  1. Grimy, The CA Commercial Drivers Handbook (on the CA DMV site) current issue is the 2017-2018 version. It has been revised since I was looking up requirements in 2014. It is not as clearly defined as I remember it being in 2014. But if you look at the sheet where they have columns headings "You May Drive", "And You May Tow" and "Examples" (the Examples column has pic-to-grams). The only 3 axle trailer example in the pic-to-grams is listed with Class A Commercial License. That truck/trailer combination is a large 18 wheeler type rig. I will be the first to admit that as listed in the current Commercial Drivers Handbook it could be subject to interpretation. I would think that if you didn't have a commercial Class A and CHP wanted to issue citation it would be in an uphill battle with that. As a side note, I find it interesting that in CA (even on interstate) for any vehicle pulling a trailer the speed limit is 55 mph. My observation was that I appeared to be the only one that was adhering to that law.
  2. Regardless of what the weight ratings of truck, trailer and/or combination, triple axles is a mandatory Class A CDL in CA.
  3. Richelieumotorcar, Let the naysayers have their way. The old adage that the loudest boo's come from the cheapest seats is prevalent here. Without what your family did there would be a lot less cars for them to sit in the cheap seats and crow about.
  4. Those are good looking tires. Might give them a try on my next set. I noticed in the screen shot that you posted that the speed rating on those Sailun S637's is "L". Speed rating L is 75 mph. The Goodyear Endurance (in that same size tire) has a speed rating of "N". Speed rating N is 87 mph.
  5. "Nada, zippo, nothing if you click on it or buy from any of these vendors who are supporting us by placing ads." What type/form of support/compensation does AACA receive from the vendors that place the ads?
  6. If you are a "For Hire" motor carrier you will also be required to have DOT number.
  7. Are you sure Coker owns Lucas?
  8. It would seem that the lions share of presenting an authentic car for judging at an AACA National Meet is the responsibility of the car owner, not the ones processing the registration. When submitting registration for a National Meet just above where the car owner signs it reads: "I also acknowledge in signing this registration form that the body and engine are authentic and of the same style as that originally fitted to this chassis at the time of the vehicle's original manufacture, as required by official judging rules."
  9. I believe Walter is correct - Gray & Davis. I've seen these on some Buick Model F's that also are equipped with bullet shaped Gray & Davis lamps.
  10. Were there 2 Auburn Speedsters in the running for the award? The winner of the award is listed as: 1928 Auburn 8-88 Speedster owned by Richard and Linda Harding of Xenia, Ohio. In the list of nominees there was listed: Richard & Helen Harding 1928 Auburn 8-88 Speedster Beavercreek, OH. The question of two (2) is generated by the difference in spouses name and the hometown.
  11. Hmmm...Could this be counted as the 2nd strike?
  12. I would say quite the contrary. The museum as an outstanding existing facility not to mention real estate for expansion. Moskowitz's comment in itself implies National headquarters is looking to add brick and mortar, something the museum already has. Two questions that I think would reveal some insight to this whole thing: 1. Which party made the approach about the merger? 2. Who made the motion in the AACA meeting to withdraw making a contribution to the museum? Interesting that Thomas Cox is both the Exec. VP of AACA and a board member of the AACA Museum. The AACA Museum has a new Exec. Director, maybe it's time for AACA to get a new Exec. Director and with both entities having new/fresh ideas this could be amicably resolved. What do you say Thomas Cox?
  13. Articfer Tom, The ights are for a 4 dr. sedan and I think they should be stainless/chrome. Typically painted are for commercial. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks, Bob
  14. Handleman, Thanks for your reply. I have PM'd you. Bob
  15. As listed in the title, for a 1932 Plymouth. Looking to buy complete headlights with stands and tail light. Would prefer to buy nice clean units. Thanks in advance for any leads you might have. Bob
