  1. ODMA 2018 Old Dominion Meet - 27-28 April 2018

    Registration has been extended until Monday April 16th. Matt
  2. Southeastern National Spring Meet, April 7

    The corral was like this last year too. New vehicles mixed in with old. The corral should be limited to AACA eligible vehicles only. There is a distinct line between Hershey and Charlotte, with Hershey catering more to the antique and brass folks while Charlotte caters more to the newer stuff. Both of these annual meets are well run and well attended, it's all a matter of what you're looking for and what you're expecting out of it. Matt

    Nice pics, thanks for sharing! Matt
  4. Southeastern National Spring Meet, April 7

    James, You have a nice looking GT fastback! Looks like you were in a nice gathering of Mustangs; 2 fastbacks, a coupe and a convertible and all different colors too! Nice to hear you drove it there and back. Here is a pic of my '65 Caspian Blue coupe. Matt
  5. National Meets - Eastern Spring - Gettysburg

    The host hotel is the site for both the showfield and trailer parking. It says the hotel boasts over 1000 parking spaces. I can see where it would be confusing since the self-contained motorhome and trailer parking were combined under 1 column but trailer parking is at the host hotel. Matt
  6. TRAACA Lunch Fun Run

    Twenty TRAACA members took advantage of the seasonably warm weather this past Sunday and organized a lunch fun run to exercise our antique cars, and enjoy a nice lunch together. We met at a familiar meeting location, and after a brief drivers meeting, hit the country backroads of Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, passing through the small communities of Creeds and Pungo. We all enjoyed a relaxed, scenic, leisurely, 30 mile drive through the countryside, enjoying the blue skies and warm weather. We had eleven vehicles that participated, including: a '41 Packard, '47 Packard, '50 Chevy, '55 Buick Century, '65 Mercury Comet, '68 Ford LTD, '73 MGB GT, '74 MGB, '78 MGB GT, '84 Buick Riviera, and '85 Ford Crown Victoria.
  7. ODMA Fall Tour

    The Old Dominion Meet Association (ODMA) held their 1st annual fall tour on Saturday November 11th. There were approximately 64 people who participated in the driving tour Saturday. The host hotel was the Country Inn and Suites in Ashland, VA. We all enjoyed a nice pizza social Friday night in the hotel. Saturday's tour started at 8AM as we departed the host hotel for a leisurely drive across the back roads of Hanover County, New Kent County, Charles City County, and Prince George County. We crossed the James River via the Benjamin Harrison Memorial Bridge and drove into City Point, Hopewell for our first stop and tour of the Eppes family 18th century plantation which served as General Grant's headquarters during the Civil War. City Point was an important and strategical location during the Civil War as it was at the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers and already had an established railroad. Then we made our way to Weston Plantation also built in the 18th century where we received a formal tour of the 2 story home and enjoyed a nice lunch in the basement. There's a story with this home in that a civil war era cannon ball was fired into the home and remained there for over 100 years until the 1970's when it fell through the ceiling! Luckily no one was injured. The bomb was removed from the home and detonated at FT. Lee! Imagine a live round in your home for over 100 years! After our tour here some folks departed for home while others enjoyed more socializing at the host hotel prior to our 5PM dinner at the Richmond Car Museum. Many thanks to the Richmond Region for hosting this years tour. We hope this becomes an annual activity for ODMA.
  8. That's a nice color combo, white w/ red interior. Even nicer that you purchased from the original owner, original paint and have the window sticker! Sounds like a good HPOF candidate to me! Matt
  9. Hello Mike. What do you mean by registration regarding the 4F07C VIN? The piece of paper registration card? You want to go by what ever VIN is stamped on the inner fender driver side. If you remove the pass. side fender you will also find a VIN stamping there. What does the data plate say on the drivers door? Does the VIN on the door data plate match the VIN on the inner fender? It is common to find VIN mis-stamps on these cars. The 9 25 D3 would decode as: September 25th Dearborn 3rd shift. The 4J17W would decode as: 1964 October 17th specific work shift. I have a '65 Mustang coupe w/ VIN 5F07C395128, so our 2 cars are only 90,039 units apart! When I bought mine it did not have the right door data plate as the drivers door had been replaced at some point before I bought it but based on my VIN I am able to approximate the build date of mine to be around January 15th, 1965. What does your door data plate say? Like I said earlier if the VIN on that plate matches the VIN on the inner fender then your golden. Let us know what you find! Matt

  12. 1977 Mercury Marquis Colony Park

    I would check the gear teeth on the motor and window mechanism to ensure the teeth are not stripped. Door window motor mechanisms suffer the same problem, over time those gear teeth just get stripped and worn out or broken causing the window to have problems going up. Matt
  13. 1987 Motorcraft Wire and Cable Catalog

    ok thanks Harold. No just was curious if you had '91 or newer. I have a '91 Grand Marquis and I've never seen these particular catalogs before. thanks, Matt
  14. 1987 Motorcraft Wire and Cable Catalog
