Miles Through Time is a car museum where every car truly has a story. ATLANTE – The North Georgia Classic Car Museum keeps growing: North Georgia’s Miles […]]]>

The North Georgia Classic Car Museum keeps growing:

North Georgia’s Miles Through Time museum has an incredible collection of classic cars celebrating automotive history — but right now, founder Sean Mathis is just as focused on the future as he is on the past.

This morning we took a return visit to the Clarkesville Museum, which has undergone major changes since our last visit in July 2020 (you can watch that visit here). Since moving into the old Clarkesville Mill (the museum’s original location was in Toccoa), Mathis has expanded its offering considerably, showcasing even more cars on the ground and adding display cases. Beyond that, Mathis opened Vintage Garage Antiques, taking over the factory’s existing flea/antique market and giving the space a makeover; Mathis says the antique store serves as the “gateway” to the museum.

As for this growing collection of cars inside Miles Through Time, Mathis says the vehicles are all either donated to the museum or owned by members of the community who can “store” their classic cars while displaying them to the public. . As Mathis told us during our previous visit, “The museum is not just cars. It’s a history museum, it’s an art museum, and above all, I wanted a museum that would survive me. If this can be a cool place where people can come and see interesting things that all belong to people like them or were given away… that’s really what I wanted it to be. “

Miles Through Time is located at 583 Grant Street in Clarkesville and regular hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; admission to the museum is $10 for adults and $6 for children. For more information about the museum, click here.

Laura Snyder talks about the difference in drinking water: Is sparkling water as hydrating as regular water? Whether you’re looking for regular still or sparkling water, Laura Snyder explains how to gauge how much water you need to keep your body healthy each day, recommending people adjust their water intake based on several factors.

Rooftop LOA is a new hotspot in Atlanta for summer fun: General Manager Nicholas Hellberg, Executive Chef Matt Marcus and Pastry Chef Gus Castro discuss Atlanta Rooftop’s new location LOA (Leave of Absence). The space brings together three distinct offerings and experiences on a public rooftop, not affiliated with a hotel, like no other destination has done before. The 38,000 square foot space invites more than 21 guests to enjoy dizzying luxury with fresh coastal European cuisine at the restaurant, relaxing and pool service at the resort-style pool, and refreshing cocktails, bites and dazzling views at Le Bosquet.

Eric Benet talks about his show at City Winery and his upcoming TV show: Eric Benét is a contemporary R&B singer with light hip-hop influences and heavy adult contemporary influences. As a teenager, he performed in a family vocal group (aptly named Benét) with his sister and cousin. Beyond music, Benét is heavily involved in two charities and works on a television show. He will perform at City Winery tonight at 7 p.m. It will also be broadcast live. On Friday, it will have two shows, the first at 7 p.m. and the last at 10 p.m. For more information, click here.

Zekari Simmons, ASE Certified Automotive Technician for Carvana, shares tips on how to protect your car from the summer heat: Here are some tips to protect your car during the summer:

  1. Replace your wiper blades – Summer can bring heavy thunderstorms and buckets of water pounding against your windshield. To make matters worse, winter driving conditions – ice, snow, salt and extreme cold – may have done a number on your wiper blades. Test your blades at the start of summer and again before a big trip. On average, wiper blades should be replaced every 6 to 12 months, or as soon as visibility is noticeably reduced.
  2. Shade your engine – Just like a big tree in the summer sun, cooling systems protect engines from overheating. Systems should be flushed periodically as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Between flushes, make sure the coolant is filled to the proper level by checking the overflow tank.
  3. Check tire pressure regularly – Driving with underinflated tires can cause tires to overheat and increase the risk of blowouts, especially in extremely high road temperatures. Check your car’s tire pressure (including the spare) at least once a month, as tires typically lose about a pound of pressure per month through normal seepage.
  4. Monitor Fluid Levels – Most engine fluids lubricate and serve as coolants by helping to carry heat away from critical components. When fluid levels are low, the cooling effect is reduced, increasing the risk of overheating. Periodically check all vehicle fluids, including engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid, to make sure they are at proper levels. If fluids need to be topped up, be sure to use the type of fluid specified in the owner’s manual.
  5. Prepare for the unexpected – Even with preventative maintenance, summer breakdowns can still happen, all drivers should have a well-stocked emergency kit in their car. The kit should include water, non-perishable food, jumper cables, flashlight with extra batteries, flares or emergency beacon, basic hand tools and a first aid kit.

NEARLY 50 MILLION EXPECTED TO TRAVEL

A day often filled with family gatherings, beach time or parades, the 4th of July is a day many look forward to as summer approaches.

According to the Library of Congress, in the 1870s, July 4 was the most important secular holiday on the calendar. Congress passed an act making Independence Day a federal holiday on June 28, 1870. Even communities furthest from the western border rallied on Independence Day.

Fast forward to today, and summer travel is already in full swing. Independence Day will be no exception as AAA predicts 47.9 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home over the holiday weekend. This is a 3.7% increase from 2021, bringing travel volumes just below those seen in 2019.

DULUTH – Bayfront Park is set to be filled with vintage cars as the drivers of the 2022 Hemmings Motor News Big Race, presented by Hagerty Drivers Club, pull into Friday night, according to a press release from organizers of the race. Visitors are welcome to view classic cars and tour participants driving in this vintage car rally race.

“We are thrilled to bring this unique event to Duluth for the very first time,” said Race Director Jeff Stumb. “This will also be the first time the event has been held at Lake Superior.”

Unlike most races, this nine-day, 2,300-mile adventure spans 19 cities, from Warwick, Rhode Island, to Fargo, North Dakota, and it’s not all about speed. It’s a time/speed/distance rally, which means drivers and navigators are given precise instructions each day of the trip and are scored at secret checkpoints along the way and penalized one second for every second lost. early or late arrival. Just like golf, the score closest to par or the time prescribed by the rally master wins.

This 1937 Lagonda LG6, one of less than 100 ever built, is one of 130 cars taking part in the Great Race.

Contributed / The Great Race

The teams are made up of two people, a pilot and a navigator. The driver must keep the car at a steady pace, using a special speedometer that precisely measures speed, while the navigator deciphers cryptic instructions to get them from each day’s starting point to the finish line. ‘arrival. The navigator is also responsible for making the necessary calculations to catch up with time, due to unforeseen stops and delays.

Drivers are also given a special scoring handicap for driving older cars, known as the “age factor”. Because it is more difficult to compete in an older vehicle, they receive a score multiplier to compensate for the difficulties that come with the car.

About 130 cars ranging from 1916 to 1974 are registered for this race. The cars vary from a 1966 Aston Martin DB6 MK1, a 1937 Lagonda LG6, a 1970 Chevelle SS, a 1931 Phaeton and a 1974 Plymouth, which is an exact replica of the “Bluesmobile” from “The Blues Brothers “.

The course of the race changes every year. It’s the first time they’ve stopped in Duluth in the 39 years the race has been running. It is based on a 1908 race from New York to Paris. The race takes its name from a 1965 film called “The Great Race”. Drivers are vying for the $50,000 cut of the $150,000 purse.

A 1932 Ford Coupe sits in a parking lot.

Olivia and Genna Gentry won the 2021 Great Race in this 1932 Ford couple. This sister team is back in the 2022 race, which will make an overnight stop in Duluth on Friday.

Contributed / The Great Race

The sister team of Olivia and Genna Gentry of Newnan, Georgia hopes to defend their title from the 2021 event. The sisters were the first all-female team to win the race at 20 and 18 and won with a score of just 41.31 seconds on the perfect time behind the wheel of a 1932 Ford.

The first car is expected to enter Bayfront Festival Park around 5:15 p.m. with other cars expected to filter in a few minutes later as each driver leaves each stop at one-minute intervals. The next morning, the runners will fly to Fargo, the last leg of the race.

In a change for the history books, modified vintage electric vehicles will be allowed in this year’s iconic Bay to Birdwood event.

The event has become one of the largest historic motoring celebrations of its kind in the world, with cars dating back to the early 1900s making the 70 kilometer journey.

Classic and vintage cars will travel from the coast to the Adelaide Hills for the annual Bay to Birdwood race.

After the event was canceled due to COVID last year, organizer Michael Neale is hoping for record numbers this year.

“It’s back on the streets of Adelaide, 1,500 vehicles making their way,” Mr Neale said.

“During COVID, 90,000 people turned out on the streets of Adelaide [2020]. I wish there were 120,000 this year.”

Michael Neale hopes for 120,000 spectators this year. (ABC NEWS: Brant Cumming)

Green light for electric

In a world first that aligns with a shift in historic vehicle circles, the Bay to Birdwood will host historic vehicles converted to electric.

“By doing this we are actually saving vehicles that would have been lost to us,” Mr Neale said.

“If you look at who’s doing the Bay to Birdwood today, there’s a lot of young men and women.

“I’ve only had two people express concern about this, but it was more about whether we could still maintain the historical integrity of these vehicles.

“We are paving the way for a broader understanding of what a historic vehicle is.”

Originally built in 1973, the owner of this Jaunt Motors Land Rover Series III EV says modified vehicles are a way into the future.

Marteen Burger said the program preserves history.

“That vehicle has a history. It was an agricultural vehicle and now we’ve carried some of that history with it, the bumps are still there,” she said.

“The conversion of the vehicle required a lot of research and development.

“By converting them to electric, they are more reliable, more powerful and much safer.

“We really appreciate that the history of these cars lives on.”

1961 Corvette Resto-Mod in showroom

This 1961 Resto-Mod Corvette is set to be on display at Saturday’s vintage car show in Lenox. It has an estimated value of $750,000.




LENOX — It will be a trip down memory lane this Saturday as the Chamber of Commerce hosts its first full-fledged classic car show downtown in eight years, this time in partnership with Donovan Motorcars.

During the event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., over 50 classic and antique cars will be on display in the municipal parking lot and driveway behind and beside Berkshire Bank at 25 Main St. Cars will be judged on class and of the category, said Jennifer Nacht, executive director of the chamber.

“Our interest at Donovan Motorcars is to help the chamber bring people downtown and to help Lenox as another location to have a great car show,” said owner Brian Donovan, who created Pittsfield Road business over 30 years ago. “We hope to get off to a good start and build on it every year as it becomes a more well-known show, hopefully reaching car-loving locals and local clientele as another activity in Lenox.”

EAGLE CORRESPONDENT

To reach the world of vintage car enthusiasts, the company reached out to auto clubs, its customer base of several thousand customers as well as advertising, said Dean Forsman, sales, marketing and customer service specialist.

The chamber last sponsored a downtown classic car show in June 2014, when the Lenox Motorcar Classic featured displays of over 100 classic vehicles.

Among the main attractions expected at the show:

• A family-owned 1961 Resto-Mod Corvette, which is a modified restoration of an actual Corvette with many performance and appearance upgrades, including a 620hp engine, custom chassis and custom wheels. The vehicle is worth up to $750,000 if it hits the market, Forsman said.

• A fully restored black and tan 1967 Jaguar XTE Roadster, an open two-seater restored to new condition, owned for 50 years by the same Pittsfield family with an estimated sale price of at least $300,000.

• A restored 1950 Jaguar Mark 5 Drophead Convertible, owned by a Pittsfield family since it was acquired when new.

“People love to look at vintage cars, and downtown is a nice place to display the cars we’ve restored and show people what we can do,” Forsman said.

Restoring such vehicles requires documenting the condition of the car before work begins, since the goal is “to make it look like it’s out of the box, and better,” he said. declared. “But it looks exactly the same, a replica of the original in the best possible condition, to look brand new.”

The goal is to feature the auto show each year as one of the Chamber’s regular events to draw people downtown, he said.

The Lenox Fire Department will be serving hamburgers and hot dogs during the event. For more information, visit lenox.org/event.

A WEEKEND of vintage vehicles, steam locomotives and stalls descended on West Bay.

The West Bay Vintage Rally has returned after a two-year absence from Melplash Showground with a selection of vintage vehicle parades, ring displays, steam engines and market stalls.

The rally, first staged in 1979, enjoyed two days of sunshine as it welcomed visitors to the event organized by the West Dorset Vintage Tractor and Stationary Engine Club (WDVTSEC).

Wendy Beaven, Treasurer and Corporate Secretary of WDVTSEC, said, “The event went extremely well with great attendance from exhibitors and the general public.

“It was very successful because it’s one of the first in the area and people haven’t been out for so long.”

The annual event has returned to West Bay after two years of cancellations due to the pandemic, welcoming back exhibitors and visitors, as well as local food and drink vendors who were also present at the event.

A vintage auction was held on the first day of the event with agricultural machinery and nearly 800 lots of collectables, garden machinery, farm equipment and tools on offer.

Costs for the event have increased this year, but Ms Beaven still thinks they should raise a good sum for charity.

In recent years the club have been able to donate over £62,500 to local charities and community projects.

Money raised this year will go to local organizations that helped with the rally as well as local Sea Cadet and Boy Scout groups.

Mayor of Bridport Ian Bark said: “It was fantastic to see the return of the West Bay Vintage Rally after two years of cancellations due to the Covid pandemic. It is a much loved event by many and the weather was perfect. perfect for exhibitors and visitors to really enjoy themselves.

“On Friday, the magnificent sight, sound and smell of a steam engine pulling a trailer along West Street stopped people in their tracks to watch it climb the hill towards the lights before turning right into South Street towards West Bay – a big announcement for a big event.

“A big thank you to everyone who helped make this happen again.”

West Bay Vintage Rally changed location in 2013, moving to Melplash Showground after being held at Brit Valley Meadows.

The club consists of approximately 350 members who meet once a month to socialize, share experiences and organize club activities.

Is your vehicle road trip worthy?

The hot summer months are fast approaching and your vehicle’s air conditioning system will soon be put to the test.

Many of us know what it’s like to jump into a stuffy car and crank up the air conditioning for relief, only to find ourselves hit with more hot air. Driving your car in the summer heat with an air conditioner that isn’t blowing cold is no fun!

The solution? Give your system a summer checkup before the hot weather hits!

“Most people think an air conditioning system contains water, but it doesn’t, it contains an inert gas,” says Allan Koehl, service manager at Canadian Tire Salmon Arm. “The misconception is that when your system isn’t working it’s because it’s evaporated, but it can’t – it’s a closed system.”

Whether you’re driving a new vehicle or a vintage vehicle, maintaining regular preventative maintenance is essential to keeping your vehicle in top condition – and that includes your air conditioning system.

“When your system is blowing hot, the first thing we do is check for leaks. Nine times out of 10 there’s a small or big leak, either in the hard lines or in the compressor,” says Koehl.

Using up-to-date equipment, their expert, licensed technicians will run tests to make sure your air conditioning system is working properly, then flush gas and oil from the system, check and repair leaks, and recharge the system. system.

Yesterday, a vintage Ford pickup truck was stolen from Kamloops Golf & Country Club, but it wasn’t long before several community members helped owners and police find it.

It was around 4:00 p.m. on June 10 when the owner finished a round of golf and noticed that the vehicle was not where he had parked it.

Jami-Lynn Delorme, the owner’s daughter-in-law, posted photos of the missing vehicle on Facebook, which were shared widely among local groups.

“It’s her baby,” she said. “He doesn’t drive it in the winter.”

Thanks to attentive members of the public who had noticed the truck in the city, she was able to know where it was and when.

Eventually, a woman from Cache Creek, which is about 80 kilometers west of Kamloops on Highway 1, contacted Delorme to say the truck had been spotted on her property and its two occupants were attempting to steal oil. ‘essence.

Delorme said police responded and were able to recover the truck near the historic Hat Creek Ranch.

Her stepfather was asked if he wanted to press charges, so she assumes that arrests have been made.

The truck appears to still be in good condition, aside from minor damage to the gas cap, she said, but it has not been returned for a full inspection.

“I’m really, really grateful,” she said. “I’m grateful to everyone who opened their eyes, grateful that my stepfather got it back.”

Seeing so many strangers come together online to help Delorme find the truck gave him a strong sense of community. She assumes that the police would have eventually recovered the truck on their own, but believes it happened much faster thanks to the efforts of concerned citizens.

“We don’t even live in town, but everyone came together for us.”

An email to the Kamloops RCMP was not answered before publication.
