  7. Good morning grubin, At last years show there were many trailers parked at the Eastern-most edge of this huge facility. Some owners used their antique vehicle as transportation while others drove their tow vehicle with their antique left in the trailer on site. Good luck- will try to make a point of seeing you- Dave
  8. A very informative topic. Edinmass- I enjoy reading your insights on all topics throughout this forum and would appreciate your feeling as to what size extinguisher is sufficient to carry in a vehicle being displayed on a show field or participating on day tours with a group of other antique autos? Thanks- Dave

  13. Hello Summershandy, Just recently brought my car out of winter storage and was able to take a few photos which may help you. This is the center section for the battery cover which you have.
