to the Head Turnerz Car Club website. We have created a club to
enjoy the hobby of American classic cars and trucks and
socialization with others that enjoy this hobby as well. Our main
focus is to have fun with the classic car hobby, to promote courtesy
and respect within the club. We are here to assist club members and
other interested persons in obtaining, fine tuning, and the
restoration of classic vehicles. We encourage club participation in
local and non-local car events as discussed per the club members.
Our philosphy is to provide unity of thought within the club,
without discouragement of new ideas and presentations presented by
the member body. If you are interested in joining our club the
annual dues are $20.00.
Even if you are a member
of another car club, you are most certainly welcome at our
cruise-ins and club events.

Heat, Heat, Heat and I do love summer. Our club had its first Cars & Coffee Cruise-in at Bubba’s Diner 841 Broad St. June 28th and it was a success. Last month too, we went to Mcleod Farms in Mcbee, SC, ate at Bigs and toured the antique museum there. On June 21st. some of us participated in a Car Show at Dillon Park and it was a good time had by all (we have trophies to prove it ?). I do believe that if you have events every month, people can pick and choose the ones they want to participate in. I put my ‘62 Thunderbird on jack stands in the garage and took the hood off (Thank you Stanley and David) to work on it the next few months. I have already painted under the hood (gluing/putting new insulation back on) and paint/detail the engine compartment. It should be nice when I am done so please check out our Facebook page on the progress. We have other club members working on, cleaning on and putting new parts on their car/trucks too. If you do go to a show or cruise-in please drink plenty of water and try to stay cool. Until next time, Shift at Redline and Hold On!!!
TIP OF THE MONTH
Belt tension......older vehicles used a "v" belt to drive the alternator, power steering pump, water pump etc. Verify that the belt tension is correct by applying hand pressure to the belt. It should not move up or down by more than about a half inch. If it moves more than that, it needs to be tightened. You folks that have the newer vehicles with the serpentine belts should not have to worry as much about tension as there is a tensioner along the belt routing that applies spring pressure to a pulley to keep the belt tight. I do, however, recommend when replacing a serpentine belt, you replace the tensioner assy also. Take care of your ride and she will take care of you.
But rather seek ye the kindom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you.
