  1. #1 is a center cap used on 15" wheels of full size Ford cars and pickups from 1965 thru the '70's. #2 is for a '65, six-cylinder Mustang with 13" wheels. #4 appears to be for an early '60's Galaxie with 14" wheels. Jim
  2. I advise you to park your car on the field first. We take two cars and I judge. You will be in the dark but there are plenty of Hershey Region people to help you park. The judges breakfast is just a short walk across the Giant Center parking lot. Jim
  3. I'd say since we already registered our two Mustangs and I sent in my judging confirmation, we're going to Hershey. Jim Aberts 1970 BOSS 302 - Grand National Senior Preservation 1978 Mustang II - DPC
  4. Tony, Contact Fred Glazier at Glazier's Mustang Barn in Souderton, PA He is the orginal owner of a '64 1/2 and I'm sure that he'll be glad to help you. 215-723-9674 Jim
  5. Great story Marty. I spent most of my four years in the U.S. Air Force overseas and was always proud to serve my country. As a gallery guide in the AACA museum, I meet a lot of veterans and we always chat about our experiences. I have now pinned my Air Force stripes pin onto my museum vest so they can spot me and know that we share a common bond of proud veterans. Jim Aberts
  6. Really neat! No rain or mud. I was stationed overseas then. It would be 12 more years before I attended my first Hershey. Thanks
  7. Call Green Sales Company in Cincinnati at 1-800-543-4959. They only sell Ford parts and have a huge inventory. Nice people to deal with and they will look up the part number when requested. www.greensales.com Jim
  8. It was 65-degrees here on Tuesday, so I got both of the ponies out, fed them at the local Sunoco and then let them kick-up their heels. Way too much fun! Jim 1970 Mustang BOSS 302 1978 Mustang II
  9. Your car will do very well at an AACA meet. I have never seen a K Code covertible and look forward to seeing it at an AACA national meet. Hope you bring it to Gettysburg or Hershey. I have several friends with K Code coupes and fastbacks and that makes it special to me. Jim AACA Mustang Judge 1970 BOSS 302 1978 Mustang II
  10. Last summer, a friend of mine who has a lawn mowing service, was talking about how he thought the ethynol fuel was ruining his equipment. He tried several things and had the most success with adding StaBil to the mixture. It seems it stopped the corrosive action of the fuel. We have a '70 BOSS 302 and a '78 Mustang II that I always added StaBil to anyway, so I'm glad that it helps. I put 93 octane Sunoco and 104 octane booster in the BOSS with 10.5 compression and 89 in the V8 Mustang II. I also pushed back the timing on the BOSS. Hope this helps. Jim
  11. Dave is right. Of course I meant horizontally and not vertically. Been out of school too long. Jim
  12. I think I can help you. C3OB-16188-B is indeed a Ford part but it is just an ID number off the part and not the part number. I believe the part number is C3OZ-16098-A or B, which would make it a fender ornament from a '63 Fairlane. I believe the '63 Fairlane Sport Coupe had three of these vertical ornaments on each fender.

  13. Curtis, Call Erich at Christiana Restoration. The shop is near Wilmington, Delaware. 800-248-9522 Jim
  14. Check out the 75th anniversary website. Some great information on the early founders and events as the club grew and it's fun to read. Fun info - annual dues in 1935 were fifty-cents. A year later dues doubled to a dollar. Sign of the times I guess. Jim Aberts
  15. Peter, The Ford part number for the valve is E3SZ-2B257-B. I checked a national locator and there is no stock available. I also checked with Green Sales and Shamrock Parts but there was no stock. I suggest you call Ed Bennett (PA) 717-272-8762 Miller Obsolete (NY) 607-722-5371 Obsolete Ford (OK) 800-654-3247 Job-Lot Auo (NY) 718-468-8585 Jim
  16. Tom, I always wear thick-soled shoes and two pairs of socks. They really help cushion the pavement. It also helps to have everything in agreement. My 65 year-old brain says that we're going to look at every Mustang part in the flea market but my 65 year-old body says, "Ain't gonna' happen." Guess which one always wins? Have a good time. Hershey is a real experience. Jim
  17. What a great automotive experience. I rate it with receiving our AACA Grand national award. In 2003, Joan and I were invited to take our orange, 1970 BOSS 302 Mustang to the Radnor Hunt Concours. They were celebrating 100-years of Ford and they only invite 100-cars. Also, you only get to go once unless you take a different car. We were treated like celebrities and enjoyed a great lunch and made some new friends. We drove the BOSS there on wet roads but that didn't seem to matter. After some Meguiar's Spray and Shine it looked great and we won our class. I think I was walking on air when I ac
  18. Joan and I were gallery guides at the AACA Museum on saturday and there were a lot of visitors wearing Corvette shirts and hats. While talking with them we learned that many were from out-of-the-area and added the museum to their Carlisle plans. Jim Aberts
  19. This is a tough decision. Would I rather have my '54 Ford, '62 Fairlane or first '70 BOSS 302 back again. Yea, no brainer, I'll take the BOSS but the '54 is a close second. We had it when Joan and I got married and we drove it the whole time I was in the U.S. Air Force. Our oldest granddaughter has her eye on the '70 BOSS that we have now, so it will probably be with us for a longtime. Our daughter is attached to the Mustang II so it's going to be a family heirloom. That's ok with us. Jim Aberts
  20. Thanks for your kind comments Diz. It's a beautiful day here in southeastern PA and I just brought the BOSS back from driving our normal loop. Loads of fun and worth every penny for that Sunoco 100 octane. Jim
  21. Bob, I am a longtime Mustang judge I know that Shelby signs a lot of glovebox doors and I do not find it inappropriate. My advice is to tell the team captain when he or she introduces themselves to you and welcomes you to the show. As a team captain, I would discuss it with the interior judge and we would reach a decision. Myself, I see no points deduction. Jim Aberts 1970 BOSS 302 1978 Mustang II 1996 GT
  22. Steve, Don't want to waste time looking for errors. GREAT ISSUE! Rather spend my time reading the owner's car stories. Thanks for the long-range calendar of events. Jim Aberts
  23. Great job on the photo gallery! Thanks! Jim Aberts
  24. Correction: I mistakenly gave credit for the vintage motorcycle presentation to museum curator Jeff Bliemeister. The display was arranged by George Ringle of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. The display is great. Sorry for the error. Jim Aberts
