We are temporarily changing the day of our board meeting from Wednesday to Tuesday for the summer months of June through September. This will make it easier for members to attend the many cruise nights and shows over the summer.
Fred Smith Collector Car Dealership show Wakefield RI. Good show with 30 cars but tight space with the other old cars for sale.
Sturbridge Village car show in MA for pre 1930’s cars. Charlie Nash reported he enjoyed this show and would attend it again.
RI Street Rod assn. show at Washington Co fairgrounds RI. More cars than at past shows with about seven of our members attending
Klingberg CT show. We had nine members attend this show which just gets better every year with many rare old cars.. Dave Calabrese took home the Ron Poupart award. Next year’s plan is to have five separate shows on different days. Each show would have a different focus with a different decade or focus for each show. Stay tuned.
