Cruise to Wheels Through Time

KARC Fall cruise to Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum will be Saturday October 27th. We will make arrangements on when and where to meet at this month’s meeting. We will cruise to the museum, in Maggie Valley, NC. We will also eat at Butts On The Creek BBQ which is close-by the museum.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

Thanks to the Mayor of Muddy Creek for most of the input.

 

We have Hurd that one of our club's more prominent members is now working undercover for the state of Virginia checking the accuracy of their State Troopers' radar guns. So far, he has found them to be painfully accurate. Also, Bill has been recovering nicely after having three more aneurysms repaired.

 

Maynard Ketron is offering a preventive maintenance program for street rods. This service is available to all club members.

 

Fred Dotson's 1970 ElCamino won a top 25 pick at Allandale.

 

Gary Whittington is still working on his 65 Mustang project. He’s purchased a new steering column, and has been working on plumbing the A/C. Meanwhile, at the Fall Rod Run, in Pigeon Forge, Gary came across a gold 69 Mustang coupe he couldn’t come home without.

 

Perry Stapleton's '87 Grand National lost power on the way to Somerset. After spending three hours in a Corbin Auto Zone parking lot trying to find the problem Perry, Sid and Dick agreed, a rollback ride to Yuma was the best solution. It turned out that a defective mass air flow sensor was the problem. An aftermarket unit had been installed, but didn't help, it took a genuine GM part to cure the problem. Now Perry can get back on his Nova.

 

Charlie Ball has done a beautiful job repairing the rust damage on his F1's rear fenders.  Sid and Dick were there to help and provide expert advice. The next step in this project is yet to be determined.

 

Randy and Betsy Bledsoe, Stan and Jenny Bledsoe, Tony and Eileen Coltharp, Dick Cartwright and Susie, Rayford Dingus and Daniel Gibson went to the Winnsboro South Carolina Rock Around The Clock Show. They were treated to the usual Winnsboro hospitality and FOOD! The weather was beautiful. There was a rather suspect door prize, Rayford won the original steering wheel for his '61 Corvette. You just can’t beat that Carolina bunch!!!
