  1. I concede. You are right, he frickin' deserved it!
  2. Really? We must be reading different threads. The OP hasn't even responded since post #21 and I didn't perceive him as particularly argumentative. He previously indicated that he accepted the answer to his initial question, hoped it would change in the future, but elected, for his own reasons, to not argue or debate his decision to not start his car after restoration. THEN the mob began its condescending dig and pontificated about the validity of the OP's logic and determined that he was insignificant. Well congratulation, you've won, he's gone.... (I think). We can either accept that there is room in this club for different viewpoints or we can drive all differring viewpoints away along with the people... and then ask ourselves "how do we attract new members into our club?".
  3. I would be willing to bet that many of the "enlightened" comments spouted in this thread have insured us that we will never see this OP's vehicle at an AACA meet. The irony is that this forum does not permit folks to bad mouth a poor vendor by name but it certainly has permitted the clear, repeated, and directed alienation of a present or potential club member. We should be so proud! This thread should have been closed early on.
  4. dooscoop & billybird, Might I ask where your cars were parked? I also had a car at the meet and was fortunate to not experience any vandalism. Sorry to hear that you folks did.
  5. I have a '36 Series 70 Convertible Coupe (V8). Let me know if I can help you with any other pictures. I have a few sources for '36 parts. z Our Collection - CK Auto Restoration Album - Powered by Phanfare
  6. AR Tailights usually had Duolight stamped on top. No "STOP" lens. What parts other than the bumpers were T carryovers in the AR?
  7. I understand the rules. But that was not what you asserted in your earlier post. You indicated that Judges should move/lift items (accessories) in trunks and they were advised to do so in Judges training. No judge should touch anything in anyones vehicle. I have been at many a judged car show where owners have rightly come unglued because some doofus judge took the liberty of moving, lifting, or removing items in vehicles, trunk or otherwise. I was at one show (non-AACA) where the judge walked around the entire car with his finger on the edge of the vehicle's body line. For what reson is unclear. The owner finally stood up and walked behind the judge with a fiber towel and quick detailer and wiped the car down. The car was jet black. The owner then packed up his stuff, got in his vehicle and left the field.
  8. Nope! Judging manual is very specific... "Removal of "on location" documentation items is the only exception to "hands-off" judging" Documentation Items only! Accessories in the trunk or magnets on the car are NOT to be touched by a Judge. Appropriate deductions can be made for magnets on the body as they were not originally supplied on the car. I have NEVER heard anyone tell folks in Judging class that they are permitted to touch anything in vehicles to determine if they are hiding something.
  9. Are the 2009 Webmaster Award Logos posted yet? The link above is for 2008. Thanks.
