September 9th Meeting

We will have a meeting, at Golden Corral, Thursday September 9th.

 

KARC Cruise-In

KARC will have a Cruise-In, at the Fort Henry Mall, on October 9th from Noon until 4pm. We’ve had flyers printed. They will be available, at Thursday’s meeting, for members to distribute.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

The Broad Street Cruise-In for the FOP had over 300 cars, trucks, motorcycles, and a Vintage camper in attendance last month.

 

Also, it was great to get to see our friend and fellow KARC member Dick Cartwright and Susie out and about!

 

Several members are carpooling to the Dixie Gas and Pump Show on 411 between Newport and Sevierville early Thursday morning. They always have a huge number of vendors for collectible gas pumps, signs, and license plates along with who knows what for sale. Then members will head back for our meeting and return to Shades show early Friday for their show and flea market finds!

 

Mikel Smith of the legendary “Butcher Shop” is currently installing a 2017 Gen2, Coyote 5.0 engine and trans in Buckshot’s 1965 Ford pickup, with “help” from the guys pictured below. Custom trans mount was fabricated and installed as well as having Bowman cut the driveshaft to length. Shifter linkage is installed and Mike is working on the wiring to crank up soon. With the Crown Vic front end previously installed, this is going to make Buckshot a fine driver.
