  1. As you said "without seeing the vehicle..." I'd say you probably corrected the items. About the headlights. AACA does not require the T-3 lights (no specific brand). I would how ever make sure the lights match from side to side because that could be a point deduction.
  2. We may be in trouble folks..... It's pretty bad when the editor isn't sure when things are to be in the magazine.
  3. If you have been in 10 years, <span style="text-decoration: underline">Much</span> bigger. The flea market now spills out behind the backstreach. The AACA meet of outside the track behind turn 2. Car corral now wraps pretty much all the way around the track and in some place 2 or 3 row deep.
  4. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The grass can get soft, but not enough to have mud problems. </div></div> Wayne & Shoprat, where you ya'll last year??? Why do you think some of the muscle cars were parked in the alises, deep tire tracks behind my car in the HPOF class, and slide marks where dad tried backing into the spot with my mom's car. Hopefully after having reseeded all that area before last year's meet, with all the race events it gotten packed better.
  5. I knew it wasn't a true hijack but I did take us on a tangent that some could conceive to be an attempt at it. But I did feel it needed to be brought up. Judy, how do you do your direction pages for the tour book? I wanted to do something simlar for the Sentimental Tour but ran into time issues that prevented me from trying. (I had thursday's route laid out. a week before the the tour I got a call from a member saying there is now a detour- bridge out. two or three days before the tour I'm out running the route with the detour double checking the directions and find they freshly tarred and gra
  6. The hotel rate sound great. I think it about what the Sentimental Tour including the free breakfast was but I don't think there was a microwave in the rooms. One thing that gets me is going to a national meet and having to pay to park the trailer. I'm already paying $25 to enter the car in the show, why should I have to lay out another $10 -$25 to park the trailer? That's like having a $50 entry fee. This was slightly touched on at Philly. The person's comment was more towards that fact AACA is trying to recruit young people (pre-21) but doesn't to much to help the young adults that are throug
  7. There are others that use AACA. Authentic Artifacts Collectors Association (the one I most commonly run into on ebay) Asian American Civic Association American Association of Clinical Anatomists American Alliance of Creditor Attorneys

You mentioned 4 versions. pleading ignorance here. Are the other 4 versions available? And if not how do you mandate that T3 cars have the correct ones or get deduction if not all are available.

  11. Hey...I resemble that remark!!!! Although Andrea would say I'm oval.... mostly round but rather flat on the rear.
  12. I do know our 1980 Ponitac Bonneville came with Halogen headlights. That's as close as I can verify a year.
  13. :) :) a big thumbs up to that crowd!
  14. Late night posting strikes again. It should have read: "the lyrics are <span style="color: #FF0000">to the poem </span>"Defence of Fort McHenry" by Francis Scott Key<span style="color: #FF0000">.</span> It was <span style="color: #FF0000">then put to </span> a british drinking song "The Anacreontic Song" written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a London social club. ...." Helps when you can stay awake long enough to actually wrtie the whole post at one time.
  15. Problem is most people don't actually know the music it is "written" to. the lyrics are "Defence of Fort McHenry" by Francis Scott Key It was a british drinking song "The Anacreontic Song" written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a London social club. Most people tend to sing it too slow. The tempo should be just about the same as if your were simply reading it out loud. Pay attention to the military's tempo compared to other singers.
  16. I did have a blue record with the story behind the advertising "Go Greyhound, and leave the driving to us". If I didn't wear it out as a kid, I should still have it somewhere. My grandfather drove for them.
  17. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">by announcing and playing their national anthems. </div></div> We might need to make the Hershey a two day event. Seroiusly, it would be nice to have our national anthem played at the start of judging. (If I were attending a meet on forgien soil, I'd naturally expect them to play thier national anthem.) It lets both judges and car owners know that it is time to srat the process. Color guard optional but should be able to get local ROTC, fire dept., VFW, american le
  18. The same (complete list all levels) could be done for the newsletter too.
  19. Wayne, I use Word all the time EXCEPT when it is some dealing with graphics. I can't get the control over them I want. Under page layout there is a button for colmuns and you tell it how many. The column thing is easy. As we talked about more so in the web seminar, there are different types of programs we use. 1. Text editor (Notepad, WordPad, etc) simply edits text Font size and type that's about it. 2. Word Processing (Word, etc) you can edit text, format paragraphs, cloumns, colors, etc. They will alow you to insert graphics. 3. Page Layout program (PageMaker, Publisher, Quark XPress, InDes
  20. The one thing I was thinking of though is if you video it, it would include the questions and answers that people raise during the simnar. That's something that would be missed with simply having the powerpoint program. The other way is someone needs to write it down or audio tape it then write afterwards and then that be included in the online info. Sometimes there are very good bits of info brought up that were not actually in the program.
  21. I've thought about the idea of recording them. What would be nice would be to have some video cameras, record them, there would have to be some editting invovled and post the majority of them online. For example the officer training is something all region/chapter officers should go to but out of 600 regions how many do? There were 1,020 people there this weekend, so at 600 regions and chapters, that wouldn't even cover all the Pres, and VPs.
  22. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Wait! I said we were THINKING about it.....</div></div> That is the same volunteering! Seriously, hope you'll do it. There are so many members out there that even though they don't think they have anything to offer, carry a wealth of information with them. I hate to use Ron Barnett as an example but he is still on people's mind's. How many of us know anything about I believe it was Keller automobiles that he had. A seminar at Philly would help to spread at least so
