  1. Love the photos and thank you for identifying them. I've never seen some of them. The Corvette is a 1964.

    1929 Mercedes SSK

    It would be a steal if it were a real 1929 Mercedes SSK. I am not sure what a replica is worth.

    There are additives to replace the lead you can use. Also you might consider using gas without ethanol - this site list the stations by state that sell it - http://www.buyrealgas.com/ Ethanol is not good for older car fuel systems.

    Define replica

    I’m not sure I can definitely say what a replica is, but I can say what it’s not. This is definitely not. With possibly the exception of the Faux-bra very few can pull it off.

    Email Security

    I have not had any problems that I know of and the whole idea of trying to hide peoples' email addresses is a fool's errand. Email addresses get out. And email addresses are not the spawn to identity theft. Careless people are what cause ID theft. The real answer is to get smart about your email, use a good spam filter, be super careful about clicking on links, and never xfer money in any fashion without verbal confirmation. So, maybe you say on your site: "We protect our members from ID theft by making sure people whose addresses appear on the site are aware of it; have the option to opt out of it, and by making sure they are well aware of safe email practices." It was probably a coincidence that you posted the email addresses and shortly after your president’s email was hacked.
  6. I have heard the AACA Winter Meet which was to be held in Puerto Rico has been canceled, for obvious reasons, and has been relocated to Mobile Alabama on March 22-24, 2018. So far it does not appear on the Meet Information or Calendar of Events pages of the National website and I was wondering if what I heard is true.

    Website Overhaul

    I like your new site. It’s clear and easy to navigate. My only suggestion is that you have your links to information or documents open in a new window instead of leaving your site as they do now. Webmaster for the South Florida Region

    What are you doing with your car this weekend?

    Well down here is South Florida our season is pretty much over until the fall. It is now to hot and humid with very unpredictable showers and thunderstorms to go out for more than a short ride. We had a busy beginning of the year with 9 local shows and the A.A.C.A Winter Meet since January 1st.

    2016 Master Webmaster Awards!

    Thank you for posting the list of winners. I was at the 2016 meeting and I remember being told that a revised judging form was in the works for websites. I was unable to attend this year’s meeting and I was wondering if a new judging form or Webmasters Manual similar to the Newsletter Editors Manual was distributed. I would be very interested in getting copies if they are available so I can improve my website.

    Master?

    Although I said I got my letter on Friday I may have been mistaken as to the level of the award. After rereading these post, particularly Mark McAlpine’s, and rereading my letter it is not clear to me what award I have won. It says I have won an “AACA Webmaster Award”, with no mention of Master or any other designation.

    Master?

    I got mine Friday for the South Florida Region's website. I have emailed our editor, but haven't heard back from her about the that award.
  12. Since this was last discussed in March I was wondering if this happened and I missed it? Bob

    Master?

    Being the warmest city in Pennsylvania is kind of like being the best looking frog in the pond. Actually I grew up in Connecticut and loved winter and winter sports. As a longtime resident of Miami I have become a Floridian. Thanks for the advice and phone number.

    Master?

    I noticed on the seminar schedule that there is a Webmasters’ Forum on Friday from 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM, and that it is “By Invitation Only”. How does one get invited as this would be of interest to me as our club’s webmaster?
