When is this
"Old enough to know better"
supposed to kick in?

I never argue.
I just explain why I am right.

Why is 'abbreviated'
such a long word?

I have two event reports; Chryslers at Carlisle, and the event report for our spring meet in Holland, Michigan. The Holland report includes the presentation of the lifetime achievement award to Gil Cunningham -- something you won't want to miss.
This edition of our newsletter will be the last issue before our Elkhart Lake meet. If you are thinking of attending, everything you need to know is below. See you there!

Restoration Spotlight

Reproduction Part Spotlight RP-0902 the Hurst Door Pulls.

These pulls will be available to you on an exchange basis, meaning I have to get your cores sent to me first to use for the next guy. It does not matter what condition they are in, or the color the cores are, they just need to be 1970 and not 1971's, as the 71's are different.

They will cost $200.00 US a pair plus shipping, and again on an exchange basis only. Also if anyone has 1970 cores please contact me as that would help other guys out to reduce their waiting time. Eventually I hope to build enough of them to make them available at our club meets for our members. Jamie Hyde, Reproduction Parts Chairman. Contact by email at or 585-465-0067

Did you know Gary Goers has new heel plates and pads? The plates have the correct finish for the F and G, and although they will fit the H and J the surface design isn't right for those cars. The plates are his part number 716, currently priced at $185 + shipping. He also offers the rubber inserts (part number 539, 6 pieces for $50 if ordered with the plates). I just bought a set and I think these are good, quality parts.

Here you see the automatic steering wheel clock that came as an accessory for the 300 Bs. We found one of those very rare items and had to rebuild it completely to get it back to work.
It is fantastic and overwhelming to say the least to see this rare piece of technical art work and sit right in front of your face. I hope someone will share my joy and maybe there are colleagues at the 300 Club that share a comparable experience.

John Holst writes: I found another hard to locate but necessary part that I just used on my K. While working on the sending unit the new gasket furnished was junk. Then found this on Ebay and for $5.99 PPD was a good find. The store is at Their part no. was LO-006. Using their locator menu it only works for 1964 and 1965. Tried earlier and no go. May be of use for the right person instead of scrounging thru the junk yard.

I learned something at the Mopar Nationals: the rear ashtray on 1967 Chargers is the same as the '60 - '64 300 console ashtrays. Maybe you already knew that. If not, here is another source for a used ashtray assembly.

Write us with whatever might be on your mind.
If you like picture puzzles, here are new ones.
Take your pick of "Ann Armstrong's 62", "Chrysler Turbine Car", or "Holland, Michigan."
Those Were The Days

From our meet in 2002, Newport Rhode Island. That is our meet host Don Verity in the trunk of his G.
The trunk lock had broken. Unfazed, Don removed the rear seats,
crawled into the trunk and released the lock.
