Millie and I just returned from the National AACA meeting in Philadelphia. I believe every member should attend the national meeting at least once in their lifetime. It is fascinating to see how the association operates and all the wonderful work that is being done to preserve our antique car hobby. It is also a lot of fun. They provide seminars, a trade show and lots of activities in those three days.
Our show year is in full swing. We have our annual judged show, the Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables Biltmore Way Classic Car Show coming up March 4th at Biltmore Way and LeJeune Road in Coral Gables. This is one of my favorite shows because it is a beautiful place to show off our cars, especially with the turn of the century architecture as a background and a street party to boot!
We are also in the planning stages for our annual picnic and a number of other events coming up soon. Check out our website often to stay abreast of the planned events.
We certainly would like to see more of you at our General Membership meetings which are held on the 3rd Thursday of every month at the Red Lobster Restaurant at the Prado Shopping Center located at US 1 and SW 136 Street.
I would like to let you know that the A.A.C.A. South Florida Region has committed to hosting the 2020 National Winter Meet in South Florida. We encourage our members to get involved and help out with your particular talents and making this show a success. Feel free to contact me or any of the board members with your ideas or suggestions and certainly approach us if you would if you would like to volunteer.
See you down the road,
A.A.C.A. South Florida Region
