2016 Convention / Auction Featured Radio – 1947 AMC Model 126 Catalin

This is an AMC Model 126 Butterscotch colored Catalin radio from 1947. It is fully restored electronically and plays great!

This same model radio was sold on eBay January 14th 2016 for $710. That radio was unrestored and had a crack along the bottom.

Look for it at our Convention Auction on February 13th!

The 2016 Post Holiday Party was a Success!

Last Saturday over 60 members and their families enjoyed dinner and an auction at the Double Tree Hotel at Hobby Airport. After a delicious buffet dinner, numbers were drawn for over $400 in door prizes including a $100 gift certificate to the Olive Garden Restaurant.  Next up was an auction where over 70 lots were sold. Items included ladies purses, vintage radios and household items. Thanks to all our volunteers for making this a very enjoyable event at a new location. A show of hands by the attendees confirmed that they wish to return to this location again in 2017.
