Event Description

Note that the Albuquerque, NM Grand National has been postponed to June 2023. See note from CLC President Glenn Brown below:

This is the letter I didn’t want to have to write. The Board of Directors has decided it is best to reschedule the Albuquerque Grand National until a later date. I had hoped that we would be able to hold this year’s Grand National in Albuquerque with a few modest alterations. However, despite vaccination opportunities improving, and an optimistic outlook for moving past this pandemic, COVID continues to upend our plans.

While significant progress is being made in addressing the pandemic’s health impacts, they aren’t gone. COVID related restrictions remain in place in many parts of the country, including Albuquerque. We had anticipated that some level of social distancing might remain in place. But current restrictions and those likely to be in place for our dates, would adversely impact most of our activities, tours and tour venues. We anticipated we would not be able to have our usual buffets, banquets, bar service, or hospitality suite. We had additional concerns about having enough experienced judges to judge the cars. Secondarily, we felt that we couldhave difficulty being able to meet our significant financial obligations to the host hotel as well. At the time our decision was made, we could not assure that we could hold an event of the caliber you have come to expect fromyour Club.

Therefore rather than hold a severely diminished event, the Board decided to postpone the Albuquerque Grand National to June of 2023. I know this is very disappointing to our host Region members, who worked diligently to hold this event in the face of this pandemic. It is also disappointing forthose who made plans to attend, especially those of you who felt we should have held the GN last year.

After having cancelled last year’s Grand National, we were doing all we couldto try to hold this year’s event as planned.  Unfortunately, the situation has simply not improved enough to enable us to safely do so. Therefore in the best interest of the Club and the health of our fellow members, we believe this is the correct decision.

In the interim, the outlook is very good to have all these concerns behind us for our Grand National in Chicago (Lombard, Illinois) June 21-25, 2022, and a rescheduled Albuquerque Grand National June 20-24, 2023. They are both going to be great events. I hope to see you there.

We are working on possibly holding a more casual Cadillac-Lasalle Club gathering in the Southeast in October. I’ll keep you posted as planning for that event evolves.

Until then, stay safe.

Glenn

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
