    Winter meet 2019 Ocala

    Snowy day here in Virginia, not much to do so i thought I would make some reservations for the up coming show season. The host hotel for the Winter meet is full for Friday night, they do have a few rooms remaining for Thursday of Saturday nights but not wanting to have to move I checked the alternate hotel and was able to get rooms. This is the La Quinta which is right there near the host hotel. Better make your reservations if you plan to go

    National awards banquet

    Congratulations on your award, You have just recieved one of the highest awards given by AACA. By all means attend the Annual Meeting and Banquet. You and your guest could dress "period correct" , you can wear a tux or a nice suit and tie is fine. The silver platters gave way to crystal awards about 15 or more years ago. Bottom line, be there cause they gonna roll out the red carpet for you....literary

    1930 Ford Model A Tudor

    After a car recieves its Sr. Award from AACA the car will recieve a Preservation Award provided it is maintained in show condition. This car was awarded its Sr. in 1988 then used for touring then in 2017 we took it to the AACA National Meet in Huntington, WV where it was given a Preservation Award, this was to show that the car is still great condition.

    1930 Ford Model A Tudor

    Still available
  7. In years past the show field has dried out quickly and it did this year, the problem this year was it rained right up until time to get on the showfield. I was on Ave. 11, driving in was fine until i turned onto Ave 11, even then i was ok until someone walked in front of me and i had to stop for them, lost my momentum and started spinning. Almost got stuck and I am still trying to get the mud and grass from under my car.

    Ray Evernham's new TV Show

    Yep, i dont watch much TV but i look forward to seeing this show. As for that Model A, hindsight is 20-20, Next time i decide i want to get a Preservation with it, I think I'll call up to Headquarters and see what your schedule is before i enter it.

    Portawalls question

    Im late to this discussion bur Ive had plenty of experience with Port A Walls when i was a teenager working at the local Texaco station in the early 60's. I wouldnt put them on a wheel borrow! Wore my thumbs out trying to push them down on the rim and get the puckers out only to have them pucker up on the opposite side of the wheel.

    1957 Corvette Fuelie

    Zip has a website for ordering parts and they list thier contacts but i doubt they list any cars for sale on it. I was in there last Saturday and the 57 was setting in the show room. If you called i would ask to speak to Andy

    I have enjoyed reading this thread, I've been showing at AACA National Meets now for a little over 25 years and have been fortunate in the awards dept., AACA has been very good to me, I have never been to a conqours event but thats about to change as my car was accepted in the Hemmings Conqours Event at Lake George, NY. Im really looking forward to it, hope i'm not disappointed !
