Starting a new thread to post the club's things instead of always posting new threads.

This Saturday is Cars and Coffee at 119th and Metcalf in OP. In the Hobby Lobby parking lot close to the McDonalds (NW corner of intersection). It starts at 8am, I usually show up around 7:30 (and Frank always beats me there somehow..and he lives in a different time zone). If up early with nothing to do...come on out. You can also help me keep the adult collectors out of the "free to kids" hot wheel box.

Saw a gray Abarth 'vert with temp plates today at Batteries Plus on 119th. Didn't get a chance to talk to them though.

Probably not. Getting oil changed in my daily right now. Little burned out on cars and coffee but may try to make the one in 2 weeks there with Santa present. For some reason I can’t access the forum on our new computers at home and can’t find the firewall setting to fix it. So keep checking cars a Nostra for updates. I hate typing on my phone

When is the Arkansas run next year?

That was probably Tara that showed up. She's heavily involved with SCCA. The run will more than likely be the last weekend in April, or the weekend before that. Haven't finalized anything yet except we're staying at the Hotel Seville in Harrison, and drove a good portion of the route (missed a couple of turns the last time) the last time we were there.

Cars and Coffee at the Auto Museum next Saturday Dec. 16th at 8am. Prime parking is limited...and this one Santa is going to be there. I'll be there at 7:30 if you need a spot held.

Sadly I'm working this coming weekend.

Look for a silver 1960 Caddy 'vert there. He rolled in the other week shaking the ground with the exhaust. It is an awesome ride.

I'm looking at morning temps...and thinking maybe not. My nice warm bed sounds a lot better.

Here's more/updated information for the Freezin for a Reason cruise Saturday Jan. 6th. I'll be there a little earlier so they can tell us where to set up to hand out Hot Wheels. Sounds like there's food afterwords also if you want to stay and chill and eat some grub. The link for the event is below

"Alright everyone the day is fast approaching!! Just wanted to confirm some times and details for everyone. The ride will be Saturday January 6th. Doors at Gail's Harley Davidson will open at 10:00 am and Gail's will be serving waffles and hot drinks for anyone who is hungry. Registration tables will be set up at that time as well. The pre-registration deadline to guarantee a t-shirt has passed but you can still register online or the day of the event. We will have a few extra t-shirts the day of the event but they will be on a first come first serve basis. Once the are gone they are gone. Registration will end at 12:45 PM. A safety brief will begin at 1:00 PM with the ride immediately following. The ride route will be the same as in years past and we will be stopping at Longview Lake Beach for some photo opps. The ride will conclude at Stuey McBrews, where warm chili will be awaiting you along with an awesome auction! Thank you to all who are coming out to support and I look forward to freezing with you! Continue spreading the word and have a Merry Christmas!!"

Don't forget..this Saturday....and it's going to be a balmy low 30's. The cruise is to benefit Special Olympics...so it is for a good cause.

We're looking at meeting at Rockstar Burger for lunch this Sunday Jan. 28th at noon. Andy is thinking of throwing out an invite to the Miata club which he's a member of to join in. http://rockstarburgers.com/ It's a block away from Kemper Arena, and there's a parking lot across the street.

Here's the show flyer for the benefit for the food pantry. The show takes over the town. It was a lot of fun last year...and we gave a bunch of Hot Wheels away to the kids...and helped raise money with donations. Also...Roller Derby in Atchison, KS tonight...starts at 6pm I believe.
