We have launched a new website Checker World to keep up with the changing times. Here are some of the items you will find there:
- Interactive map of all known Checkers around the world.
- Key document collections related to Checkers (e.g. Newsletters, Repair & Maintenance documents, Marketing & Advertising brochures, etc.)
BUILD SHEETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR CHECKERS
Classic car owners are often interested in the history and the documents relating to their vehicles. Having a paper trail increases the interest in, and the value of, those vehicles. It is now possible for Checker owners to obtain a copy of the build sheets (Purchase Orders) for their cars from the Gilmore Car Museum.
NEW OWNERS GET FREE 1 YEAR MEMBERSHIP
Effective January 1, 2015 new Checker owners can get a free one year membership simply by requesting it and providing a valid proof of recent purchase, such as a newly issued title, a dated bill of sale or confirmation letter from the previous owner. To request a free membership, contact Treasurer Tony Mattern.
