  1. For what it's worth, I tried a set of the e-light kits from Egypt garage on my 29 Model A Sedan. Could not ever get them to work properly when hooked up in the car. Worked fine with the remote in your hand standing behind the car but would never reliably activate or cancel when the remote was attached to the steering column. Jim Davis was super nice and sent me a second set and then eventually refunded my money when we couldn't get it to work. They may work fine on an open car but I think the range just isn't strong enough for a closed car. It is a bicycle turn signal set with nice brackets for mounting the remote and the base.
  2. For those who were wondering, the host hotel lists "free valet parking" on their website, I called them and they said they would have designated self parking for those of us driving show cars in. And she said it wasn't going to rain !
  3. Annie- Dad and I will be there with his 77 Pontiac Grand Prix. Looking forward to it!
  4. I have it on good authority that the wind speed this year will be less than a "gale".
  5. Boooooooooooooo! The HPOF class will have a huge hole in it without that Suburban!!
  6. I will echo everyone else's comments above, please do not allow the actions and situation in the Uptown area of Charlotte keep you from coming. The Speedway is over 20 miles from the Uptown area and in a different county. The weather looks great for the weekend- Bring sunscreen for Saturday!
  7. I just went thru this exercise in NC. The efficiency will make you lose your mind. Once you purchase the Antique plate from the DMV (State), you have to file it with the County tax office in order to receive the $500 valuation in future years. In the last year, the tax value on my 73 Cadillac was doubled, so I should realize some savings going forward.
  8. Great photos Annie! Hate we missed you yesterday, it was a crazy day for us, had to bring the boys with us when our sitter got sick. Hope everyone is over the wind burn by now.
  9. The black license plate is how I mounted mine on the 88 Mustang. Not enough grill on this car to mount there.
  10. Beleive you are correct. Thanks for steering me the right way.

    I believe this is a Nash, judging by the lines of the rear and trunk area. Anyone care to help with a year? I'm thinking around 36-38 but without being able to see the front. The folks in the photo are my wife's great grandparents.
  12. My late grandmother's 1992 Cadillac Fleetwood. It was 3 years old at the time. It's sitting in my garage as I type this with 72K miles on the clock, and I'm driving it right into HPOF come 2017!
  13. The Ford dealer in Sanford NC used to be called SanFord, with some impressive knock offs of the blue oval.
  14. I agree. Seems like I read it was one of the highest revenue producing shows for the BBC. I much preferred the British version over the American one. Wouldn't surprise me to see all three of the hosts wind up on a cable network doing nearly the same thing.
