What's New?

July 2012 — Made ads smaller and “un-centered.” Replaced Mirada thumbnails with full sized photos and got rid of unused code on that page.

November 2011 —  Fancy new look for the main pages. Nine months into “new management.” 

October 2011 — Fixed more forum issues, made very minor updates to home page, fixed "unable to register" problem.

September 2011 — Security update to forums. Continued spammer removal.

June 2011 — Swapped moderately slow advertising banner on bottom for faster one, again (and again). Continued spammer removal — and the long delayed move to SMF 2.0! With all the error fixing and updates that entailed.

May 2011 — Extensive spammer removal from the forums. Fixed code on numerous other pages (my fault — I'd stripped code badly). Swapped slow advertising banner on bottom for moderately faster one.

April 5, 2011 — Stripped email addresses from the Plosky forum archive; updated history page; fixed code on a few more pages

April 2, 2011 — Also updated Cordoba and Imperial pages with new information.

April 1, 2011 — Working member map! To add yourself, log into the forums, then go to Profile -> Forum Profile Information. You'll see the map near the bottom of the page; you have to add yourself that way (not from the Location field).

March 31, 2011 — Put all archived registry entries onto single page for easier viewing. Removed all email address to stop spam cultivation. Removed obsolete archived registry pages. Did the same for the guest book; all one one page, emails removed or defused.

March 2011 — Uploaded revised pages — no content changes to speak of, just faster loading standard header/footer (including the standard menu from the forums), fewer ads. Lots of work on the forums to stop spammers and such. Removed dead links, took out moribund webrings. (Gosh, those brought back memories. Webrings, web awards... half of 'em were SEO scams. They all seemed to disappear overnight.) Preparing to do major renovation of image pages. Started move to css basis for the site (for greater speed). Larger type. Album partly moved over from defunct Coppermine install.

8/9/1999 - Updates were limited for the past two months while I worked on remodeling the site. I could not keep making dual updates (to both the "live" site and the "beta" site) and keep my head on straight. Now that the new site is posted, updates will again be making a regular appearance. There are still a few bugs to work out, as can be expected anytime this much is changed. Please let me know about any dead links or visual problems you encounter.

week, all Predecessors pages have been removed other than Plymouth Valiant, Dodge Aspen, Plymouth Volare, Chrysler Imperial LeBaron, and Other Predecessors. NOTE: Mike

pages Diplomats 15, Diplomats 16 and Chrysler Siblings 5. All new images are from of the Police Car Web Site, which I've shared some photos with recently. Also edited the
Diplomat History, adding many links to pictures to provide some visual aids to go along with some explanations. Freshened up the Site Index.

10/12/1998 - Added a parts listing to the Sales and Parts page. Added an image to Chrysler Siblings 4.

10/9/1998 - Tweaked the colors and appearance some more. Let me know if you like it or not. Added an image to Chrysler Siblings 4, added new Predecessors page Chrysler
Imperial LeBaron, with three images. Built the first of the new Descendants pages, for the Chrysler LeBaron.

10/8/1998 - Completed a serious site design modification. Now there is some color to brighten things up, and navigational aids are more consistent in location and style.

10/5/1998 - Added to the Registry. Registrations are occurring so frequently that I will not be making a note of such updates on this page for new registrations in the future.
It is safe to assume that there will be two or three new entries per week based on current trends. Revised the History page to clear up some confusion about the Fifth
Avenue's naming by year, and 83-on LeBarons.

10/5/1998 - Added to the Registry. Added Plymouth Siblings 7 with some photos I turned up, and a Link to the source.

10/2/1998 - Added to the Registry. Added some linked resources at Diplomat Commentary.

9/30/1998 - Added to the Registry.

9/29/1998 - Added an image to Diplomats 14, and added yet more Links.

9/28/1998 - Added to the Registry.

9/24/1998 - Added to the Registry, added a listing at Sales and Parts.

9/23/1998 - Separated the Maintenance Update from the Meet Farley page. Added three images, they are spread out between Plymouth Siblings 6, and new pages Diplomats 14
and Chrysler Siblings 4. New Links category, Law Enforcement Vehicle Sites. Added to the Registry.

9/22/1998 - Added to the Registry. Added some photos to the Maintenance Update. Added six new Background Images.

9/21/1998 - Added some rare photos I received over the weekend to Diplomats 13. Added new page Background Images, with more material to come.

9/18/1998 - Located Eric Plosky's current Home Page. Though it does not have Diplomats, the man behind the original Diplomat Site will always deserve a mentioning here. Also
added another Link.

9/8/1998 - Added to the Registry. Plunked in a few more odd Links.

8/31/1998 - Added Diplomats 13, with a photo I received over the weekend, and some others I turned up.

8/28/1998 - Added the Diplomat Imitators area. So far only includes the one I know about, the Ford Fairmont. I got bored today so I went and cruised the web looking for some more cool Links. See the "My Picks" section at the bottom.

8/25/1998 - The Diplomat Cousins area is completed. Included are all three Chrysler "J" body cars.

8/24/1998 - Added some images to Chrysler Siblings 3, Plymouth Siblings 6, and created a new Diplomats Page, Diplomats 12. Added some of Farley's stories to Diplomat Stunts. I'm really hoping to get a lot of entertaining material for that page.

8/21/1998 - Coming soon: Diplomat Cousins Photo Album Section. This will be based on the "M" body-derived "J" body Chrysler products, the Chrysler Cordoba and Dodge Mirada. They could be considered as descendants, though their entire body style lifespan was within the life span limits of the "M" body cars, so for purposes of Farley's Page they will be considered cousins.

I've been fine-tuning the pages since the Great Crash last week, making sure all image links work and bringing conformity back to the site and file structure. As usual, let me know if you find something broken.

I've added a new page, called Diplomat Stunts. Use the Diplomat Registration Form to submit your wild stories for others to marvel at.

8/18/1998 - This page is new, for starters. This way everyone can find out what has been happening on the site whether they are on the mailing list or not. From now on update notices will only notify of the update, and you can see what's new by looking here.

I've just finished a major remodel of the site intended to speed up page loads and streamline the appearance of the site. The background image was removed, and real thumbnails were installed on all of the pages with images. I had not known how to create thumbnails until last week. I'm still new at this, remember. Anyway, many of the pages here now load up to 80% faster, according to my software.

The Scrapbook Siblings section has been reorganized according to make and model. The Chrysler LeBaron/New Yorker/Fifth Avenue cars were separated from the Gran Fury/Caravelle cars. This was based mainly on how much I like the same technique Mike used at the Fifth Avenue Page.

Coming up will be a reorganization of the Scrapbook Descendants section. It will be similar to the Predecessors, with individual pages designated to individual cars. I will try to build a picture timeline for each model showing its progression (if any) since the Diplomat cars.
