President’s Message

President  Manny Garcia with his 1968 Mercury Cougar coupe Dan Gurney Special

July – August  2019

For those of you who missed our annual picnic, you missed out on some good food and a lot of comradery.  We went back to the basics with our own chefs doing all the grilling.  Then with all the side dishes and desserts brought by our members, there were no food complaints, only compliments.  Even the weather cooperated with us.

Speaking of the weather, we are now in full summer mode- mid 90’s, high humidity, and frequent thundershowers; all the reason to keep from driving our beloved antiques. Even though our show year is on hiatus, it doesn’t have to be the end of your fun with the hobby. Now is the time to plan and/or execute any repairs, maintenance or starting that restoration you have been putting off. Nowadays, you may have to wait longer to find the parts you need.

Join us for the club’s monthly meeting at La Fragua every third Thursday at 7:30 pm and a dinner option suggestion at 6:00 pm. We have great speakers every month, fellowship with our friends and good food. Come join us and make a difference or be the difference!

I would really like to hear from you, our membership! In the upcoming months our Nomination Committee will be meeting, seeking additional leadership for our board. What else can your board do to improve the membership experience? Any ideas, suggestions or constructive criticism is welcome.

We are planning for Cars in the Garden on October 27th, Memory Lane November 1-10, the Dearing Estate show on November 3rd. Information about entering your antique will be forthcoming.

See you down the road…all eyes on the 2020 National Winter Meet of February 28-29!

Thank you,

Manny Garcia, President
A.A.C.A. South Florida
