    Long Day..

    https://www.ferndaleconcours.org/ It's going to be a long day on Saturday Sept 8. That's the weekend of the Santa Maria AMC Car Show. Right after the show is over the Playmate AMX will be back on the road for another 500 miles to make it to Ferndale by the next morning for the Ferndale Concurs Show

    I'll start the discussion..

    And Pacers too!
  10. I started the SoCalAMX club in 2001, admittedly at the time, to be an AMX only club. The club took off slowly at first, and gained momentum. Originally we met at a Fuddruckers Restaurant in Pasadena for the first few years, which served as our club meetings. Almost immediately other AMCs besides AMXs showed up, mostly Javelins. Then we had our first car show in 2007 and the club continued to grow. I saw a need in the early days to change our club name to be more inclusive of all AMCs, but it was too late, the name SoCalAMX stuck and its been used ever since. The topic of a name change has come up again. Being that our club is a chartered club of the national organization, AMC Rambler Club (AMCRC) it makes sense to have a club name that does not sound so exclusive, meaning AMXs only. I am looking for input on ideas for a name change, or if the name should be changed or not. There's a poll attached to this message. Make your vote heard. I wanted to add here, the choice ******** is not listed in the poll. The name is already taken by another club. There are other interesting choices in the poll that have been suggested in a previous survey. They are still up for consideration, but I'm looking for a name that includes SoCal in it, as that is the geographical area our club serves.

    Power probe-cool tool!

    Okay, this power probe tool is a must have if trouble shooting electrical problems. A pair of wires feeding out of the probe go to the car battery to power it. Then touch the tip of the tool to whatever electrical part you're fixing. If the point you touch is equal to ground, the probe will light up green and beep with a certain tone. If the point is 12v, then the probe will light up red and beep another way. You can quickly go around and see what's hot and what's ground. If the point being tested in not ground or hot, then push the toggle button up or down for 12v or ground to apply 12v or ground and see if it fixes the problem. It's available at Amazon for $61 in a basic kit or deluxe kit is more.

    Detailing your car

    Great tips Steve. Did you already have this typed up and copy and paste it in, or just sit down and type it in? The problem with sharing detailing tips is if the others pick up on them, they'll start winning the trophies!
