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

Map Light

Posted by RIchard Yasenchack on January 1, 2022 at 8:07pm 7 Comments

I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Can someone post a picture showing what the map light should look like?

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch. Jason finally pulled one in and was more than generous with pricing. Thanks Jason! Installing the vent window motors was the easiest part of the project but many other tasks were spawned by this project.

  1. There is a hole in the door panels where the window crank was. I considered putting a hub cap emblem there…

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
