President’s Column Sept-Oct 2018
Well, the car cruise and tour season is slowly winding down (at least here in Michigan).
I hope you have all had a chance to get the old cars out and enjoy them this summer. I know
the weather has been strange all over the country this year, what with heat and raging
fires out West, unending rain and flooding out East, and here in the Midwest, just plain
hot, humid and dry. Even with the chaotic weather, we did manage to attend a few
shows- most notably, our summer Homecoming Tour in Chattanooga. It was great fun and
I really enjoyed meeting members I had not met before. This past Saturday, August 18, we drove down
to Pontiac, Michigan to attend the Woodward Dream Cruise. It is eight miles in two directions of muscle cars, antiques and anything with wheels and an engine cruising the famous Woodward Avenue, now known as the longest one day cruise in the world.Coming up, of course, is our annual Hershey event, October 10 - 13. For those of you attending, we hope you can stop by our OPW booth at RWE 33 - 35 on the Red Field and say
hello. Remember, if you have parts to sell, we can sell them for you while you shop the flea
market. On Friday, at noon, we serve a free lunch for members at the booth. You won’t
want to miss the chance to take a break, have a bite to eat and catch up with old friends or
meet some new ones. The lunch is always great, you won’t want to miss it. Safe travels everyone!
