    EASTERN DIVISION NAT'L SPRING MEET JULY 11-14

    Members 282 299 posts Location: Katonah N.Y. Report post x #2434 Posted Sunday at 05:32 PM A big thanks to the Chesapeake Region for an outstanding job and raising the bar. Just got home a few hours ago from the AACA North East National Meet in Gettysburg. We left Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we did the car tours, a Friday bus tour and then showed the '75 Electra Saturday. It was a fantastic event, extremely well organized and run. I was totally surprised and very happy last night at the Awards banquet when the car won it's First Place Jr. Award. The car drove flawlessly and we ended up visiting a friend in Pa. on the way home today. Total mileage for the trip was 767 miles and the car now has 22197 miles. I bought her last July with 18500 original miles and have enjoyed every mile since then.

  4. Took the Electra out for a memorial drive and lunch for Cancer research, about 120 miles total.. Lots of Sports cars and some American Iron. Will clean her up and have it all checked out tomorrow. Driving down to Gettysburgh Tuesday for the Saturday AACA National plus 3 days of touring.

    EASTERN DIVISION NAT'L SPRING MEET JULY 11-14

    Looking forward to this event. Will be driving our Electra from NY and hope to do all the tours. Having it judged for the first time. Depending on how it does (correct tires unavailable) and what will be needed to maybe have it judged again, either that or put it into HPOF or DPC the next time.
  6. Took the Electra to a show in Norwalk Ct. by the North East Auto Museum. A lovely location right by a Mansion and next to a Childrens Museum. It was a hot nice day with a good turnout. Drove the car 44 miles total. It was a pleasure to have A/C for the ride home. Only shut it once for 5 minutes when stuck in some traffic just to be safe.
  7. Went to the Long Island BCA show today. A few sprinkles in the early morning and then overcast and comfortable for the rest of the day. Took the '75 Electra and drove for a total of 165 miles roundtrip. We left a little early to try and avoid the traffic getting off Long Island to get home. Didn't matter too much as there always seems to be traffic on a Sunday afternoon. We had a great time and caravaned with different friends coming and going. I just called Marty Jablonski who I wanted to thank for the great show and see how the car did. The Electra took another First in class!

    Thanks Steve, Reservation made in Ft Wayne. Almost all hotels in Auburn already sold out and the same with Ft Wayne. Make your reservations early!
  9. I drove the '73 4 speed a little to blow out the cobwebs. Then onto the trailer for the Greenwich Concours American day Saturday. Had a great time and the quality and variety of the Muscle Car class was outstanding.
  10. John, It was great to see you Saturday. The wife and I drove up to give some support to the club event. I could not get my '73 FAST car out for the races because of this weekends Greenwich Concours in which I will be showing the '73 4 speed and not enough time in between to do both. It was also very nice to see Pete Phillips there also and have him take some pictures of the Black Boat. Sorry I did not take any pictures. (Brain Freeze) It was a 203 mile roundtrip for us in the Electra and it was a pleasant ride both ways to top it all off. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
  11. We took the Electra on a tour Sunday to the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park. We then went a few miles over to a park and had a nice picnic lunch in a Gazebo with a stone fireplace around 200 ft. from the Hudson River. Wet roads in the morning and then a few showers on the way home. We drove 179 miles roundtrip.
  12. We took the '75 Electra to a 2 hour show with the Lower Huson Valley BCA and a local Cadillac club to Green Chimney in Brewster NY. This is a school for the whole spectrum of developmentally challenged kids. The kids had a wonderful time touching, getting in the cars, blowing the horns occasionally. It was a wondeful feeling sharing our cars with them and it was a great group of kids. Some of us then went to a show in New Milford Ct. that started at 12 for a friend who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This was a well attended event with 225 cars, a mobile dyno and an eclectic gathering of cars ranging from Tuner cars, to American vintage. I left that show with another Buick buddy about a half an hour from the end to get home early. On the ride home I recieved a phone call from another friend saying the Electra won Best of Show and he had my trophy. What a great and rewarding day in more ways then one.
  13. I got the '75 Electra out of its winter storage yesterday. The battery was DOA. Finally got it started and the lower fuel line was leaking. My son in law put a quick patch over the leak with some rubber hose and clamps. Got it started again, warmed it up and drove it home 15 miles or so. Glad she did not stall or I would have been stuck. As soon as I got home she was dead again. Son in law got a new hose and battery and good as new! We took it today to the Concours d' Caffiene in Westport Ct. with lunch after for a 78 mile roundtrip. Rainy and Cold in the morning. It did stop early and the day turned out sunny and a little warmer. I took the yellow SunCoupe to lunch Thursday it was gorgeous out. Glad the weather was nice as the drivers window fell off the track again!
  14. Trading places. I took the yellow 73 SunCoupe off of the lift in the garage and put the Harvest Gold 73 4 speed on it. (It will come out again the beginning of June for the Greenwich Concours.) I then drove the SunCoupe for 20 miles to blow the cob webs out. This Sunday I will take her to the Fairfield Concours D'Caffiene and a 60 mile tour and lunch. If the weather is good I will also take her to the Ct. Cafe Racers lunch in Westport Thursday.
