2011 Brookdale Place Display

by Nell O.

What a great day NAR members had at Brookdale Farms on Saturday, Oct 29! There was a great turnout of NAR members and others with old cars and there were lots of spectators. Everyone seemed to enjoy the hot dogs, RC colas, and moon pies...and the cars, of course! And you could hear comments like: "I remember the rumble seat...I did not like to ride in it because it made a mess of my hair."

John Malone and Nate Adams from WRSA Radio provided great 50s and 60s music that Bob and Luci danced to and Nate asked automobile trivia questions giving folks a chance to win prizes. As M.D. Smith said "The DJ from 96.9 FM sure added great atmosphere with 50's and 60's music and theme songs like "My 409" by the Beach Boys. The trivia questions he asked were fun also. The 409 was a Chevy Impala SS, and I had forgotten that. The Batman car was a Lincoln Futura. I never had any idea of that."

NAR members attending were: Wayne S. (1931 Cadillac), Ed H. (1931 Willys), M.D. and Judy S. (1937 Plymouth), Bob and Luci B. (1941 Cadillac), Randy and Nell O. (1949 Hudson), Ron and Martha D. (1950 Buick), Gene and Russell K. (1964 Buick Riviera), Russell and Sherry L. (1975 Corvette), and Terry O. (1976 Lincoln Continental). Ask Ron about his movie poster given to him by member Jim M.

2010 Huntsville Christmas Parade

by Marcia S.

Once again, the North Alabama Region of the AACA was well-represented in the Huntsville-madison County Christmas Parade. The day was cool and drizzly which kept the crowds smaller than usual, but those who braved the elements saw a fine display of floats, marching bands, and, of course, automobiles. We are proud of our members who took their time to participate in this annual parade.

Wayne and Vicki S. were in Bob B.'s 1929 Chrysler 77 dual-cowl phaeton, Ed and Anne H. presented their 1931 Willys-6 Sport Roadster, Gene and Russell K. were in the 1964 Buick Riviera (the 2010 Totcky Award winner), Eric, Brandon, and Tiffany B. drove Bob B.'s 1954 Dodge Royal convertible, while Bob and Luci were in their 1941 Cadillac. Don K. drove his 1965 Chevrolet Impala, Jerry F. and his granddaughter, Leah, were in his 1960 Chevrolet Impala, and Ray H. and Sandy H. were in Ray's One Only Roadster. It was a colorful and impressive array of cars for the people to enjoy along the parade route.

Randy O. in his 1968 Dodge Charger, Nell O. in their 1954 Hudson Hornet (with Doc Hudson poster from the movie CARS), and Bob and Luci B. in their 1933 Chrysler provided cars for the display along with race cars from TAC.
