  Looks like we are ending another summer, year 2016. This year was the first full summer of car shows. At least the shows around here in these parts. I'm getting very close to real retirement, and hopefully, next year I'll be able to venture out farther to the car shows across the Delaware Bay. There are only a couple of shows left for this year. I do plan to attend, that is, if the vacation days hold out.   Wildwood, had their Big 50's and beyond bash. I was there, and here's a video. It was a nice time, and it was a nice day too.

  We walk through the Doo Wop museum. 50's-60's neon signs, and all kinds of collected items from the time. These items would be gone, destroyed, if these people diden't start this Wildwoods musieum.

  Seems all the car shows are done for the season. Time to bring in all the paints, chemicals, that may freeze. Put them in the totes until next time. Also, time to be searching out padded dash foam and vinyl material for my next car's upgrade. I plan to make my own padded dash, and as close to the original as possible. That will be this winter. But, for now, how about a Halloween special.

  I was asked if I wanted to put my car into a Halloween "walk through". Someone I know has this every year. He's really into it, and does it up to extreme every year. So, for that said, here's a video of this years Halloween excitment. Hope you all like it. Don't forget to comment, scribe to my You Tube Channel.

  'Forgotten Odds And Ends' In this video we get to the forgotten fixes. A few things I was putting off because under the dash, is tight. This video, deals with the stucking key switch in ACC position. It's not that easy. Also, we take a look at the Turn Signal Cam. AND, Diana at a car show with the 62. Diana is dressed in authentic 60's MOD style.

NOTE: This video should be where the next video is. So, when you watch the next video, the key switch shows it's not fixed. I have this one and the next swapped. Can't change it now, so just remember.

  After playing with the paper clip, feeling for the button, the cylinder comes out. Then, we can fix 2 problems we found.

Comment:
  Playing with the Turn Signal Cam. One of the little return arms are broken. Can't find this cam anywhere. But, I have an idea, we will have to let this sit until the weather brakes.
