CAC 2007 - Friday

Friday is road trips, tech tips and games day.  Two road trips - In the morning was the North Star tour, this year it was a drive in the country with a stop in Tedrow (small town close by) at an antique shop, only problem the shop moved and didn't tell our guide, we did see every street in Tedrow a couple of times.  Was a nice drive anyway, no pictures, ended to soon.  On the other end of the day was the Keystone regions road rally parade through Wauseon with a stop for ice cream at Tiny's.  In between those two road trips were several tech sessions sponsored by the Michiana Region, Crosley Skill-A-Thon games by the Ohio region and lots of god Crosley conversation.  The evening sessions were started off with a talk by Ed Jennings on Powel Crosley (Ed is the co-author of Dreams Do Come True) and a gab session where vendors announced new products.

Bonnie Dean, matriarch of the Dean family shows she still has the nack to handle a Crosley.  Bonnie, her husband Dermont and son Robert drove their Crosley many years from West Virgina to the Nationals.  Some years they each drove one.  Bonnie's Crosley now rides to the National in style in her son's Toy trailer.

This is the Walter Martin PMY-2 H-Mod racer.  It was built in the 1960-61 time frame.

PMY-1 was made of papier mache by Walter and students from his High School shop class he taught.

PMY-2 was built in fiberglass and aluminum.  Some of the glass work was from molds made from PMY-1.

PMY-3 also exists and was suppose to be shown but something must have came up.

PMY-1 seems to have been lost but still may show up someday.

Tech session on how to make patterns for wagon insert panels.  There was also a session on special tools for working on Crosleys, and at least one other that I missed completely.
