  1. I think we are now a generation removed from people selling cars that never knew what a 5 digit odometer was. I tend to start fights in Facebook groups when someone clearly has a vehicle with 100k or 200k miles being advertised as only having “57k original miles”. Sure dude. That worn out floor mat and seat springs sticking thru the duct tape upholstery begs to differ.
  2. Can you purchase a surety bond to indemnify the DMV? North Carolina requires this now in situations such as yours. They will also issue a unique “NC vin” to the vehicle when there is a questionable (in their eyes) situation.
  3. We visited the museum several years ago and he took my then 6 year old son on a ride around the parking lot in a sidecar of an old motorcycle. He still remembers that and he just turned 12. dale was a great guy.
  4. Luggage trunk for a higher end car. Not sure of brand. 36Lx 16.5Wx 19H. Located near Charlotte NC, or can deliver to Charlotte Nationals in April. $200 obo.
  5. 19 years ago this past June with my dads Model A. My brother and sister used it in their weddings as well.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 !
  8. Annie- Dad and I will be there with his 77 Pontiac Grand Prix. Looking forward to it!
  9. I have it on good authority that the wind speed this year will be less than a "gale".
  10. Boooooooooooooo! The HPOF class will have a huge hole in it without that Suburban!!
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. The black license plate is how I mounted mine on the 88 Mustang. Not enough grill on this car to mount there.
