View Full Version : Lake Placid Car Show
I attended a local car show on Sunday. We had wind, rain and 60 degree temps. In all there were about 150 cars and the largest crowd they've had in 28 years.
My Mark took 2nd in the 55-60 vintage (non chevy) division, losing to a 57 Thunderbird. Did I mention there were only 2 cars in the class?
In golf we always say "there are no pictures on the scorecard"--i.e. it doesn't matter how bad your shots were, we just count the number of strokes. Same thing applies here--there's no mention of how many cars were in your class on the ribbon, just where you placed. Second Place: Congratulations!:D

T-bird must have peen really nice to beat out its big brother.
It's not that his T-Bird was nice, I think it's that people know what that car is. He wasn't even supposed to be eliglible for awards since he ran out of gas during the parade and arrived at the show a half hour late. Last year he overheated during the parade and had to wait so he wasn't eligible for judging.
I have some "issues" with mine that I need to get addressed, but it looks great at 20 feet. Before I got the car it was stored outside for a bit and the water puddled in the rain gutter on the driver's side. There are also a spot on each fender that wasn't repaired properly. Finally, there are those darn holes in the headlight rings. :D

The fenders are a large multi-piece assembly. The spots on your fenders is a seam where Ford was gluing some of the pieces together.
As far as the screws in the headlight rims goes at least you don't have to worry about them falling out.:D
How do the headlight rims come off?
I understand there are clips on the backside,
but is it a matter of prying them off?

Check for screws first. Some have screwed theirs in.
Yes, the pull out. I took two wire coat hangers and made hooks on the end, inserted them alongside the headlight and tugged. It might be smart to have somebody there to catch it.
Thats why I couldn't think of any other way
I like the idea of a tool made of wire hangers.
