Don Wolfe, long time area hotrodder passed away March 9th. Thoughts and prayers for Don and his family. Some members have informed me that
Don was the first president of Kingsport Antique and Rod Club. I am pretty sure he was one of the founding members.
KARC member Fred Hudson had a scare. Fred is back home after a brief stay at the hospital. Please keep Fred in your thoughts and prayers.
Car Show Flyers
Car show flyers are at the printers and are in the process of being printed.
Just a reminder. If you’ve not been able to make it to the last couple of meetings and haven’t paid 2019 dues yet, they are now due.
Member Gossip and News
Thanks to Charlie Ball for the pics and comments.
Perry’s Corvette engine is running great. Mike and White Knuckle Bruce took it for a test drive, after the Perry and Bruce test fit. One Bitchin’ ride, Perry.
Dad (Phil) and I (Gary) were looking at a radiator hose leak on my Plymouth. My grandson, Nolan, walked in, picked up a wrench and started helping. Apparently, Papaw needed to be tightening the hood latch instead of the hose clamp.
