The National Cadillac LaSalle Club had their Winter Board Member this Past Saturday, Feb 27, via zoom and as an elected board member I always attend ... usually in person, but because of COVID we have used Zoom for the last couple of board meetings. For this meeting, I was treated with a visit by CLC Chapters VP Bob Crimmins & CLC SW Regions VP, Self-Starter Art Director Tim Coy and his girlfriend and CLC Grand National Registrar Cynthia Rutledge. Tim had seen my office upstairs via our Chapter Zoom meet-ups and had suggested we all "Zoom" the Winter Board Meeting from my office since they would be traveling through NC during the WBM. I said, of course!
While I have met and hung out with my friends Tim, Cynthia and Bob several times at Grand Nationals, it was an honor to have our VP of Chapters sit in my Captain's Chair for the board meeting, and share the office with Tim and Cynthia for our national meeting. After the meeting Cynthia headed to the house to hang out with my wife Cheryl, but Bob and Tim headed downstairs to check out all my parts buildings, and of course a shirtless Dino in the garage. As is customary, anyone that comes to the garage for the first time gets to gets to press the "special button". The 2nd picture below was just after "the button" was pressed. If you want to find out what the button does .... well, you just have to come and visit!

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
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! …
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!
