  1. The Chief Judge traditionally releases vehicles at 3:00 plus it is well noted in the meet brochure. IMO it was finally cracked down upon which is great considering all the hard work of hundreds of volunteers. You can leave before 3:00 on the Hockersville Road exits "however" the officers at the exits will demand that you turn in your windshield judging card which will then be given to the judging committee to disqualify you from receiving trophies or whatever.
  2. Then simply "Report" it. The Moderators will look into your wishes.
  3. Alas…I never did thus I thought it to be weird.
  4. This is weird, Jay. The passes mysteriously show up without the stamp being cancelled and one day to spare. Oh well. At least you have them.
  5. Jay. This late in the game and considering how busy HQ is currently try simply phoning HQ. To ask the question on this forum does not necessarily mean the person (s) with authority will pick up on your query. It is all over the news how the USPS is "way" behind in delivery, too.
  6. John. With all the touring experience and Wayne's hard work being a past AACA Director I would gamble that Gloria already reads the Antique Automobile. When Gloria finds out where the computer is Wayne is going to need your guest bedroom...😃
  7. West and family…my condolence to all of you. He certainly was a wonderful gentleman. Regards, Peter.
  8. USPS deliveries continue to have problems overall. Just be patient.
  9. Saw this in the Reading Eagle news today: https://www.wfmz.com/news/area/berks/2-berks-attractions-among-top-us-travel-destinations/article_2f6eb6fc-1ca9-11ec-b24c-7331a9bc8796.html Regards, Peter J.

  11. Two old truck drivers were looking for a job. Bubba and Wayne Burgess see a want add and stop by to check it out. The dispatcher asks if they have any experience. Wayne says they sure do stating "Bubba and I drove for years together with no accidents". The dispatcher responds "that sounds great". Before starting I must ask you a safety question: "If you were driving down an extremely steep hill only to find out your breaks are failing plus there is a red light at the bottom with heavy cross traffic. What do you guys do?" Wayne says that's easy: "I'd wake up Bubba." The dispatcher says "What good would waking up Bubba do?" Wayne responds: "Bubba ain't never seen no bad wreck".
  12. A exhausted guy is riding his bike in the blazing of a desert. A gent driving a Jaguar pulls over. Feeling sorry for the bike rider he says “I don’t have enough room for the bike but I could tow you to the next town. Just honk your bike horn if I am going to fast”. They leave and after a bit a Corvette pulls along side and they start racing. They are flying down the highway and pass a cop using radar who calls ahead to the chase car “Charlie, you are not going to believe this but in a minute a Corvette and a Jag will come by over 100 mph with a guy on a bike honking to pass”.
  13. I was told that legendary car designer Harley Earl designed the hairdo of our past Prez. Thought about it and there just may be credence to this claim. I do not know if Harley had a hand in the design of the 1959 Chevrolet Impala however, there sure is a resemblance if you look at the car from a 3/4 angle view from the back.
  14. 2021_HERSHEY_FALL_MEET_BROCHURE.pdf (aaca.org) Ted, to answer all of your "????" click on the above link. The current 2021 Fall Hershey Meet is August 15, 2021. If you go to this website's home page you will see a wide variety of practically question you and many others just throw out on the Forum arena. Check it out.

  15. Ted: Carlisle Events 717) 243-7855 Being a "For Profit" business I suspect totals are not publicized. AACA Meets are made public as we are a non-profit 501-(C) Just my 2 cents.
  16. Wayne, I have used Rhode Island years ago, too for a Triumph Spitfire I since sold. Excellent workmanship and worth the wait. Peter J.
  17. RIP William "Tom" Gerrard. Wonderful down to earth gent and was a huge benefactor to the AACA National and Library.
  18. I do not believe I ever saw a rule that mandates a certain size such as length, O.D., etc. You received a lot of good info on type and chemical specs from respondents. At this point I advise you contact Chuck Crane, VP Judging. He is a great guy as I can attest. flivverway@gmail.com (If that is not a good email link phone AACA HQ at 717-534-1910 for updated contact info) Regards, Peter J.
  19. Correct, sagefinds...my 46 year career was in the jobbing foundry business. Made various sizes of radiator and boiler section nipples by the thousands for U.S. Boiler, Dunkirk (NY) Radiator, etc. Very lucrative Class 30 grey iron jobs to include machining them. Great value added. Next time you see a few radiator sections joined together there are pressed fit nipples joining them. (yes, folks grey iron is brittle yet once machined they press fit simply due to the tapered machining.) Regards, Peter J.
  20. Padgett...I'll let you know if I have a 2020 Jeep Cherokee parts car when my wife returns (hopefully) later today. Reason being she and 4 of her girlfriends are out shopping at a few malls today...😁
  21. Send or phone Richard Petty Motorsports your query and history. Petty may answer you himself. Who knows. Hi, Grog...our posts collided
  22. Gent decides to join a monastery. Goes up and knocks on the door. The Superior answers “Can I help you”? Gent replies “I want to join up”. Superior says “you must be made aware we have rigid rules such as absolute silence and at 5 year intervals I will ask you in only 2 words how you are doing”. OK the gent replies. At the 5 year mark the Superior asks “how are you doing”? Gent replies “BED HARD!” At the 10 year mark the Superior asks him “how are you doing”? Gent replies “FOOD STINKS!” At the 15 year mark the Superior asks him “how are you doing”? Gent replies “I QUIT!” Superior replies “GOOD! ALL YOU DID WAS COMPLAIN ANYWAY!”
  23. Same to you, Walt. Very nice photo. Just wish I could have shown it to my late mother Simone. She was a war bride from Marseille and was a nurse in WWII. Her father imported the first Ford model T's to Algiers. He died fighting in the French Resistance. Regards, Peter.
  24. As Johnny Carson once said: “...there is only one fruitcake in existence. It just keeps being re-gifted around the world.”
