Re: Hot Shot / Super Sport Hood For Sale

I believe that is a Hot Shot hood.  If I remember correctly, the Super Sports hood clips were on the front and the lock to the rear.  They will actually work on either VC version though.

I had the pleasure of visiting with this fine gentleman while at the 2017 California meet.  Sorry to hear he has passed on.    I snapped this photo in Jewel Park, Pacific Grove, California.

I knew a guy in Indiana who mustered out of the military in Ohio a year or two after WW II. His dad bought him a new Crosley to celebrate. After driving it back across Ohio and Indiana to get home, he sold it immediately and bought a used Ford. “Never again,” he swore. Not so much because it broke, but because it was such a cheap, slow, uncomfortable little sardine can it scared him to drive it. This was an unsolicited story long before I owned my car.


Ironically, those are the same qualities I find endearing about my Crosley.

Hello All,
This Saturday, February 29, the Crosley will be transformed into an Art Car at the The Gasparilla Festival of the Arts in Tampa Florida. The event concludes on March 1. I will be posting photos over the weekend as the artist, Cam Parker, hand paints the theme selected for it. Right now, you can go to www.crosleygarage.com and read about the The Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Carmadafl and the artist..Carmada was founded by MItze Gordon. On her web site www.carmadafl.com
you can see all of the Art Cars that are driving around the Tampa Bay area today. I am proud to have had the Crosley selected to bo a part of this rollling art collection. One other note, The Firestion Grand Prix of Saint Petersburg is March 13 to the 15th. I 
volunteer with the Indy Show Car Them. We move 2 show cars to verious location for promotion of the race. One of the cars in the pole sitter fron the 2005 Indy and we let kids sit in it. If anyone is in St.Pete for the race, stop by the Mahaffee Theater ( in the race area)  and say hello. I will be on the south side of the theater near the straight away run into turn 10.

It is true that the early Crosleys were not universally loved.  My uncle (by marriage) told me that he was a Crosley dealer right after WWII.  He got a delivery of 6 Crosleys.  He said he sold those 6 cars many times because the new owners kept bringing them back demanding a refund.  It took him several years to stop being a Crosley dealer with only those 6 cars.

29th Orphan Car Tour Scheduled for June 6, 2020

Jim Bollman
 

Dozens of antique cars will take to the road on Saturday, June 6, as the 29th Orphan Car Tour gets underway. This year’s route runs from Burkittsville, Md. to Bluemont, Virginia, where participants will enjoy a late-afternoon dinner together. Along the way, drivers will pause to see several attractions including a car collection, an antique grist mill, and an auto restoration shop.

For years the Orphan Tour has provided owners of antique "orphan" (discontinued- make) vehicles the opportunity for a leisurely afternoon cruise over scenic, mostly-rural roads, traveling at their own pace. The Tour takes place in a different location each year around the greater Washington-Baltimore region. Cars manufactured as early as 1912 have been driven, and over sixty cars have participated on some Tours. Orphan nameplates glimpsed on a typical Tour can be as familiar as Pontiac, Mercury and Plymouth, and as obscure as Flanders, Hupmobile and Moline-Knight. The Tour is open to all “orphans" which are at least 25 years old.

Details for this year’s event are being finalized, and a flyer with complete information is scheduled for March. Updates will be published at the Tour’s website, http://www.orphancartour.org/. Further information is available from Jon Battle at (540) 364-1770, or via e-mail at tourdirector@....

The Tour's six sponsors -- all local chapters or regions of national clubs -- are the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the H-E-T Club, the DeSoto Owners Club of Maryland, the Keystone Region Chapter of the Studebaker Driver's Club (SDC), Mid-Atlantic Packards (a region of The Packard Club), The Potomac Region of the SDC, and The Potomac Ramblers (an affiliate of the AMO and AMCRC clubs).

Between adjusting the valves, aluminum cam cover and new exhaust my Crosley is quieter, seems to run smoother and seems to have more power. Thanks to all for the advice.
