Its that time of year again, I have to trade the car tools for a rake. Id like to thank Ray Jones for hosting the spring meet in Arkansas. A family medical issue forced us to cancel our meet plans at the last minute. I hear a local collector happened to see letter cars at the hotel and generously invited the whole group to see his private collection. Everyone raved about it.
Mark Souders, Tony Bevaqua and Tony Rinaldi hosted the fall meet. Were used to the letter cars getting attention at our meets, but this meet was something out of the ordinary. Our cars were gathered at a special display within the Macungie show. Thousands of visitors stopped to view the cars and hundreds chatted with the car owners. It did more to educate folks about letter cars than anything weve done in past. Good stuff!
A special thanks to Noel Hastalis, John Lazenby, Michael Burke and Bob Merritt for accepting nominations to run for the board of directors positions. We are lucky to have such qualified candidates. Its a shame we can only elect three. Welcome aboard John Lazenby, Michael Burke and Bob Merritt.
The Macungie event report is posted. Thanks to the contributors for sending in pictures and videos.
The Club Store has two new products, the parking brake cable for the F&G and the parking brake cable for the H. You can read more about them in Tech Articles.

I am part of the Keeneland Concours deElegance here in Lexington, Kentucky. We want to get the word out about next years event (July 16, 2016), so Chrysler car owners can be thinking about coming to our event here in beautiful thoroughbred horse country. As part of next years event, one of my goals is to put together an exclusive class of nice Chrysler 300 Letter cars. Click the photo below for more information or email me at
