Becky and I are dedicating all our HCCA Sites to Jack and Grace McQuown. Jack passed away last year 2005 and is sorely missed. He was a mainstay in the national and local club. He and Grace served in every office possible over the years. He also restored many of our cars, motors, antique gas pumps and was always there to help with info for anyone that contacted him. You will find many photos of Jack and Grace on our pages and tours recorded here. Grace is still helping out with HCCA projects.
Below is the World Record Holding Stevens-Duryea! Belonging to Tom & Jan Gandy! This car holds the worlds record for going the shortest distance off the trailer. It is really a wonderful car! It was fixed shortly and toured beautifully on our last tour up the Feather River Canyon!

The Official HCCA National Web Site- Web Master Brad Balduff Does a Great Job!
The Gazette Editors HCCA Page - by John C. Meyer III - National info on the club & events. Very nicely done! John is also the editor of the HCCA Gazette & one of the top 3 editors of the finest club publications in the world due mostly to the personal sacrifice of these 3 individuals! ... The other 2 being Richard Quinn of the Antique Studebaker Club (The ASC Review) & Beverly Kimes of the Classic Car Club of America (The Bulletin) ... I just want to say my websites pale in comparision to the years & years these people have dedicated to the car hobby. We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
Here below is a photograph of John and his wife Pat, and the text he sent out with the mail bag.
The search is over. Pat and I wanted to get a horseless carriage that had been well loved. She also thought having something large enough to carry my photography gear was necessary. Finding one that would fit in the garage next to our Model T Ford roadster/pickup was important, too.
We believe that this 1906 Reo 2-cyl fits the bill. Dean Spencer purchased it in 1955 from the original owner. During the 16 years Merle Johnson owned it, he put on a new top and had it reupholstered. Once we get it up and running, there's a chance we'll have it pinstriped but that's all. It's a driver. -- John C. Meyer III
