Tony, you are just missing out on so many benefits of not being a CLC and Chapter Member. As always, I encourage you to join the club... and be an active member. Here is a reminder of some of the benefits of membership:

 Below is a list of benefits when you join the CLC (Cadillac & LaSalle Club) NOTE: You must be a member of the CLC in order to join the 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter!

CLC MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

  • The Award-Winning Magazine: This award-winning "The Self-Starter" is filled with interesting articles submitted by members, mechanical tips and advice; cars, parts, and literature for sale/wanted; regional projects; historical accounts; member car features and Cadillac-factory updates.
     
  • National Events and Tours: Grand National Meets and Driving Tours are held annually in different locations and include social events, judging, seminars, tours, swap meets, and an awards banquet.

The main Club site opens a vista of historical and current information and is where you'll find all of the latest news about the Club.

Thank you so much for the thought
I am just not ready to make that move myself at this point in time

Enjoy

Well... you can have your Cadillac Fun vicariously through me, especially when I land in Texas in June and hang out with  hundreds of other Cadillac Enthusiasts in a sea of spectacular Cadillacs and LaSalles, or go to the dozen plus meet-ups this year with our Carolina CLC Region members.  For the rest of you that like to share that comradery and see the cars in person, come join the  fun!  I'll even leave the front porch light on and the door unlocked.... so come on in! je 

We're going to be chapter members soon.

When I joined on here a while back, the wife was paying my CLC membership, but she joined me up for the Australian one rather than the US one. DOH.

The Aussie one just doesn't do it for me i'm afraid. About as useful as a pergola on a submarine.

Probably get it all sorted in few months when we visit. (See ya soon Boss)

I can see a massive amount of benefits to being a member.

I also have to say it will be a shame that non members will not see the story. It was by far the most ambitious write-up I have ever attempted in terms of covering all aspects of our Chapter. 
Topics in the article include Our Mission, Why Form a Chapter?, Instant Connectivity via the Internet!, An Open and Inclusive Chapter, Our Newsletter, 1963 and 1964 Cadillacs - Refined, Distinctive, Classic!, The Back Story, Chapter Formation, and Chapter Structure.
I should also note that our Chapter is also the first of a series on CLC Chapters to be featured in the Self-Starter!

If the write up is about this web site, why would you not post it for the members to read?

It is not about the website, it is about the Chapter.  Our website, just like our Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, newsletters, merchandise, etc., is just one component of our Chapter. The article is published in the May Cadillac & LaSalle Club Self-Starter and every CLC member will get the opportunity to read in detail about our Chapter Story!  

Just to add, I do believe a website is a critical component to a successful Chapter. In light of the fact that some CLC Chapters do not even have a website, I have even gone so far as to suggest to the CLC board that it should be a requirement for approval for any new Chapter.  Now that I am an elected member of the board, perhaps I will have a louder voice to that end.

Finally, here is one quote from my article I will share which I think sums up my thoughts on Chapters and websites nicely:

"It is paramount that Chapters establish a strong online presence and have a robust, interactive website, where their members can come together and have their "virtual meetups" and share their passion and information. The technology is there… we just have to use it!"

Jason

Why do --i think --you will be running the CLC --soon ?
Your leadership qualities are very obvious once they get to know what you are about especially in the World of Cadillacs and computers
How well we know the power of a an excellent website to help keep our Classic Cadillacs in a fine state of parts advice and repair
A Quality website is so very important for the interaction necessary to make well informed repairs from experienced individuals

You remind me of my father in law
One day on a visit i saw his resume
He was president of every organiztion he was a part of ( about 10-15 )
President of the Red Cross a Colonel in Army intelligence ( a contridiction of terms -HA )
He started a university in the Virgin Island and was a college Dean professor and an educater his whole life
He inherited the largest single block of NY real estate in Bedford Stiversent when his father passed
He graduated college at 13 --as they skipped people then that we a cut above the rest
A policy he was against because of his own experience
He designed the report card they use today
One of the more brilliant people i have had the pleasure knowing and a natural born leader

Enjoy

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted by john kilbourne on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…
