A message from our President:  

 Working every other weekend makes it impossible for me to get to
many car shows. But on October 14, Bill and Ralph and I headed to Trenton for a show hosted by the North Florida Rod and Custom Car Club. There were 90 vehicles from originals to street rods that took part. Aside from the weather being perfect there were many cars I had not seen before. One of my favorites was a 1957 T-Bird, of course red, that was a sweet car. I was very  impressed with this club and how well they worked together and also made all the trophies for the show. You
could tell they spent a lot of time making them. Our club had a winner; “Ralph Towner” won a trophy for top 15 with his Pontiac Star Chief. The show happened to be right next to “Huegenics” a sheet metal fabrication restorations and collision repair business. I met
owner Chris Dobbs and after seeing some of the vehicles he’s worked on I invited him to speak to us at our November meeting. Please don’t miss it and bring your questions for him. It should be a great meeting.
 On a sadder note it also is with our deepest sympathies that we have lost a long time member Jack Gordon who passed away on October 7. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley Gordon andtheir family.
 The holidays are almost upon us. Don’t forget our Club Christmas Party has been changed to Tuesday, December 5th. 

May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
