Member Machines and Gossip

(Thanks to Dick for the input)

 

Gearstar has told Bruce Roberts his transmission is trashed and it is "his fault". Sounds sorta odd that after all the years and miles it had worked well the failure was caused by improper installation?

 

Sid Vicars has put interior colored (blue) steelies on Kathy's Chevy II.

 

Charlie Ball's '37 is up and running with his repurposed engine. Normal headaches, bad water pump and some wiring bugs.

 

I (Dick) am now back in possession of the '77 Nova I built for my daughter several years ago. The car has been parked 9 years. After some freshening up it will be looking for a new home.

 

After getting a price on re-covering the front seats in his Cutlass, Randy Bledsoe bought new covers and installed himself. He was assisted by Jenny, Stan, Betsy and Rayford. The end result is excellent, but what would we expect?

 

Daniel Gibson has bought a Vintage Air system for his Nova. He will be installing this as time permits during hay season.

 

Several club members went to the drag races in Union, South Carolina. Everyone has said it is a fantastic show and we should all plan to attend next year.

 

Don Hughes 39 Chevy is now home with beautiful new windows. Don says that Dan at Williams windows did a great job.

We will, once again, meet at my (Dick's) shop on the 11th instead of having our regular meeting. This ts not a club function. This is an opportunity for those who feel comfortable getting out to meet for some fellowship. Let's do like we did last month, pick up a burger on the way out and bring your favorite beverage and a lawn chair.

To get here go past Tri-Cities Airport and Northeast State on Highway 75 toward Blountville turn right on Muddy Creek Road, go 1.5 miles on Muddy Creek to Brown Circle, the shop is on the corner. If you need further directions call 323 7777.
