  1. Had the '39 out several times in the past week, and a couple of photos are attached. The Buick at Farmers Branch Historical Park parking lot, their sign, and the mileage on the speedo (not the swim suit) when i got home.
  2. Might try a small squirt of WD40 to see if it will unglue it.
  3. Sent you a Private Message concerning our AACA group. John V.
  4. Our local AACA group had our Spring Tune-Up Tour Sunday, 19 cars and 43 people. Met at Texas Motor Speedway and then toured back roads toward Decatur, where we stopped at the NRS (National Ropers Supply) for lunch and a brief business meeting. Logged about 130 miles on the '39 Buick.
  5. Took the Coupe to the AACA meeting last Sunday. Meeting was at The Pump House at White Rock Lake - old Dallas Water Department pump house.
  6. Welcome, great to have another '39 on the Forum - we like to help if any is needed. Also, we require photos! John V.
