  1. As came from the factory...
  2. Late 1990s and early 2000s Rav 4s have been known to leak due to poor windshield seal and a variety of other issues. There are plenty of posts online about it. Take a look at the Rav 4 forums for suggested ways to check. Good Luck!
  3. Annie, tell us about the picture of children with blue shirts and red hats... Youth program? Junior judges?
  4. One of "the best kept secrets" on the web... I discovered it in 2007 looking for carb and transmission info.
  5. Team captains are urged to check their class/classes before the judging starts. I assume this is what happened here.
  6. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a great meet! Thanks to the 40 plus HNR members serving on the five teams that worked the show. Thanks to the judges and owners. Impossible to hold a meet without you. Thanks to Tom Cox and the National Board for their support. Thanks to Mel, Dave, John and Wayne who pulled me out of the proverbial ditch more than once. The meet, cruise-in and Autofair had excellent attendance. We try to improve each year. The biggest thing this year was to move the tent to expand judges parking and the approach to the show field. Tomorrow night our board will evaluate and start planning next year. I've got two pages of notes...
  7. Cannot think of a better CJE to be the first! 😁 It was great to meet you Saturday in Charlotte.
  8. Forecast looks good: cool and sunny, best conditions on our show field. If you are coming to judge/show/or both, do yourself a favor: read and follow the directions. Enter from off of Morehead. Do not use the front entrance of the Speedway, please. 😇
  9. It will be interesting to get a ruling on your question. I think Matt "hit the nail on the head" with his "not visible" statement. Look forward to seeing your car at Charlotte!
  10. Young adults and upcoming generation are not all that interested in cars period. Many younger drivers are not as popular as the ones coming to retirement Prices got too high for much of the fan base. Although they are letting kids under 12 in for free now. But if their parents aren't interested... The Southern fan base started declining years ago! And all that has already been said above....
  11. Yes, I'm watching for a couple of others who have let us know...
  12. 50s Chevrolets may have peaked, but 50s Fords seem to be coming up price wise. Trucks of virtually every year and make are on the rise. You can literally build a first generation Camaro out of a catalog, so they will be around for a long time. 60s and early 70s muscle cars are big at car corral's (outside of Hershey). I think we'll see a big decline when people who grew up in the 80s reach retirement, both from a lack of interest and a lack of memorable cars. I've been watching car corral's across the country and many of them have declined over the last five years. Hopefully, it's just the economy. BTW, I'm a decade older than Matthew and still considered "young" in my region. What we all need to do is find persons Matthew's age and younger!
  13. Don't doubt it... Some of the chain hotels have convoluted reservation arrangements. I did tell them I was the meet chair; but in turn, she told me there was no block of rooms left but there were rooms available. It always pays to ask the same question about "rooms for the AACA meet" in several different ways.... BTW, stop by the show field tent when you arrive and say Hi.
  14. 63... Not an expert, but I think 63 had round front signals and 64 did not.
