President Manny Garcia with his 1968 Mercury Cougar coupe Dan Gurney Special
I hope everyone made it back from Hersey all right and enjoyed the show. While the show season is ending for everybody up North, here in South Florida we are getting ready to kick into high gear! It may be close to the end of the year, but our club still has lots of activities to help us enjoy our cars and each other’s company.
As I write this message, Memory Lane is wrapping up; what a great venue to showcase our cars and our club. I want to thank Mel Mann, Ira Shapiro, Bob Squier, and Philip Williams for their tireless efforts for which this event is possible. I would also like to thank the car owners and volunteers who dedicated their time to bring and watch the cars during the show.
Next up is CARS in the GARDEN on Sunday, October 28th at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156, followed by the progressive lunch on November 11th and our last show of the year. If you have a pre-1960’s vehicle, please send in your application and come join us at another great event, the DEERING ESTATE VINTAGE AUTO SHOW for 1959 OR OLDER ORIGINAL/RESTORED ANTIQUES ONLY on Sunday, November 18, 2018, Deering Estate, 16701 SW 72 Ave, Palmetto Bay, FL 33157.
Be sure to attend the November 15th General Membership Meeting so you can exercise your right to vote for the slate of officers and directors who will lead your club next year. Nominations will remain open until the meeting of November 15th. We also have our year-end Holiday party coming up in December. Watch our website calendar for details. We hope to see you at these events and our membership meetings. So, keep those batteries charged and gas tanks full!
See you down the road!
Manny Garcia, President
