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 !!!!!! It is here and nothing we can do about it. Last year (2013) was an eventful one for me and the club; new members, successful car shows/cruise-ins, new calender for 2014 printed, new officers elected in the club, Facebook hit 100 likes, Facebook auto parts page, my '55 still runs, will be a granddaddy in 2014 and a new replaced improved left shoulder (hopefully). Our club will soon make new flyers and put the trophies together for the upcoming shows we host; April 12th Turbeville Puddin' Swamp Festival and May 24th Sumter Spring Blast (Swan Lake Iris Gardens) show. Our cruise-ins will still happen the second Saturday of each month - check out our Facebook and web page for information. One last thing, we will have our Head Turnerz Club Poker Run February 8th here in Sumter, SC for everyone to participate (we will have prizes). SHIFT AT RED LINE AND HOLD ON !!
OF THE MONTH
If you are building/rebuilding an engine and it’s to be done over a period of time, before and after installing the rods and pistons be sure to line the cylinder walls with “motor honey” or another type of heavy lubricant that will stay on the walls for an extended period of time. This will help to ward off corrosion that may begin due to exposure to the air without being run. I also recommend keeping the engine covered with a plastic sheet to ensure dust and grit does not make its way into the engine prior to or after the installation of the heads. A clean engine is a healthy, longer lasting engine. Utilizing a good top quality engine assembly lube is worth the money also, spend the few extra bucks and just do it! You spend hard earned money to have a good dependable engine in your hot rod, do it right and take the time to protect it. It will then treat you with the same love you showed it.
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee; he shall never suffer the righteous to bge moved.
