President's Message for January 2018

Posted by Chuck & Karen Dusenbery on January 2, 2018 at 10:30 PM

Model A Friends:

We are starting another year and we remember fondly the fun and fellowship we had last year. We started 2017 with our annual inspection day at Bill Harris’ Garage. This is a popular event. If you are new to the Model A Club, then you don’t want to miss inspection day. Some of our most experienced members will be there to help you check your car and show you some maintenance procedures that you can do. We will check fluid levels, lights, steering and brakes. Our members can show you how to adjust the brakes and how to set the ignition timing. They can instruct you in the use of the GAV (gas adjusting valve) and the spark advance. This year’s inspection day will be January 27 at Bill Harris Garage. Many of us will meet at Jim’s Café at 9:00 AM for breakfast and then move to Harris’ garage at 10:00 AM. We will adjourn to San Marcos for lunch. Bring your car if possible, but if not possible you can still watch and learn while we inspect other cars.

Our spring tour this year will be to Elk City, Oklahoma where we will visit the Route 66 Museum. Our hosts will be Kent and Jeanne Washburn of the Tulsa Club. Details are given in this issue of the Scuttlebutt.

If you check the listing of the 2018 board on this page, you will see that it is incomplete. We are in need of a vice president after VaughnCille Weidner found that she would be unable to be our vice president. This is an important office and we need someone to step up and help the club. We also need someone to be in charge of demonstrations at our monthly meetings.

I am looking forward to another fun year of fellowship and driving our Model A’s. I hope to see you on the road in 2018.

Jim Yates, 2018 president
