Obama proposals include retirement plan changes

The election is over and the message is clear â€" the economy is priority one. The big question now is how some of President-elect Barack Obama’s campaign proposals will affect retirees and workers with 401(k) and other retirement accounts. Looking at them a bit closer may reveal some clues.

AUTO BRIEF

You can always expect a lot of Fords at the yearly show put on by the Low Country Mustang Club.

Car Talk

Q. My neighbor is an elderly gent with fairly advanced Alzheimer’s disease. His wife was called out of town and left both of their cars disabled (disconnected the batteries, probably) so he wouldn’t drive off on his own. Well, he did try to drive off on his own, and the cars failed to start. So he walked to a mechanic on the corner and asked for help. The next thing you know, an Escort with 90,000 miles and a Taurus with 23,000 miles are running, and are driven off to the mechanic. Later that afternoon, my neighbor showed me four pages of computer-printed estimates (printed on the back of old deli menus, by the way) totaling $4,700 to fix his cars.

CAR SHOW CALENDAR

Today Coastal Carolina Corvette Club will present the “Homes for the Holidays” Open Car, Bike & Truck Show, sponsored by Marathon Chevrolet of Summerville. The show will be 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Registration, which is $10 per vehicle, will begin at 11 a.m. at Marathon Chevrolet on Main Street in Summerville.

Recent gathering in Charleston area brings together vintage Model A Fords

Pardon the pun, but there was a rare local meeting last month: fans of the Model A â€" and model tea. The gathering, actually, involved a group of Model A Fords from three states. They converged on the Charleston area Oct. 25 for drives, dining and tours. Notably, the vintage cars and their owners paraded to Charleston Tea Plantation on Wadmalaw Island for a visit and photos.
