  1. Sorry to read the news about Mr. Myer. He was one of the best.
  2. Looking for 4 stock wheels to fit 1949 Plymouth email bruce@chesapeaketesting,com Thanks.
  3. Looking for 4 stock wheels that fit 1949 Plymouth sedan. Im not sure what other years and makes are the same. Dont need to be perfect, just straight and usable. Also clips for hubcaps. Thanks. Bruce bruce@chesapeaketesting.com
  4. Need two of the original pinch type wire hose clamps that holds the short (approx. 2 inches long) hose between the bypass hose inlet and the thermostat housing on 1949 Plymouth flathead 6 engine (possibly other years and other MOPARS too). These expand by squeezing the ends of the clamp together. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks. Bruce Wheeler bruce@chesapeaketesting.com
  5. Graham, I appreciate the additional informaton you provided. Thanks
  6. This is the first time I have had a car registered for the Hershey Meet. I have to agree with stock_steve, the judges that evaluated my car in the HPOF class were very courteous and respectful of the car., and following the inspection, each of the team members expressed thanks for bringing out the car. As for attendance I have to say I saw nothing but throngs of people in front of me when the National anthem was being played. I have no idea how many were behind me. All those hundreds, perhaps thousands of people in front of me and each and every one was quiet and paying respect to the flag as the anthem was being played. There were a few behind me still talking when it started but the place quickly quieted down to complete silence. It was a very touching sight.
  7. Im hoping to bring my 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe to get its HPOF certification at Hershey. The car was my mom and dad's and mom gave it to me just before dad passed away last year. I had hoped to get the HPOF while dad was still alive but didnt get a chance to. Everything except the tires appears to be original. Its a great driver and has been on numerous regional size tours in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
  8. I'm looking for the base (for lack of a better word) for a cigarette lighter for my 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe. I have a cigarette lighter element and knob but need the base that mounts into the dash and the element slides into. I'm not really worried if it doesn't have an electrical cord as I dont need a functional lighter. I can be reached via email at bruce@chesapeatesting.com To Scott - Thanks very much for sending the 1949 Plymouth glove box lock. Its a great piece and I would probably not be able to find a better price for it anywhere lol. I really appreciate it and I will keep you in mind if I come across a lug wrench.
  9. The Shenandoah Region AACA did a great job with the meet. The Early Bird Tour and Reception on Friday were fun as well as the show on Saturday. We attended the meet for many years in the past but haven't for the past several years. I am glad we decided to start attending this event's activities again and participated on both Friday and Saturday. Congratulations to the Shenandoah Region AACA for a well done job!
  10. Di and I had a great time at the Apple Blossom Meet. We attended this event for many years in the past in our 1931 Ford, driving down on Saturday morning, but there were a number of years where it rained heavy and we didn't attend. This year we decided to drive our all original 1949 Plymouth down early on Friday and participate in the Early Bird tour and later at the Early Bird Reception at the hotel. We had never been to the Friday events and didn't know what to expect. We had a fun time at both events on Friday and at the show on Saturday. It was great to be back at Jim Burnett Park again for the meet. Kudos to the Shenandoah Region for a great event!
  11. Need glovebox latch for 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe. Mine came apart and I think is missing the spring. Have other parts plus the chrome knob but not sure how it goes together. Would be interested in complete latch if available or spring and diagram of how it goes together. I can be reached at bruce@chesapeaketesting.com
  12. 1935 Ford Phaeton, flathead V8, 3 speed. Really nice car. Recently had carburetor kit and new battery installed. Runs and drives great. Asking $35,000. Price is negotiable. The car is owned by my boss for whom I am posting this thread at his request. For more information, you can contact Jim Foulk directly during the day at 410-297-8154 or feel free to email me anytime at bruce@chesapeaketesting.com.
  13. not a musical jingle.... ...but I remember when as a little kid I would see the television advertisements for Jerrys Chevrolet, at the time probably one of the largest Chevrolet dealerships in Baltimore. The ads would always finish with an official sounding voice saying "Jerry's Chevrolet.. A Factory Authorized Distribution Center." It went on for years and sounded quite impressive, making many people think there was something extra special about the dealership..... until someone publicly pointed out what should probably have been obvious.... that every dealership is a distribution center authorized by the automobile brand company! It wasn't long before the television advertisements quit using that little piece of information.
  14. West appears to be correct. The Internet Movie Car Database http://www.imcdb.org/movie.php?id=56592 lists five cars used in To Kill a Mockingbird. Only one of those is a touring and used by by a main character and that is a 1928 Chevrolet touring car. The other cars listed/shown are mostly sedans and a coupe used for brief drive-by or a single scene. Attached is the photo from IMCDB
  15. Registration information is available on the Hershey Region web site at this URL: Hershey Region AACA: Fall Meet Vendors & Registration
