Kinda crazy that I will be in Texas 1 week from now watching the Cadillacs & LaSalles roll in as part of the 2018 CLC Grand National. I missed out last year and have definitely had GN withdrawal over the past year, and chomping at the bit to get my GN Groove On again!  There is nothing like hanging out with hundreds of other fellow Cadillac enthusiasts with a show field filled with classic cars.  These people become like family and have to say being a part of the CLC Family and participating in these Grand Nationals, and meeting our fellow 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter members in person, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  

With that said, I am starting to get in the ramp down mode on the many house projects, while ramping up on my preparation for the Grand National.  The hardest thing for me, probably like most of you, is packing.  What clothes to take? ... it is supposed to be 103 the day we arrive the last time I checked; what electronics do I take? ... make sure I have chargers, adaptors, plugs, cords cables; can I take any Chapter stuff for our meet-up? ... I like to take at least a few unique items; what reading material to I bring? ... I always go way over board and bring books and magazine I barely have time to glance at the cover.

For our Chapter Meet-up I would love to bring a car load of stuff and make it really fun, but we are flying and will have to improvise! As far as reading material this will be the first time I have judged under the new judging procedures and, yes, I have had my head in the 2018 Judging Manual just about everyday this week.  

So, I think I will just relax and just go have some great fun in Texas!!!!!
Jason.

Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

Posted by Norman Silverman on December 15, 2018 at 9:07pm 3 Comments

My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. 

Survey says?

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.

After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner. Mind you I just got the car and wanted to at least shift from the column without having to shift for the engine bay. Also wanted to get a price on dash lights to work. Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…
