    Vintage Glidden tour pennants

    I went to the Oklahoma City Glidden. My wife and I managed 3 days of the tour and went home. My car did fine and had no issues. I know that a great deal of planning and hard work went into this tour. But having a "metropolitan" tour in a "town" of almost 600,000 population turned out for us to be very stressful and not fun fighting the traffic. We enjoy back road touring where we can run our car without the constant stop and go traffic lite and stop signs we had to do on this tour.....

    I "Give UP"

    Well after 30 years in the "Great CCCA" I will not send in my money to renew. I went to alot of meetings over the years to try to get this club to think about keeping it's function prices down but have only met with lip service. My wife and I have been on over 15 Caravans ,several Grand Classics and National meets so we have tried to support this club. But I don't believe this club is supporting the average rank and file member (non-rich) and probably never has. We send in our dues that support this club which are twice what other National Clubs pay. We pay a hefty fee to have the right then to pay another hefty fee to go on a National Tour (Caravan). No other club does that that we are awhere of ...... So I say enough. I miss all the old timers who have passed away from the Caravans. They made them so special. I miss having Beverly as Editor, for she really cared about showing all aspects of this club and hobby, not just the "top teir"...........Member 2510.......done

    Serious Problems with the CCCA Membership Meet in 2013

    To Al; I to was not envolved with the founding of the CCCA. I was not out of diapers when all that happend. But these things about these wonderful cars and great people I first met nearly 30 yrs ago is why I joined . My wife and I have done many Caravans over the last 20 years. I would like to do more ,but if I am having money issues (I owe nothing and own all my posessions out-right) how will the youngsters 25- 45 yr old aford these tours? That is my question to you Al.......I thought that the cars and the people were the issue at hand not the fancy locations. I was on the Georgia Caravan and I liked the hub tour . And as a Hub tour members could find a hotel -motel in their price range. And promote the club by sharing rides on the tour days.The progressive tours can make that hard to do some times......So if you think I am critizing the club for a lack of empathy may be right.......

    Unique 1940 Sixty Special COUPE

    I got out my Cadillac book written by Maurice Hendry. In it he lists the models of 6019's. for 1940 number of what was manufactured. 6019S sedan 4 Door (4,242 )...6019SA Sunroof Sedan 4 Door (230).....6019F Imperial Sedan (110) and 6019AF Imperial Sedan Sun Roof (3)....I see no Two Doors listed....... 6019 is a four door semi-custom model line..... Many pictures would be great as it could shine a light on this car........

    Nickel Tours

    :Bill Thankyou for your persective and information. We are in the southern central area of Mo. near Branson. An interesting area to visit but not as an "OLD" car tour (not flat ). Have been looking at central Mo. along the Missouri river. We have a local tour with the KC group to eastern Kansas . More areas to look at........Dan Dinsmore

    Nickel Tours

    I have not been on an VMCCA Nickel tour before and was wondering when the last one was put on and by who. My wife and I are kicking around the idea of putting one on. It would be great to get the insight and avoid the pitfalls from other tour chairpersons. I understand that less challenging tour routes(Flatter) and less miles with alot of interesting stops would be welcomed on such a tour. Five days put on during the week ? We are all ears..........dan & gracie
