Just tried the link and calling Hilton reservations and looks like rooms have not been released for booking yet. It's 8:30am and will try again later.

Comment by Mark Nichols on August 8, 2016 at 9:57pm

I called at noon eastern time today and there were only 5 rooms with two double beds left at that time.  The person I talked to said people had been calling all morning trying to get rooms for the event.

Here's my response on the CLC Forum ... enjoy:

- At 8:00am and throughout rest of the day the link has not worked.
- At 8:01am  I called the main Hilton 1-800 # and after about 15 minutes of negotiating my way with a Hilton Rep that obviously did not speak or understand English very well, I was told the entire block was sold out. I assumed they simply had not made the link active and/or made the group booking available to their system.
- I later received emails that rooms were not available, rooms would be available, rooms had been added and rooms were available, rooms were being booked, and all sorts of twisted, convoluted hotel reservation tales.
- So, at 12:32pm I decided to call back, and bare and grin it... and exactly 16 minutes later I had booked the standard $129 room from Sun, July 30 to Sun, Aug 6 and had a confirmation #.

Note, I understand rooms are going fast. Some early days in the week may already be sold out. If you are planning on going to the 2017 Grand National and want to stay at the Host Hotel you need to call and book now.

Seat belt restoration

Posted by Michael Forte on March 6, 2018 at 12:00am 4 Comments

During the process of a complete restoration (and color change) of my ‘63s interior during the winter of 2016, I replaced the aftermarket seatbelts that were in my car with restored original '64 buckles and retractors.  I had a terrific experience with Ssnake-Oyl Products out of Tyler Texas, so I thought I share the info. 

In my opinion, the '64 seat belt buckle with the Cadillac Crest is the coolest looking seat belt buckle ever put in a car.  Apparently, they're not easy to find in…


Drive shaft Question

Posted by Christopher Belinda on February 26, 2018 at 12:45pm 3 Comments

Good Morning - I have read several, very informative posts on this site regarding the 63/64 drive shaft and am looking for a few recommendations.  My Park Avenue is a relatively low mileage car (32,000); however, in an effort to make this a very reliable, long distance traveler I would like to ensure that this vital component has a clean bill of health.  Normally, this would mean replacing all universal joints, greasing the slip yoke, and replacing the carrier bearing/mount.  As you have…


Air Suspension - How to Choose and Install

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 10:00pm 15 Comments

What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style.  For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low.  This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.

I purchased my car in August of…
