  1. 2018 Grand National Registration

    I HAVE SENT THIS THREAD TO THE MEET CHAIRMAN. AS TO THE QUESTION OF WHY NO AGNM JUDGING: LOTS OF FACTORS GO INTO IT INCLUDING THE EXPERIENCE OF THE JUDGING TEAMS, TIME BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THIS MEET WAS DESIGNED TO BE OUR MOST PRESTIGIOUS MEET OF THE YEAR IN TERMS OF THE JUDGING FIELD. IT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY WELL RECEIVED OVER THE YEARS AND SOMETHING THE MAJORITY OF OUR MEMBERS SEEM TO ENJOY. KEN, YOUR QUESTION IS LOGICAL BUT JUST NOTHING THAT ANYONE HAS EVER REQUESTED OF US AT LEAST IN THE 15 YEARS I HAVE BEEN HERE. SORRY FOR THE CAPS...IN A HURRY.

  3. Videos Galore..Some Cool Old Stuff!

    This is only the tip of the iceberg as we have at least a 100 more to add to our You Tube Channel. If you have not seen any of these old videos you are missing out!
  4. Videos Galore..Some Cool Old Stuff!

    https://www.youtube.com/user/TheAACALibrary/videos There are a lot of rare, fun car videos that have been digitized in-house by our terrific library staff! In case you are bored or it is rainy or you are spending time at work dreaming about cars!
  5. Junior membership

    This just points out that each of us CAN make a difference to the future of the hobby. One person at a time. It has been my strong belief that all of us owe a debt to those that came before us and helped us along the path to love these old cars so much. We need to ensure future generations have at least a chance to understand how great the cars and hobby can be. All the doom and gloom guys may be thinking they are realistic but to me if you do nothing then eventually the results will speak for themselves. We are the guardians of not only the cars but automotive history! If we ALL try to get one new person into the hobby we will surely prosper. Enough preaching, We hope your grandson enjoys Wheels and we welcome him enthusiastically to AACA!
  6. AACA will be having their Annual Grand National Meet at the NB Center in 2020. Keith Flickinger is a great friend to AACA and as much as I would like to bust his stones (since that is all we usually do with each other) I will not as this is a very nice video. Thank you to Mr. Bulgari for saving so many great icons of the US auto industry.
  7. What have you learned on the AACA Forum?

    David, your humorous post does point out a lot of things that do occur yet you and others keep coming back! Hmmmm. There might be a case for some serious therapy sessions for some of you! Seriously, as much as I do not like some of the more strident posts that pop up from time to time this forum and all of you do provide some legitimate help to those who do not have your background in the hobby. A LOT of people have been helped by this forum. What I do not like which also was alluded to by Jeff is that we have chased away many professional restorers who use to visit this site but now are gone because their advice was disrespected. No one is infallible but some of these guys have been restoring cars for decades and have a wealth of knowledge that now is lost to this site. The main reason AACA pays a small fortune to continue this site is to help the hobby so let's try from time to time to stay positive despite the occasional misinformed poster!
  8. Here is what I know but first read the flyer. This show will be modeled after Antiques Roadshow. They are looking for cars and/or amazing memorabilia (I assume the rarer the better) which they will pay to be shipped by appropriate car carriers to LA where the shoot will take place. They will fly you out there to tell your story about your car. Here is what you may or may not like: They will ask you to place a value on the car and then have "experts" chime in on the same. Antiques Roadshow meets the Appraisers meets What's My Car Worth. Has to be some serious money behind this show. Once again, do not kill the messenger! I know some of you hate these shows but some DO like them...I just keep passing on opportunities for you guys.
  9. If you could?

    Gosh, I am sure most people would guess what my answer would be. At one time, the former GM at Olds, myself and a group of guys were working on a project in Indianapolis called Motorapolis. Automotive themed park with a small manufacturing facility for building 4-4-2's. Ambitious project, I still have the "prospectus" and may use it for a future story in AA. Needless to say our attempt met with failure despite massive interest by the government agencies and the private sector. GM was not so cooperative.
  10. Thanks and Happy New Year

    On behalf of President Tom Cox, our entire board, our staff and yours truly we want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. We hope the coming year is a healthy one and a great year for the entire old car hobby. Thanks to all of you who support us. While in some ways we may have been a bit quiet these last few months it is only because we are hard at work trying to finalize several new major initiatives for AACA and our members. Our new building is only one and will open up many doors for us. The hobby might be in for a bit of a shock what capabilities we will have when all is said and done. Those of you who use the forums and are not members we still thank you for your participation. The forums here provide a great service to the hobby and that is why the club supports it so well. Please remember that our AACA Library & Research Center with over 2,000,000 items is a great resource and it is also free to the public. More and more people are coming in every day to do research. We hope that some of you will consider joining if nothing else to support our club's mission. Have a safe New Years Eve!!
  11. 1930 GRAHAM COUPE

    We just received a 1930 Graham sedan, dual sidemounts as a donation! Our library may be able to help you if you end up with the car. Good luck.
  12. Estate Planning Question

    Nick, my question is are you really meaning a LLC or is it a Living Trust? you are refering to
  13. Are show cars still historic vehicles

    While I have some very strong reactions to SOME of the reasons behind the trend mentioned in the Hemmings blog (going to have to keep my trap shut on those) I along with most people hope to preserve really original cars. Some cars need restorations and some do not. Some cars are beyond conservation or would require an extraordinary amount of money and talent to protect. Some cars beg to be restored and that is great that so many of you have gone down that road. The facts suggest that a individual can restore a car to the equal of a professional restorer. It is done all the time. We also have cars that compete in AACA that have never been restored and do in fact get their First Junior and Senior. At our "academy awards" in February West Peterson will announce a lot of cars that won national awards that were restored by the owner. I will never understand why we cannot accept that there are all types of car enthusiasts. Rather than be snobbish that my car is perfect and not driven, my car is perfect and it is a driver, my car is original or whatever the case. This is a big hobby and there is room for all types of personal preferences. Why we continue to run down those who have the money to have their car professionally restored is an anathema to me. Why should we care? Not everyone has the talent or time to restore a car. Those with the financial resources to have their cars restored have saved many cars from the scrap yard. AACA has recognized Unrestored cars for several decades, nothing new. Just my opinion.
