  1. While at the 2013 SE Divisional Fall Meet people were scrambling to get their cars on the show field in the rain. Here is one driver determined to get his car on the field just before the deadline. http://youtu.be/SUp7NkH2C2Y
  2. Front Page publish feature is not working anymore...it shows trying to connect to the server but freezes... never get the password log in box.. could there be a problem on the server?
  3. The price of this car is now $ 19,500.00 Please contact my wife, Mary Ann Echelberry at 386-677-9507 for information.
  4. I am also having Front Page problems. In one folder, only half my files are transferring and it stops. Peter, can you set me up for ftp so I can get the files over that way? Send me the settings. I am familiar with Filezilla and FTP Commander and should be able to figure out the setup once I get the hostname, user, password and port (if necessary).. Send to: normanechelberry@earthlink.net Thanks..
  5. I'm glad there was a lot of response on this. Next question is: Is anyone using Microsoft Expression Studio ? If so, what do you think of it and what version are you using?.. It appears to be cheaper than probably the Adobe Dreamweaver is around $200, academic versions are less (I'm too old to be a student!).......
  6. Vector art in simple terms, is that you can stretch a clipart in vector form and it does not lose any quality... you could make it as big as a poster with no loss. Try that with a .jpg photo you have, stretching it... you would be looking at a lot of boxes (pixels) a lot quicker... vector is mostly lines and curves without going into a lot of tech stuff.
  7. Thanks everyone... my club decided to use a photo of our featured car for the show over line art. I started to hand draw it but didn't finish it before the decision. I used photoshop to trim the photo to the edges of the cars outline. Suggestion, if you take photos of a car for shirts/high resolution type projects, try to to have reflections of grass, people, etc. on the chrome and paint. Makes it much easier!
  8. Thanks Jay.. I have a photo of the featured car we will be using (a club members).. but it was taken with grass reflecting on the chrome, windows and the tires have grass up the edges of the tires. So I have a lot of cleanup to do to keep it a photo. The one you sent gives me an idea of how i can change to line art and keep it simple..
  9. Question for you I read that use Dreamweaver.... how do you do your uploads with it. Front Page has the "kind of keep it simple stupid" publish site button that makes the screen into two sides, one your computer the other the server (at AACA). Then you just click to Publish it (again) and it starts the automated process (that USUALLY works)... but I am interested in the Dreamweaver file transfer method.
  10. Any chance someone has a line art or clip art (not photos) of a 1937 Cord Cabriolet in their collection? I need one for our website and upcoming car show in April. Thanks in advance.. Norm, Volusia Region AACA Webmaster
  11. First, I would like to thank Peter and also pick his brain. I have been using Microsoft Front Page 2003 since it came out and there has been no upgrades to it. In those five years I am sure there are some improvements they could have made. Is there an alternative to using Front Page for our web design that any of you use or recommend. I am mostly looking to the near future of a re-do on the site and trying to get new ideas. The "publish site" feature is easy to use in Front Page but I would like to see other web page design features. Thanks in advance. Norm/Volusia Region AACA Webmaster

  13. I haven't been here for a while, maybe someone can tell me the quick way to see or sign up for the E-News... or I missed it in a publication that my wife still has in her pile.. Norm Echelberry Volusia Region AACA Webmaster www.aaca.org/volusia volusia-aaca-webmaster@earthlink.net

  16. My wife and I attended and participated both days at the show. The hosts were outstanding. Everyone was helpful and the dinner banquets had excellent food and service. The trailer parking area was more than adequate and we could not believe the number of spectators both Friday and Saturday. Also, the Jr. AACA program they had was from what I heard a great success. I heard the kids judged 7 vehicles and were within 4 points of the regular judges score - and then found items the AACA judges didn't. That was great to have them involved. Thanks to all of the people who helped with the event.
  17. The reason I brought this up is one of our region board member belongs to some other organization that uses pay pal for dues and he thought it might an idea to explore for our club. So, I set out to do some homework... I agree a check is a lot easier and if it comes up again, I will discourage pay pal. We're only just over a hundred members (plus spouses) and it doesn't really justify using something like... Thanks everyone for your inputs.. Norm/Volusia Region AACA
  18. I have used Eastwood but also bought a lot of buffing supplies from Tar Heel Parts (www.tarheelparts.com) in North Carolina. I first met them at the Daytona Beach Spring Spectacular Car Show and they are usually at the Turkey Run in November also there. They are very helpful, especially Skip, who gives advice on the item you are working on. I have been buffing and polishing a motorcycle for a grand national and would have never been able to do it without the items from Tar Heel.

Thanks, Norm
  20. One of our region members showed me a newsletter from a club other than a AACA one and they are using Pay Pal to encourage members to pay with. If anyone out there is using this could you post a few short details about the cost and if it is working. Thanks... Norm/Volusia Region
  21. Art, Will there be a dinner both nights or only on Saturday night? Or what do you have planned. I haven't seen details yet. Thanks..
