, look up the price on the price sheet page, fill out the order blank page, add 10% for inflation and 10% for shipping.  He will refund any overage.  His top priority is making items, fabricating interiors and shipping stuff to us so he does not generally have time or tendency to answer e-mail or phone calls.  Read the catalog, find your items, do the paperwork, add a check, write out any questions or concerns and mail them to him in Kalispell, MT.

On the home front, we would encourage each of you to get the shingles vaccine.  Avoiding or reducing weeks of debilitating pain is a good thing.  Prior bouts do not prevent recurrence.

Hang in there, Gary!

Hi Rich,

Been busy catching up and am somewhat.  (Details omitted)  Keeping up with regular orders and catching up on seat orders.

Updating the update sheetNo time to retype everything and add some so just a few things to catch up with the two-year-old news sheet.

Good news is that my molds for chrome parts turned up with another company and they have already made a few items for me.  I'm glad to say the the '55-'56 300 nose letters are in the mail to me right now and the quarter panel letters and numbers for these two years are in the works finally.  '60 Chrysler hood scripts are here and the glove box script for '60-'61 300 will be done soon.  Also in the works are the '60 backup housings, F & G side medallion bazels, '60 trunk handle, and maybe even '57-'59 300 side medallion bezels.  They are working on getting a model made so the shrinkage won't be a problem.  Cost of these items jumped up some since they were last made several years ago, but the 10% price increase should cover most, if not all, of the increase.

I'm slowly catching up and everyone with interiors ! ordered will be getting them soon.  Lots of C, F & G seats just about finished.  Still lots to do, but getting over the hump.

.  If the amputation site won't heal, then there's more trouble than I want.  I'm having therapy for circulation twice a week and hope it will improve things a lot--and soon.

Thanks for your support and patience.
