Program - Norm Madsen - Jack Hanbury - Gary Edwards - Paula Link
Bob Love was prepared to give a program on the "Internet and the Car Hobby". Due to unforeseen circumstances, he was not able
to give it. It had to do with the lack of cellular service inside the Museum!
Norm and Jack related their experiences at Hershey this year and Gary told of his visit to the AACA Museum at Hershey earlier this
year. Paula Link told of a doll that was purchased at our Auction last year that subsequently was donated to a Shriner's Hospital
fund raiser. This doll raised a significant amount of money for the Hospital. A Gift that keeps on giving!


Next Meeting & Location
The meeting will be held on November 12, 2006 at the Densmore's.

month , but in 1954, his infectious enthusiasm got me hooked and I’ve never been the same!


    At the tender age of seven, Dad took me to the AACA National meet at the Devon PA Horse Show
grounds (before the show was moved to Hershey PA) and I was treated to the sights and sounds of
antique cars (then the latest antiques were the1929 models!) including many Mercers, Pierce Ar-
rows, Auburns, Cords, Stanley Steamers, Franklins, Stutzs, and even some Indian motorcycles.
Even then, that display of “living history” made a deep and lasting impression on me, mostly because
of Dad’s enthusiasm as he would recount the history, and mechanical distinctions of the engines (such
as sleeve valves, and dual ignition) unique to each of these great automobiles.

                                                                                                                         Two car guys and my sister
                                            Dad was a real car guy, and a great Chrysler/ Plymouth fan, often
                                      extolling the superior engineering of Chrysler products over Ford and GM.
                                      This was not surprising, as he sold Chrysler products in the 20’s and 30’s. I still know the advanced
                                      engineering of those early Chrysler models: full length water jackets, hydraulic brakes, and rifle-
                                      drilled crankshafts with full pressure oiling, to name a few. One of his stories was about showing a
                                      loyal Chevy customer the advantages of hydraulic brakes. He would reach down under the dash
                                      while peeking over the steering wheel (he always acted this out as he told the story!) and push the
                                      brake pedal with his right hand and bring the car to a stop. “Try that with your Chevrolet” he would
                                      say!

Dad admiring an oldie




    Dad got interested in the
    hobby at an early age, here                                                                        Like father, like son!
    he is in the driver’s seat of a
    non-motorized “hot rod”




    Many of his stories centered on his “hot rod” which was an early Model T. This vehicle had served triple duty: a delivery
truck for his father’s general store, a family car, and finally, after much modification, a boat-tail racer. He lowered the chasse
about an inch off the ground by inverting the springs, his custom exhaust consisted of a rain spout which was a straight “pipe”
with no mufflers, and he modified the engine with some high compression heads and other goodies. Top speed on this creation
was 8o mph in “high” on the two speed planetary transmission. As proof of that, he would travel eight miles to his high school
every day in six minutes flat (no speed limits and little traffic back then) and delighted in putting the racer into a slide on the
short radius gravel road turns of the day, an easy feat (according to him) with the two wheel mechanical brakes!




         Two of Dad’s early ‘loves’ and old girlfriend and his Model T Racer
                                                                                         The 40 Chrysler and an old girlfriend, like father, like son.

   Dad was always fascinated with performance, not only with his Model T racer, but even our 1940 Chrysler with its “big
six” (significantly larger displacement and hp than the Dodge and Plymouth sixes) which he claimed would out-accelerate a stock
flat head Ford V8! (I don’t doubt it as I once drove it and got 70 mph in a quarter mile drag race and over 110mph top speed in
my younger days!). Later he had a 1952 Desoto with the Firedome V8 hemispherical head engine. He also had a 1962 Buick
Special which was the first year GM produced a V6. Needless to say, he loved driving my first car, my 1962 Pontiac Catalina with
a 389 V8 and 3 speed manual shift. One of his “just for fun” vehicles was the 1947 Whizzer motorbike that he often took both my
sister and I for rides, with me on the gas tank and her on the rear fender luggage rack! (Don’t think they would allow this today!)


                           Dad on the Whizzer; and like father, like son - me at 16 on the Whizzer




               Dad often spoke of wanting to own a Triumph TR3 when they were popular but he never realized his dream. I
guess he felt it would be too frivolous to spend the money on something so extravagant for him, as he usually saved his money for
things the whole family could enjoy instead. I guess that’s one reason I took the plunge and bought my GTO, and even more, how
I wish I could have helped him to get his Triumph when he was still around to enjoy it!


   My Dad was born in 1905 and saw the transition from horse and buggy to the automobile. His first “vehicle” was a one horse-
power job named “Bessie”. He saw a lot of changes during his 92 years. I know if he was around today he would love to partici-
pate in our tours and club activities as well as driving my GTO and seeing the Whizzer restored. Our hobby is about the love of
cars, but even more, about the people we love. I only hope I can pass on the joy and enthusiasm of our hobby to my children and
grandchildren and many others as just one of many ways to say “Thanks Dad” for everything you did and everything you mean to
me.

                                             AACA Member Profile:
                                         Craig & Belle McCollum
What is your occupation ?
Craig: Retired in 1999. (Electronic Engineer with the Defense
Information Services Agency in Hawaii. I developed an integrated
network management capability which was used for the managing
communications in the Pacific area and eventually worldwide.).
Belle: Retired with husband. (Previously worked at Pearl Harbor
Navy Exchange).
How did you become interested in the antique car hobby ?
Craig: My newspaper friend on the route next to mine told me one
of his customers had old cars so we started going over to check
out the cars. My friend and the son of the customer still have old
car fever today. I see them and their old cars almost every year.
Belle: I married into it.
How did you become members of the TRAACA ?
Craig & Belle: Found out about it at the 2003 Southeastern Na-
tional Fall Meet hosted by TRAACA.
What were your favorite cars when you were growing up ?
Craig: My first was a 1926 Star bought from a paper customer
with paper route earnings. Next was my 1938 Ford bought from
the original owner while I was in the Army Security Agency stationed in Washington DC. Next was my 1931 Durant acquired by
trade of the Ford. I drove that Durant while attending the University of Iowa and to my first job in Hawaii. Come to think of it, I
like anything with a motor.
Belle: Mercedes Benz.
Share a story about one of your cars that is a special memory?
Craig: I've got many stories about every car I owned including Belle's favorite below.
Belle: Driving our unrestored 1967 Camaro convertible from CA to Tallahassee when we moved here in 1999. We shipped the
car from Hawaii and picked it up at the Long Beach port. The first challenge was loading it with our luggage, 4 dogs and 4 cages
required for airline travel. There were port employees waiting to get whatever we couldn't fit into the car. They didn't know that
we practiced this drill in Hawaii before we left (no spare tire, no back seat, etc.). It was March and we froze on a couple mornings
because the air vent didn't close properly and cold air went on our feet rather than into the heater core. Remember we never used
the heater in Hawaii. The dogs didn't mind the cold as they slept the whole 5 day trip. We had to stop often at rest areas for the
dogs. The 2 male dogs had no problem, however, the 2 females didn't know what to do as they are use to doing their business on
grass in Hawaii and there is no grass between CA and tte middle of Texas. We had to make 4 trips each night sneaking a dog into
the motel one at a time. We drove 65 mph and didn't have any mechanical problems until the alternator failed just outside of
Tallahassee.
Is there a dream car you do not currently own that you'd like to have ?
Craig & Belle: Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing.
What do you like best about the antique hobby ?
Craig & Belle: We both like getting together with car people and their cars. The tours are the most fun.
What other hobbies and interests do you participate in ?
Craig: I like anything mechanical/electrical. I like antique telephones and have some of them hooked up between the house and
car barn. I built my first telephone network while in grade school. I raced motorcycles in the 1970's. I built and raced stock cars
winning the 1990 Hawaii Street Stock chanpionship on a quarter mile dirt track. Belle was my pit crew chief. Normally, to make a
small fortune in racing you have to start with a large fortune. We were the only ones to make money at racing in Hawaii mainly
because we won the most races and Belle would sell my winning race cars at top dollar behind my back.
Belle: Antiquing, gardening, quilting, crafts, and animals.

Mr. H.A. Parramore (owner) has enjoyed this yard since the beginning in 1948 when he started out with cars, trucks, buses
and anything else that he could get his hands on and turn a dollar. Mr.Parramore is a tall senior average built that has seen
a lot of happening and will set a spell and talk to you if you have the time to enjoy his company. Yes we did and made a
very enjoyable day of it. The yard is 25 areas and in 1951 he found a way to get military surplus and started the change
the yard over than. He has government surplus of all type trucks, power plants, air compressors, electric motors, parts,
winches, wire rope, new chain hoists, trolleys, vises and some old cars and jeeps.


While we walked the yard which is very easy and very well laid out for moving and finding thing we came across everything
that is listed above and more. In the building we found V8 motors, ammo boxes by the hundreds and anything that a mili-
tary base may need or use. GMC, Chevy, Ford, Mopar SUVs used for inspections and government off road duty. This yard
can be found 10 miles west of Quincy on right side of US 90going northwest and plan on walking a while when you visit.


A Mayflower’s Progress Report
Jack Herzog
"Several issues ago there appeared in the club newsletter an article on my little 1950 Plymouth undergoing paint and body work. Well, as you
can see, she now sports her new color, new rubber, and a new windshield. There is still a lot of work to do such as the headliner and interior,
the sun visor to be painted and mounted, a traffic light prism to be located, bumpers and bumper guards to be installed, and the bumper fillers
to be painted. I would like to have the bumpers and guards re-chromed but that will have to wait for a lucky lotto strike or something.
In 1952 Plymouth came out with an overdrive option which is something I may consider installing in my 1950 Plymouth if I can find one; how-
ever, it may not be needed since the car is high geared.

At any rate, I owe my brother Jim big time for the great paint job."

              Looking Ahead to 2010

              By Joe Gagliano
              Vice President - Membership Development and Youth Programs


Mark your calendar and start planning. 2010 will be an important year for AACA, your region or chapter and you personally; it will
be AACA’s 75th Anniversary! That’s right our Diamond Jubilee.
Plans are now underway at a Naational level and at our Host club, the Kyana Region. The event will be based out of Louisville, Ken-
tucky, from June 27th to July 3rd, 2010, so it will be easily accessible to most of our members.
We’re planning an unusual event with some different activities that should please all members of your family, and be affordable for
everyone. Louisville is a central location with a lot of fun things to do and see.
Planning is still in process, so we can’t provide too much detail at this point, but we wanted to let everyone know about the event
and to get you and your club to start planning as well. We want this to be an old car event and want to encourage everyone to
drive and bring their old cars.
Activities will include antique car tours, a casual “cruise¬in” type event for everyone, a very special “Opus” car display to cap off
the week long event, plus much, much more. In addition to setting aside the date and time, we’d like your club to begin thinking
about creating tours to the event.
Take your maps out, figure out a route and maybe you can plan a trip to the event. Your club or group may even be able to hook
up with other clubs traveling the same route!
Look for additional information in future articles and in our AACA publications.
Remember:                  It’s not the journey that’s important; it’s the people you meet along the way!

                                 rave reviews for some of Belle’s culinary delights. She has graciously provided her recipe’s
                                 for traditional Filipino appetizers….

30 Years Ago:
Our monthly meeting for November was held on November 4, 1976, at Tallahassee Federal Savings & Loan Association,
440 N. Monroe Street. The meeting was hosted by Harold and Violet Cottingham and Ed and Helen Eikman who treated us
to a delicious dinner, and we certainly want to express our appreciation for their generosity. Attendance was good - there
were 40 members present and several guests. We were most happy to see some familiar faces joining us again - Dr. And
Mrs. Randall Kendrick, Jim and Betty Peck and Jesse Burt. Russell Haines, our president, conducted the business meeting.
He requested our treasurer’s report, and Foy Thompson advised our current balance was $617.00 with a few bills to pay.
Russell reported on the Perry Show of which was considered a highly successful one. He expressed appreciation for every-
one doing a fine job. Fred Tyler also expressed THANKS for everyone cooperating so well and getting the job done. Forth-
coming events were discussed: MULE DAY - Calvary, Georgia on Nov. 6th, FSU HOMECOMING PARADE on Nov. 6th, and
Car Shows in New Port Richey and Ormond Beach. Russell advised the Model A Club in Dothan had been in touch with him
and indicated that approximately 10 cars would participate in the proposed get-together with our club in Chattahoochee.
However, our club members indicated that this was not a good time for an outing. Henry Forster was presented a plaque
and letter to express the club’s appreciation for his service as president.
Respectfully submitted,
Carolyn A. Pope, Secretary

10 Years Ago:
Our Annual Club Auction and Chili Supper was held at the Heber’s home in Calvary, Georgia, on Sunday, November 24. A
healthy $500 worth of "junque and treasures" was purchased by 39 members. Once again, Carol Rainey served as auction-
eer sweet-talking members into bidding on almost every item up for sale. How could anybody resist her "gentle persua-
sion." After the auction, members enjoyed bowls full of delicious hot chili, with appetizing side dishes, desserts and all the
trimming’s. Ruth and Larry Barker and Wayne and Rosa Ann Hadden cordially invite you, your family & friends to their
combined collections of antique vehicles GRAND OPENING Saturday, January 25, 1997, 2-5 p.m. 1125 Highway 84 East,
