E. H. Scott Product Placement at Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival

6/20/2015

Radios are not my only hobby interest. Old cars also make me smile. For that reason my wife and I attended the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival in New Britain, CT today. 

I wore my Scott T-shirt thinking that there might be some fellow radio enthusiasts attending the event. I'm always ready to talk radio.

Well, there was no talk of radio but I did happen to meet the Grand Marshall of the event, Wayne Carini. Most mornings I watch him on TV as he appears in Chasing Classic Cars on Velocity Channel. 

I happened to be at just the right place when Wayne was greeting the public and my wife encouraged me to speak with him. I did and she got the picture, including a bit of unintentional product placement for the "Stradivarius of Radio".

Now that was a good day!

Curious, you have a favorite era of cars that you like?

Scott .... I am partial to the mid-1930's through the mid-1950's. That's pretty broad.

To give you a better idea I currently own a 1941 Buick Roadmaster Touring Sedan, with the OHV straight eight and dual carbs.  In the past I had a 1947 Mercury Woody wagon (flathead 8, 100 HP).

It's difficult for me to focus on one car because I like so many. Lincolns and Cadillacs from the 1940's, Thunderbirds from the 1960's, and station wagons from the 1950's. I am a true car nut!

You can see my Buick and maybe a few pictures of the old Mercury on my website, http://www.idlenot.com .

Just choose Buick from the topic menu on the right.

Family friend, (now dec'd ) restored a 1941 fast back Buick 4 door sedan in a kind of burnt orange color. Had the Delco shortwave optional 1941 radio for it.

David, that shortwave Sonomatic radio is quite rare. It was likely offered because of the war in Europe. One version of the driver's manual sports a script note inside the cover refering the owner to the shortwave instructions.

Nice Ken!   Where can I get some t shirts? I sure would like to have one!

Martin, Kent King sold the shirts as a means to help fund this site. Give him a shout. He may have some more.
