So what is life without a challenge or two? Our mid June Cruise nights have been just that as rain threatened keeping the majority of participant’s cars garaged. Well with my old driver type Studebakers, if it rains, it means they got washed. In any event, I am sure some of the gorgeous cars you will see in the newsletter pictures are from the nights in question. The nights in question ended up being ok.
Now as the days roll by we are always made to decide on something. Just review the activities we list in the newsletter and figure out which one you can attend. There is no question many of our members find and attend events the rest of us don't see. So I am asking you give us a short report to share what you found. Maybe even share a vacation find along the way be it a car for sale along a road or a small local museum. Pictures? While traveling I recall stopping in and seeing cars not dusted and prime BUT interesting. Can't share more as all I recall is a dark cramped facility full of cars. What you find is important to someone. Share please!
For those who make our meetings, you know I was able to get a few boxes of old car manuals and a few books. At the meeting it was decided we would see if folks found something of interest, they would donate all of $2 per copy. Now you will find all of them loaded in the back of my 62 Studebaker Pickup. Ultimately if no interest is found they will be recycled. I hope we can use a bunch at the July 3 Grandparent/Grandkids/Kids Night. We do want to stimulate interest in our cars to keep them on the road long after we are gone.
Special events for July includes our annual food bank collection where only car club vehicles are included at the concert night. We will use Hagerty bags again to stimulate donations. For August - Camp Quality - last year we had 59 cars and needed 80. We’ll keep you posted. Happy
