Gabe you said it all. I don't know if I'll ever make it to Wauseon but there is a special feeling that one gets by being associated with this group of people and cars. 
Thank You All

Well, 
There's about another 8 hours left of the virtual show. Most of us would have already been well on our way home from the regular show. I sit here on a beautiful Michigan evening relaxing tonight when I would normally still be unpacking from the weeks vacation. So 2020 didn't turn out like we all planned. We didn't travel from all corners of the country to that little fairgrounds in Wauseon, OH for our family reunion. This year our family reunion travelled to us via the web. It's not the same experience we planned on but it sure was fun! Thank you to our CAC board members for putting together the virtual show. Thanks to all of you that made videos to keep it even more interesting. Thanks to all of you that participated in the virtual show. It was great to see all of your cars and displays. Some of which may never make it to the regural show. In the mean time, I hope you all find a few local shows to enjoy safely. 
Thanks, Gabe.

Re: Spark Plugs?

Andy Farley
 

I did some research and decided to put autolite 306 spark plugs in to see if they give me any improvement. The 306 are a little hotter plugs. I gapped them at 28 thousandths instead of 25 because I'm running a 12v system with 65 Chevy coil. I'm pleased to report that there is a very noticeable improvement. Smoother idle and quicker response to the throttle.

LE,
   Thanx for the response.
   I checked with the guys at YnZ Parts & they say it's "Cross". So White - Blk Cr. Tr. is a White wire with a black cross tracer.

*Update for everyone*

After assessing the photos and talking to Spencer (owner) I have decided that this car is worth saving. The floors are too rotten to salvage but the body and frame are good. 

So what to do? Well its heavily expensive for a full restoration so instead this will become the New England Chapter's official Take-Apart-Car. You may remember the one from nationals last year and it was good fun so I'd like to make a second one for the New England area. We'll bring it to shows and scouting jamborees for people to view and even compete with.

I felt this would be the best for this car to give it a new life rather than ditch in the woods or scrapped.

We will be picking it up next week.

The problem is that it is stored at a building he no longer rents and the owner has loaded it on a trailer and plans to take it to recycling next week if someone doesn't take it. He says if he gets a serious taker he will try to stall the fellow.

The fellow walking toward the car gave it a good looking over, turned toward us, and asked "where's the rest of it?"   One of the better lines I've heard.
He turns out to be a collector of Triumphs and Packards.

Last time I was at Tiny’s, with my son Jeremy, late last Summer. No Crosleys. Guess that will have to do. Nearest Ice Cream stand to where we live in TN is about 20 miles away, long drive in a FarmOroad at close to 100 degrees.
