Colorado Collector Car Council News


Report by Ernie Tangye

The May 5 meeting was held at the Forney Museum. There was no new business and the Cruiz’n Havana program was reviewed. 42 member clubs, 4 individual members, and 4 associate members have renewed memberships. Two new informal clubs were added to the CCCC without dues or assessments — the Cruisen Panthers at Buckley Field and Wicked Car Club in Colorado Springs. Neither club has officers or dues. Guest speaker, Scott Hannum of Pep Boys Speed Shop, is reviving the Speed Shop and performance parts that are a part of the collector car hobby. Stores at 5134 So. Wadsworth, 44th and Wadsworth, and Aurora are the stores participating.
SEMA show in Las Vegas will be November 5th through 8th. CCCC club members will again have the opportunity to attend. Requirements for us are that an individual must be a member of a CCCC club, have an e-mail address, and be a member of SEMA’s Action Network (SEMA/SAN). To apply, notify myself or the secretary of CCCC no later than August 30 for more information. Considerable time was spent covering legislative action. Very little is of concern for collector cars. HB19-1062: approved motor vehicle windows have a minimum level of light. HB19-1207: approved requiring traction control standards for winter conditions. (Tread depth for us.)
HB19-1300: approved VIN inspections performed by a law enforcement officer will now be a $50 charge. SB19-092: Concerning the check engine light as the sole criterion for failure of an emission test has been postponed indefinitely. A bill requiring all vehicles to have California emission standards never made it to the floor.
