Springtime Rides Are the Best!

By Stacy Zimmerman, Speedster Editor, [email protected]

Spring has sprung and car show season is officially underway. I can’t believe that April will arrive on Monday – this year is going by way too fast! This year’s National Activities calendar has 13 events on it, and we’ve already had three of them. With another two happening next weekend, we will have hosted almost 40% of our events before mid-April. If you haven’t added any National Activities to your personal calendar yet, you better get on it!

With the arrival of spring, we see changes in the temperatures, buds on trees and flowers start to show themselves, and the daylight after work lasts just a little longer. Here at National Headquarters, we’ve even seen the arrival of tourists start because today is opening day for our local amusement park, Hersheypark, which those of you who come to Hershey in October can attest to is literally right next door to our building.

For many of us, springtime is the signal we’ve been waiting for all winter – the signal that it’s time to get our cars out. They have been waiting patiently in the garage for this time to arrive. You’ll head to the garage, turn on some tunes, uncover your precious baby, and roll him/her out into the sunshine and cool breeze. You’ll take a walk around the car just to check him/her out, and then pop open the hood to do a thorough inspection. Once you’ve taken care of any immediate concerns, it’s time for a hand-wash and wax and don’t forget to scrub the tires. It’s time to open the doors and air out the car a little while you do a wipe down inside and clean the windows. Now, you are both ready to take your first drive of the season.

I’m going to throw out a little challenge to all of you today… We did something similar a few years ago and got a great response, so I am hoping for the same results. During the month of April, get your car out of the garage and ready for the season. When you take your first springtime ride, be sure to snap a photo and email it to me with your name, year-make-model of the car and where the photo was taken. We don’t care if you are just driving to the grocery store or the bank or taking a day-drive to visit friends – all drives count! And if you are an early-bird or live in a much better climate than south central Pennsylvania and have already taken your first springtime ride, it’s ok – just snap a photo on your next drive and submit that one. Everyone who submits a photo will be put into a drawing for some fresh AACA gear.


Don’t let me down –

I want to see your

springtime rides to

anywhere and everywhere!

Library Update

By Jen Wolfe, AACA Library Director, [email protected]

Newly Updated Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild Display!

We’re more than just books and sales literature here at the AACA Library, and one of our most unique display spaces has just gotten a total spring refresh! Thanks to some generous donations over the past year, our collection of Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild models and memorabilia has nearly doubled. The Guild was a national program sponsored by General Motors that ran from the 1930s through the 1960s for youth and college-aged boys. The boys competed to win scholarships for college by constructing models of Fisher Body’s emblematic Napoleonic Coach, and eventually concept car models. GM, for their part, benefited from the opportunity to identify young design talent across the country. The AACA library thanks all of the Guild alumni who have donated to the collection over the years – this exhibit is diverse and dynamic because of the wide array of items and documents that have been entrusted to us.

If you subscribe to Hagerty Drivers Club magazine, you may have seen their feature story in the March/April issue on the Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild. The AACA Library was listed as one of the locations where people can visit to see original model car examples on display. Our exhibit space is comprised of 4 glass cases and an exhibition wall, and features storyboards on the history of the program, model cars and Napoleonic coaches, drawings/sketches and tools, a variety of literature and articles, correspondence to and from Guild participants, and associated memorabilia. While the Drivers Club article stated our collection consisted of 26 cars and 1 coach – we actually have 31 model cars and 2 coaches!

Library staff have worked over the last few months to incorporate some of the newest additions and revamp the exhibit to show the history of the Guild program and the process used to create the models by the boys who participated. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the Guild program (or an alumnus!), or are hearing about it for the first time, it’s a display you won’t want to miss the next time you’re at AACA National Headquarters.

Call Out for Pictures

If you attended either of the library’s 2024 convention seminars (The Library & You or Preserve & Protect) we’re hoping you took some pictures! Library staff did not get any of our own, but we’d love it if you could share any photographs you might have taken. Please send images to Jen Wolfe at [email protected]. Thank you in advance!

New AACA Membership Brochure Available

Car show season is upon us. Are you prepared?

When your region or chapter holds a local car show, that is your best opportunity to recruit new members. The people attending your show are there because they already have an interest in antique cars. If your event is open to non-members, those who have registered and are showing their cars are already willing to participate. These are the folks you should be engaging about how much you enjoy being an AACA member and that they should think about joining.

Now, don’t be caught empty-handed at this point! Make sure your region has something to hand out to potential new members. When you are planning your event, be sure to reach out to National Headquarters to get a supply of materials to help you.

All of these items are available to you at no charge:

-- NEW! AACA National Membership Brochure

-- AACA National Membership Application

-- Mustang Car Cutouts

-- AACA Region Membership Brochure

-- AACA National Military Membership Program

Brochure & Application

To request a supply of these items, please email Karen and include your region, address where you would like the items mailed to and the date of your event.

Now, go out there and get those members!

Trivia Question

What was the first car to include a backup light as standard equipment

in series production, which was automatically illuminated in reverse?

Member Story: The Jeep Bolide XJ-002 Concept Car

By Dan Kunz, Vero Beach, FL, [email protected]

This is a member submitted article.

“It was conceived but never built, its existence a myth.” Incorrect! Jeep historians including Ron Szymanski (Jeep’s Corporate Historian), Pat Foster (noted Jeep author), and John Conde (AMC’s Public Relations Historian) were all unaware of the Bolide. It was conceived and built as a one-of-one concept car for the 1970 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), although it was shown at a separate booth due to its unconventional and somewhat clandestine nature. Noted automotive writer and editor Martyn Schorr and I were at the show, and he took and published photos of the car.

The car was ‘lost’ after the NYIAS. AMC didn’t want it back; it was ‘too wild’ for their thinking. It went back to its developer (Borg Warner’s Cycolac Division and their skunk works Centaur Engineering, led by Dann Deaver who originally designed and built the Bolide). Deaver developed The Man from U.N.C.L.E. TV car and concepts including the Can Am One (Corvair—SCCA Competitor) and a Jeep Camper, plus others. Marketing input was from Jack Griffith, who was to market the car through Huntington Motors in select Jeep dealers as a future model for Jeep. Jack did similarly with the TVR-based Griffith V8 Ford Engine product he conceived. Mike Mooney, the current owner of Griffith Motors, will be publishing information about Jack’s involvement with the Bolide.

Some unique history… This one-of-one as shown at the NYIAS was a clandestine operation of Kaiser-Jeep President (or VP, records disagree) John Cady. It was contracted to Borg-Warner and was the first proposed bubble T-top to be production built. It was the first car called a “Sport and Utility Vehicle” (by name, not SUV initials), and the first authorized Kaiser-Jeep concept/prototype built out of house. It was intended to be offered through select Jeep dealerships as a ‘likely new direction for Jeep.’ Unfortunately, John Cady, Borg-Warner, Dann Deaver, and Jack Griffith all lost the bet. AMC didn’t want it back.

Well, I found this one-of-one show-car.

The car was slightly modified for on/off-road and mud racing. It had been hand-brush painted in 5 colors, including hot pink and camo. It was found running with 9,049 miles. It was titled and registered in 5 states, street driven in at least 2 states, and there had been 12 owners over the years.

Full provenance exists since the V-6 Commando it was based on left the assembly line. The Bolide is being restored to its NYIAS show condition. That restoration includes the rough fiberglass interior and underbody, the frame and interior being hand-painted with house paint (including every wire, nut and bolt!).

The black house paint was originally applied by two guys in the box trailer as it was being driven to the show. Dann Deaver, while meeting with Mark Stratton, Society of Manufacturing Engineers and me, relayed that unique detail. The Bolide is nearly all original and only a few NOS parts are being used. It will never be perfect; it was designed and built to be used, and it has been. But for an accurate restoration… we wonder where the paint drips were?

For more information, Google: Jeep Bolide XJ-002. AllPar has a YouTube video of the car running and it has been featured in Hemmings, Muscle Car Magazine (Pat Foster) and Legend Magazine (Alex Kefford).

We want to hear from you!!

We are always looking to feature articles from AACA members in Speedster. We'd love to share your personal accounts of tours and shows you have attended, restoration projects, unique vehicle stories and history, and any other stories you think other AACA members would enjoy hearing about.

Stories should average about 500 words or less. And we love photos, so make sure to include some! Please send your photos and stories to Stacy Zimmerman at [email protected]

How Long Have You Been an AACA Member?

This stunning award can be bestowed upon a long-time member at an AACA Nationals or regional event, or simply by sending it to you in the mail.

To receive this pin, you must be a member for at least 50 years, which do not have to be consecutive. You (or your region/chapter) must then contact National Headquarters. We will research our archives to confirm your 50 years of membership.

Medi-Wallets Save Lives

Do you know what a Medi-Wallet is?

Or how it could save your life in an accident or emergency?

A Medi-Wallet acts as an immediate information resource for first responders at the scene of an accident or during an emergency situation by providing important medical data even if the injured person is unable to communicate with medical personnel.

How does it work? Once you have your Medi-Wallet, take a few minutes to fill out the information cards inside. The cards ask you for both general information like your name, insurance and emergency contact, and health-related information like your medical conditions, allergies, blood type, medications, etc. You are then ready to use your Medi-Wallet. Simply close the Medi-Wallet over your car seatbelt, the strap of your carry-on bag or even your belt. By always having your Medi-Wallet with you, especially while traveling, you and your family will have that extra little piece of mind.

Personal message from Steve Moskowitz, AACA CEO: If you have not purchased one of these very low-cost items (only $10!) to protect yourself in case of an accident or emergency, please think seriously about doing so. Many of us have medical issues, allergies and significant problems that first responders need to know about. If you or another family member are unable to provide timely information to emergency crews, it could be disastrous. Please consider purchasing one or more for your cars. We want to see all our members protected and this new idea seems to fit the bill.

Visit the AACA store to purchase your Medi-Wallet today!

(And depending on how many cars you own you might want to buy a couple!)

Trivia Answer

Wills Sainte Claire incorporated the backup light when it appeared in 1921, which is believed to be the first such application in series production. Former Ford engineer C. Harold Wills left the Motor Company in 1919 to venture out on his own on a quest to produce the perfect car. He selected a site along the Saint Claire River in Marysville (Port Huron), Michigan, to establish his enterprise which lasted until 1927. Wills is also said to have pioneered the use of an electric fuel pump on its later, six-cylinder cars. See for more information.
