Re: [Chrysler300] Clearing House





The Clearing House was started in the 70s when there was no instantaneous advertising.  It was a service for club members that was as fast as the postman could deliver.  Back then 300s were being crushed because no one knew about them - or learned of their sale until a month or more passed.  Magazine advertising was not cheap either.  

With the internet and email, there is no need for the buy/sell activity of a snail mail service.  However, we did end up with quite a lot of historical information about the condition of 300s as filled out on the form.  Naturally we still have those original forms.  They are recorded with the VIN information.  Owners would fill the forms out in detail many times down to the individual dent and rust area.  Some folks sent their form in and declared the car not for sale but happy to be recorded in the club archives.

The Clearing House is an archival function now, but the form is still available.  Should there be enough interest in describing your car by way of words (and scanned photo if you want), we can always ask Andy, the editor to add it to a News-Flite.

Speaking of blasts from the past, is there still a Chrysler 300 Clearing House like in the old days?  I got my first 55 Chrysler 300 via a listing in the club Clearing House.  It was quite the bedraggled puppy when I first saw it, but 4 years later it came out rather well, and I ultimately sold it to fund my G convertible purchase.
Perhaps no need for the Clearing House with just the classified section on the club site?  Seems like there were 'extra' cars listed in the clearing house.
