Priceless Photos!

Posted: April 20, 2016 in Club Meetings

Priceless photos…that’s what we want to say about these!

Also a note to encourage more youngsters, teens and adults to look under the engine and become car enthusiasts. What a beautiful child and the engine is pretty awesome too!


Hello First Chapter,

I hope everyone is doing well. We had engine baya lot of fun at the last meeting with our garage tour. A big thank you goes out to Brent and Phil for allowing us to tour their shops! Also, thank you to Lonny at East Coast Muscle Cars for giving us the grand tour.

Afterwards, we met at Wayne’s for some delicious subs and pastries.

Next on the list of events will be the club picnic on April 10. The event will be held at my house in Shrewsbury. This will be a pot luck picnic. Please let me know if you plan to attend and what you plan to bring. Also, please bring a chair. I will be supplying hot dogs and hamburgers, so I would like to know who is going to attend by the first week of April, so that I can stock up on food.

Hope to see you soon,

2016 New President Welcome

Posted: February 5, 2016 in Club Meetings

Dear NNN 1st Chapter Members:

I look forward to meeting each of you and spending time together this year.

Our first task of the New Year is to encourage all members to recruit a few new members over the next couple of months.

Please use the new mem form and get them back into Bret. His contact information is at the bottom of the form.  We hope to welcome new members soon into our club and to send them our current newsletter.

Also attached is the flyer for the novasbeach in May. Please hand them out. We would like to see many of us attend. It will be a long one day but we need to show our club is alive and growing!

Finally check out our flyer for the first garage tour in 2016.

Please plan to attend, bring a friend or potential new member and share the flyer.

Thanks for your support!

Brent “Red”


2015 President’s Report!

Posted: February 6, 2015 in Club Meetings

President’s Report by Al “Scooter” Kuhn

DSC08249Happy New Year everyone!

For those who did not make our Christmas party/meeting, we had a great time and shared lots of news!

And part of my news is that I’ll be stepping down as your President after the end of this year. Sarah and I are happily expecting baby number two with perfect timing in July. With many responsibilities at hand, I’m asking every club member to please step up and make this club a group effort.

Please think about how you can support the club with your talents and consider officer positions that will be open.  Without leadership and member support, our historic club will fail.  And to everyone that has always been involved, thank you.

So, what about this year?  More “How To” tech seminars! YEA!

nova32Marlyn and I share a goal that many of you have requested, more “How To” tech seminars.

With that in mind, our next meeting will be learning all about an AC system.  Please join us on Sunday, March 22 at Marlyn & Kim Runk’s home, 50 Guernsey Road, Biglerville PA 17307 phone 717-677-4840.

Secretary’s Report:

The club Holiday party/meeting was held, Saturday Jan. 17 at the Bushey’s home.

Those in attendance were; Al & Karen Kuhn, Dave & Liz Brinton, Courtney Johnson, Paul Leiphart, Paige Mahr, Russ Richards, Brent & Jen Taylor & family, Dave & Agnes, Marlyn & Kim Runk, Dave Busler, Wayne & Shirley Bushey, and Scooter Kuhn and son.

First Chapter would like to thank Wayne & Shirley for hosting the club party at their home, plenty of good food and fellowship.

Other news, our First Chapter has voted to sponsor a trophy for the Nova Nationals in Dover.

Annual Chapter Dues Are Now Payable!!!

 Next Chapter Meeting Schedule:

How to tech concerning AC for the older cars will be demonstrated.

In case you missed the date above, the next Club meeting will be held, Sunday, March 22 at Marlyn & Kim Runk’s home, 50 Guernsey Road, Biglerville PA 17307 phone 717-677-4840.

DSC08249Happy Baby News!

First, and most importantly, our entire 1st chapter network sends  a big congratulations to Scooter and his wife on the birth of their child — a beautiful little boy. Also congrats to Karen and Al Kuhn who will,  no doubt,  be loving and fabulous grandparents. We hope to bring you more news of this little bundle of joy and probably the youngest member of our York Nova Chapter,  so stay tuned.

In this chapter report, we begin by saying goodbye and so long to “old man winter.” Good riddance! How can we expect our Nova’s and hotrods to come out of the garage with all this snow.  So, let’s band together and no more cold and gloom and wish spring to appear and stay for a long while.

A quick recap of our 2014 goals are as follows:

  • timely communication – by email, postal mail, calls to Scooter and of course checking this blog and our Facebook site.
  • have more fun, car cruises, tech seminars and social gatherings like mini-golf, local tours, sprint car racing, go-carts.  Please do tell us what’s on your mind. You can comment on this blog or share your ideas for events with us.
  • Support for Nationals, GM Nationals and other local shows and group events to extend our network, share knowledge and learn from each other.
  • event calendar with list of car shows and gatherings for summer and fall  2014.
  • building our network of new members

Holiday Party & Welcome New Members!

Speaking of new members, our annual holiday party was held on Sunday, January 26 at the Bushey’s home, and we thank them for always such a great party! Twenty-three members attended.  There was great food and conversation and some new members.  Bret Mohr from York and Brent and Jennifer Taylor from Quarryville joined us.  Welcome!

DSC08239Hot New Co-Secretarys in Office

Marlyn and Kimberly Runk have thrown their hat into the ring to be co-secretarys of the chapter.  Yea!  Thank you.

T-Shirts Redesigned with New Logo

Our re-designed logo looks great on the new T-shirts.  We pre-ordered 30 and extra shirts can be ordered for $10.50. Choose either black or white.  Also hoodies and polo shirts are available for under $25.00.  We are considering vinyl stickers with our logo.


This year’s nationals will be in Columbus, Ohio in July, 2014.  So far, Wayne has a tour in place to Right Stuff.  He is working on a tour of Jegs and a basket tour in Dresden (is that for the ladies?) Also drag racing was mentioned as a consideration.  Wayne will keep us posted on his progress.  Registration forms can be found in your Nova Times Magazine.  If you don’t get it this publication, visit Nova Parts website from NNN.
