  1. I was approached today by a neighbor who works at a National parts store. He has a customer who needs tune up parts for a 1960 Morris sedan. I know very little about them, But I told him, I would try here to see if anyone could suggest where to get quality parts. He is not interested in any Chinese knock offs. Thanks!!
  2. I'll tell you what Marty, you come next year and bring the Corvair, and we will name it an "honarary" Crosley!!
  3. I thought people might be interested in what has happened with Crosley Nationals. Like many (most) National meets and shows, we have been forced to cancel. The restrictions placed on having a show (less than 200 people, distancing, masks, cancellation of many of our activities, keeping a list of attendees to surrender to health dept. on demand, and still the risk of being shut down with no notice), were far more than we felt we could tolerate and still have a fun time. As a result, we have decided to have a "virtual" on line show. The on line show is limited to Crosley Auto Club members and will be divided up in our normal show classes and have a picture of each car posted to be voted on by the participants. We are in the registration phase now and if anyone is out there that isn't a club member and is interested there is still time to join and participate. Trophies will be awarded to the highest vote getters in each class. Entrants will be required to pre register in order to submit their pictures and receive a ballot to vote. Everyone will be able to view the show at www.crosleyautoclub.com from July 11 to 13th. There will also be a number of demonstrations and seminars recorded and put on the site for anyone to view. We hope that this will help to hold our group together for a year until we can meet again. Please feel free to copy any ideas you see there for your club. If we can help with anything , feel free to ask!!
  4. My favorite says "My wife says if I buy one more Crosley, she's going to leave me. I'm sure going to miss her".
  5. I wanted to compliment our Cape Canaveral President Walt Kostrzewa for his novel idea to serve our members during isolation. Walt took the time to set up a camera and hold a meeting and record it, then loaded it on You Tube. He then sent out an email to all members with the location of the recording so everyone could see it!! It was well done, interesting, and informative. Just an idea for everyone else that will help you to hold your membership together during these difficult times!!
  6. Have any of you ever used an airbrush for a small paint repair? I had to make a repair on a 2 inch by 4 inch area. It requires paint on that area. I thought using an airbrush would allow me to feather in the repaired area easier. Comments?
  7. Our car (1950 Crosley Hotshot Super) was accepted for Amelia Island and we decided we want to do something period correct for costumes for the show. Given that the Hotshot was styled specifically to appeal to GIs who had seen European sportscars during the war, we have settled on recreating the famous "kiss" from VJ day. So now the problem. I have searched the internet to find correct enlisted man's dress blues from the period, either original or reproduction in my size (38 waist ) and a correct period nurses uniform for my wife. Does anyone here have a reliable source? I have looked at a couple from overseas and they have very mixed reviews so I really don't want to take a chance. Thank you in advance!!
  8. Will have an empty trailer going South after Hershey. Pretty much empty pickup bed also. Can haul parts, small car whatever for small fee. For whole load figure gas and a reasonable hotel for 1 night for whole trip.
  9. There are a couple of "climate controlled" storage facilities here in Palm Bay

    Tire Needed

    I am in need of a single 4.50 X 12 Firestone Deluxe Champion tire. Does not need to be perfect but presentable. I need it to complete a set for show. Can pick up at Hershey.
  11. Don't know how knowledgeable, but thanks. We had almost 170 Crosleys on the grounds this year. Record turnout for cars and people, record participation in events, big increase in flea market vendors, increase in banquet attendance, etc. Nothing but superlatives for the meet. Announced the 4th youth project. What a great group of people!! Check the club website www.crosleyautoclub.com
  12. Paul, we have a class for modified at Crosley Nationals. We would love to see it there
  13. John; We retired a year and a half ago from Pa. to Palm Bay. We are a few minutes from rte 95, just off the Atlantic /Coast and the Indian River. The Grant Valkaria area is probably what you are looking for. The Cape Canaveral Region (which we joined) is just North of us and the Vero/Indian River Region just south. A fantastic car culture down here!!. The big problem is that property here moves fast. Don't take too much time making up your mind or it will be gone!! If I can aid you in your search in this area, feel free to contact me. Happy to help!! Dave Anspach
  14. Deb and I and granddaughter Mady were out doing a nature walk today and then a little shopping. We stopped at the local WAWA for a slushie and as we started to leave we see a nice Brass car leaving the pump. I followed the gentleman to his home which ended up being less than a mile from mine. The car was a 1914 Apperson Jackrabbit. The gentleman said he was an AACA life member and he had just finished getting the car back on the road a week ago. He had driven over 100 miles yesterday and today was just going for gas. A great car to see and even greater to see it on the road!. The man stated he loves touring with his car!!. I really admire him. Made a new friend and a new car buddy!!
