2020 Grand National Cancellation

Dear CLC Members:

Well, the COVID-19 crisis has completely upended our plans. This is the message I did not want to have to send, and you did not want to receive.

The Club has reluctantly decided to cancel our 2020 Grand National meet we planned to hold in Kansas City in June.

Given all of the issues and uncertainty surrounding the impact of the COVID-19 virus, and the demographics of our Club, we felt we had no choice. The local county where the meet was to be held, had already cancelled all events exceeding 10 people currently ending only two weeks before our event. The State of Kansas has cancelled school until the end of August. It wasn't looking good for our being able to proceed as planned. We were already receiving requests to cancel registrations, and the number was beginning to grow. As of today, I understand some of you are in areas that are currently minimally impacted by the virus crisis. However, many of us are, and some are in areas that are unfortunately, severely impacted now; and, your situation may change between now and June 9th.

Given the Club's potential liability under the event contracts, the potential for member disillusionment by our holding a less than stellar, poorly attended event, and the most important, the potential health risk to our members, I determined cancellation was warranted.

This is not what we planned, and not what we wanted to do. But, it is a necessity given the world we currently live in. Hopefully, this pandemic will subside soon and we can all safely get back to our lives, and automotive pursuits.

We’ll be back next July in Albuquerque. It’s going to be a great event, hope to see you there.

Until then, stay safe.

Glenn Brown
CLC President


HOW DO YOU GET YOUR MONEY BACK?

Event Registration Refunds:

First, and most important, DO NOT CALL THE REGISTRAR about refunds!

The 2020 Kansas City Grand National registration refund process will begin very soon. We will verify member information and audit the registration to assure the accuracy of the amount of the refund due to you.

For those of you who charged your registration, we will issue credits to the original card used to secure your registration. You should see a credit appear on your card’s statement per your bank’s policies. If your card is unable to accept a credit transaction, or if it is rejected by your banking institution, a check will then be sent to you by mail.

If you paid by check, you will receive a refund check by mail.

If you paid by card and by check because of an automobile registration, you will receive both types of refunds. Our goal is to return everyone’s registration fees as soon as we are able.

Please allow us time to complete this process in a timely manner. We estimate everyone should have received their refund by April 15th. It is our hope to be concluded before that date, and we will do our best to accomplish that task.


HOTEL RESERVATION CANCELLATION
AND DEPOSIT REFUNDS

The hotel has decided that each reservation be cancelled individually. This can be done by telephone to the hotel-913-451-8000. Or, you should be able to do so, through the Marriott website www.Marriott.com or their reservation number 800-228-9290

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
