Thanks to all of you that have been sending me e-mails with leads! Some of them are bearing fruit! I still don't have any Hupp Skylark leads yet. If you know someone with a Hupp, have them take a gander at their club's directory. I've got a few feelers out there right now, but you've come through on the Hollywoods so I thought I'd challenge you with the Skylarks! Thank you again for helping make 2011's Annual Reunion a great one!

I had a chance to visit with Ken when attending the 50th Reunion of the club in Auburn in 2002. We went to his house in Fort Wayne and he graciously shared his Graham collection with us. We had a chance to get up close and personal with his Hollywood Convertible and as far as I could tell the body from the firewall back was all Cord as I think they all were. Why anyone would ban this car from the park is beyond me.

I think the inclusion of these cars has been a long time coming. Unfortunately, I won't be there to see them. Hope somebody makes a CD available of the whole 2011 event including the Cord Convoy.

I'm sorry that you are going to miss this year's Annual Reunion.

I can't wait for everyone to see the field of Cord "Cousins" that has been assembled for this year! We have some VERY special guests coming. I'm not revealing anything more! You'll just have to be there!

Just another note on the issue of Hollywoods, Skylarks and Cord resto-rods.

CCCA permits no cars in their events except those on their "list". Packard clubs nothing but Packards, etc. Because our cars, Cord in particular, had variations built by other companies, and are so attractive to customizers and to replica-makers, we have a whole other universe of cars to consider welcoming.

This is not advocacy for a specific position. It is rather a statement that the ACD Club is in the unique position of dealing with cars that represent a sort of homage to the glory of our originals. (And many of which are interesting in themselves.) Let's keep this door open while we thoughtfully consider the opportunities.

I took 2000+ photos on a recent 2 week vacation in Viet Nam, let's see if I can do the same in 1 week at Auburn 2011 :D

Hi Kellie,

The cousins were there and were wonderful to see. Thank you for making this great idea come to fruition.

I particularly enjoyed seeing the one and only Hupp Corsair. I had seen photos of this car, but what a thrill to see it up close and splendid!

Congratulations, and "Well Done."
