Condolences

KARC member Rayford Dingus’ mother Hazel passed away July 13th. Please keep Rayford and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

 

T-Shirts

The remainder of the T-shirts from the car show were sent to Whitesburg, KY to help clothe those that lost so much in the floods. Please keep the flood victims in your prayers.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

Several members, including Tim, Jerry, Bruce, Don, Freddy, Mike, Daris, Lyle, Buckshot, Perry, Mark, Doug, David, Thomas, Gary and friends from Kingsport, Newport and Pineville made the trip to Louisville for the Street Rod Nationals. Former KARC member Jaret Gaither came down from his home in Indiana to hang out, for the weekend. Apologies if I missed anyone who was there.

Problems and mishaps were minor. One member had a starter solenoid and fan relay issue. Another had an old fuel line, that didn’t want to stop leaking, and had to scramble to find -6 AN fuel fittings to use with new hose, for the drive home. Yet another member decided to bounce his car off the curb in the hotel parking lot, bending the exhaust just a bit.

A red ’39 Chevy was seen being used as a mosquito repellant machine.
