GAP and BEYOND

Our 2013 annual Lancaster trip was certainly the best yet, featuring three totally different activities: visits to Amish craftsmen, visits to two museums, and the final

Renninger’s car show.

And, everywhere we turned,

there was food to eat.

We left Friday morning from the Creamery 4H Center with 14 cars, and picked up four more along the way. Staying off major highways, the back roads of Chester County were found to be all twists and turns, hills and woods, and lots of stop signs. And then, as we crossed the county line into Lancaster County, the vistas opened up, with just- greening farm fields, horse plow teams and

lots of Amish buggies.

After a rest break in Gap, our first

visit was to the Petersheim family in Nickel Mine. Chris Sr. is an upholsterer who specializes in leather work for both horse and horseless carriages. He and his family

greeted us and showed us around his shop. We saw both a very early car getting a new leather interior as

well as a very fancy buggy being restored.

Chris uses an

air-driven 1901 Singer sewing machine with a six-foot arm, allowing him to sew huge pieces of leather. We

even rode in his pneumatically-driven elevator which he uses to bring vehicles to the second floor of his shop. (From his shop second floor we watched the Purple

Martins going into and out of his Purple Martin houses he normally has between 60 and 100 mating pairs). We then visited Chris Jr.’s Amish buggy manufacturing shop. They build two new buggies a week, using some assemblies they build from scratch and others obtained from other Amish craftsmen. We watched a frame being assembled as well as wheels being built. Every Wednesday the women of the family get together and

upholster the interiors of the week’s production. The Petersheims treated us like old friends, answering our every question it was a very interesting and fun visit. Next stop was lunch at a nearby Amish restaurant, the Hometown Kitchen. Good food and memorable

conversation: ‘What kind of car do you drive?’, to which

our Amish waitress replied, ‘I don’t drive a car, I drive a

buggy’.

After lunch we drove to the Cattail Foundry,

operated by the King family. We watched sand molds being prepared for John Deere tractor parts as well as molds for treadle sewing machine parts. The complete casting process was described as we toured the furnace. And then what we saw in the barn was just- cast pieces for a new steam tractor. Wow a great visit. Then it

was off to the Witmers’ in New Holland. The Witmer

men run a wood-wheel manufacturing shop, providing specialty-sized wood wheels: they are the largest supplier of wood cannon wheels in the world. We were again taken through the whole manufacturing process (all air-operated tools), from hundreds of sizes of spokes and fellows to the finished rubber or steel-wrapped wheels. Emma Witmer operates a quilt shop in front of the wheel shop. She supplies the designs (many her own) and fabrics to a large number of local Amish women who work on the quilts at home between other

chores.

The results are spectacular and certainly

raised the interest of our group. Next stop was Shady

Lane Wagons, essentially a used buggy lot, owned by Weaver Martin. We saw all kinds of buggies and sleighs, many in gorgeous condition and the prices appeared to

be quite reasonable. And then it was time for dinner at

Yoder’s in New Holland, as though any of us could

possibly be hungry. After dinner we stopped at the

Centerville Bulk Food store, an Amish food store. Folks stocked up on spices, cheese and chocolate, among other items, at reasonable prices. We then drove to our motel in Smoketown, capping a long and very busy day.

Saturday we awoke to another perfect day, breakfasting at the Bird-in-Hand Restaurant, then made our way through two covered bridges to Ephrata where we visited the Ephrata Cloister, a religious group doomed to dwindle from the very beginning: a celibate society where the men and women were kept separate. Touring their village with a knowledgeable guide, we saw both original and restored buildings and gained impressions of daily life in this very disciplined society. Their bed pillows were the toughest part pine boards. Following lunch at the nearby Ephrata Diner, we visited the Seiverling Museum, a privately owned pedal-car museum, filled with 140 pedal cars. Some of the cars are old and some reproductions, all in beautiful condition, and they come from countries all over the world. Then it was off to the Weaver Nut House, where it appeared we could buy almost any type of candy or nut known to

man. And then it was time to eat again! We dined at the Family Cupboard Restaurant in Litiz before heading back

to Smoketown.

Saturday evening was spent on the

front porches of the motel, discussing the memorable events of the past two days.

On Sunday we breakfasted early at a nearby Cracker Barrel Restaurant. Then we drove to the last Renninger’s Model A Car Show , since Dave Renninger

has just sold his inventory.

Bill Haberer (a former

NPMAFC member), has bought the inventory and is in the process of moving the parts to Watsontown, PA,

where he now lives and works.

There were more Model

A’s than ever – we couldn’t count them all; the parking

lot was full. Just about every type of Model A produced

was represented.

There were two vehicles that caught

more attention than most, both being battery operated

electric Model A’s, one belonging to our own club

member, Steven Sensenich.

A great time was had by all 33 of us. The sunny, warm weather made this a perfect weekend. So, what shall we do next spring?

Sadly the last year for the Renninger show at Bird In Hand. Cars for Sale 1931hubcapempire@gmail.com Website www.hubcapempire.com Miscellaneous: Use of year of manufacture license plates. At the April meeting Ed Roth filled us in about the PA DMV website. If you want to register your year of manufacture license number, first you should go to that website, or call them, to make sure the number is not already in use. Numbers were sometimes reused years after initial use years as plates were only good for one year. So there could be a chance that your plate number was used in later years. If that is the case, even if you have two plates, you may not use that number. If not in use, then you take a picture of the plates, and send it off with your application and a $75 fee to register it. You only need 1 plate. 14 " id="pdf-obj-13-2" src="pdf-obj-13-2.jpg">

In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened,

making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the

phrase

...

'Goodnight

, sleep tight'

It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts

...

So in old

England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would

yell at them 'Mind your pints and quarts,

and settle down.'

. .

.

It's where we get the phrase 'mind your P's and Q's'

Many years ago in England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill , they used the whistle to get some service. 'Wet your whistle' is the phrase inspired by this practice.

At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow!

Member updates: none this month

Treasurers Report

Charlie Kerper reported a May opening balance of $2896.92 in the treasury. Note: Charlie announced that he would like to give up the Treasurer’s job starting in November. There is time to think about it now. Please see Charlie or Ed if you are interested.

Old Business

Ed inquired if everyone received their 2013 club roster. Everyone in attendance had received it. Dick

Longcoy brought extras just in case.

Past Activities The April 13 Tech Session had a huge turnout. There were around 37 people and lots of cars. The day was deemed to be a big success. Tech sessions are usually held spring and fall.

The April 26-28 weekend trip to Lancaster was activity and fun filled. There were visits to Amish workshops, a used buggy lot, an Amish store, Ephrata cloister, a pedal-car museum, and then on Sunday, the car show at Renninger’s (which was the last one.) Everyone gave the trip glowing reviews. A detailed write-up about the weekend will appear in the Crossroads. Ed distributed the Supplier List to everyone, and then ran through everything to update the list. A new list will be created and distributed.

Jerry Anderson shared copies of a document titled “Isolating Road Troubles in 10 Minutes” taken from the Summer 2006 Model A Times. He also brought several specialized tools that he created and donated to the club, which will be kept with the club tools at Joe Silverman’s garage.

Howard Kreibel brought copies of a list he created, of parts he carries with him when he participates in a tour. He puts the parts in boxes, and then lists which parts are in which box.

Ray Hollister asked that everyone submit 2 items that would be of interest to them that could be discussed at Tech Talk time at the monthly meetings. Topics will be prioritized by level of interest. Gary Volpe had an issue that he couldn’t get his car in gear, and Tom Hudecki wanted to have a discussion on lining up and reinstalling a hood after taking it off.

Kathy DeHaven announced that she has free tickets to the Reading Phillies game on Friday, May 31 st . The tickets are being distributed by the Penn Suburban Chamber of Commerce and are available through member businesses. Call Kathy at 215-256-6703 if you would like tickets. Game time is at 7:05 PM. Plan to arrive early to get a seat. Seating opens at 6:00 PM. General admission (no assigned seat seating within certain sections).

A motion was made and carried to adjourn the meeting. Next meeting will be Monday, June 3. There are no meetings in July or August.

Minutes prepared by Kathy DeHaven, Secretary
