KARC Club Cruise To Natural Tunnel

The afternoon of Sunday October 1st will be a club cruise, to Natural Tunnel. A large picnic shelter (Shelter #3) with several picnic tables and power has been reserved for the day. Plans will be made, at the September meeting, for departure location and meeting time for the cruise. BBQ vendor details and costs should also be available by this month’s meeting and will be discussed then.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

Dick reports:

The engineering firm of Ball, Vicars, and Cartwright did an extensive study on why Charlie's '37 Ford didn't stop as well as it should. After figuring master cylinder bore ratios and mechanical advantages we reached an eighth grade general science conclusion: the longer a lever is, the harder it can mash. Charlie now has good brakes.

 

Shades of the Past

Around a dozen members attended the 2017 Shades of the Past show in Pigeon Forge.  Randy Bledsoe's '34 coupe is on its way to a new home in Newport, TN. After much negotiating Rayford Dingus struck a deal to sell his '59 Ford convertible, unfortunately the prospective buyer couldn't "ahem" find his checkbook. To add insult to injury Rayford lost a rather large cash bet on whether the deal would go through.

Biggest news of the weekend came from the drawing for the Shades of the Past giveaway car. Jerry Collins won a beautiful ’32 Ford Roadster, built by Bobby Alloway’s Rod Shop. Bobby gave Jerry a personal demonstration of all the car’s features. Congratulations Jerry!
