Just an FYI if anyone will be going to Hershey PA for the AACA meet.  The wife and I will be at Hershey on Wednesday & Thursday and it would be great to say hi to anyone searching the swap meet from this forum.  If you are attending and want to meet up, send me an email at chetbrz@aol.com

Frank:

We were pretty lucky compared to most...since the storm moved somewhat further west, we just had the wind/wind gusts and a lot of rain.  No flooding, but didn't expect that since we're not in a flood zone.  Other parts of the Jacksonville area had more damage and flooding.

I lost 20 shingles off my roof, which I've already replaced/repaired myself.  Of course, the cars were fine  :D

Thanks for asking...

Ted

Thanks for the pictures.  I wish I had brackets like yours it would have made my work a little easier.  The brackets I have are different but appear to be very old.  The hinge pillar bracket is sitting on top of the front cowl bracket.

Ted,
I received this unsigned email today from Floyd Carlstrom's son or daughter:
"Thank you for contacting my dad.  Unfortunately he had an accident and is now in a nursing home.  It looks like he won't be returning home at this time.  I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused."

Thanks John & Tom,

I have a couple of these Trico motors.  The motor that was on my car is much different and I believe it also was a Trico.  I sent a picture to Ficken Wiper Service and he said he wouldn't touch it and couldn't guarantee a repair.   

Unfortunately at the moment I don't know where I put the motor.  I reinstalled the tubing for the vacuum motor and ran two wires up the passenger side door frame to the roof so my immediate issue is resolved.  Installing the actual motor is many months from now.  When I get back to this or when I find my old motor I'll post a picture.  The one that was on my car was a rectangular box.
