Back in 1996, I was a newbie to the World Wide Web, and was searching on subjects that fascinated me to see what might turn up. One of the sites I found was the Dodge Diplomat Home Page, administrated by Eric J. Plosky. I had already owned Farley (my Diplomat) for several years, and was pleased to find a resource for my car on the web. When I started plinking around with web sites in mid-1997, I created a three-page web site called Farley's Page. The front page featured a large photo of Farley, and a few short paragraphs about him and why I liked him so much. The second page contained a few photos of Farley, and the third had some details about the times he had been totaled since I became his owner.
Eric's Diplomat Home Page was still the main source of info, and I always had my links pointed his way, but he never responded to emails and the pages had not been updated in quite some time. A few pages were time stamped January of 1996. It didn't look good. I copied all of the useful information from the Diplomat Home Page and kept it on my hard drive in case the site should go down without warning, and eventually it did disappear.
To assist any Diplomat aficionados who might mourn the loss of the Diplomat Home Page, I posted the stuff I had saved from Eric's site, and it turned out to be a wise investment. As people managed to find their way in, traffic picked up quickly. I scrambled to find recent information and scoured every resource I could find to get Diplomat related photographs. Gracious and helpful visitors, and Mike Taylor of Mike's Chrysler Fifth Avenue Page in particular, generously contributed photos writings and links to help build the site up to what it is today.
Since opening in 1997, Farley's Page has grown over 200 times larger than it's original size, has registered over 100,000 hits, and averages around 50 brand new visitors every day. Now in its fourth "generation", Farley's Page features many useful tips on improving and maintaining not just a Mopar "M" body, but many other similar cars as well. Farley's Page is not an all-encompassing storehouse of information, however. There are many subjects not yet covered and ideas not yet shared, I hope if you have something to contribute, that you would be willing to share it with other satisfied Diplomat owners.
You can still read the original welcoming paragraph and stories of being totaled from the old original site on Farley the Diplomat. The first two pages in Farley's Photo Album contain photos from the original Photo Album.
Let me take this opportunity to thank you for dropping in and having a look around at my hobby site gone out of control. It has been and continues to be a pleasure to maintain Farley's Page, and I hope to continue to do so for quite some time.
