SPRING DRIVING TOUR TO YUENGLING BREWERY & JERRY'S CAR MUSEUM

This is a tour that we think everyone will really enjoy. The date is Saturday April 21, 2012.
Our destination will be Pottsville (Schuylkill County), PA.

We will meet for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at the Midway Diner near Bethel, PA (I-78 at Exit
16). This is a really nice family owned diner that has been there since 1950. It is mid-way
between Harrisburg and Allentown. It has a good diverse menu; you can get more
information including GPS directions at the website, www.midwayholdings.com.

After we leave the diner, it will take about 35 minutes to drive to our next destination, the
oldest operating brewery in the United States. Of course, this is the Yuengling Brewery,
501 Mahantongo st, Pottsville, PA 17901. We have scheduled a guided tour of the
Brewery beginning at 10 a.m. sharp. There is a municipal parking garage right down
the street, and it is not crowded on weekends, so there will be no problem with parking.

Yuengling Brewery was established in 1829, and is still operated by the Yuengling family.
The tour is extremely interesting. It lasts about one-and-a-half hours, and it is a real
factory tour, so closed shoes are required. The tour involves a good bit of walking, and
going up and down stairs, but we will have time after that to sample the merchandise and
explore the gift shop. For more information, visit the website at www.yuengling.com.
After this visit, you will know why many locals consider "Vitamin Y" to be part of their daily
nutrition requirement.

When we leave the Brewery, there is no need to get in our cars -- we will walk three or four
blocks through historic Pottsville to Jerry's Classic Cars and Collectibles Museum, at 394
South Centre Street. Jerry Enders has assembled a really interesting combination of
vintage cars and over 20,000 other collectibles of interest that will stir fond memories.
There are many other interesting items on display besides cars. This museum has a lot of
things that will remind us how our homes looked "back in the day", as well as local and
regional advertisements and other memorabilia. (You will see advertisements of the cars
for sale at Earl Stoyer Cadillac-Oldsmobile, back in the '50s. Unfortunately, they are not
still there at the same price -- I already checked!)



                                              3
Jerry's Museum does not open for the season until May, but they are opening especially
for us on April 21.      For more information, visit the Museum's webiste at
www.jerrysmuseum.com.

We expect to leave the Museum around 2 p.m. or so, and by then we will have worked up
an appetite. We will walk a few blocks to Roma's Pizza, at 116 W. Market Street, which
came highly recommended by locals who know where to get good food. Despite the
name, it is not just a pizzeria, it is a full service restaurant specializing in Italian food. You
can get a sandwich, a pizza, or a regular full meal. We can eat, relax, and talk about the
things we have seen, before leaving Pottsville to return home.

The cost (not much):

Breakfast at the Midway Diner and lunch/dinner at Roma's will be our usual deal of each
person pays his own check -- no need to pay in advance.

Yuengling Brewery tour costs $1.00 per person.

Admission to Jerry's Museum is $8.00 per person.

We will need a head count for this event, because both the brewery and the museum
need to know how many people to expect in our group. The brewery tour must be paid for
well in advance, but instead of asking you to send checks for $1.00, the Club will outlay
the money if you say you are coming.

Please notify Art Archambeault at 717-557-6974 or artarchambeault49@gmail.com,
no later than April 1 if you plan to attend.

Tips for this tour: Because we are having brakfast at 7:30 and will not have lunch until
about 2:15-2:30, bring snacks if you think you will need something to eat in between.
Comfortable walking shoes are a "must", and closed shoes are required for the brewery
tour.

[We have invited the Mason-Dixon Chapter of the Buick Club of America to join us for this
tour. The director of that club is Dick Beckley, who kindly invited our Club to visit his
private collection of antique cars on Sunday morning following our AACA Museum show
last July. The Buick Club has a well-attended annual show every June at Freysinger
Buick-GMC in Mechanicsburg. That show has always been exclusively for Buicks, but in
2012 it will be open to Cadillacs as well as Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, and GMCs. See
calendar note at p. -__.]



THE DAZZLING DE VILLE: THE ENVY OF AMERICAN MOTORISTS
Coupe deVille - 1949-1993
Sedan deVille - 1956-2005


                                                4
deVille convertible - 1964-1970

Some of you attended the Potomac Region show in October (see article at p. __), which
honored the "Dazzling deVilles" from 1949 through 1970. Since a great many of our
cherished collector cars are deVilles, I thought you might be interested in the history of
this model.

In January 1949, General Motors held a lavish car show in the Grand Ballroom of the
Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. This show was called "Transportation Unlimited", and
it was the forerunner to later Motoramas. At that show, GM unveiled several special show
cars, one of which was called "Coupe deVille" -- a pillarless two door hardtop on a Sixty
Special chassis.

It was not until much later in the model year -- July 1949 -- that Cadillac introduced the
Coupe deVille as a production car. It listed for $3,497, just slightly less than a convertible,
and only 2,150 were produced. Still, it caused a great sensation, and is considered as
one of the most beautiful Cadillacs ever built.

The Coupe deVille then became a standard part of the Cadillac line. To many observers,
the name "Coupe deVille" is synonymous with a Cadillac two-door hardtop, but in fact
Cadillac offered less expensive two door hardtop models as well. In 1950 and 1951 there
was a Series 61 Coupe and a Series 62 coupe in addition to the Coupe deVille. From
1952 through 1964, there was a Series 62 coupe priced below the Coupe deVille, and
from 1965 through 1976, the lower priced version was called the Calais.

As the 1950s dawned, the pillarless hardtop style continued to gain popularity. In 1956,
the deVille series grew to include a four-door Sedan deVille, with a body style derived
from the 1953 Orleans show car. The Sedan deVille was such a hit that it immediately
became the number-one selling Cadillac model in the first year it was introduced. In
1957 all Cadillacs except the limousines adopted the pillarless hardtop styling. In 1958,
that trend continued, but that year Cadillac tried an experiment for one year only -- the
Extended Deck Sedan deVille, which was several inches longer than the standard car, for
those who wanted the size of a Fleetwood Sixty Special but the styling and price of a
deVille.

From 1959 through 1964, the deVille series expanded to include two different versions of
the Sedan deVille -- one was the four window body style, and the other was the more
traditional six-window model. The 1959 through 1961 four window models are
sometimes referred to as "flat tops", because of their very flat rooflines with a radically
wrapped around rear windshield. In 1962 through 1964, the four window Sedan deVille
offered the four-door buyer a roofline that looked more like the Coupe deVille. In all these
years, the two versions were offered with no difference in price. From 1959 through 1962,
the conservatively styled six window model outsold the four window version, but in 1963
and 1964, the sportier looking four window version found more buyers.

From 1961 to 1963, there was yet a third version of the Sedan deVille, also offered at the



                                              5
same price. That was the short-deck version, which was seven inches shorter, with the
difference being in the trunk area. This model was intended for customers whose
garages were too small to accommodate the longer cars, or, as the name implied, people
who lived in big cities where parking spaces were tight. In 1961, the short-deck version
was a six-window Sedan deVille, but in 1962 and 1963, it was a four-window Sedan
deVille designated as the Park Avenue. The idea was good, but perhaps ahead of its
time, because there wasn't enough demand to continue the model, and it ended after the
1963 model year.

In 1964, the deVille series expanded to include a welcome addition -- the Cadillac
convertible. Cadillac convertibles always featured the higher line trim characteristics of
the deVille series -- leather interiors, standard power windows and seats -- but for some
reason they continued to be known as Series 62 convertibles all the way through
1963. Starting in 1964, the "regular" Cadillac convertible -- that is, the one that was not
an Eldorado -- was now a deVille rather than a Series 62. Another unusual development
in 1964 is that the deVille had a different transmission than the less expensive Series
62. The deVille had the new Turbo-Hydramatic transmission, while the Series 62
continued for one more year to use the older version of the Hydramatic. Maybe that
difference was an incentive to make the convertible a deVille -- it was an expensive car,
and it wouldn't be good marketing to equip the glamorous convertible with the
transmission that was being phased out.

From 1965 through 1970, there were again two different Sedan deVilles. This time, one
was a four-door pillarless hardtop and the other was a "pillared" sedan. Again there was
no difference in price -- you paid you money and you took your choice. Many more
buyers chose the sportier looking four-door hardtop version, so the "pillared" Sedan
deVille is a relatively rare car today. But in the sixties, most young men, and some older
men who wanted to look young, preferred the looks of a two-door car, and in that case,
the Coupe deVille was the car of choice.

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the deVille series represented the more highly trimmed
version of the Cadillac hardtops (and starting in 1956, the Cadillac sedans). Typically,
deVilles had power windows and power seats standard, while those features were
optional on the lower priced series. Also, deVilles had genuine leather upholstery in
place of vinyl (or as Cadillac called it, "coated fabric"). True, the Fleetwoods and
Eldorados were more expensive, but these were relatively low production cars, and rarely
seen even when new. For most of America, the Cadillac deVille represented the
quintessential American luxury car.

1970 marked the last year of production for the deVille convertible -- the last rear-wheel
drive Cadillac convertible, as well as the last year of GM's high compression V-8 engine.
From 1971 through 1993, the deVille series consisted of the Coupe deVille and the Sedan
deVille, and they were still extremely popular cars.

Both deVille models were pillarless hardtops from 1971 through 1973, but in 1974 the
Coupe deVille acquired a different roofline with a fixed rectangular rear window. The



                                             6
Sedan deVille remained a pillarless hardtop through 1976. The 1976 Sedan deVille was
the last pillarless hardtop body style offered by Cadillac -- the final chapter in the story of
an extremely popular body style introduced with the 1949 Coupe deVille.

Even after the downsizing of 1977, the Coupe deVille and Sedan deVille remained as the
mainstays of the Cadillac line-up. Both made the cuts when Cadillac downsized its big
cars in 1985, but both deVille models became front-wheel drive cars in that year. The two
deVille models continued through 1993, which was the last year of production for the
Coupe deVille. This ended a sensational 44 year run for a body style that inspired many
popular song lines, and many envious and admiring glances from men and women in all
walks of life. Tastes and styles had changed, and a two-door body style was no longer
considered essential for anyone who wanted a sporty looking car.

After the Coupe deVille was discontinued, the Sedan deVille remained, in three versions:
the basic Sedan deVille, the higher-trimmed luxury model (Sedan deVille d'Elegance),
and the high peformance model (Concours). By 1997 Cadillac dropped the word "Sedan"
and just called it the "deVille". In 1999 Cadillac commemorated the 50th anniversary of
the deVille series by creating a special 50th Anniversary version of the deVille. The
commemorative model sported diamond white exterior paint, and special insignias that
combined a large "V" with the number "50". These medallions appeared on the outside of
the car on the sail panel, and also were embroidered on the seat back upholstery.

The body style changed in 2000, but the deVille continued in production, although from
2000 through 2005, the two higher priced versions of the deVille were given alphabetic
names. The d'Elegance was renamed the "DHS" (the high luxury version), and the
Concours was renamed "DTS" (the high performance version), which presumably stood
for deVille Touring Sedan.

After 56 years, at the end of the 2005 model year, the deVille name was dropped from the
Cadillac line-up for good. In 2006, the full-size sedan became the DTS, regardless of trim
level. There were distinctions based on different option groups (three levels of luxury
packages, and a performance package), but they did not affect the name of the model,
which makes it difficult to differentiate between cars whose original list prices varied by
thousands of dollars.

Still, the vestigial initial "D" remained as part of the name. Those of us who are Cadillac
traditionalists know that the 2006 through 2011 DTS, with its full-size luxury and its
Northstar V-8, is, in spirit, a deVille Touring Sedan.

In May 2011, the DTS was discontinued permanently, as was its smaller brother, the STS.
Even in its last full year of production, the DTS outsold all other large luxury cars in the
United States, including the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS430 and
Lincoln Town Car. A stretched version of the DTS serves as the U.S. presidential
limousine. The last DTS to roll off the assembly line was a black car destined for the
collection of well known car collector Nicola Bulgari, a fitting conclusion for a proud model.




                                               7
In 2012, Cadillac will introduce a new sedan, the XTS, as a 2013 model. It will be a front
wheel drive car with a high performance six-cylinder engine -- bigger than the CTS, but
smaller than the DTS. Now even the letter "D" that remained from "deVille' will be gone,
and the deVille nameplate joins Eldorado, Fleetwood, Seville and other distinguished
Cadillac model names to take their places in history.

POTOMAC REGION's FALL SHOW AT CAPITOL CADILLAC SHOW SPARKLES
DESPITE A FREAK OCTOBER SNOWSTORM

On October 30, 2011, the Potomac Region CLC held its annual fall show at Capitol
Cadillac. Well in advance of the show, the Region received pre-registrations for 77 cars --
an all-time record. Based on that early response level, the Region expected a record
turnout; even more cars than the 115 cars that graced the "Fabulous Fleetwoods" event
the year before.

But a funny thing happened the day before the show. It snowed! Not just flurries, but real
accumulating snow, especially in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia, as well as
parts of Maryland. Your editor heard that the last time there was accumulating snow in
October in Lancaster, PA was 1973, and the time before that was 1940! Bob Crimmins
and Jeff Montgomery trailered Bob’s 1955 Coupe DeVille from New Jersey Friday to beat
the snow storm. Overall, quite a few of the pre-registered attendees were unable to
attend.

In spite of the stormy weather, Past CLC President Richard Sills and Shelley Chadick
welcomed over 40 out-of-town guests and Potomac Region members to a “Pre-Show”
dinnner on Saturday evening October 29 in the restaurant of the Greenbelt Holiday Inn.
Quite a few CLC members from Pennsylvania and New Jersey drove their daily drivers
instead of their pre-registered classics as a result of the snow in the Northeast. Jeremy &
Smokie Crews drove through sleet and rain from Richmond, VA in their all original 1962
Eldorado Biarritz (a triple-black car with only 25,000 miles) to attend.

CLC President Lars Kneller and his wife Jaunda flew in from Indiana, and CLC Northeast
Regional Vice President Andy Zizolfo and his wife Allene drove down from New York to
participate. Alan Clark, CLC Grand National Photographer, came from California to join
the group. There was plenty to eat and drink, and the conversations were lively.

While the dinner camaraderie was going on at the Holiday Inn, dealership preparations
were underway. Henry, Dan & JoJo Ruby delivered tables and supplies and prepared the
coffee pot and Danish, while the staff of Capitol Cadillac moved vehicles from the front
parking areas and cleared the show field. By Sunday morning, the storm was gone, but
the winter-like temperatures were still in the area. By 8:00 AM, the crew of volunteers had
arrived to begin registering and parking the cars. It soon warmed up to the mid 50s with
only a slight breeze. As a result, 62 cars arrived to participate in the event including 19
"Dazzling DeVilles" ranging from 1955 to 1970. Cars were driven to the show from five
states, representing four different CLC regions (seven regions counting the CLC




                                             8
members who attended without their cars). It was a terrific gathering of exceptional
automobiles, despite the inauspicious weather the day before.

DJ Mike Veilleux of Music Madness opened the show at 10:00 AM with the playing of our
National Anthem. Before long, the showroom and show field were filled to near capacity.
The "Dazzling DeVilles" on display are listed below.

Judging was done by the owners of the cars registered in the show (peer judging), except
for the Dealer’s Choice Award and Car Show Coordinator Award. Throughout the day,
many owners could be seen walking among the cars with their pencils and ballots in hand.
When the deadline for voting was reached, over 70% of the attendees eligible to vote had
submitted a ballot.

Before the awards program began, the Potomac Region’s Auctioneer Extraordinaire
George Boxley auctioned off the original painting done by Central Penn Region's own
Dan Reed. The painting was of the 1949 Coupe DeVille that was the basis for the
Potomac Region's dash plaque. It was an acrylic on canvas painting, 16 x 20, mounted in
a pecan wood frame, something that can be displayed and treasured forever. The
painting was created especially for the 2011 Fall Capitol Cadillac Show featuring the
Dazzling DeVilles. Dan chose to feature the landmark first year Coupe DeVille because
of its significance, and he chose to recreate the color scheme used in the 1949
advertisement, Triumph Blue body with a Horizon Blue roof. Richard Sills was the top
bidder who won the painting.

After the auction, Richard Sills, who served as the Master of Ceremonies, began the
awards presentation. He began by providing a brief history of the DeVille model. Then he



                                           9
introduced Potomac Region Director Vince Taliano who thanked Daniel Jobe and Capitol
Cadillac for hosting this remarkable show. Vince also acknowledged the club members
and other individuals who tirelessly helped with the production of the show.

Richard returned to the microphone and recognized the many CLC and regional
dignitaries in attendance before proceeding to introduce the stars of the show – every
pre-registered owner who brought a DeVille. Each of those DeVille owners was
presented with a framed certificate of appreciation for being a part of the "Dazzling
Devilles" event.

Next the 50/50 drawing was held, and the winner was the Raritan River Region’s Jeff
Montgomery, who also won last fall. Makes that trip home even more enjoyable!

Following the drawing, awards were presented to the first, second and third place winners
in each of the classes, and finally, the awards for Best Pre-War (Monroe Dorsey’s 1938
Cadillac Series 60 Special), Best Post-War (Paul Habicht’s 1959 Sedan DeVille) and Best
of Show (Randy & Susan Denchfield’s 1935 LaSalle Convertible Coupe). In addition,
Daniel Jobe presented the Dealer’s Choice Award to Jeremy & Smokie Crews for their
1962 Eldorado Biarritz. Debbie Piel announced that George & Rita Boxley’s 1960 Series
62 Coupe won the Ladies’ Choice Award donated by Brenda & Jim George. Henry Ruby
presented his Car Show Coordinator Award, which included a framed $100 bill, to
Preston Waters’ 1966 Calais Coupe. Lastly, the long-distance award was presented to
Central Penn Region member Dick Parsons of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, who edged out
by just a few miles Jeremy & Smokie Crews from Richmond, Virginia.

At the finale of the awards ceremony, a birthday cake was presented to Henry Ruby from
his family and friends to celebrate his 75th birthday, which fell on the day after the show.
Happy Birthday, Henry!!

After cake, the weekend of CLC fellowship drew to a close. The theme and date for the
2012 Fall Show have not yet been decided. But, before that, plan to attend the Potomac
Region’s Spring Car Show and Automobilia Auction which will be held on Saturday May 6,
2012.

THE "FROSTBITE RUN" -- A GREAT WAY TO START THANJKSGIVING DAY

Every year on the morning of Thanksgiving Day, the Historical Car Club of Pennsylvania
holds an event called the "Frostbite Run". The cars meet on the grounds of a historic
home called the Thomas Massey House in Broomall, PA., from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is just
a get-together of old cars and the people who like them -- no admission fees, no judging,
no awards (except a few fun awards, such as "dirtiest whitewalls"). The refreshments
consist of hot coffee, hot cider and donuts, to take the chill off the November morning.

The show grounds opened at 8 a.m. By 9 a.m., 283 cars had arrived and the show
grounds were full. The next 100-150 cars had to park in a lot down the street. My 1976
Sedan deVille was one of the newer cars in attendance. Al Peinhardt drove his pink 1959



                                             10
Cadillac coupe to the show from Lancaster.

There was a surprising number of pre-1920 cars, as there is every year at this show. You
don't see that often today. Some of the cars had very low number PA antique license
plates, indicating that their owners have been in the hobby for a long time. At the end of
the show, everyone got to watch the procedure for starting a Stanley Steamer, which has
a boiler under the hood. Steam cars are powerful and quiet, but it takes about a half hour
to get one started on a cold day, because the water has to reach a boiling point before it
generates enough steam to get the car running. Steam cars would not have been the first
choice of bank robbers who needed a quick getaway car.

After the show, some of the cars go on an organized run to a nearby inn or other
attraction, before everyone adjourns for Thanksgiving dinner. It is a great way to close
out the car show season.

CHEVROLET CENTENNIAL - NOVEMBER 3, 2011

Cadillac got all the attention in 2002 when it celebrated its 100th anniverrsary, but this year
it is Chevy's turn. Specifically, November 3, 2011 marked the 100th anniversary of the
bow-tie brand. Some consider the centennial year to be 2012, because the first Chevrolet
cars were 1912 models.

What's more, December 8, 2011 was the 150th birthday of William C. ("Billy") Durant,
born in 1861, an entrepreneur who had a major role in founding Chevrolet as well as
General Motors.

We think of Chevrolet as being Cadillac's GM sibling, but at the beginning, Chevrolet was
not part of General Motors at all. To understand the origins, we have to go back in history
several years before the first Chevrolet automobile was produced.

Before GM existed, Billy Durant had become the head of Buick Motor Company. In that
capacity, he became acquainted with Louis Chevrolet, a Swiss-born racing driver of
French descent, because Chevrolet drove Buicks in some promotional races. Mr. Durant
had a vision of creating a varied line-up of automobiles targeted to various incomes and
tastes. (This was in contrast to the approach of Henry Ford, who thought the Model T was
all the car anyone needed.) With that goal in mind, Durant founded General Motors in
1908. He invested $2,000 of his own money, and immediately offered stock that raised
$12 million in less than two weeks. With these funds, GM purchased Buick and, a month
and a half later, the Olds Corporation, followed by the Oakland Company and the Cadillac
Motor Car Company. All told, the formation of General Motors consolidated 13 car
companies and 10 parts-and-accessories manufacturers.

This appetite for expansion caused Mr. Durant to become financially over-extended, and
he was forced out of GM's management in 1910. Not a man to sit back and retire, Mr.
Durant set out to create another automotive conglomerate. He purchased the Flint
Wagon Works and converted it to automobile production. He started with a car called the



                                              11
Little, but his more notable success came when he teamed up with Louis Chevrolet and
some investment partners to found the Chevrolet Motor Car Company on November 3,
1911.

The combination of Durant and Chevrolet was not an ideal business match. Louis wanted
to concentrate on high performance cars; while Billy thought the real money was in high
volume products. In 1915, Louis sold Billy his shares in Chevrolet Motor Car Company
and went back to race car driving.

Durant's instincts were correct, because Chevrolet became so successful that Durant
was able to buy enough shares in GM to regain control again, with the aid of loans from
the duPont interests. By 1916, Durant was again President of GM. His presidency was
nothing if not dynamic. He caused GM to buy Chevrolet, as well as Fisher Body and
Frigidaire. He esatablished GMAC to provide financing for car buyers, and hired future
GM CEO Alfred P. Sloan, who shared his belief in a varied model line-up with a car for
every income level. But as GM grew, it became a challenge for Mr. Durant's management
skills -- he was a visionary, not a detail man. The company became more reliant on cash
infusions from the duPonts, and in 1920, Durant finally lost control of GM for the second
and last time. Upon his departure, he was succeeded as GM President by Pierre Samuel
duPont III.

Amidst all of these business machinations, these pioneers of industry created one of
America's best selling cars, and the mainstay of GM through much of its long and
profitable history. So, happy birthday, Chevrolet, and good luck with your next 100 years!

Postscript: You may be wondering, after Mr. Durant was forced out of General Motors
again in 1920, what did he do for an encore? Even though he was then almost 60 years
old, he created a new company called Durant Motors, whiich he hoped would reprise
GM's success. Its brands included Star (which competed in price with Fords), the
medium priced Flint, the Durant automobile, and the luxurious Locomobile (a Cadillac
competitor). Durant Motors did well for several years, but lost much of its financing in the
Wall Street collapse of 1929 and closed down in 1933. After this final automotive venture,
Mr. Durant purchased a bowling alley in Flint, which went bankrupt in less than a year. He
suffered a debilitating stroke in 1942, and died in 1947, at age 85.

And what of Louis Chevrolet, whose name was destined to become world-famous? He
went back to the racing car industry, creating a state of the art race caer called the
Cornelian, which placed 20th in the 1915 Indy 500 race. In 1916, he and younger
brothers Gaston and Arthur Chevrolet started Frontenac Motor Corporation, designing
and producing a line of racing cars. (His agreement with Durant prohibited him friom
using the name "Chevrolet" for his new company.) Frontenac's products became well
known for, among other things, the "Fronty-Ford" race cars. ("Fronty" was the
abbreviation for Frontenac, the Chevrolet brothers' firm.) Louis also drove in the Indy 500
four times, with a best finish of seventh place in 1919.




                                             12
The same economic depression that devastated Durant was equally unkind to Louis
Chevrolet. He lost his previous earnings and his race-driver winnings in the stock market
crash of 1929. Without income, he went to work as a line mechanic in a Chevrolet factory.
He died nearly penniless on June 6, 1941 in Detroit, at age 62.

of which vary in reporting the exact year in which a particular event took place.]

EDITOR'S NOTES AND REFLECTIONS

A good automotive trivia question is, in what year did a Chevrolet first become available
with a V-8 engine?

If you answered 1955, you're off by 38 years. The correct answer is 1917. Chevrolet
produced Series D automobiles with a V-8 engine in 1917 and 1918.

There is a wonderful original unrestored example of a 1918 Chevrolet V-8 now on display
at the America On Wheels Museum in Allentown, as part of its Chevrolet Centennial
Exhibit. Your editor recommends a visit to this museum -- it's well worth the trip. You can
have a snack or a milkshake at the Hubcap Café on the Museum's upper level. Aniother
must-see attraction at America On Wheels is a 1948 Tucker, on loan from the Swigart
Museum.

Also, this is another reminder to reserve your hotel room and register early for the CLC
Grand National Meet in St. Augustine, Florida, which wil be held on June 13-16, 2012.

Last but not least, please renew your membership in the Central Penn Region. The 2012
membership application form is attached. Remember, you need to have a current
membership in the national CLC in order to belong to our Region.

Saturday April 21, 2012 - Mason-Dixon Chapter Members are invited to join
the Central Penn Region CLC for a Driving Tour to Yuengling Brewery and
Jerry's Car Museum, Pottsville, PA. We will meet for breakfast at a place to be
determined, possibly the Midway Diner near Bethel, PA. Then we will proceed to
Pottsville (Schuylkill County). We have scheduled a guided tour of the Yuengling
Brewery beginning at 10 a.m. sharp. The tour lasts about one-and-a-half hours.
After that, we will have lunch nearby, followed by a guided tour of Jerry's Car
Museum at 1 p.m. The museum is only about three blocks from the brewery.

Yuengling's Brewery is America's oldest brewery. The business was established in
1829 and is still operated by the Yuengling family. The tour is extremely interesting.
(It involves a good bit of walking and going up and down stairs, but there are samples
at the end!)

Jerry's Classic Cars and Collectibles Museum is just three blocks from the brewery.
Over 20,000 collectible items of interest that will stir fond memories are on display.
There are many other interesting things on display besides cars. This museum has a
lot of items that will remind us of the way our homes looked "back in the day", as well
as local and regional advertisements and other memorabilia.

Bryan DePouli is arranging this meet, and he describes it as follows:

The Carolina Chapter of the Buick Club of America is pleased to invite you to the
2012 BCA 500!! We have a wonderful event week planned for you here in Concord,
NC, suburb of Charlotte, NC. Let us take a moment to explain our theme, "The BCA
500". Since this is NASCAR country and we intend to have AT LEAST 500 Buicks of
every year and model, from the earliest pre-teen cars up to recent Buicks, the name
BCA 500 seemed to fit well. Our show will feature all types of Buicks; authentically
restored, modified, unrestored original, professional and specialty, Buick race cars
and ones driven to the meet from all over the U.S.A. and Canada.

Our showfield will be on the grounds of the Charlotte Motor Speedway or the Zmax Dragway. An
exact location will be determined soon. The car show and judging will take place on Saturday June
30, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. We will also have a large Buick only indoor/outdoor swap meet at the
host hotel from Wednesday through Saturday, June 27-30th, 2012. Leading up to the car show we
have many activities planned and for more information. For more information, please see
