  1. Always happy to talk with a fellow Oldsmobile owner. Especially with one who has such a beautiful '32 that I was able to follow through the restoration. Tim
  2. Joel, This '67 GTX looks beautiful especially as a "survivor". If you are looking to show it at Hershey, here is a link from the AACA website that explains details about how to register: https://www.aaca.org/images/judge/important_judging_meet_information.pdf Also, here is a link to the Hershey show brochure: https://www.aaca.org/images/meet_brochures/2021/2021_HERSHEY_FALL_MEET_BROCHURE.pdf Registration deadline for Hershey is August 15th.

  3. I was very glad to finally get the see this beautiful car on Saturday and have a chance to meet you. It truly is an amazing piece of work on your part. As I said on Saturday, it was so much fun to follow your progress on this forum and then to actually get to see the finished product. Congratulations on your success with it so far and I am sure there will be much more for it in the future. Tim
  4. Bill, Your guess is correct, the winner of the 2021 Zenith Award was the 1917 Locomobile 48 Sportif Victoria by Farnham-Nelson owned by John McAlpin. Runner-up was the 1930 Ruxton Model C by Rauch & Lang owned by Cal and Dave High. Here is a picture of the beautiful trophy. Bob, The Zenith Award started in 2017 at the Annual Grand National in Independence, MO. Tim
  5. Sorry you can't make it on Saturday. I think it will be a wonderful show!! Tim
  6. Hi Joel, Nice looking DeSoto. Unfortunately, the actual show (the Grand National) in New Ulm is on Saturday. Friday, they will have the competition for the Zenith award which is the award for the best restoration of the year for 2020. It will be cars chosen from shows held last year that were the best of each show. I believe there will be 18 cars in that competition. That will be held in the New Ulm Civic Center and will have judging starting at 10 am with awards given between 4 - 5 pm. So, by only going on Friday, you will not see the majority of the cars going to the Grand National because they do not get placed on the show field until beginning at 7 on Saturday. Tim
  7. carfem, If you look at the Official Judging Guidelines: https://www.aaca.org/images/judge/2020_Judging_Guidelines.pdf the factory High Performance vehicles are in Class 36 (starting on page 4-17) 36. FACTORY HIGH PERFORMANCE VEHICLES The Factory High Performance class has been developed especially for performance oriented domestic vehicles, from their beginnings in the 1950s thru their "heyday" of the late 1960s and early 1970s and on. Eligibility for vehicles in this category is evaluated on a case by case basis, taking into consideration individual merits such as weight to horsepower ratio, the manufacturer's actual intent, 4-18 and the era in which the vehicle was built. These are just a few of the qualifying points of consideration. This class is a work in progress and will continue to develop over time. Applications for additional vehicles to be added to the existing list of accepted vehicles must be submitted in writing, along with any accompanying factory documentation, to the VP Judging for review by the Specified Class Committee (SCC), which will make a recommendation to the Judging Committee. The name and address of the VP Judging can be found in each issue of the Antique Automobile. Always check AACA Headquarters for the most current listing of accepted vehicles in this class. NOTE: "v" refers to carburetor barrels. 36B Is for Chevrolet: 36B.

  8. Yes, if you send a SASE to: Chuck Crane VP Judging 87 Old CCC Rd. Hendersonville, NC 28739 He will send you a listing of the areas of deduction. However, the actual points deducted will not be noted.
  9. Wow, that is a wonderful story. Thanks for sharing this Steve. Tim
  10. Billy, Glad to hear that you had a great time at Saratoga today. I have very much enjoyed all AACA shows that I have attended and you will always get to see vehicles that you probably will not see elsewhere. As Ted noted, there is no Best in Show at an AACA show however, at each AACA meet, 2 vehicles are selected for the Zenith Award competition for next year's Grand National Show the following year. Thus, 2 vehicles from today's show were selected to compete for the 2022 Zenith Award competition. Tim
  11. Thanks Steve for the comment. Like your nice '86 Monte SS, I purchased this off the showroom floor about 6 months after beginning my first "real" job. Otherwise, I would not have been able to swing the payments and insurance. Tim
  12. Here is a picture of me with my '83 Hurst on March 27, 1983, the day after I picked it up brand new. Here is another picture taken last year, 37 years after I purchased it. Thanks, Tim
  13. Hi Ellagee, I remembered seeing one of those at the 2018 Grand National in Greensburg, PA. I looked it up and that one was entered in 25E. Class 25E First Grand National 1970 Datsun 240Z.....Paul Taylor, Dover, DE So, I would guess yours would be the same. Tim
  14. The Big White almost looks too wide to go down this road. I would hate to be driving the other way and meet it. Been fun hearing the recovery of this great car. Thanks for recovering it Ed. Tim
  15. Here is a link to the brochure for the AACA/Buick Meet in Auburn, IN: https://www.aaca.org/images/meet_brochures/2021/2021_Auburn_Brochure.pdf Tim
