Sunday October 1st AACA Car Show, Lawrence Ks
This year’s favored marque was Chevrolet, and plenty of bow-tie aficionados showed up to exhibit their cars and trucks. George C. of Lawrence took home the best of show with his beautifully restored 1926 Model K coupe. In the truck dept., Tom Keegan won 2nd place for his 1953 1/2 ton pup, while Norm, Fred K., and Tom Turley each won en their respective classes. Thanks once again to the AACA Lawrence region for hosting the event. Remember to attend the AACAs May swap meet at the Douglas Co. Fairgrounds–proceeds from that event pay for the October show.
President’s Cookout Well-Attended
Annual Picnic Features Distinguished Guests
Attendees at our annual picnic held Saturday July 8th at Kill Creek Park enjoyed fine weather at breezy Shelter #2. The lakeside venue kept Club Members cool as they enjoyed a fine assortment of grilled meats, sides, and desserts. Thanks to Doug R. and the fine folks at Earp Distribution for providing the hamburgers and chicken, and thanks to Steve and Karen C. for rounding up the beverages. Guests at the picnic included Steven and Michael Rau, sons of John Rau. Steven is a student at JCCC, and Michael is studying violin in New York.
Past CLC President Glenn Brown and his wife Valerie also made an appearance at the picnic. Glenn and Valerie traveled to KC from Chicago to join up with Marsha Redman and visit hotels interested in hosting the 2020 Grand National. Glenn and Valerie were able to answer many questions that members had concerning the event, and the national club.
Spring Drive Saturday June 10th
Twenty-seven Club members and guests participated in this year’s Spring Drive. Beautiful weather reigned supreme as we drove the northland. Our stops at a winery, and distillery proved educational, and our lunch was devoured! Check out the Activities page of this website for more pics, and a complete wrap up.
Thanks to All who Participated in the Spring Tune Up and Art Extravaganza at Hyde Park Service and Studio 39
Attendees at this year’s Spring Tune Up Saturday April 8th at Hyde Park Service, reveled in the opportunity to get their Classic Caddies into a professional car repair shop, and get their hands dirty. Oil, filters, fan belts, light bulb, and axle grease flew around the shop as Club members swung their wrenches. Professional mechanics, John Hoagland, Tom Keegan, and James Duyck helped with the repairs, but most owners chose to, at least, begin servicing their cars themselves. Coffee and donuts provided by the Club fueled the activities.
Those members not too interested in car repair visited with Lynn and Meredith at Studio 39. Lynn reported a great turn out, with some excellent artistic works completed. Good to know folks weren’t in it just for the Mimosas and Snacks. Check out the Activities page of this website for more pics, and a complete wrap up.
Store Your Car
Of note: Your Classic Ride has space available to store your vehicle. It is an interesting garage which offers 24/365 access to your car, and has a live-in caretaker. You may also bring your tools, and use the facility’s lift to work on your vehicle. All this for the modest sum of $200 per month.
