The Golden Years

Part of our clubs 'rodacomerie' is the concern we have for each others well being.  If you or any other Coachmen or friends are having specific health issues, surgeries, etc. please let us know, and if you'd rather maintain your privacy, we'll respect that too.

As far as we know, everyone is doing well this month. 

Coachmen Car Club Picnic

The Coachmen Car Club Picnic was a big success.  The weather was warm, but bearable.  We had a lot of fans keeping us cool, plus the pavilion was covered and close the river which helped keep thing cooler.

Everyone enjoyed the sandwiches made by P'Sghetti's.  It was a nice change of pace from the usual hot dogs and hamburgers. The side dishes and desserts were exceptional!

Phil and Marge Moise

Classifieds

Dan Hogan, a former member of the Coachmen and one of the founding members, is selling some of his vehicles. 

1)  1932 three window Hi-Boy coupe.  Blue with Mr. Horsepower accents.  454 Chevy mill with Edelbrock street ram air injection. Dual 870 Carter AFB's. Cam etc..Stereo, A/C - Ready to Race - FAST car!

2)  1949 Mercury carson top. Full custom lead sled. WILD paint job, 1st place show winner! Red leather 1966 Caddy interior with all custom gauges and vintage air. You guys have seen this car- took 1st place at the CBC show years ago. 400 turbo tranny and rear end. Have to see motors in both cars to appreciate all the nice chrome work that has been done.

 

3) OK, this is a tough one, but my full custom Springer Softail is going as well. This was the bikers for babies poster bike here in St.Louis in 2004.  COMPLETELY re-done.  In 2004 this bike has only 28xxx mi. And cost over 50k to build!  Have to see it - there's just too much to describe. Old school flamed paint by the Wolfman no screws or rivets showing and even the INSIDES of the fenders are painted.

There is nothing left to chrome that hasn't been done.

You can email Dan Hogan: hogazm@hotmail.com for more information.
