  1. old car, how are you? Nonsense to your post from what I saw at an enjoyable Hershey. I have entered a car since 1998 at Hershey and cannot recall ever seeing what I believe is as a crisis situation.
  2. Ted, I just sent Phil Cole a PM to see if he can assist you. Possibly someone else may chime in. In the past the director's board meeting has been on Wednesdays of Hershey week so if this is the case you might expect a delay of a day or so. Not certain if Mark McAlpine or 61polara are on line this week. Regards, Peter.
  3. Mr. Renz. I offer the following very simple suggestions and fully realize your anxiety after all your years of work. 1. Chat with people in your class during the meet. Possibly ask someone you meet to give you a call on your cell phone if you must head home after the show. Or...if you know someone who is attending is a form to fill out and I believe it will be in your meet packet when you come on to the show field or request one when you stop going on to the show field. Basically you are authorizing your friend to pick up your trophy in your absence. 2. If you are staying in Hershey and heading home on Sunday do what many have done and still do go have dinner somewhere in Hershey, relax, then go over to the Hershey Lodge around 7:30 - 8:00 and by then the dinner should be over. You can relax there as well. When the awards are announced hob-knob with the many others around you and wait until your class is announced. Or... 3. If you win and have none of the above HQ will send you a letter that you won xyz trophy and make advance shipping payment. The trophy will then be sent to you.
  4. Glad it worked out as well, Cutlass Guy. I would advise you send a PM to those who request it. The AACA Forum has rules about being the media involving disputes between customers and vendors. (501c3 status could be jeopardized and legal action has been threatened in the past.) Just a heads up.
  5. FMF, see below. As Phil noted you can check it out by clicking on the AACA Home in the opening page header bar. Scroll over to the Publications topic then when it opens scroll down to Judging Guidelines HPOF. Regards, Peter J.

  6. If he is an AACA member could HQ send a card of sympathy? Regards, Peter J.
  7. prewar40 and what is it?, Thank you, gents. Certainly worth a try. Regards, Peter J.
  8. Hello, Wayne. Try contacting Regions or Chapters in Minnesota. Possibly a member could help you out. Never know unless you ask. May or may not be convenient without having to meet somewhere but give it a try as you do not have much time. Regards, Peter J.

  9. John pretty well summed it up, Ted. I might add: --Important to open your hood and roll up all windows. (If you would leave the hood down and walk away during judging you will not be judged.) --Important: After you are judged leave your hood up and windows up plus the windshield info card under a wiper blade. The reason being the National Awards Judges will come by over the meet duration checking out vehicles to nominate for a coveted National Award with the winners being presented a beautiful trophy at the February Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. --I advise not to put tire changing tools, sales literature, photo books of any restoration steps, plastic trophies won at local shows, and so on. --Of note do not become overcome with worry. The judges are on your side to give you the most fair assessment and benefit of any doubt to win. This is preached to them in judging school. Regards, Peter J.
  10. cfryer, I would advise that you phone AACA Headquarters for a quick answers and direction at 717-534-1910. Very competent staff and you speak to those in the know. I could advise more help but wish to avoid being corrected which management has been doing lately to my attempts. Regards and I agree with Terry that Tigers are great cars. Peter J.
  11. Bingo, Tim!!! This was Mexico Free Trade (MFT). I suppose it is OK to name them as they are out of business under this name. Real life experience of mine: I have been in management for 46 years in the ferrous foundry casting business. Quite a few years ago there were 3 gents one of whom contacted me about casting 3 manifolds for their Duesenberg autos. They were really in a bind. MFT demanded upwards of $3,000 per manifold "up front". They sent the $9,000 along with a cracked manifold for reproduction to MFT in El Paso, Texas. Turns out MFT then takes the sample across the boarder and who knows where in all of Mexico a foundry receives it for modeling and casting. That was the last they heard of their rare sample casting or the $9,000. Incidentally, I could have cast them with a very good profit for around $800 a piece back then. Listen to what others are saying here.
