From Fender Bender to Friendship The journey for new car parts takes our writer on an unexpected adventure By Frank Adkins

I

t had been 22 years since my last accident. Since that time I had driven more than half a million miles and competed in countless on-track events in various disciplines. Sure, I’d had my share of close-calls, but I had not actually wadded up a car in over two decades. And then it happened. I was at my workplace in the automotive technology department at Delaware Technical Community College. There had been a misunderstanding, and my butt was in a sling through no fault of my own. While this was going on, I was moving the ’65 Plymouth Valiant street-driven autocross car, one of the college’s Automotive Technology program project cars, outside to make room for my ’67 Plymouth GTX. The GTX was to be used in the Engine Performance class the following day to demonstrate ignition timing curves (we would be re-curving the distributor) and the Valiant was to be my ride home that night. Preoccupied, frustrated, and angered by the situation that was unfolding, I wheeled the Valiant into an area behind the shop where it would be out of the way, when suddenly, BANG! In my haste, I had run too close to a large yellow pole adjacent to one of the bay doors. The pole was intended to protect the corner of the building, and it did its job well. I sprang from the driver’s seat to assess the damage. The bumper and right fender were both crumpled. The headlight bezel was flattened in one spot and the front valence was kinked along its lower edge. 6

My stomach flopped. Before it could defy me, I walked inside, removed the distributor from the GTX, and prepared it for my return trip home. With the Valiant’s fender now resting against the tire, I wouldn’t be driving it anytime soon. All the while, I felt like a stooge. Really, I had been driving for 35 years. How hard was it to avoid a stationary iron pole? I wasn’t ready to talk about it. I worked feverishly and silently on the GTX distributor. It wasn’t until sometime later that I was ready to confess to the other instructors what I had done. Of course, by then, they had all discovered the damage and the tell-tale marks on the pole. In the days that followed, I began searching for parts to fix the car. I had a spare headlight bezel in my parts stash, and after a little straightening, painting, and polishing I deemed it good enough. I followed one false lead on a fender and several false leads on replacement bumpers. I finally sent my damaged bumper to Tri-City Plating in exchange for one that had been repaired and replated. It was expensive, but the quality was worth it. The fender was another story. It was only used in 1965 on Valiants but it was used in both 1964 and 1965 on Barracudas. On eBay I spotted a fender that I remembered seeing in a listing months earlier. The seller had offered a pair of fenders for sale originally, but now he listed only one. Fortunately, it was the right side—the side I needed. He was located in southern New Jersey. It was an easy drive from my southern Delaware home.


Had my then 7-year-old car-nut grandson been able to go with me, I would have opted to take the Lewes-Cape May Ferry, for I knew he had never ridden the ferry. As it was, I set out alone, heading north to the Delaware Memorial Bridge, and then south to the seller’s home in my daily-driven Neon. With its fold-down rear seat, it often serves as a high MPG truck. The seller, Jim, had provided his address. I pulled up to his house, finding it with no trouble. Immediately my eyes feasted on his gorgeous silver ’65 Barracuda with red stripes and matching red interior. Later he told me he had parked it outside so I’d be sure to know which house was his. My wife and I had owned a ’65 Barracuda Formula S with a 273 Commando and four-speed transmission. It was gold with black stripes and a black interior. Although it was a fun car, it needed to be restored. Five years ago we sold it in order to make room for a ’68 Road Runner. Jim’s car, by contrast, was equipped with a 273 two-barrel (although he had wisely added an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and carburetor) backed by an automatic transmission. He had restored it from top to bottom, and it wore later Rally wheels just as I had installed on our old Barracuda. Jim met me in the driveway as I was taking in the splendor of his car. His mother had purchased it new. He had acquired it from her, eventually sold it, and later bought it back. During its restoration he had purchased a rust-free body from California, which donated its metal to resuscitate his rusty East Coast body. The fender I was about to buy was one of the originals from his car; it had been repaired prior to his acquisition of the California body. Soon we talked as if we had been friends for years. Sometimes car people just seem to hit it off this way. I asked if he had any spare headlight bezels. He had a few, but none was better than the spare I had. He offered me a spare dashboard, which I bought due to mine suffering rust from a mouse infestation during long-term storage prior to my ownership. As we talked, we discovered that we knew some of the same people—not unusual for car folks it seems. He mentioned an acquaintance who lived a short distance away and who also owned a Barracuda. He had parted out another one a few years earlier. Coincidentally, I had purchased the entire floor from this gentleman’s parts Barracuda for the Valiant. I had removed it in one large piece, but I had cut it and sectioned it into the Valiant in two pieces prior to my students performing its mechanical metamorphosis. Through the course of our conversation I learned that he had sold the original left side fender from his Barracuda the first time he had listed the pair on eBay. A gentleman from Vermont or New Hampshire had driven all the way to his home to buy it. I felt

fortunate to have driven just shy of three hours to buy mine! We swapped stories about other cars we had both owned. I told him of our ’65 Formula S, and I described the Valiant which would receive his Barracuda’s original fender. The Valiant had been an elderly woman’s car. Built with a 170 cubic inch Slant Six and three-speed manual transmission, it had served her well for 41,000 miles while likely never straying beyond a three mile radius of her home. Upon her death, the owner of the local general store had purchased it, and he stored it in an out-building with a dirt floor on one of his farms for well over ten years. There, mice and moisture had their way with the car. Its interior was destroyed, its floor was devoured by “tin worms,” and its engine and brakes were rendered unsalvageable. We had acquired it and fitted it with a healthy 318, four-speed, a few suspension modifications, a revamped brake system including front disc brakes, and fifteen-inch wheels and tires. It was a budget build for sure, but one with clear, achievable goals in mind. Before I left, Jim and I promised to meet up at the annual show at Meding’s Seafood north of Milford, Del., in June. He and his wife were already planning to traverse the Delaware Bay aboard the Lewes-Cape May Ferry with their Barracuda. Sadly, as we would learn later, that show would not happen in 2017. During my ride home I pondered my circle of friends and the situations through which I’d met each of them. With the exception of friendships from high school, nearly all of my others had sprouted from automotive connections. Many were through work, some through car clubs and cruises, and a few others through chance encounters involving cars or parts for sale. My automotive addiction has spawned many life-long friendships with good people. Cultivating these friendships has proven fulfilling. Since that time I have repaired the Valiant, and now my embarrassing mishap is but a memory. I have also helped Jim with a few parts for his Barracuda. I sent him an original gas cap and a few pieces of kick-down linkage. That’s the sort of thing we car folks do for each other, isn’t it? He e-mails me a few times a week with jokes, especially those of a political nature. In addition to our shared love of ‘60s Chrysler cars, our political views are aligned dead-on. I don’t know if Jim is planning to attend any of the same shows that I am this year. The Mopar show at Maple Grove Raceway and the Carlisle All Chrysler Nationals are on my list, though both will have passed by the time this story reaches the newsstands. At the very least, I will find out what local shows he plans to attend. I’ll pick up my car-nut grandson (now 8-years-old), and we’ll head for the ferry. Seeking out parts for our old cars often leads to far more than just the parts themselves. Sometimes good things come from unfortunate events. 7

Shine in the Pines

One thing that can be said about specialty car owners is that they do not let rain hamper their love for their favorite event. Case in point was the Spring Boardwalk Classic Car Show held in Wildwood, N.J., on Mother’s Day Weekend. The weather from Thursday night into Saturday was not great and the first thought that came to mind was that everyone would stay home and not tolerate the rain. Well, it may hinder some but not the many car owners who came out to show their rides on the boardwalk. As one strolled along the boards, there were plenty of cruisers with their various genres of transportation. From wild high-sitting trucks to ground-scraping vehicles, it was a fun show in spite of foreboding skies. The Greater Wildwood Hotel & Motel Association staged another fun car show to usher in the cruising season of 2017.

In 1766, Charles Read, a well-known ironmaster, built the Batsto Iron Works along the Batsto River in what is now Wharton State Park in Burlington, N.J. The area had an abundance of bog ore which could be mined from the area’s streams and rivers, and wood from the area’s forests was harvested for charcoal for smelting the ore. American iron can still be found at the historic site in the Pinelands region of New Jersey. That iron, of course, is found in the form of American classic and muscle cars. The Batsto Citizens Committee and the Cruising Classics Auto Club teamed up to present the 7th annual Batsto Shine in the Pines Car Show. There was no shortage of iron as nearly 200 rides came out to participate. The day was also highlighted by crafters and a glass and bottle show. Let’s not forget some fine bluegrass musicians playing for the show. History is still a big part of this 18th century village and it’s assisted by the classic rides of another type of “iron” for the past seven years.

Small Town, Big Celebration The Race of Gentlemen

When a community reaches the age of 150 years since its establishment, it’s time for a special party. Nestled in Buena Vista Township, New Jersey is a community called Richland Village. This is a place where the pride and personality of a small town in America shines very brightly. The township administrators wanted to share a great day and they succeeded with a car cruise and activities for everyone. Cruisers and spectators could take a real train ride or visit many local businesses in the village including the Patcong model railroad exhibit. A neat feature was a community tree that was quite old and was saved from the ravages of time with the town’s history carved on it and preserved. (The tree was sadly diseased and this was the best way to keep it from being cut down). The South Jersey Mustang Club took care of the cruise, the township took care of the festivities and time took care of preserving the spirit of the hometown USA.

For the last five years a group of hardcore dedicated North Jersey traditional rod and motorcycle club members called the Oilers have come to the South Jersey shore town of Wildwood. This group assists event promoters Mel Stultz and Bobbie Green in having a race on the beach that harkens back to the days when racing was considered a sport for gentlemen. Cars that are racing are hand-selected up to a 1936 make, and must have period-correct equipment for racing. The modern world does not apply. There is even a traditional car show that has rides that reflect back to the birth of the hot rod movement. Race participants and spectators came from as far away as Japan and Sweden as well as throughout the USA. For three days a year, it’s a race of rides from simpler times when men and women held onto a chivalrous code that truly makes this “The Race of Gentlemen.”

Spring Fling GM Thing Boardwalk Corvette Club based in Atlantic City, N.J. is a great example of a group dedicated to a particular marquee of automobile. Let’s face it, they have been enjoying the General Motor’s plastic fantastic Chevy Corvette as a club since 1983. So what is the next step in having fun and promoting their dedication to cars made by the “General” you may ask? Why, it’s the annual “Fling GM Thing,” an allGeneral Motors Car show in Colonial Smithville. This event is open to anything GM and any year. On this extraordinary beautiful summer-like day, the village of Smithville saw GM rides everywhere. Cars spanned all years and makes of GM products. It’s easy to see that Boardwalk Corvette Club knows a “shore” thing about rides from their favorite car manufacturer.

The Wheels and Wings Airshow took off on Memorial Day weekend at the Millville Army Air Field, with about 300 volunteers and a year of planning. It is a heart-pounding show with aerobatics, military air crafts, and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. The men and women pilots come from many different states. More than 50,000 people are estimated to have attended the event over the weekend. Airplanes and cars – what could be better that that?

Back to the Golden Era T

ake a step back in time as the Hagley Car Show returns on Sunday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show will feature more than 500 antique and restored cars, trucks and motorcycles that date from the early 1900s through the 1980s. The special feature this year is “Distinctively Different: Styling in the 1950s,” which showcases cars from the golden era of car design and production in the United States. The 1950s’ car culture is unparalleled by any other decade, and this year’s car show theme will celebrate the unique aspects manufacturers began using at that time. There were many innovations in design and safety, and the ‘50s gave birth to several highly prized classic cars. The jet set lifestyle had captured the hearts of the American public and designers of the time jumped at the chance to expand this fascination.

Visitors to the car show will enjoy vehicle parades, a vintage juke box display, video simulators, pedal car racing, and a festival food court. The show will take place in the area surrounding the first du Pont home, garden and barn. Parking for Hagley’s Car Show will be on site. Visitors can enter through Hagley’s main entrance off Route 141. Tickets to the show will be offered in advance at the Hagley Store or hagley.org from Aug. 14 through Sept. 13 (online) or Sept. 16 (store). Tickets start at $8. Admission is free for Hagley members and children 5 and under. The event will be held rain or shine. — Cruising Magazine

We are well into a great show and cruise season with many more fantastic events planned, so don’t let that ride stare at the four walls in your garage. Remember these are family events, get everyone to come out and enjoy a show or cruise. This isn’t Florida or California where they can cruise all year long. We are on a limited time frame, so take a television break and cruise on down to your local car event with the family. Just a quick note about some sad news that by now many of you already know. The famous Flemings Pumpkin Run is now done. This was always an outstanding event with cars showing up from, well you know, everywhere. My personal thanks to Harry Fleming and his staff for the many great years of the Pumpkin Run. This event will always be remembered by the thousands who have been there. Thanks for the memories. I suppose somewhere along the lines I have asked the question: “Why do guys and gals join a car club?” On the other hand, “Why don’t guys and gals join a car club?” Questions I’ll never have the answer for. Only you will know the answer, so share that with me sometime because I would be interested in your response. Remember the car clubs of the ‘50s and ‘60s? The start of hot rodding and gofast cars began after many of our family members came home from World War II. That escalated into the birth of the car club, where the guys had special jackets with their club name, black boots, jeans, t-shirts with a pack of cigarettes rolled up in the sleeve and finally, but not least, the long, slick black hair. We’ve all seen this portrayed in many TV shows, but in reality, the concept of a car club was born. That close-knit group of guys and gals has grown into the clubs we have today, however in a slightly different form. Frankly the keywords in that statement were “close-knit.” I have spoken to many other club presidents about general club activities, membership, participation and so on. Some presidents have told me they have more than 100 members, but couldn’t tell you who half of them were. Support is a huge part of being a member of a car club. However, support comes in many forms such as showing up at club events, showing up at meetings, playing an active role at events or simply general help with club activities. A car club member shouldn’t have to ask who the club officers are. Those members are referred to as a ghost member. Do you get my point? Why join if you’re not willing to help support? We presidents also understand that age has creeped up on many members and we know the will is there but sometimes the body is not. Fact of life! We ask only to do your best. Clubs today just don’t hot rod around and raise heck, they have a purpose and a mission and in order to carry out that mission it takes more than five or 10 percent of the membership. So, if you decide to join a club, remember you are signing on to help complete a mission. In today’s world club missions are to have fun and support charities of which there are plenty to go around. Our biggest rewards are seeing smiles on the faces of people less fortunate than ourselves who we have helped because we accomplished our mission. Think about it. Finally, let’s not lose sight of why we participate in this wonderful hobby. It’s all about having fun. Keep On Cruisin’…Bill Nese

THE CAR CLINIC “Where you are treated like a patient, not a victim”

302.421.9100 | 59 Germay Dr. | Wilmington, DE 19804

In early June I went to the 3rd annual Rockabilly Uprising in historic Smithville, N.J. The event was hosted by The Underground, which is a punk rock and countercultural shop. They sell all sorts of unique things like clothing, accessories, posters and more. The owners Mike and Lucy are coming up on celebrating 10 years at Smithville. The Underground is a mustsee, and my favorite store. It also features special events, vendors, artists and more. At the Uprising, The Underground put on an amazing Pin Up contest with 25 other gals. Yours truly was in the contest, too. There was no shortage of winged eye liner, red lips, polka dot dresses and high heels with lined stockings. The car show was put on by Dead Rodz Revival. The cars ranged from classic and muscle to rat rods. To get more information on upcoming events contact The Underground on Facebook, undergroundnj92@gmail.com, theoriginalunderground.com, or (609) 652-5200.

CRUISING 101 Hi Gang, Well, a lot has been going on since the last issue. I want to make it perfectly clear that my thoughts printed here are my thoughts and only mine. If you agree, good, if not…good. Some general pet peeves of mine: A gentleman goes out and puts a great amount of time and effort into making a great car show, and over a span of 21 years, he achieves his goal, drawing 30,000 people and over 3,000 cars. Then a township, a community, a city or an immature person steps in and creates chaos. I must admit hot cars leave black marks on pavements, but that takes some knowledge. Meanwhile, others step in with one-day events off the beaten path only known to locals. And why is it that when an organization takes a show to a food joint, the “joint” never puts in extra help? I guess it’s better to get a tan while waiting in line or having heat stroke. These joints should take notice, because not all of the people in the car hobby are young kids. I am quite sure there are other issues at hand for sure, that I am not privilege to, but these are my thoughts on the matter, and having run shows, road rallies, and other events for over 40 years I believe I have a little knowledge. In other news, a very big event is coming up, the 2017 Boeing Show, hosted by “The Good Larry,” aka Rev. Larry Weed and his crew on Sept. 16. Also check out the Downtown Woodbury Show on Sept. 2 with some interesting trophy classes, and of course the other biggie, Downtown Millville Aug. 12. By the way, thanks to all of you who didn’t wake me up during a snooze at one of the events I attended, although it wouldn’t hurt – I’d like to meet you! See ya at the events!

SHIFTINGGEARS By Ben Notaro • red63vetnj@comcast.net 'wan•na•be‘wän’bē,’wôn’bē/ noun, informal, derogatory noun: wannabe; plural noun: wannabes; noun: wanna-be; plural noun: wanna-bes 1. a person who tries to be like someone else or to fit in with a particular group of people. “a car-struck wannabe” adjective: wannabe; adjective: wannabee 1. aspiring or wanting to be a specified type of person by showing off. “A reckless person who tries to impress people at a car event.” I’m starting this column with a definition that was taken from the Webster dictionary and tweaked over by a world-famous author and man of a thousand letters…me! Just kidding about that last part. But in all seriousness, there is a concern about the individual that is a wannabe. These individuals, many times, are the people in the car hobby that come out after an event and bring their rides that may not be part of the event’s accepted vehicles. Now like many events, some cars are not permitted for whatever the event promoters deem. Well, the wannabe usually waits until the show or cruise settles down and takes it upon themselves to make their presence known by causing an attention-getting maneuver such as a loud muffler rapping, revving up their engine and probably the worst thing…locking the brakes and doing a smoking burnout. The wannabe has been known to cause major headaches for shows and, in particular, cruises with their antics. Case in point: I had read several articles about the super cruise/show in Ocean City, Md. Seems the registered participants knew the importance of behaving in a town where they are guests at an event. They knew their limitations in engine revving and tire chirping. Well, like any event staged in a community where the activities are on the street, it was also a time where many wannabees started to filter in. The result, as per conversations and articles that I had gleaned, left a bad taste in many of the local residents’ mouths. Let’s face it; people who do not know our hobby sometimes tend to judge many by the actions of a few. I do not know how one can fully control the invasion of wannabees. I do know that a possible deterrent would be to triple the fines for people who want to test the traffic and safety rules to the limits. My final thoughts are rather simple. Use common sense when participating at a car gathering. Ignore the irresponsible wannabe and, if possible, use your camera to record and turn in the wannabe (or even the unruly registered participant) to the local authorities. Perhaps the irresponsible car guy/gal will “wannabe” a participant of the local judicial system and realize that some lessons need to be learned the hard way. Department of Recreation: It’s a hobby made to give you a million SMILES per gallon. Department of Communications I: Every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. tune in to 92.1 FM to “Show and Go Garage” radio. Hosts Ben Notaro and John Quinn talk about the hobby and some events. Department of Communications II: “The Racing Line with Bill & Jeff” on 92.1 FM on Tuesday at 7 p.m. with Geoffrey Hall and Bill VonSuskil.
