Members News

Buckshot Elliot has sold his beautiful '30 A Model sedan to fellow club member Freddy Collins.

 

Club members Bruce Roberts, Perry Stapleton, Buckshot Elliot, and Freddy Collins went to the Turkey Run in Daytona. Bruce said the car corral was full, the flea market was OK and there were several new parts vendors. Most of the cars in the car corral were newer stuff, goods in the flea market were well picked over, and the weather was/is beautiful.

 

Bill Pettis is in the midst of yet another project. Bill decided if he is to ever drive this '40 Ford pickup in this life he needed outside help. Bill enlisted the help of the Barillo Brothers in Knoxville, he figures if their work is good enough for Bobby Alloway it is good enough for him. They have made a lot of progress in a little time. The pictures Bill sent show beautiful workmanship.

The pickup features a Pete and Jake's frame, a 330 Desoto Hemi engine, a turbo 350 transmission, Bronco 9" differential, Chassis Engineering leaf springs, dropped front axle and a 525 steering box.

Bill will be plumbing fuel and brake lines, as well as installing brakes, glass and the wiring harness.

He is currently looking for a good paint and body man that needs some work.

Doug Phillips reports he is staying as busy as he wants to building SB1 Chevrolet engines, and like the rest of us is staying close to home during the pandemic

 

I (Dick) found a new home for my Volkswagen beetle, a 43 year young man that loves cars.

With the help of Charlie Ball and Sid Vicars I spent an afternoon looking for a parasite electric load on the '77 Nova (which just happens to be for sale). After pulling all fuses and disconnecting the alternator there was still a 300 milliamp drain. Any and all ideas are welcome.

 

During this time of separation I will appreciate any and all news of member's projects so they can be shared in the newsletter. Damn, I miss you guys!
