Glad to meet ya!

Hi Matt,

My name is Andy. I live in So. MD, near the Prince George's and Charles County Lines. I have a '87 Elky that have had since March '02, and I used to own a '72 until it was totaled by tractor-trailer. Right now I'm awaiting back surgery do to a work related injury. However there are a few things I wanna do to my Elky as soon as I'm able. First it's due for either a complete motor rebuild or replacement. Then I've got a problem with the rear window leaking as well as some rust developing around the stock rear fender tie down bars. When those projects are done it will be time for a fresh paint job, and I thought about converting the rear brakes to discs. Those projects ought to keep me busy while I'm rehabing. If you would like to chat about any of these projects or just talk drop me a line.

Thanks, 87Last1

Hey Terry, I would agree. The fair grounds was used for the 4-h club for years.If we were lucky they had tractor pulls.Its been a good while since i've been there.There are still some good car clubs in that area. 8)

Hi Matt . . . I am a new member . . just joined about an hour ago. This is my first post. I decided to start with the "locals." I live in Alexandria, VA, but I grew up in Annapolis, MD. I also spent a few years at St. Mary's College in Southern MD, so I guess I've covered some of the same real estate as many of the members in your region.

I do not own an Elky yet, but I will .. oh, yes, I will. I am hooked on 3rd gen and I have been searching for about a month and a half. I've seen a few and I've spoken with a few owners. Looking forward to becoming a true member . .

Punisher . . . I saw a '77 for sale here in NOVA in the Alexandria/Springfield area. It looked rough, but if you're interested I can drive by again and get the phone number. He had $900 posted on the windhshield, but it's been sitting there for a few weeks now so . . .
