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.

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
