Happy New Year to all my car enthusiast friends. May 2019 bring you many blessings, peace and health. We had a fantastic Holiday season and an amazing holiday party. If you didn’t attend, you missed a great party with fantastic food. We had our now famous gift exchange and we recognized this year’s Most Valuable Member, Millie Garcia. Thank you for all you do for the club. Millie put the Holiday party together for us, directed all the club’s social events this year and put up with me; that alone deserves a trophy!
Now on to one of my personal favorite club events, ”Art Deco Weekend”, held on Miami Beach in the historic Art Deco District on January 19-20. Two days of car and shopping fun with VIP parking right on Ocean Drive! Don’t miss it!
Then, following one and one half months later, the Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables Biltmore Way Classic Car Show takes place on Sunday, March 3rd. This is our annual judged show.
We are now a year away from our National Meet. We are full steam ahead with the preparations and invite you to come and join us at our monthly meetings as we start to piece together this incredible event. Every one of you is a valuable piece of that puzzle.
So, stick with your New Year’s resolutions and get out and drive your cars! Looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
See you down the road.
Manny Garcia, President
