So what do you think about the Corvette being selected as Indy 500 pace car for the fourth year in a row?
For nearly three decades I have worked for a company that publishes an Old Cars Price Guide and I still dona€™t know how important such information is to the average old-car hobbyist. As anyone involved in this pastime knows, a a€?grayinga€? of car collectors has been a concern of clubs, hobby vendors and show promoters for years.
There are two things you can do in the winter a€“ sit around and wish it was summer or ignore the cold and enjoy your hobby. I love funny little stories related to the old-car hobby that you hear from people writing letters to Old Cars Weekly or talking to staff members at car shows.
This second story was told to me by a Bugatti enthusiast, after I told him one of my friends owned a restored Austin A90 Atlantic convertible a€“ a British model that looks like a full-size Dodge-a€™em car.
Like most old-car hobbyists I sell an item now and then through ads in OLD CARS WEEKLY or a club newsletter or even via the Internet. This made me think, a€?What an unusual car to turn up in Germany!a€? The a€™42 Pontiac is a rarity even here in the United States.
Of course, the Mainland was never bombed, but the war started and car production was halted. What this hobby needs is something like the street-rod hobbya€™s a€?Fellow Pagesa€? system.
Over the weekend I read where Corky Coker and his classic-car tire company down in Chattanooga are going to sponsor a couple of new awards for people who actually drive their collector cars. With all of the advice and stories we print in Old Cars, Ia€™m just waiting for readers to ask if we practice what we preach.
Am I wrong?  Don't you remember when you could buy an old car to fool around with and still have enough left to pay your bills?  Don't you remember when young people could afford to own old cars? An Australian farmer gave Ford's "Down Under" branch the idea for the first Ute back in 1933.
How many old-car hobbyists remember the days when putting your car in a show didn't cost a red cent and it was free - or maybe a buck - to pass through the gate as a spectator?
Over the weekend I was doing some research on vintage pickup trucks and I ran through my modest collection of the magazine now called Vintage Truck.
The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident i??and fatalities in school zones. When seat belt legislation was first passed it was viewed legally as a secondary offense meaning the officer could not make a traffic stop for the infraction.
The Chicago Police Department presented a PowerPoint presentation of training and use of laser systems by the Department. The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident and fatalities in school zones.A  TSU intends to use SMLa€™s long term study of cell phone use in school zones in Illinois, Colorado, and Texas completed in late 2009. Both research projects will be combined for national publication in police and public safety publications.A  Analysis has been made in Mississippi, Alabama, and Colorado. The Annual Test will take place in El Paso on a test course SML has used for the past ten years.
Both El Paso and Las Cruces enacted city-wide bans on hand held cell phone use while driving in early spring of 2010. Digital Ally has renamed the new entry Laser Ally.A  See Digital Allya€™s website for specifications and details about the new entry.
The one time my cars were valued by an outside appraiser, I thought the values he came up and his explanations for them were silly.
Do you get a convertible top boot, the T-top storage bag, the ownera€™s manual or an extra set of keys?


Ia€™m not sure if it was in South America or Africa, but he said that there were rules that no one was supposed to bring anything in with them. This man said he had bought the same type of car for $1,500 in the early a€?50s when he worked in Viet Nam.
Last weekend I made such a sale to a man from Germany and he sent me an email to wrap up the purchase. The way it works is the National Street Rod Association publishes a little book listing hobbyists willing to help you if your street rod breaks down while traveling in their area.
Now, I dona€™t think editors should be eligible for awards, but I sure dona€™t need any award to drive my old cars a€” just salt-free roads.My cars come out in April and have been seen on Wisconsin highways as late as mid-December.
Before the year was over, General Motor's Holden branch had its own design and it became the number 1 Ute maker.
SMLa€™s role was to describe to the members the history of lasera€™s use by law enforcement, present a summary of legal cases from around the country on laser use by law enforcement, and a description of the scientific principles involved in laser assessment of speeds.
Las Cruces recently passed a ban on all hand held cell phone use in the city of 100,000.A  El Paso, Tx, some 45 miles away passed a similar ban by a city council vote of 5-3.
It further intends to use SMLa€™s research of compliance with the new law related to enforcement of the legislation. Such a listing is necessary to compile reliable data on cell phone use before and after causation. SML intends to expand the sample size to include New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona in the final analysis. By attaching speed displays to patrol units via a standard 2a€? trailer hitch, many objections of speed displays are eliminated.A  The use of radar trailers is cumbersome and requires a spot to set them up. The TruCam also features a built-in GPS module along with video capability.A  Other attempts have been made to mate a digital camera with laser guns. Officers will also be required to estimates speeds and distances of vehicles in the establishment of a valid visual tracking history. The Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) and many car museums have programs to fight this trend. Take along a high-intensity mini flashlight.5) Bright ideaMost old cars have nice shiny chrome, but will it stay that way? Among these are mini restoration courses at McPherson College between regular semesters, Ron Fourniera€™s sheet metal class, the British restoration classes that John Twist and Carl Heideman present in Michigan and the Cobra kit car building seminars at Mott Community College in Howell, Michigan.
While he was there, a movie company came to town and offered to rent his car to use in their motion picture.
Ia€™ve been collecting Pontiacs for 35 years and I have only seen three or four 1942 in that time. The club magazine often prints stories about how the a€?Fellow Pagesa€? helped someone get their car fixed a€“ and also make a new friend.
It had been several years since I had last been at the museum, and I only recognized a couple of the cars.
But now therea€™s more.To continue the communication-driven spirit of Old Cars, blogs have been unveiled on the Old Cars Web site as a new method of contact between Old Cars staff members and readers.
Kind of like "Bunkie" Knudsen taking the "suspenders" off the '57 Pontiac at the last minute, I decided that this book could be made extra-special with some 11th hour tweaks in the design of its pages. My collection is far from complete, but it does cover a wide range of years back to the early 1990s.
SML also presented to the members Illinois use and legislative approval of laser based photo systems used in Illinois work zones per the legislature approved law 625 ILCS 7-Automated Traffic Control Systems in Highway Construction and Maintenance Zones.
Radar Signals replaces the newsletter Radar Waves.A  Radar Waves is updated every three months. With laser guns, SML recommended to the court a Daily Laser Verification Log be kept by all officers using laser guns for speed enforcement.A  This log contains daily checks of the laser gun before it is put into speed enforcement use and includes a Known Distance Test and Vertical and Horizontal Sight Alignment test. However, these attempts have been bulky and heavy.A  The TruCam gives police agencies evidence of speeding inA  a compact package easily used by one officer. The story was spammed all over the Internet and made it into the DETROIT NEWS.  So, guess what happens? After 29 years in these environs, Ia€™ve learned how salt can devastate Detroit iron in no time flat Driving older cars (on salt-free roads) has thrilled me since I first got my drivera€™s license in 1965. The selection was also good, and it appears that the museum was keeping up with hobby trends. On a regular basis, members of the Old Cars staff will post stories of our travels, experiences and thoughts on these blogs, sometimes with photographs. I'll just stay home in my garage, turn on the TV, crack open a beverage and have some free old-car fun like I used to in the good old days. And rummaging through all those issues reflects how the pickup truck collecting hobby has brown over those years. SML called for a standardized training program with strong recommendations on re-certification of tuning forks, radar and laser guns, and officers. Police laser guns are distance measuring devices first patented for police speed enforcement use by Laser Technologies Inc., LTI, in 1989.
All of these assessed work zones had different work zone speed limits ranging from 50 mph-60 mph.
A unique feature of the TruCam is DBC or Distance Between Cars.A  This feature automatically monitors a lead vehicle and trailing vehicle to report if the trailing vehicle is traveling too close to the lead vehicle resulting in a citation. A third criteria will be the officers presenting to the class a thirty minute presentation for evaluation. Instead of getting paid for this like a "publicity machine" should, he gets hassled by the police and loses his job. If the pace car is the same a few years in a row, it seems to take away from the excitement of the event. We pointed out that his a€?rock bottoma€? price was $600 higher than the one in the first guide he directed us to. The a€?Hot Dawga€? heater being advertised in many hobby publications is a great unit to start with. During the filming, the car was stolen, so the movie company gave him another $1,500 for it. Leta€™s create a network that will make us all feel safer when wea€™re driving our classic car far away from home. There was a Plum Crazy Hemi a€?Cuda, an unusually correct (and very nice driver-quality) Amphicar, 1938 Maybach convertible sedan said to have been owned by a Nazi general and a a€?General Leea€? 1969 Dodge Charger stated to have been used in filming of the TV series.I really a€?duga€? the museuma€™s 1936 Auburn convertible coupe, 1932 Plymouth coupe, Cord L-29 sedan and 1928 Hudson rumble-seat coupe. Of course, when you get to n event today, you're likely to encounter valet parking, private dining areas and all sorts of "options" that cost even more. The first police laser was sold in 1991.A  Laser for laser enforcement has been with us longer than the internet.


Females were twice as likely to be on their phones in both groups compared to male drivers. All work zones were on interstate highways with speed limits ranging from 70 mph to 60 mph before and after the work zone speed limit. In the end, GM didn't have him arrested, but the trucking company handed him his walking papers. All Ia€™m saying is I dona€™t have a constant need to worry about the values of my old cars. Last summer, when I passed kids in my old sports car, they pointed and waved like never before. Check the entire piece carefully and use an inspection mirror to view as much as you can of the non-plated side.
With heat in your a€?car spacea€? you can spend those long winter nights getting your car in top shape for next yeara€™s shows.4) Visit a new-car show in your area. Ia€™m a sucker for a 1957 Oldsmobile Holiday, and there was a a€™57 Olds Ninety-Eight Holiday sedan in a great green shade on display. So far, John Gunnell, who was been associated with Old Cars for nearly 30 years, and Auction and Technical Editor Ron Kowalke and I will be posting blogs that we hope will entertain you or get you thinking about trends in the hobby.
People restore their trucks in various colors and trademarks and seem to enjoy every aspect of the hobby from restoration to car shows.
The first working laser was introduced by Theodore Maiman in 1960 and was immediately put into use by NASA measuring the distance from the earth to the moon and determining the speed of rotation of both celestial bodies.A  As a result of SMLa€™s testimony, all defendants were found guilty and the court issued judicial notice on all laser and radar speed enforcement system used by the departments.
SML reviewed research from various state DOTs and federal agencies all agreeing drivers drive the speed they feel a€?reasonable and prudenta€? regardless of the posted speed limit. On the other hand, twice a year I do a remote radio broadcast with a station in Charlotte during which people call in for old-car information.
You may see rust starting to form that will eventually spread and reach the surface.6) Interior motivesSeat materials and colors should match those in sales literature. He used the a€?other factorsa€? defense and we asked him what factor he was thinking about? Many of these events include vintage cars Also, youa€™ll have the opportunity to pick up sales literature for your collection. Course, the Hemi a€?Cuda wasna€™t bad, either!I was also able to spot a few treats for my coworkers. SML is working with several manufacturers to have the display move showing approaching vehicle speeds under patent applied for provisions.
SML did notice in both El Paso and Las Cruces a greater number of drivers using hands free devices in making calls while driving.A  This research is to be nationally published and forwarded to Texas State University for review. A total sample size of 4,413 vehicles were assessed for their speed in work zones with a Kustom Signals Inc.
With few exceptions, they want to know how much their old car is worth and I tell them to get Old Cars Price Guide. Ron Kowalke would love to make a stock car out of an old a€?Squarebird,a€? and the museum had a replica 1959 Thunderbird that replicated the Holman Moody-prepped NASCAR machine. ProLaser III tied to a laptop containing Kustoma€™s LaserStat program which automatically accumulates individual work zone speed limit compliance percentages. A year from now, GM will be sending the press advance photos of the Blue Devil with some arbitrary embargo date and begging reporters to publicize the car.
Cartoon a€?car-actersa€? like Lightning McQueen, Sally Carrera and Tow Mater have young kids excited about cars again.
Just before moving, he received a call from a local fellow who said, a€?Ia€™m the man who stole your car and I liked it so much while I had it that I would like to buy it back. None of my cars are real a€?show cars,a€? but they are good a€?10-footers.a€? With a little maintenance work, they are nearly as reliable as new cars -- and they always get more looks than a brand new car, unless ita€™s something special like a Solstice or Cobra. Keith Mathiowetz is restoring an Amphicar, and the car in the Museum was a twin to his car.Ellingson not only displays great cars, it offers some of its cars and those of others for sale. Research conducted by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A & M University in their published article Effect Of The Work Zone Double Fine Law In Texas found such restrictions as doubling speeding fines and signs had no effect on the average speed of drivers. Ia€™d like to see a group like ARMO (the Auto Restoratorers Market Organization) come up with its own cartoon characters to excite kids about old cars. Get hold of a copy of Writera€™s Market and youa€™ll find listing that tell you which publishers accept free-lance stories.7) Look for indoor car shows like the a€?World of Wheels.a€?8) If you have time to kill during the winter, why not organize your garage or shop better? Since the man was moving and had to get rid of the car anyway, he sold it to the their for .
Think of all the money Ia€™m saving with my old cars.Corky will be glad to hear that, in the spring, summer and fall, I drive the old cars every day. Ita€™s a great way to keep money flowing in and the establishment open, and it gives local car enthusiasts a place to sell a car. Check all gauges to make sure that temperature, charging rate and oil pressure are within factory guidelines. Put your car magazines, sales literature, automobilia, petroliana, toys and models and other motoring memorabilia in order. In fact, if I dona€™t drive them a€” like now in December a€” I start getting withdrawal symptoms. I also noticed that the museum has a club room, which I assume is used by local clubs as a meeting area. Your carpets should fit like a glove and openings around seat frames should have clean cuts, possibly with piping around the opening. Do a road test to see if the transmission shifts smoothly, the ride and handling characteristics are up to snuff, the rear axle is quiet, the tires track properly, the brakes function properly, the convertible top rattles and so on. Projects like these can make a long winter fly by.10) Continue your summer cruise nights in winter.
Leave your old car home and meet at a restaurant or fastfood eatery to a€?bench racea€? (also known as BSing).11) Visit a classic car auction. Rubber weather stripping keeps out moisture,  quiets the interior and prevents loose and rattling doors. Check the weather stripping on doors, trunks, removable hardtops or T-tops and don't accept poor quality.7) Rust BusterMetal parts can be attacked by corrosion. Look for oil thrown up on the floorboards above the rear axle a€?pumpkin.a€? Check for brake fluid running down the tires, a sign of leaky wheel cylinders. Get out your over-sized magnifying glass and look for anything that isna€™t the way it should be.
