  1. You might check with Doug Seybold as he probably has the answer. I just sent off a pair of sliding (telescoping?) supports to him for overhaul
  2. Sweet ! At least a 3-fer Black '56 Special sedan is obvious, but 4th car to it's right is a '53, then if you look over the right rear of the '55 Chevy wagon 2nd car to the left of the '56, there appears to be maybe a '50 Special 4-door
  3. I could be wrong, but thought that Type A was the originally correct fluid for Dynaflow Any thoughts?
  4. Rube Goldberg would stand up and applaud Well done !!
  5. Thank You Old -Tank, and thank you and your trumpet section for your participation. My grandson also offered his rendition from his home in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Just this month he graduated college, Magna Cum Laude, as a trumpet performance major, and will go on to work toward his Masters in Music at Western Illinois University. Amazing how such a simple tune, 24 simple notes, evokes such emotion - especially in those of us who choose to offer our rendition, think back to the real meaning behind the memory By the way, have you ever done the "Echo" TAPS ? a second horn, off in the distance, with a delayed sound- Did that for my father's funeral

  7. MEMORIAL DAY- SOME GAVE ALL, Not much I can add to the expressed sentiments, other than to include the following, which was included as part of the "TAPS ACROSS AMERICA" today at 3:00 PM local time. Our grandson who graduated college Magna Cum Laude on May 8th sounded TAPS in Natchitoches, Louisiana as he prepares to start graduate school at Western Illinois University where he has been awarded the position of Graduate Teaching Assistant while working toward his Masters Degree: TAPS ACROSS AMERICA - May 25, 2020 1 3:00 PM CST Marty Roth - (and emotion affected quality of play) HONORING THOSE FALLEN IN THE DEFENSE OF OUR COUNTRY ALL GAVE SOME- SOME GAVE ALL Thankful for my father Albert Roth’s safe return from WWII Pacific Theater while while others were not spared- Remembering Albert Roth SeaBees- 6th Special Battalion 1943-1946
  8. I received an email stating that a survey would be coming - But have not received it yet. I have vended at the same Chocolate field spaces CG 32, 33, 34 (near lightpost 58) continuously since 1984
  9. Well, we did drive the unrestored 13,xxx mile1937 Roadmaster convertible sedan today, Sunday, May 24th, 2020. The car drove beautifully, although at one point we thought there might be a tire problem - turned out it was just the road, beat up by heavy trucks and causing vibration which disappeared after reaching the next area. Our local Lagniappe Chapter of Louisiana Region AACA is based in Houma, about an hour southwest of New Orleans, so we have an almost 60 mile drive just to get to meetings, or today's starting point, an extra 120 miles extra round trip. The club met at Freddie and Celeste Hebert's auto repair shop, Keep It Rolling Car Care Center and departed at 11:30 sharp, driving through rapidly eroding marshlands being reclaimed by the Gulf of Mexico. We headed toward Cocodrie - as far south as the road leads from Houma to the gulf, and then turned toward Sportsman's Paradise Restaurant, a long time favorite in Chauvin. There, waiters came to our cars, took our orders, and brought us fresh cooked-to-order Louisiana seafood. Receiving our food orders, we drove "UP 'DA BAYOU" to the Chauvin Sculpture Garden to sit in the shade, eat our lunches, and to socialize at an appropriate distance with 30 or so club members and guests. This is an exceptional, and very surreal place. Kenny Hill, the artist constructed these dozens of mostly religious concrete representations alongside Bayou Petit Caillou - on land he didn't own and where he didn't have permission to do this work. The area has since been preserved by a local university, as you'll see in the photos and additional links of this EXCEPTIONAL PLACE, My shrimp Po-Boy was excellent while Dale had her dressed Po-Boy with lightly fried fresh caught oysters, in traditional Louisiana manner. Our son Evan and his wife Deb rode with us in the '37 Roadmaster Phaeton while Daughter Charla and her hubby Whitney Richard drove the '88 BMW 528e. Buicks were well represented. In addition to our 1937 Roadmaster 80C Phaeton (convertible sedan), club members Ken and Linda Smart drove their beautiful 1964 Buick Wildcat 2-door hardtop, also pictured, below. The weather was a perfect mid-80s, sunny, with a modest 13 mph breeze off the Gulf of Mexico to make the day even more pleasant. Beyond my photos, please explore additional photos of the cars submitted by Whitney Richard: Fred Duplechin planned and coordinated with Whitney to pull off this event, and has shared pics of the Sculpture Garden: Car Pics: Sculpture Gardens pics: I've added a few of my pics, as well: Y'all stay safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Hydrated,
  10. Matt, I would look at the difference in construction and air opressure in the tires. The Buick "should" ride at least as well as the Packard, and likely better. Maybe the Buick has "enhanced" springs, incorrect shocks, too much tire pressure?
  11. I like the car, but really prefer to drive- We plan a 200 mile round trip this coming Sunday with our local club- New Orleans to Houma, and then south through Dulac to Cocodrie for lunch at Sportsmans', then to the concrete sculpture garden in Chauvin, returning to Houma and then the 50 miles home again. Daughter and son-in-law/Chapter President in their car ('88 BMW 528e) Son and daughter-in- law with us in the '37 Roadmaster Phaeton - hopefully top-down
  12. Yes, John, there are possible complications to essentially every part of this wonderful country. Our last flood damage here in Metairie, an suburb of New Orleans, was August, 2005 when Katrina hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast but political stupidity caused flooding here 4 days after the storm. The later-jailed council president kept evacuated police, fire EMS, and Pump station operators away for a week. In nearby jurisdictions, firefighters broke into the pumping stations and saved entire neighborhoods. The gigantic drainage pumps here in Metairie lost their air-lock and Lake Pontchartrain back-flowed through the pumps into the drainage canals, streets, homes and businesses - strictly a man-made disaster, at least in our neighborhood! While dozens of tornados have tended to travel north of the lake, (not to mention the Great Plains), there was a strong wind shear which took a roof in our neighborhood a few blocks from home back in the 1970s. We're on alert six months out of the year for tropical systems, but generally have a good week's worth of advance notice as to general area, and a few days of actual time to batten down the hatches, or to get-outta'-Dodge. Having been raised in the frigid north, and spent too many winters shoveling too many driveways, sidewalks, etc - slip sliding through snow and ice, and arriving at my office with slush in my socks. Having met my now-bride of nearly fifty-one years in New Orleans, and enjoying Gulf of Mexico fishing, shrimping, and water skiing - even over Christmas and New Years holidays, I will deal with my choice and be able to drive our old cars year-round. Oh, by the way John, we do love your area of the country, and very much look forward to this year's Glidden Tour, to be hosted by VMCCA at Saratoga Springs, New York, and my Dad was raised in Plattsburgh, NY!
  13. Aside from the obvious Buick Special 2-door hardtop in front of the Studebaker sedan noted beyond the hood of the brand new 1958 Pontiac Bonnieville sporting a temporary tag in the rear window, as one searches the photo's far center left, a 1958 Buick 2-door hardtop is noted facing the "wrong" way and partly up on the curb
  14. The charming young ladies in the Roadmaster convertible, possibly arriving at Pan American World Airways' Miami PAN AM sea plane terminal/base in Coconut Grove, FL, Might likely have been each carrying a small FLIGHT BAG like the one I recently uncovered in our garage while making use of our "Stay-at-Home" CoVid-19 time.
  15. I would offer MARKET VALUE and/or to the CHARITY OF HIS CHOICE- It seems the "right" thing to do
