Congratulations Howard on another win with your Chrysler. For those reading this the Classic Car Club of America is devoted to the preservation, restoration and use of luxury cars , both domestic and European built between 1915 and 1948. You do not have to own a car to belong to CCCA and you get 4 color magazines plus 8 b & w Bulletins all printed on coated paper stock, plus a roster of members and their cars which is the size of a phone book. Dues are $70 per year (that comes out to a fraction less then $6 per month ) If you see me at an event I can give you a sample of the publication and can send you an application to join if you want. I have belonged to the CCCA since 1972, and if you like “old” primarily pre WWII cars this is the club for you.

I was an active charter member of the CCCA and only dropped out when exhibitors started trailering their cars to meets and with crews of paid detailers.  That rare ‘42 Caddy coupĂ© sure looks like a stock factory jobbie and, if so, is really pushing the definition of a true Classic.  Sam (pur sang), III
