  2. Yes, it's NC Law. Like I said, it is splitting hairs but the NC law requires the plate to be in the vehicle.
  3. I know of several years, things being stolen at Hershey. My nieghbor last year was one of those victims. And i think it was the year before, it was the neighbor on the other side of me that had a thieft.
  4. 1. it is so far under the set the interior judge would have to be in the car to see it. not much room between seat and floor. 2. HPOF car. But yeah, if it was in a judged class, it would be advisable to remove it from the car. 3. it is splitting hairs but the law does require it to be in the vehicle, so I would consider it the same as the tag being mounted to the bumper. Section 1. G. S. 20-63 (d) "Any motor vehicle of the age of 35 years or more from the date of manufacture may bear the license plates of the year of manufacture instead of the current registration plates, if the current regis
  5. if it is the current tag i'd say no. if it is the one issued you by the state, the state mandates you have it displayed, you as the owner can't do a whole lot about it's condition. (other than get new tag from DMV) if you are running a YOM tag like I am (in NC we can register the car with antique auto tags, throw the DVM tagunder the seat and run the YOF) in this case I would say yes because as the YOF you can restore, replace the tag so it is in excellent condition.

  8. I don't know for fact but it's probably a case of you can do one or the other but not both. The tours may have been setup either that the tours are at one certain time and/or due to transporting people and/or distance between the two places that would make it this way.
  9. If you have a spam filter, check your junk mail. I have my email set to keep the email on the server for 24 hours after my email program downloads my emails. Peter sent my U/N P/W I believe monday afternoon but I didn't know anything about it until I checked my email online at lunch Tuesday from work. When I came home, I couldn't find the email. finally found it in the junk mail.
  10. I'm not going to make it. Already blew 1 day for Charlotte and will blow 3 more days for Gettysburg (Traveling with parents... something about visiting realatives since we're only 1.5 hy away) And then there is the week for Herhsey, my offical 5 days of vaction time from work.
  11. Common sense guys.... The "manual" is guidelines. Factory documentation overrules the guidelines. As for the Corvette have different size tire F/R make sure the team captain knows you have factory documentation for them being different. If you read the 2001 Judges Guidelines, under engine, item 1, it reads "all radiator hose clamps must match each other. All heater hose clamps must match each other." 99% of the time they do. But a '63 Chevy II would be incorrect if all the heater hose clamps match. One clamp is different. I have Factory documentation for this. This item was changed in 2002 Jud
  12. I understand where those wanting T-3 headlights to be required are coming from. BUT.... Stop and think about the fact that the judges are trying to cover something 2,800 different makes and models. If AACA made T-3 Brand Name headlights mandatory for GM cars, then brand name should be just as important for all other cars. Can you tell me what brand name headlight is correct for the following: 1949 Willys Jeepster 1963 Studebaker Avanti 1951 Hudson Hornet 1952 MG TD 1954 Kaiser Darrin 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II 1958 Rambler Rebel 1973 Dodge Dart 1984 Pontiac Fiero Datsun 280Z As for the battery, A
  13. I would suggest writing to the VP of Class judging and let him know you would like to see a military class. Point out valid reasons. I'm not sure how they came equipped but I do know that on pickups you don't find spare water can, gas cans, shovels, machine guns, etc. plus they were not really intended for the same road use as a passenger car, pickup truck or even a semi. Vice President – Class Judging Joseph S. Vicini 3 Robins Nest Drive Perrineville, NJ 08535 BTW, saw your Jeep at Charlotte. Very nice.
  14. George, don't let the hotel issues mentioned here stop you from attending. Pretty much it is a case of the host hotel is full anyways. They over booked, and bumped 18 of us out. What's made those of us that were bumped is the fact that they bumped those with one night reservations. in our case it appears to be taking a new three night reservation over a three month old, one night reservation. In someone elses case that's a 6 month old reservation. Just poorly handled on thier part. I did find out this weekend that they (gettysburg region) will have shuttles availble to other hotels. I stopped
  15. The AACA Meet is outside the track off turn 2 where the map AACA staging. You should be able to work your way around the outside of the track and not have to pay admission.
  16. Come to think of it class 22 would be more apporiate than 20. I was think of the CJs that have been in 26a-c. The GP was soley military.
  17. most likey 4 cyl. Even though it is a prototype I would think w/ the 4 it would be in 20e or f depending on year. Best thing is to call headquarters or VP of Class Judging.
  18. Batman goes eviromentaly green. Batman and Robin get even closer.....
  19. I have mixed feeling about both logos. First the "old” official logo. To change the logo would require a change of our by-laws. "ARTICLE 10 - MISCELLANEOUS Section 10.2. Emblem (Logo). The emblem (logo) of AACA shall be oval-shaped, with a facsimile of the 1895 Duryea automobile in the center and the inscription “Antique Automobile Club of America” and “Founded Nov. 1935” upon the circumference hereof, as per the trademark registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as set forth below: Note: at time one, maybe still is and I can't find it at the moment, the logo is/was to

Before anyone gets bent out of shape, I'm not knocking the rods. I build drag cars for a living and I do cry when someone brings us something too nice to cut up
  21. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Dave, color is not a privilege thing ...we have to pay for that privliedge!! </div></div> Steve, You don't need to remind me. I've delt with professional printers for a number of years, I know what color costs. Color is kinda like a double edge sword. On the one side it draws attention, and can gain you $ (or in our case members), on the other side, you got to lay out that extra money taking a chance on the return. You and Wes have worked wonders with the magazine.
  22. Steve, yes we are spoiled. There as been more and more color since Wes has been doing it, to the point of I didn't really notice the lack of B&W other than his photo was now in color.Figured it was a editor's privlege thing..
  23. That kind of looks like my brother-in-law's truck a couple of years ago. They got t-boned by a hit & run driver that failed to stop for a stop sign. Broke the back window and Elvis left the truck. Brother-in-law and sister got arms and hands road burned as the truck rolled, since the door windows were open. Lady at the nearby convenince store later that day found Elvis, cornered and locked him in the men's restroom and called my sister. At least they were okay as was the hound dog they were dog sitting for a local shelter.
