f you have never been to a show at Paul's this is a great event you do not want to miss. Paul has the largest restoration shop on L.I. with at least 25 restorations going on at any given moment.

The shop is wide open for a complete tour and it's truly amazing to see the many restorations in progress. This will be a great charity event with cash prizes, swap meet, a band, raffles, T-shirts and a 50/50 raffle. Food will be available.

Check for entry fee must be received no later than October 18th. Please mail the entrance fee of $15 to Paul's at 131 Brook Ave, Deer Park N.Y. (again this is for a charitable cause). Make the check out to "Paul's Rods and Resto's C/O HFOT". You can pay at the gate but it is $25.

Below is a message from Bill Carberry:

To any car club members or classic car hobbyists out there that have not heard of SEMA, this is what it is all about. Us getting a voice with state and federal government officials to voice our opinions on what is important to our hobby. Protecting our hobby from those that do not know or care about classic vehicles.  

If you want to have a voice you should join SAN (SEMA Action Network). Please see the attached form, print it out and then go on the SAN site and join up (click on 'Click here to join'). It is free and will help our hobby in having a voice that government officials will not want to ignore.

Submitting your car to Newsday

Below is a E-mail from our friend Dave at Newsday.

If you would like to see your car featured in Fridays Newsday follow the instructions below.  Don't forget to mention your favorite Mopar Club :)

With the weather getting warmer (hopefully!) and collectible cars coming out of hibernation, I want to encourage all owners and club members to submit their rides for possible placement in Newsday's "In the Garage" column appearing every Friday. 

We're interested in a wide range of vehicles, including antique, classic, street rod, rat rod, customs, exotics, domestic and foreign, future collectibles, military, and even motorcycles. (if I've left out any category, please ask about it).  

Submitting your car for the column is easy.  It takes just three steps:  

1.  Send a sharp, good quality photo by e-mail to thegarage@optonline.net.  To see the quality of the photos we need, please take a look at the online version of the column at http://www.newsday.com/classifieds/cars/in-the-garage-1.215769.  

2.  Review the attached submission form and, along with the photo, send me answers to each question in the same e-mail.  The more information you can provide, the better the presentation of your vehicle and the quicker it is likely to appear. (Both the photo and answers should be sent directly to me at thegarage@optonline.net and should not be faxed or mailed to Newsday's office.)  

3.  Complete and sign the attached photo consent form and fax or mail it directly to Newsday.  Once you've sent the consent form, shoot me a confirming e-mail since I don't work in the Newsday office where the form is received.   We look forward to featuring some interesting cars this spring and summer.  I also look forward to seeing you at the shows.  Thanks, and have a great show season!  

Best,   David

Our own part number guru Steve K. has sent me a form to get out to the club. If you are looking to decode your 1930 - 1967 car or 1930 - 1954 truck, you can do so directly from Chrysler.  There is a fee involved.  See Chrysler Historical attachment.
