There is also a website that
you can visit to see if you like different wheels on your
If you are a member on our Facebook page, you would have
seen this already. I had a picture of my car at almost the
angle and used it to see how I would like certain wheels.
The name of the site is Wheel Visualizer. This is what my
car looked like when
I changed out my 15” SSII’s for a few different
wheel styles. The best part? I didn’t have to turn a
tire iron or jack up the car. It was all done on the computer.
And it turns out that I really like my SSII’s.
Edmonton Area A&W Cruise Nights: A&W has offered their
A&W card to members in the Edmonton area who cruise on
Friday and Saturday nights. The card entitles the member to
two Teen Burger meals (two burgers, two fries and two drinks)
for the price of one. You will also receive a free meal for
the cruise in on May 17 & 18. See our Facebook page for
more info. I asked if they had a program like this for our
members in the Calgary area and was told "no". I'll
be emailing members to come over to my place in April when
I get them. Some of you haven't picked up your cards for the
last three years, so this year I didn't order one for you.
If this is you, and this year you’ve decided that you
do want one, call me and I’ll see what can be done.
40 Years of Ownership
Well, if you didn’t see it on our Facebook page, March
22 was the 40th anniversary of me buying my 442 in 1979. I
was living in Calgary at the time and saw the car for sale
in the auto section of the Calgary Herald. I went to see the
car. A few other people had seen the car before me and decided
not to buy it because it had the 455 engine. So I bought it.
I asked the owner, “What are you asking for it?” He
said “$5000”. So I used my best negotiation technique
that I had learned up to that point (4 years out of high school).
I looked him straight in the eye and knew I had him right where
he wanted me. So, I countered with definate “OK”.
Oh well, I never thought I’d have her 40 years. I’m
glad I was so shrewd.
Rocket Round Up XXVI - July 20, 2019
Are you signed up for our annual meet in Olds? It’s looking
like it will be a good show. Remember, the faster you register,
the faster you pick a door prize or an envelope with money
in it. Will someone win the $100 this year? Hope to see you
at the Rocket Round Up in Olds.
