  1. Matt, I now feel this is a good time to be retired. My son has a good banker and started processing a loan before the quarantine got settled in, So, he was able to get the loan in the first phase. Small construction business, but similar to your business as far as need is concerned. Thanks for your efforts to continue and hope the restoration and sales of classics pick up soon. I know several in similar situations. John
  2. Yes Jane, I would not like you see you get into a car that may have a lot of workmanship flaws. The car is "cute" and attractive, but may have faulty workmanship. If you remain interested, make sure you take it to a high quality mechanic to check out it's workmanship and condition. You could get into major expense. Check out the photos on these forums and galleries, you may find something equally nice, affordable and practical. John
  3. Thanks Mr. Earl. Being in Hawaii, surely means if marketed on the mainland, one needs to consider shipping. Alternative is the limited market on the Islands. John
  4. Earl, I am thinking - No.1, are the motels along the way will be open?? Many are restricted to essential workers only to allow then to stay so as not to expose their families. I know all in CT are mandated to this, at least for now. Expect the will open soon. Not sure what the rule is in PA, but I feel the AACA must soon make a decision. We are still 9 weeks to go. John
  5. Matt, I am wondering how far you want to extend that offer. I may be willing to put up $10. also. John
  6. Ben and Dave, Never been on the I-77 area, so am looking forward to including some side trips, or perhaps all byways, as opposed to interstates. Should be an exciting concept. Good tp see this work between NMC and the involved local organizers. John
  7. Yes Larry, isn't this fun. But, "timing" (no pun intended) during this "physical distancing" could not be better. John
  8. Note sure it has been mentioned, but please do not sit too long. Get up and move about a bit. John
  9. George, I know someone that recently acquired a '37, so I will check with him (He does not frequent the forum) to see of his needs. You can call me at 860.558.6764 and I will get you his number. John
  10. Any thought if this should be cancelled seeing that the National Meet, scheduled later in the year has been cancelled? John
  11. Welcome to you both. Please consider joining the BCA. You will find details on the forum. John
  12. Larry, Surely at this point, the museum must be closed, No? John
  13. Like wise, Cindy was helpful designing the promotion for the Covered Bridge Tours in Allentown, and I found it in the trash, before I almost lost it, I was able to retrieve and it now graces my garage wall, as well as our cherished print media, Thank You again, Cindy for all that you have done for the BCA. John
  14. Steve, I know how you feel about medical issues. Have had a few these past few months myself. Looking forward to staying together for Allentown. Hope you are better. John
  15. Larry, have a safe trip. Rental car from Heathrow, should not be too bad. I know you can handle manual shifts, but best stick with automatic. John
  16. I wonder what my Grandpa's old certificates for Durant and Star failures are worth now. Never thought about selling, as they are a "somewhat" link to early GM. John
  17. Looks like quite a pile of tires in the background. Seems there might be more than one old car. John
  18. Pete, Got a price.. Also a photo of inside. I can always inventory a set. How many do you have? John
  19. Congrats, Lamar. See you put the opener to quick use. John
  20. Let's hope we can keep these numbers on the upswing. John
  21. Brian, Hope I remember my physics, can you figure out how to save the kinetic energy for the trip home? John
  22. Jack, To retain emphasis on the Buicks, should it not be "trailering" Division. John
  23. Ralph, Do you have it ready for AACA on June 29? I am looking forward to seeing it. Jon Henry and I looked at it before you and he was pondering the extraction (my choice of the word) of the car, just before you bought it.. John Scheib
  24. Well said, Pete. I wish we could get your comments out to all members, not just those on the forum. So, I am challenging all members on the forum to get Pete's most logical explanation out to those that have not yet voted. I will probably write more on this, but this is Saturday evening. Also, I hate to see various "groups" trying to sway votes by mailings only to certain members based on "suggestions as what will happen if they vote for certain people". (We made to have our own Mueller investigation on illegal ballot influencing.) John
