>Pardon my ignorance but, what's a "dash plaque"?
They are those little square/rectangular brass or aluminum or rubbery
magnetic material card-like mementos that sit in the bottom of
registration packets handed out to participants of Corvair
shows. ...except for the Lexington national convention. The dash
and glovebox door on the '67 coupe is covered with them.
For the Lexington show, we substituted a "Visit Kentucky"
refrigerator magnet we picked up in the host motel, made a little
"Sharpie pen" star on Lexington and stuck it on the glove box door to
represent the 2004 convention.
They do tend to multiply after a while, almost like that tooth fungus
thing... I guess "plaque" is an adequate description since they're
spreading across the dash. I have others from other shows in
envelopes which are slated to go on the ragtop's dash after it's
repainted, seeing as how it's been to a show or two itself.
It pains me to consider that the venerable '60 4-door has only been
to *three* Corvair shows and sports no dash plaques. ...been
just about everywhere else though.
