Did you know?
There are several of our club members who have, what shall I say...."Alter-Personas" or different personalities....... Let's give them ficticious names....Ken, Harlan, Bill, Terry, Philip or something like Wayne. There could be others. These guys, having nothing better to do except troll for cars on the internet (Don't know why young Zack is not a member of this group...oh yeah, he has a real job, the others are retired and all their classics are running well. 

Anyway, let me continue here.....these rumored  cRc members will relocate cars, or mostly trucks for a regional dealer. Trucks tend to be brand new oil field trucks that are delivered to Midland, Texas or in this case the wilds of North Dakota. Weather? Ahh, not an issue as shown in the youtube below....we are calling it, "cRc ICE ROAD TRUCKERS...like the mail, the cRc trucks must get through. Enjoy the video.

 Is that a crash helmet that one of our members is wearing in the top left hand of the youtube page? Surely not, Shirley!


Posted Christmas day - while Santa was making his rounds, Harlan was also. He sent over this remarkable youtube of the Barn find guy. They are still out there (young Zack) so go bring 'em back into the club. This is a longer video than we normally post...but if you have a half hour to spare.......well? What are you waiting for.

Posted July 16 by Harlan Butler..the Goodwood Road and Racing Festival of Speed is an exciting race in the U.K.  There is a somewhat live blogspot that brings this race to you. If you have a few minutes to spare, click below:

Editor's note: The Cimarron Cruisers website is a great source for car show information, particularly from OKC north. They also have some interesting articles, like this one about cRc member Ray Langley's 1955 Ford Crown Victoria. Below is the article, and at the bottom of the article is the link to their website. 

The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers' Car Club proudly features, great classic vehicles, which belong to the good folks of Oklahoma.

The Great Oklahoma Classic for March 2018 belongs to Raymond and Betty Langley of Newalla Oklahoma. They are charter members of a wonderful Oklahoma Car Club known as the Canadian River Cruisers.

We were able to visit with Ray about his Classic Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria at the Annual Central Tech Auto Show, held yearly in Drumright Oklahoma along with the Central Technology Center’s Annual Open House.

 The work soon began to bring the Fairlane Crown Victoria back to better than new condition. 

Hey gang, this 1950's glimpse of the future lets us know that self driving cars are coming sooner rather than later.

The excellent paint and body work on the Ford Classic was done by Susan Miller of Pink Oklahoma. As you can this classic Fairlane is straight!

Ray and Betty’s son, James, did the rebuild on the Ford 272 cubic inch V8. The Ford specs on the 272 show 162 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.The 272 V8 is coupled to a three speed standard transmission with column shift.


Ray completed the interior himself by using an interior kit from LeBaron Bonney Custom Auto Interiors. As you can see, the interior is better than when it left Ford.

The Classic Ford rides on fifteen inch painted blue wheels with the original looking Ford hub caps and of course classic wide white wall tires.

Ray cleaned and polished all of the stainless steel parts, which he brought back to like new condition.
The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers sincerely appreciate Raymond and Betty Langley of Newalla Oklahoma for sharing their 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria as our Great Oklahoma Classic for March 2018!
That was back in 1956...look at where google's technology is in 2017.

The electric motorcycles are coming!

Infiniti develops new variable compression ratio engine:

This guy describes it pretty well, as I watched the Factory Video which left me puzzled.
