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.

2014- Where did it go!! In our hobby of going to car shows or having a classic car it starts with Run to the Sun in Myrtle Beach, SC in March. There is a car show or cruise in after that almost every weekend throughout the year. You can attend a show with a festival with it or a stand alone car show the choice is yours. It was a difficult year for me, I had to trade my ’55 Ford Customline because of medical reasons. The car I have now is a ‘62 Thunderbird and I love it with power steering, automatic and power brakes. Our club had a great year with two shows and membership has grown. We added a Cars & Coffee event (4th Saturday of each month), picked up a new show in Greelyville, SC, club sponsored the Best of Show trophy at the All Ford Car Show her in Sumter (my last show) and had a successful show at VFW Hut in Sumter (thank you David). Thank you to all the club members for a GREAT Year and have a wonderful holiday season.
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 I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
