Condolences

William Hammond passed away on October 26th. Bill was a Lifetime Member of KARC. Please keep Tim, Randy, Tammy and the Hammond family in your thoughts and prayers.

 

Veteran’s Day

It is Veteran’s Day, as I work on this newsletter. We have many KARC members, friends and most all have family members who are past and present veterans of the Armed Forces. Heartfelt thanks to all that have served.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

Thanks to Sid Vicars for the following:

KARC member David Davis has retired from his home heat and air business.   After 36 years, David has decided to sell his business to a trusted co-worker.   As a number of KARC members had new HVAC units installed by David’s business, we thought it pertinent to let everyone know that the business is in good hands, and all of David’s previous friends and customers will still be served by the new owner.  The phone number David had is still the number to call.  We wish David well.  He now has lots of time for the grandkids, and for building more great hot rods.  No excuses now for missing club meetings or taking in local car shows.

 

Club member Doug Phillips has purchased a really nice 65 SS Impala with a big block and 4 speed.  The color is almost Don Juan Red, with mostly red interior and a split bench seat.  Doug said his grandfather had owned one when Doug was a kid and had been searching for the right one for years. The SS was painted and restored 20 years ago and had been in a nice storage facility for the last 20 years.  The car has a good story to tell, and Doug can give it at the Nov. club meeting.

Charlie Ball is taking care of the car show T shirts and sweatshirts, and reports he has a good number of them left.  It has been suggested we discuss, at the Nov. meeting, how to price them so we can move them out.

 

Steve Painter has reported that he now has his LS1 engine with accompanying 6-speed up and running in his nice 55 Chevy.   Steve elected to modify the factory wiring harness rather than buy an aftermarket harness, and he can tell you of some of the trials and tribulations of that decision.

 

Sid Vicars has purchased a ‘63 Chevy II for his wife Kathy.  It is a 4 door, 6 cylinder, power glide with 48,000 original miles on it.  Kathy took an instant like of the all original look.  Frank Carr had found the Nova in Colonial Heights.   Frank’s buddy Greg Tyndall subsequently bought it, and Sid purchased the Nova from him.  The deuce had original interior with a Sears under dash AC unit.  Kathy wants it kept with its original look.

 

Mark Warner has successfully invented a new paint color which he calls Don Juan Red.  He says Don Hughes’ ‘39 Chevy was close but not exact.   So far PPG and DuPont have not tried to buy the secret formula.

 

KARC Club member Bill Pettis has a really nice new ride. He says he should have it at the November meeting. Weather permitting.
