  1. Wow! Thank you all so much for sharing such wonderful photographs. To everyone else, feel free to keep on sending them!
  2. Hi Everyone! AACA's Junior Member publication, Wheels, is looking for ways to liven up its content for kids. Inspired by a recent thread on the forums, we would like to include a section with pictures of children enjoying the old car hobby, whether it's sitting behind the wheel of their parents'/grandparents' favorite ride or helping out with grandpa or grandma's latest restoration. Children featured in Wheels will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine. If you think you have a great photo for the magazine, please feel free to share it here or email it to the editor, Matthew Hocker via: mhocker@aaca.org In order for a photograph to be featured in Wheels, we will need the following: 1. Your permission to publish your photograph in Wheels. 2. Your child/grandchild's name (full name or first name) 3. Your child/grandchild's age 4. Your child's state of residence 5. A brief description of the photograph (ie: make and model year of car, description of what they are doing, etc.) If you have a cool story associated with the photograph or enjoying the hobby with your child/grandchild, we would also be open to featuring your story as its own article! Find out more: If you have any questions about our Junior Membership, Wheels, etc. please contact Matthew Hocker at mhocker@aaca.org or by phone (Mon.-Fri. 8 AM-4 PM EST) via the following number: 717-534-2082 For more information on the Junior Membership program, please refer to our website.
  3. Hello everyone, Did you know AACA has a junior membership program for children up to age 12? Junior memberships are $10 per year and come with a subscription to Wheels, the junior member newsletter/magazine. This magazine is published quarterly and consists of historical write-ups, activity pages, and much more. We are looking for contributors to the junior member magazine. In addition to being a librarian, I am also the editor for Wheels. We are looking for articles, drawings, etc. - anything that might be of interest to kids. Do you have a personal story about the hobby? Do you want to write about your first car? Looking to share your experiences of touring with your grandkids? We are interested in any content submissions you might have. Since the magazine is written for children, we would also like to see more content submissions from kids. Have any children or grandchildren interested in contributing to Wheels? If so, please let me know. We would love to see articles, drawings, stories, photographs of your kids/grandkids with antique cars, etc. By contributing content to Wheels you will be inspiring the restorers of tomorrow. Anyone with a published submission will receive a complimentary copy of Wheels. For more details, please contact Matthew Hocker: email: mhocker@aaca.org phone: 717-534-2082

  13. Hi, I am one of the librarians working for the AACA Library & Research Center. We do not appear to have material pertaining to this artist, although we do have files on a few automotive artists (ie: A. Radebaugh & A. Kow). It might be worth your while to reach out to the National Library of France. A good starting point might be art encyclopedias: http://www.bnf.fr/en/tools/a.welcome_to_the_bnf.html If you do find out anything further, please feel free to pass on your findings to the AACA Library because we would be happy to start a file on this artist. Best of luck with your hunt! Regards, Matthew Hocker
