  1. I spent 6th-8th grades in boarding school (another story and probably explains a lot about me) and every weekend it rained we spent the day inside building models and racing slot cars. I built more model cars, planes, and ships than I can remember. I have no idea what happened to them all. What I really miss is the 1/24th-scale Cheetah slot car and Cox pistol-grip controller I had.
  2. I've compiled a list of all the national shows and tours the AACA has hosted since its founding in 1935, and I'm trying to fill in some missing details. Does anyone have any information about the 1948 AACA Steam Meet? It's mentioned in a report on AACA national activities contained in the March 1949 issue of Antique Automobile, but there's no other information about when or where it was held. The best I can come up with is it may have been held in April of 1948. I appreciate any information that can be provided about the Steam Meet (including whether it was e

Thank you very much!

  11. Great article. Marion & I don't have the same history with Hershey as many of you--this would've been our 14th--but it's something we look forward to every year now and it's usually the cap of the AACA car season. Cancellation of this year's Eastern Fall Nationals is disappointing, but we have our health and it will make next year's show & swap meet in Herhsey that much more special. (And it's another chapter for future stories about Hershey: "Remember when Hershey was cancelled in 2020?" It's not quite the same as slogging through mud, but from this point on it will be talked abo
  12. Like many other people, I was disappointed to hear that this year's ODMA Fall Tour (originally scheduled for October) had to be cancelled and now the ODMA Old Dominion Meet (originally scheduled for 7 November) now also has to be cancelled, but I understand the reasons. My thanks to both the Shenandoah Region and the Roanoke Valley Region, for all their work planning and organizing what would've been great activities. Marion & I look forward to attending the rescheduled events next year. For AACA members unfamiliar with the ODMA, it was established in 1953 and became a charte
  13. Hello Paul. Both Coker and Universal offer reproduction radial tires from the pre-low profile/P-metric tires era--both early radial tires (e.g., 195R14) and letter-series radial tires (e.g., GR78x14). (As the AACA Official Judging Guidelines state, P-metric radial tires began appearing on domestic-manufactured vehicles in approximately 1979, although they were available earlier on foreign manufactured vehicles.) What size radial tires does the owner's manual for your Cutlass say were available from the factory for your car? If reproductions of those tires are available for sale,
