Spring is Just Around the Corner, I Promise!
Yeah, it’s been a long cold winter, complete with messy snow storms, and endless gray days. There has hardly been a day descent enough to drive the old Classic Cads around the block–let alone catch up on routine maintenance. All that is about to change when we gather 8am Saturday April 13th at Hyde Park Auto Service 100 E. 39th Street KCMO for our annual Spring Tune Up. If you haven’t been, this is your opportunity to get up close and personal with the inner workings of your Cadillac. All the equipment of a working garage will be at your disposal, including professional mechanics to assist you–should you need it. So, go find those boxes of parts you ordered during the last snow storm. We will help you put them on, and make sure your Caddy is in perfect shape for the many miles we have planned for it this year. Coffee and donuts provided by the Club.
If you are not quite interested in getting your hands dirty, how about spreading around some paint with Lynn and Meredith? As has been the case for the last several years, club members are invited to create their own work of art at Lynn’s “Studio 39,” which is also located at Hyde Park Service. Lynn and Meredith have all the paints, supplies, fancy snacks and Mimosas to help you get in the mood, and complete your mini masterpiece. So whether you prefer carburetors or canvasses, we’d love to see you. This has become one of the Club’s better-attended events.
Road Trip! McPherson Kansas May 3, 4 2019
Many of you may be aware of the 4-year automotive restoration degree program offered at McPherson College. The program is internationally known, and is supported by Mercedes Benz, and Jay Leno among others. Each May the students host a car-show weekend which incl
udes a cruise night Friday May 3rd on the main drag of McPherson. The next day, Saturday May 4th the school invites the public to show off their cars at a judged car show on the campus. At this time visitors may tour the restoration shop. The cruise night is open to everyone, but if you wish to have your car on display Saturday, you must pre-register. Click on the link below to register on line for $15.
McPherson is 200 miles from Kansas City, so this will be an overnight event. I suggest those who wish to travel together to leave at 9am Friday. I have some suggestions for lodging and other activities.The organizers of the event are excited about a large showing of KC Cadilac Club vehicles, and our presence would show great support for the young restoration students.
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.
