Another month has become history. Do you have anything worthy to record? Start a project? Finish a project? Add to your bucket list? Well - let our editor know! While it is nice to have articles to reprint, nothing beats hearing about one of our own. And while I am beating the drum - yes I have still not written the story of my first car which by the way, was a 1953 Chevy. So please take a few moments and put pen to paper! If you are worried about spelling and structure, don't, we will review and publish accordingly.
So while some of us went to Ian's last month, a few members went to Peotone for a flee market. How about a report? Find any treasures? See anything that may be of interest to other members. This month a garage tour fell thru but was replaced by a run to Starved Rock. Am looking forward to a report as I had family commitments so I could not join in.
With "non-driving" months ahead of us, the subject of storage looms. Sometimes new or additional parking space is needed. Know of a spot - please share in our newsletter to help a member. Now comes the big debate over fuel. Keep the tank empty or fill it up with treated fuel. It is your car - you decide. One thing not to overlook is storing the car with fresh oil. Because many of us do not take long runs, fuel and moisture can become trapped in the oil resulting in an acidic mixture. A winter of storage with old oil makes for heaven for the mechanic and hell for the owner.
Have you signed up for our Christmas party? Remember 12-1-13 is the cut off date so we have a count to order food. If we were at a restaurant, members just showing up would not be a big deal for food. Last year the "unreserved" caused a big mess and crowding. This year we have a much larger space - please sign up per the information in our newsletter. Last month a time was not shown. Social hour starts at 5 PM and the food will be available between 6 & 6:30. Check with Pat Harvey if you have any questions.
Suggestions are welcome to enhance our meetings. Guest speakers pertinent to the car hobby are welcome. Have a contact? Pass the information to one of the directors to work out details for scheduling in one of our 2014 meetings. Happy Motoring!
