  1. My fav part of the actual car show on Saturday is at 3pm when the parade of cars leaving rolls by! To see all these works of art move, smell them, hear them, and see the delight of the owners face as people say "cool car, nice car, and wow look at that one!" and the drivers/owners hear them! THAT is my fav part of the show!!!!
  2. good points.....makes sense and Now I understand a little better!
  3. I agree, thatโ€™s the way I am going to go.... thanks for the input everyone
  4. I was able to pick up a correct speedometer for our โ€˜27. I found two but the second one had already been opened up and anything worth anything removed and then someone threw what was left over back into it and closed it back up, cracked lens, distorted bezel, and loose odometer reset knob and all!!!! I think they were the only two in the entire place that hadnโ€™t sold yet, I looked at every single vendor site across three days skipping not one vendor and I taught my wife that if a vendor had a glass display cabinet to pay particular attention as it normally has something of value in it, thus something we might be looking for like a speedometer! I also purchased two online so I am hoping to get a good part and along with Hugh replicate the parts we need to make working speedos! As far as hershey, We got the Speedo, two Briggs and Stratton Key Blanks for the transmission lock, and visited Bobโ€™s to get plug wires and correct band clamps for the rebuilt water pump we just finished up! ^Happy Camper here!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ Ps. Hershey could use a good old fashion wet T-shirt competition! Whoโ€™s with me on starting a petition to start one? Ok ladies men can participate too but way way way far away from any humans at this show!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I kid kid I kid....
  5. I saw you standing talking to Mr. Engle, I was going to say hello and introduce myself but didnโ€™t want to interrupt you guys chatting it up. particularly about his email address and his Buick overalls๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. According to the program the swap meet is all day Saturday too, nothing with the car show would prevent the vendors from vending!
  7. Just curious why the Hershey show program says the swap meet/yard sale is going on all day Saturday as well as the show but 70-80% of the vendors are already gone? If I am a vendor, unless Iโ€™ve sold all my goods or have minimal stuff left to sell, why wouldnโ€™t I take the opportunity to sell my loot on Saturday as well since the car show brings in some prospective buyers!?? Last year I went to the swap meet on Weds with my Son, told my Wife how amazing it was and then took her to the show on Saturday rambling on about how amazing the swap meet was and I couldnโ€™t wait to show her! I know last year brought some bad weather so to my surprise when we arrived that Saturday (2018) the kits were nearly empty!! So this year I took her to the swap meet Thursday (Weds I was hoofing it alone and got more accomplished though not as fun as being w someone as pretty as the Mrs!๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ), so she could really see the swap meet in action and she was blown away!! But again, why do vendors not seize this opportunity to sell on Saturday too?
  8. We had an awesome time this year at Hershey! Hope all found parts they were looking for, meet ups and introductions they were looking forward to, and awards they were hoping for! Till next year Hershey..... ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ
  9. On my way now๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ!!! about a two hour drive but leaving now and canโ€™t wait, rain or shine Hershey is mine!!
  10. Anyone have any AC speedometers for my 1927 Buick Model 27 (27/27)?? Please let me know by PM if you do....
  11. Come on tomorrow!!!!! I canโ€™t wait till tomorrow morning alarm goes off, I should be there around 8am so save some good loot for me too!! And tomorrow I am going to now be by myself so I can take my sweet lil old time and actually take my time to look at all the cool stuff and take it all in!!! My lovely wife will be with me on Thursday and Saturday, she went with me last year on Saturday for the car show and loved it but missed all the cool swap meet loot so I canโ€™t wait for her to see how cool it is on Thursday at the swap meet!!! She has never seen anything quite like it! I hope everyone has a safe trip in to Hershey and finds everything they are looking for, well unless I am also looking for the same parts so in that case I hope you miss everything I need for my car by accident!!!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ seriously, leave the good stuff I need for me....no seriously, I am serious.๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ
  12. Come on tomorrow morning!!!!!!! I canโ€™t wait!!! see you all there, save me some good parts, I wonโ€™t be there till 8am!!! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  13. I am hoping you are correct in the windows, I thought for sure the mechanism itself is what is corroded and frozen, I know the handles are pot metal and I am fine getting new ones, I will try to remove the windshield crank handle and see if I can crank the windshield up before I take the header apart!! I planned on getting all new interior handles this Winter anyway! I will be at Hershey Weds, Thursday, and Saturday for the car show itโ€™s self as well! Iโ€™m just looking for a few things at the swap meet Weds and Thursday but going mostly for fun, I always enjoy the hunt!!!
  14. Hey C Carl that brings me to another question, I noticed your car, as does mine, has TWO inside rear view mirrors?? why? i thought my second one was probably one added by a prev owner or something?
  15. Cool, yes my front windshield is SUPPOSED TO CRANK UP, it doesnโ€™t currently as itโ€™s frozen in place but itโ€™s supposed to! Thatโ€™s actually one of my Winter projects, to get all Window locations to should crank up and down to do so! Currently only the two front side windows move! If I hold the inside and outside of the windshield I can slightly move the glass itโ€™s self but the crank is frozen in place and snapped off! Itโ€™s my goal to remove the door panels/cards and he front and rear seat and work on the interior and window mechanisms to get everything working as it should! And replace all the rubber in the car!!!! And remove and restore the dash. And R&R the inside window trim panels! And And And! There are plenty more โ€œAnd....โ€ as with a typical car project!!!
