The meeting was called to order by President Mike Reid at 7:30 p.m. at the Northgate Lions Club Senior Citizens Recrea- tion Centre, 7524 - 139 Avenue, Edmonton. There were 58 members signed in, with two guest speakers present. 2. Mike Reid updated members on plans for the fall bus tour, which will now only go to the Vancouver area. Mike outlined the itinerary from September 30th to October 4th, 2010. Bro- chures and a sign-up sheet were available; a good level of interest was shown. 3. Ernie Korchinsky spoke briefly about the vehicle inspections planned for May 8th. He noted that a minimum of ten vehicles would be required to make this initiative viable. viewing to gather the material for the 40 second TV clip, but no 4.

Plans were set up to allow the vehicles to travel in the right hand exit lane and swing out at 106 Ave then circle around at Forest Heights Park before the final turn to the A&W at the corner of 101 Ave & 75 St. However it was noted that some brave souls chose to work their way via ―armstrong‖ steering across the lanes and up to the left turn at 101ave. Nev- ertheless, as far as we know, all arrived safely at the Dub for refreshments. Although the store is small we had alerted the management to the fact that they may get invaded around 3:00 pm, so they were well prepared and anxious to serve with a friendly attitude. It also seemed like they had cleared out the parking lot as well, or maybe it was just a slow afternoon. We were just nicely settled in with our coffees and root beers when our interest was drawn to two city police cars sweeping around the building and doing a lockdown on the front and back of the drive through lane. This was quickly fol- lowed by more recruits and a take down beside the order win- dow complete with taser gun for the uncooperative young driver.

Last month I mentioned that I was ready to try my hand at upholstery. I had done the upholstery on my 1930 Essex four years ago. However, my daughter-in-law Shanna sewed the seat covers and Joyce sewed the windlace. I figured asking them to do another car would be pushing the limits. Besides, I figured, how hard can it be to run a sewing machine. I was hoping to find an industrial sewing machine to use. Ru- mour had it that the club at one time owned such a machine however my efforts to track this beast down came to nought. Not wanting to find myself guilty of ruining Joyce‘s sewing machine I dug out an old Omega stored in the basement, fitted it with a big needle and For the seat covers I decided I wanted 4 inch ribbing coming upholstery thread and with some pointers from Joyce and some prac- down the front of the seat. To make these I cut out a length of tice runs, taught myself to sew. This machine performed admirably vinyl and covered it with a piece of muslin. I stapled all around sewing through five layers of vinyl. to hold them together. I then drew lines across at equal intervals Since this is an open car, the upholstery has to be somewhat wa- using a strip of masonite the right width. I then sewed along terproof. The better cars used leather. The cheaper cars like Chevy‘s each line. (This is a practice piece in the picture.) used something similar to vinyl. I decided on vinyl and headed down to Marshals Discount Fabric to purchase a good quality vinyl, some muslin for backing , and some burlap to cover the springs. I also found some soft 1/2 inch soft foam at Fabricland, some one inch felt at Vic‘s Upholstery, and some carpet underlay at Home Depot. I did some basic research, checking out the library, looking through my collection of 1926 Chevy pictures, and checking the Internet. I found a very helpful site at http://www.stanleymotor- carriage.com/735restoration/Interior/InteriorRestorationMain.htm, where the author documents in great detail his restoration of a Stanley Steamer. I decided to use his methods of making seat covers except not having access to horsehair I decided to substitute strips of shaped foam. The material is then folded over on the seam and stitched again. This makes a series of pockets to form the ribs. I used small clamps to hold the rolled up material together. The first step in making seats is fixing the seat springs. I had to do quite a lot of work rearranging the springs to get the right shape. I mounted the lower springs on wooden bases to staple into. I covered the completed springs with burlap. I wanted a lot of padding between the springs and my derriere so I covered this with two layers of car- pet underlay and a layer of one inch felt. 8 To fill the pockets and make the ribs I bonded a layer of carpet the seat covers. A layer of foam underneath glued onto a maso- underlay and soft foam. I cut this into strips on my table saw nite backing board gives lots of padding and side support. and rounded the top edges on my router table with a 3/4 inch round over bit. I inserted these strips into the pockets using shop vac tubes to ―inject‖ them into the pockets. The end ones were difficult to insert because of the sides of the seat covers. The doors are upholstered with panels covered with vinyl. I used masonite for a backing and used contact cement to glue the vinyl to the masonite. These panels are attached to the door frame with black upholstery tacks. The front doors needed pockets to store registration, maps etc. These were a challenge to sew. I sewed on flaps to keep the weather out. With the upholstery finished I still need to do some more body work and painting on the rear fenders and the hood. Then I will have to figure out how to sew a top. Anyone have any pointers? More Easter Parade Pictures Photos by Chris Bamford The seat covers were stapled to the seat spring assemblies using an electric stapler. The staples are hidden with ―hidem‖ strips which I also sewed. The seats are very comfortable with good lower back support. Don‘t you love my green seat belts?

In 1963, Dave parted with the A Sedan It's time for everyone to wash the winter dust off the old car. when he acquired the 1931 Vicky in pieces and cardboard boxes from Lorne Reesor, who had also been a charter member of EACC.
