Greetings and welcome to our site.  We hope that you and yours are staying safe and healthy!

Here we are at the beginning of Fall and the weather is 90 – 100+ degrees.  In fact, the last day of Summer (9/21) it reached 102 degrees.  How do I know… that was the day that three of the Henry’s Helpers came to our house to help install a new timing gear.  It was a great day for learning, camaraderie and working on our car.  Three weeks prior to that two of Henry’s Helpers were here to correct an exhaust leak.  However, they also installed a new carburetor, new fuel filter, adjusted the steering box and corrected the front-end alignment.  On that day I asked about a noise in the engine… both Helpers said it was the Timing Gear.  The inspection cover was removed and there were only three teeth in original condition.  A big Thank You to the Henry's Helpers!

If you get a call from the Election Committee for a position on next year’s Board Of Directors, please give a Board position a consideration.  It is the Membership that keeps our club running.

As Los Angeles County’s Covid-19 numbers remain elevated, Diamond Tread’s Board of Directors continues to be cautious of the virus.  The Board made a decision in May to initiate the monthly Board/General meetings and follow the current CDC Covid-19 guidelines.   At this time, the monthly meetings are being held outdoors.  The October 13th meeting will start at 4:00pm and be held at:

     San Martin Park in the 5700 block of Hardwick Lakewood.

We care about you and want to see you on the road again soon!  Stay Safe!
