  1. I first met Art Griffin in 1984 when he and Arlene were hosting a national meet of the Kaiser Frazer Owners Club in Pigeon Forge, TN. He saw I was registered and I lived nearby. He called me up and asked me to bring my barbeque grill. My first evening as a new member of the club was spent cooking 350 hot dogs. As Art said, it was a quick way to get acquainted with everyone in the club! It was also my introduction to Art Griffin and his "servant" attitude about everything he was involved in. I can honestly say that my life has been enriched greatly by knowing this man. We have had many adventures over the past 32 years and I have been a guest at his home and he at mine. I will miss him as a friend and as a mentor.
  2. Got my mirror hanger for parking today. I am looking forward to Auburn!
  3. I see the mysterious Binford has now appeared in the latest Hemmings under Pre-1916 for sale. And, it now has claims to being owned at one time by Austin Clark. Mr. Clark being one of the authors of the Standard Catalog of American Cars, I think that if it had any legitimacy, it certainly would have been included by him.

    This RHD export now resides in East Tennessee.
  5. I almost bought a Monroe at Hershey some years ago. There is a great color article in an Automobile Quarterly from the early 90's featuring Lloyd & Shirley Young's Monroe in Ohio.
  6. I am a member of the Jordan Club (Register). We have a quarterly newsletter and get together as a group at Hershey on the field on Saturday by one of the Jordans. The address listed above is correct and dues are $ 20.00 per year. There is also an excellent book on the history of the Jordan automobile that was written by Jim Lackey. It is available through almost any automotive bookseller.

    Charlie Adams

    I am very sorry to report that Charlie Adams, member of the AACA National Awards Team/Committee passed away suddenly last Thursday morning. Many of our AACA judges are very familiar with and have judged with Charlie. Charlie was also a past AACA National Director. His funeral will be tomorrow in Newnan, GA.
  8. Many of you, especially those involved in judging, knew Charlie Adams. Charlie passed away suddenly last Thursday morning.

He resided in Cleveland, GA. His funeral will be tomorrow in Newnan, GA at 2:00 PM.
  9. I will echo that the auction driving was a lot of fun! I did not get to drive the Duesenberg, but I got to drive a 1931 Cadillac V-16 limousine - what a handfull that was. It was so quiet running that I had to do like Wayne and look at the gauges to see if it was still running.

  13. It was a really fun weekend - even my 5-year old daughter Jordan is still talking about it. We had the words to the <span style="font-style: italic">Thunder Road </span>song printed in our tour book. Every day, Jordan wants me to sing the song for her. The words to the song <span style="font-weight: bold">must </span>be pretty good, because I certainly can't sing!

    Matthew - that is a very good suggestion. Part of my volunteer position job description is to update the Official Judging Guidelines (manual) each year. There were several similar clarifications made to this year's version (i.e. Safety Glass - we always accepted it, but had never so stated in the guidelines). This is an excellent suggestion and I will add it to the list of things to be discussed/approved by the Class Judging Committee. Thanks! Rick Lay Chairman, Judges Training
