Member Machines and Gossip

KARC members Perry Stapleton, Bruce Roberts, Mike Smith and buddy Pee Wee Phipps made the trip to Columbus for the Goodguys Nationals. Perry reported they had a good time. David Baker dropped in as a spectator.

 

Several KARC members made the trip to Louisville, for the 50th Annual NSRA Nationals, including Norman Davis, whose 220,000 mile ’37 Pontiac was looking so good, the editor thought it’d been re-painted. With the fear of accidentally skipping over someone, we’ll say there was approximately 20 members present. The weatherman brought no rain, just a lot of hot sun.

 

Nobody had a catastrophic failure, but, the hot weather helped attribute to several little issues. One Ford truck had a harmonic balancer separate. A Chevy coupe ran out of gas, but didn’t, which turned out to be a faulty fuel pump. Another member’s Model-A two door sedan had an electrical gremlin that kept peaking in and out. A bright yellow ’37 Ford limped home with a power steering leak. There was a burgundy old Plymouth that had to get a shot of ether every time we stopped for gas, to restart, as long as the temperature was above freezing. One member reported his silver Chevy II rear end was moaning, coming down the road. Rumor has it, Monday morning, a member walked into his garage to find a red puddle under his Suburban.
