Today was like car show day, tomorrow bright and early the Tour begins leaving out of Cleveland at 9am and after stopping along the way for a light lunch it will arrive in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Because of work and needing to spend time on my '60 I have decided to not do the whole tour, so here is the first day and I will post tomorrows results as well....enjoy...my web page has all the photos I took today here is a sampling----->

of course have to start it off with my '64

and then I saw this car...I almost freaked out as those who have been following the build of my '60 will recognize that this car is real close to how mine will end up...there are differences and I was glad to see that three will be....but I went crazy taking a lot of photos of this car. Upon close inspection I was glad to see that they too were challenged by the final position of the front bumpers relative to the wheel opening. This was still a sweet car.

The front wheels are 19" and the rears are 20" with 255R35X20 tires

I saw that "63 Split" that you are talking about.
When you were pulling out today, did you see a guy sitting on the roadside on his motorcycle? That was me!
only people I saw when I was pulling out of the IX center lot was a guy and his gal both taking lots of photos....didn't see ya...sorry....I really don't look at cycles unless of course there is a woman on it...haha

firstgear, where is your site


I don't have an Ohio "63 SPLIT" plate on my list. Not saying that it does not exist. Where is this one from?

That split has Ohio plates, from county 18. I coiuldn't find a table listing the county numbers to tie it to a county name. It has collector plates that are vanity, which means that he needs to pay yearly for the vanity plate, but that is all. Collector plates in Ohio are a one time buy having a plate life of about 25 years unless you add vanity stuff to it then you have to pay the vanity fee yearly.

I have no clue what this guy did, but the officer just pulled him over and I don't think it was about how cool his car was....

18 is Cuyahoga (Cleve.)

Do they issue the same reading on a variety of plate types?
Some states issue the same reading on a car, a truck and a bike.
