Some helpful hints for detailing your vehicles include brightening your white walls. SOS pads work well for general cleaning, as well as for blemishes and stain removal on whitewalls. Use Simple Green as a general cleaner. To brighten the white, use either baking soda or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. To use Black Magic Bleche-Wite, make sure to follow the instructions on the label. To use an SOS pad, wet both the tire and pad. more>>
RM Southeby's Auctions and RM Auto Restoration
I first became of RM Auctions in Monterey California during "Car Week". I am lucky enough to be able to cover the events for the NAACC website and try to see what cars are available at the various auctions happened during car week. I am always on the lookout for cars with a Canadian connection and it is not surprising there are quite a few cars with a Canadian Connection.
Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, written by Rudy Croken former NAACC PEI Director.
Here is what Greg Williams' review. | AUGUST 22, 2017
At the turn of the last century, automobiles were busy reshaping North American cities and making travel more convenient. That is, all except in one Canadian province. In the early 1900s, automobiles were banned from the roads of Prince Edward Island.
“When I first heard that, I thought it was ridiculous,” says author Rudy Croken, whose book Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, released earlier this summer, shines a light on a little known aspect of P.E.I.’s past.
“When I was growing up, my dad told me about the ban, but I thought it might have been for a month or so,” Croken says. “I had no idea (it was more than a decade-long struggle) to get cars on the road.”

Club and Officers/Directors Insurance
The NAACC clubs insurance program fees have remained the same for the past ten years.
Please keep aware of what is happening in your area.
I am going to write mayor and council and ask that, if and when, they do ban all cars from the Vancouver downtown core that they make exception for old cars that are on a club sanctioned event or are performing a chartable service such as a wedding.
Soon we will be overrun by By–Laws here in the Vancouver city core.
