Hello everyone, Ok, if you haven’t noticed, we are honoring father - son rides this month. It touches my heart to see a father and son sitting together at a show or cruise. In today’s times family togetherness is a little rare. It’s nice to see that our rides can bring togetherness. I was recently chatting with a live long car enthusiast that told me of how his son still has a car that they put together before he had a drivers lisence and that his grandson at (if I remember correctly) age 11 now has a car. That explains how the love of the ride gets in your blood. Last month we honored our mother’s this month take the time for “Good Ol’ Dad”. I’d like to share a father story of my own. My first drive.... My dad liked his ride, but he loved me more...Thank God! My dad was more of a fisherman than a car lover but this was ride he was proud of....I was all of 13 when I first drove. I had jokingly asked my dad if I could drive his truck. It was a Sassygrass Green Step Side pickup I believe around a 1970 with a multi colored decal or painted section on the sides. It wasn’t as common to see special effects on a ride in our hometown as it is around here (Indiana countryside). I will never forget that day behind the wheel. Dad pulled over on a country road not far from home and said here ya go! I hopped behind the wheel as fast as I could; before he changed his mind, and off I went! Having just watched, closely, I thought, on the road I went. When it came time to make a right hand turn...well let’s just say....i didn’t watch close enough... I turned; without putting my foot on the brake; I only let up on the gas....We ended up in a nieghbor’s corn field! I quickly learned where the brakes were, hit them as fast and hard as I could, put it in park and said, “you can drive now daddy.” He replied very calmly, “No, you get us back on the road and take us home,” and I did. To this day, when I see the step side trucks out there, I take have to chuckle about that day with my daddy. I am sure many of you have memories like that with your dad’s... cherish them, remind your dad’s of them and how much they mean to you. I love and miss you dad!

Terry (Son) Courtway’s 1963 Ford Galaxie 500

Terry is the pround owner of the 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500. Sporting a 390 and a 4 speed straight from the factory, this ride is complete stock, from its white exterior to the vinyl white interior. I asked Terry how he came across such a great ride. In 1998 Terry’s father-in-law bought the vehicle. After owning it for 11 years he decided to sell it, Terry jumped at the opportunity. He knows he got a great deal from his father-in-law Scott Lehman, and he is very apprieciative. American Motorhead Magazine

Rob (Dad) Courtway’s 1978 Mustang Cobra II

Rob brought out his 1978 Mustang Cobra II, to show us. This beautiful all stock car only 40,000 miles on this 302 powerhouse. With a striking white exterior, red interior and red cobra lettering down the side which sets off this rare Mustang. Rob says he has another Cobra just like this one, a project car. Right now Rob and his wife Karen enjoy cruising with the Cobral II. Thanks for sharing your father/son love of cars with Motorhead! www.gomotorhead.com

Bradley University Engineering Department held their 2nd Annual Car Show in May. I remember last year’s event, the music and atmosphere were very good. However, this year the number of cars doubled, motorcycles joined in the fun. The event had to move to a larger parking lot at Bradley to acomodate,which is fantastic! Each year the engineering department gives away trophies for each class. If you haven’t had the oppurtunity to attend this event plan on attending next year, it is one of a kind! Nice Job! Thanks for Inviting Motorhead! 6 www.gomotorhead.com

Tom (Dad) Heerde’s 1957 Chevy Belair

Chuck (Son) Heerde’s 1958 Chevy Yellmen

When you see Tom at a cruise in or show, you can almost bet right next to him is his son Chuck. Although they have different tastes in Chevy’s, they both share the love of the hobby.

Tom’s ride is a 1957 Chevy Belair. It is Turquoise Blue in color with a 350 V-8 and 700R 4 overdive transmission. He has added a rock and pinion steering and air with 4 wheel disk brakes to provide wife Karen with a comfortable ride. Chuck’s ride is a rare 1958 Chevy Yellmen Stationwagon. Powered by a 235 6 cylinder with 2 single barrel carburators, a manual trans and stock rear end. This ride is pretty much stock. The front and rear has been lowered, and for the exterior Chuck chose a nice flat black which gives it a Mean Bad Boy look. 8 www.gomotorhead.com

On this brisk day we arrived in Canton, Illinois, to be welcomed by friends we hadn’t seen in a while. The lot was filling up, everyone headed inside for some food and great company. As I walked in the greeted me, all were chatting and having a blast! Midway thru our visit I noticed the parking lot was pretty much full of rides, some we had never seen and some we have. It was a nice cruise in, and the cold weather didn’t dampen the mood at all. Thanks for the invite everyone!

Chuck (Dad) Scott’s 1939 Ford Standard

We had the pleasure of meeting Chuck and Brian on what must have been one of the hottest days this year. The rides were shined up and ready to be captured by my camera. In talking with Chuck and Brian you could see how as father and son they share the same passion for restorations. As I took photos people randomly came up to get a closer look at these beauties. One such person decided to step right up to the cars, rest their arm on the top with the door open as if they owned them. It was kinda funny, we all just stood there waiting for them to complete their photo shoot before continuing our own. Chuck’s 1939 Ford Standard was found 6 years ago, and he knew he had a project car. Starting from the ground up he put in many hours. He picked a Chevy 350 engine and a 350 turbo trany, chevy rear end. When it came to an exterior color he chose Passionate Purple and A-1 Uphostery topped off the interior. Chucks car is a perfect example of the talent you guys have out there. 14 www.gomotorhead.com

Brian (Son) Scott’s 1946 Chevy

Brian was looking for a project car (runs in the family) For a whopping $350 he found this 1946 Chevy. Everyone told him he was crazy (too much work). But Brian knew as soon as he saw it that he wanted it. First came removing the old floor, side panels, and firewall. Then came installing new floors side panels and fire wall, cut measure and weld. Then came deciding what motor. That was easy, a Chevy 350 and 350 trany with a Chevy rear end (just like his dad’s).

After lots of body work it came time to pick the paint. Brian chose Hot Rod Flat Black, with the chrome on the sides, chrome spotlights mounted up front and chrome reverse wheels and Baby Moons gives his ride an old school bad, mean look. Then the interior, Brian tackles it with no fear. Installing two front seats from a Grand Am. Turning to the back seat, he takes a seat from a 47 Chevy removing the outside material, cut shapes and bends wires together. After making sure the back seat fit Brian picked a Gray and Black material to uphoster the interior. Looking at this ride you’ll see the time, talent and passion that go into these rides. Nice job guys! Thanks for sharing! American Motorhead Magazine

This was a swelterly hot day, but the rides were as cool as could be. We drove up right in the middle of it all. Chuck with Central Illinois Cruisers greeted us and set us up in the shade. We enjoyed hotdogs, cookies and cold lemonade, along with the sounds of music in the air. Even though it was a hot day the turnout was fabulous! I heard the residents were the judges, what a tough job! As you can see everyone stayed under the shade of trees enjoying the sights and sounds.

The weather this month has been something... one cruise it was sweltering hot and here at Hooters... cold enough for a sweatshirt and jacket. But we are such devoted cruisers nothing seems to stop us! It always thrills me to see the clubs come together in one spot. I recognized six different clubs, I am sure there were more ( was running through, unfortunately I only had the sweatshirt). Thank you Hooters for another wonderful cruise in!

I heard there were more people than cars (must have been some car pooling). But from the photos the rides that were present, WOW! The diversity amazes me...and I am sure the food was great! American Motorhead Magazine


Roger Moore has had this 1966 Mustang for the last 34 years. There were only 534 of this model manufactured. Sporting a Viper Red exterior and Black interior. Under the hood sets a 302 motor with 351 heads, a 4 Speed T 10 transmission and a 9� rear end finish up the drive train. Several years ago Roger had just finished a coplete referb of his ride and had taken it for a ride. he got all the way home when turning the corner and the right front wheel fell of causing extensive damage. After more repairs it’s now crusing just fine. Thanks for sharing Roger! American Motorhead Magazine

Tips and Tricks to a Happy Summer of Cruising I ran a little late this month with the Nuts N Bolts article so I thought I would throw together a little list of the things my Dad has pounded into my thick bony skull over the years. He always said that if you bought your own car, you would take better care of it. I hate to say it, but he was wrong. I bought my first car a 1967 Mustang with a 289 V8 and it always left every stoplight like I was launching a 3000hp drag car. I did keep up on the cleaning and maintained it on the weekends. She was a great car and was sold when I enlisted in the Marines. I have used these tips for years since and will continue to do so for many more. I hope that some of you will find something new in them and will get some use out of these tips. Rubbing alcohol on your windshield wipers makes badly streaking wipers change to near perfect silence and clarity, it makes them "squeak proof" You ever wonder what happens to your socks when they go into the washing machine as a matched pair and come out of the dryer missing a matched sock? Well here is a helpful hint on what to do with that lonely leftover unmatched sock. When filling the gas tank on my vehicle I seem to always get the smell of gas on my hands. For years I carried a pair of gloves to wear just for this and slipped them in a plastic bag in between fill ups, now and then I would take them in and wash them. Plastic disposable gloves would be great but you have to buy them. So I now keep those lonely unmatched socks in a bag under the seat in my vehicle, if they get the smell on them I just toss them. For there is always one more waiting to take it's place. Besides they aren't lonely in the sack anymore! Many times, I have been on the side of the road without a screwdriver, or the one I had one was too small. Now I carry a pliers, and some change: a quarter, dime, and nickel. Many small screws on a car like the idler screw can be turned with a dime, and the next bigger ones with a nickel. The larger ones can be turned with a quarter. However, you need the pliers for torque; so don't forget that part of this tip.

down and carefully pull over to the right shoulder, making sure to use your turn signal. If you are uncomfortable stopping in a relatively unpopulated or unlighted area, slow down, turn on your hazard lights and indicate by a hand signal that you are going up ahead. Then pull over as soon as you get to a more populated area. Police officers understand this concern. If it's nighttime, turn on your dome light once you have stopped. Stay in the car, unless you are told to get out. It's a challenge to the officer when you get out since officers are very cautious because of the high rate of attacks in these situations. Roll down the window and keep your hands in view on the steering wheel. If you have to get your driver's license, registration or insurance card from the glove box, a purse or other enclosed area, tell the officer before you do it. The key is to play it cool and keep it safe. The easier and safer you make the process for the officer to approach you the more likely the officer will let you go just with a warning and not assign you a speeding ticket. Now what to say to the police officer? Of course the process of keeping it safe for the officer is only half of the game. Next you have to persuade officer to let you go with a warning. The first thing the police officer will ask you after stopping your car will probably be whether you know why you have been stopped. Police officer will want you to admit that you were speeding and that is what most drivers do - they admit that they did actually speed and they receive a speeding ticket for it. A speeding ticket not only costs them $150 but you are also dealing with your insurance premiums.

f your windscreen wiper fails during light or heavy rain, try this: If you can obtain a potato, cut it in half and rub over windscreen. Rain will run off just leaving small globules, making visibility good for driving

Most people get pretty nervous when they got stopped by an officer. The secret is to stay calm, speak to the officer in respectable tone and politely ask whether the officer can let you go with a warning.

If you have those big rearview mirrors on your car or truck and you know an ice storm is coming, here's a cheap trick to keep them clean. Take two plastic grocery bags (one for each mirror) and two rubber bands and put the bags around the mirrors and secure them with the rubber band. It does not look great but it sure helps in the morning when it comes to cleaning the ice off the car or truck cause those mirrors are free and clear of ice!

The first question the officer will probably ask is whether you know why you have been stopped. You basically have 3 things to say:

Learn the tips on how to act when stopped by a police officer and what to say to increase your chances of getting away with a warning and not being ticketed. If you want to save yourself from the worries and expenses of dealing with a speeding ticket then after reading this article you'll know what to do when stopped by an officer.

The bad side is that if you get assigned a ticket and you had admitted that you were indeed speeding then it will be used against you at court. Officers usually take notes on what you say. So if you feel that you will get assigned a speeding ticket then you really shouldn't directly admit that you were speeding.

If a police patrol car pulls up behind you with lights flashing, the key to the next few minutes is keeping things safe for you and the police officer. Slow

1) Admit that you were speeding. The good side is that you are being honest and the officer appreciates it. You may have a chance that the officer will let you go with a warning.

American Motorhead Magazine


2) Deny that you were speeding. This approach usually creates tension between you and the police officer. If you don’t have a reasonable argument to convince the officer that you weren’t speeding then you will get assigned a ticket. The good side for this approach is that you will have more chance to beating your speeding ticket at court, since you didn’t admit that you were speeding. 3) Don’t admit that you were speeding but neither deny it. This approach may actually be the best one. When the officer says that you were stopped for speeding you can say: “Oh, I see” and then you can, in a respectful voice, give an excuse to an officer that you didn’t notice your speed bar or was too tired after work or any other excuse that doesn’t sound right downright lies. Remove auto grease from hands with baking soda and water. If battery terminals are heavily corroded the the quickest way to clean them is to pour a Coke over them. It will eat the corrosion away. Baking soda mixed with water will also do the trick. Steel wool pads with soap cleans white sidewalls the best. When white walls are clean use a little vinyl top wax to keep them clean longer. Brake dust contains all sorts of nasty stuff. If you leave it too long, the combination of road grime, moisture and heat from your brakes will bake it on to your wheels. Brake dust normally clings to wheels with static electricity so a damp sponge and clean cold water is the best way to get it off. Check your tire pressures regularly - once a week is ideal. Bad tire pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort. It's easy to do and there is no excuse not to. If you happen to see a gasoline tanker filling the tanks at your local gas station, come back another day or go to a different station. As the station's underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment. Sediment in your gas can clog fuel filters and fuel injectors, causing poor performance and possibly necessitating repairs. Does your car key share a chain with a dozen or more other keys? That's a

American Motorhead Magazine

pretty heavy load hanging off the car key when it's in the ignition.The weight, combined with bouncing while you drive, can wear out the tumblers inside the ignition and eventually lead to ignition switch failure.To add years of service to your ignition switch, purchase a lightweight key chain that allows you to separate your ignition key from the others. Drive with only the ignition key in your ignition. If your ignition key "sticks" when you try to turn on the car, it's a warning that your ignition switch is about to fail. Replace it before you get stranded. Wipe a rubber protectant (such as Armor-All) or silicone on door and window weatherstripping to keep it in good condition. Don't use an oilbased product, such as WD-40, because the oil will damage the rubber. Regular cleaning and treatment of your car's weatherstripping will also lessen the likelihood of your door sticking to its rubber seal in cold weather, a common cause of damage to the rubber. If you top off your tires at a service station, check to see if there's moisture coming from the air pump. Simply depress the pin inside the inflator valve with your thumbnail. If your thumb gets wet, advise the station manager that his tanks need to be drained and go to a different station. Moisture, trapped inside a tire, can cause pressure variations and corrode rims. Check the hoses under your hood every month or two to avoid the hassle of a broken hose while you're on the road. With the car cool and off, squeeze the hoses. If they are hard or make a crunching sound, replace them. Ditto if they are extremely soft or sticky.With the car warm but off, examine hoses for bulges and collapsed sections. If you find any, the hose walls are weak, and it's time to replace the hose. Never drive with a ruptured coolant hose, or you are liable to overheat the engine and damage it. Other hoses are crucial to operation of your power brakes and cruise-control systems. I am sure that there are hundreds of tips and tricks out there that havent been told. if you would like to add to these, just email me your tips and tricks and in a few months we will publish another tips and tricks article with your suggestions in print.
