Fall General Membership Meeting
Tam O’ Shanter Inn
This Fall General Meeting selected the Tam O’ Shanter Inn for a location, which is the same location as used in the Spring. Parking is isolated and perfect for Tire Kickin’ and the meal served is “over the top”. To further commemorate this day, and the existence of So. Cal. SACC Chapter, Noland Adams was invited to speak as was done at the kick-off of our first meeting two + years ago.Several Items on this years Business Agenda were:

|Noland presented a discussion on GM Corvette Restoration Parts and the past history of his involvement with legalizing the use of the word Corvette with company Logo’s, i.e. Corvette Central, Mid-America Corvette and others. There was also a short discussion on restoration part quality and how many companies rely on foreign manufacture of parts. Essentially it is Buyer Beware.
