    ODMA 2018 Fall Tour

    Looked good Mark. We were also unable to attend as we were on the Sentimental Tour in Natchez this past week. Maybe ODMA can avoid conflicts in the future? Thanks for the pictures. Wayne

    Great article Pedro. The Leshers are always on the leading edge of thought. I wonder who trained her?😁

    Knock-off wheel removal

    This comment has nothing to do with Cobras, but my 1965 Corvette has knockoffs and I had never changed my tires after purchase when I had "an occurance"! On the show field many years ago, "an educated" car show participant suggested that I should probably retighten the knockoffs on my car. Of course thinking about it all the way back home, I decided to do just that. The next week I went all around the car and retightened all of them. The next week was a local car show, and on the way down, the right rear wheel tried to come off my car. After fixing this, the next week I checked all of the wheels again, and upon taking the "hubcap" off I noticed little slots all around the inner part of the knockoff and the hub. Unnoticed by me were the "lock-slots" put in each wheel with "pins" that you would put in the nearest location to "lock the knockoff". DUH! I had broken one off as I retightened without first pulling the "pin". Live and learn! So called car show experts are not what they are cracked up to be! :-)

    Do You Like Bugatti's? Interesting read!

    * * Thanks John. I found it very interesting to read about a family that gives back and also shares with the public. I think it is great that these cars get driven. The article could also maybe get a new person interested in our hobby, which is what we are all about. That's also what is cool about our DPC classes on the show field. Proves that they do not have to be perfect to be enjoyed. Take care, Wayne

    Please notice the wheel chocks in the first picture. Those would have prevented a catastrophe at another big southern event a couple years ago. Antique vehicles do not handle water well.

    You go Earl. I Don't like change either, so here in Virginia, I deal with banks that will hand me money with my name on a napkin if I need it.

    They do indeed, lots of templates. Would be a good seminar in Philly this February. 😉

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO EDITORS

    I did not agree with the decision either. I will say that the newsletter review crew does not get that many monthly issues though, only about 30 to 40 during my time handling it. I even had one team member say they had to put up 2 pc screens to be able to review online newsletters and post results at the same time. I just hope this decision does not turn away prospective team members.

    2018 Reliability Tour

    John Kucko Digital Americana on Wheels: Enjoy 65 seconds of pure nostalgia today through the Finger Lakes Region. The Blue Water Ramble is a five day road rally featuring pre-1916 cars. Participants came from all over America to partake in this journey along the Finger Lakes, Erie Canal and Lake Ontario. The event is put on by the Antique Automobile Club of America, as well as the Horseless Carriage Club of America. I first caught up with these folks in Geneva early this morning, followed them to Newark, then on Brantling Hill Road on their way to Sodus Bay. This was one of the more enjoyable videos I have done in a while. Thank you to Kay Peck for the heads up, as well as Pam Heald for all the logistics help. A fitting experience on this “Throwback Thursday”.Antique Automobile Club of America A special thank you to John Kucko Digital for this post!

    Cool pictures I stole off of Facebook. I am sure you will recognize Steve and Pamela. Did you guys know that Terry Bond also does seminars on tours. Never a dull moment when Terry is around. Of course we all know Oggy, the famous back seat driver? Enjoy! Wayne
  24. Fred Trusty's article is great, my kind of writer. I think all in our era had similar experiences. Great job Fred.
