The club received a special request to help a young man celebrate his second birthday by parading our classic cars by his birthday party. The two year-old (Micah) really enjoys the classics.
Nine members and five classic cars participated in the birthday celebration. Micah enjoyed seeing our cars and our members enjoyed getting out safely and just maybe planting a seed or two in this young man's future love of the classics.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Micah...
The club supported the North Mountain Middle School's Annual Hamburger Bash. Event proceeds go to the Unified School District of San Jacinto.
A very good turn-out was obvious and lots of inquiries about the 5 member cars that attended; especially from the school kids. We may have instilled a fascination for the vintage classic cars with the kids. The future will tell.
We all had a good time.
Our kickoff event for 2020 was a tour of the Edelbrock Foundry in San Jacinto. One of our members works for Edelbrock and was gracious enough to arrange a tour of the foundry. Edelbrock is well known for their engine performance add-ons. If you've built a street rod or engine for racing, you know full well of Edelbrock's reputation. We learned how a mold is made and witnessed the creation of engine heads, Intake and exhaust manifolds, superchargers, and various other engine components. Even parts for an irrigation system. The tour was both educational and fun. Thank-you to our tour guides and Edelbrock for hosting the Cruisin A's.
After the tour we all went out for lunch at Little Italy in San Jacinto. A great lunch and service. Thank-you to the Little Italy staff for making us feel like royalty.
It was a cool and rainy day. But six club members braved the questionable weather and represented the Cruisin' As in the annual parade.
Surprisingly, many valley residents also braved the weather and a good time was had by all.
The Cruisin' As had two vehicles in the Veteran's Day Show. Several valley-wide car clubs took part in the show.
The club. once again, took part in the Brookdale Senior Living Center's auto show. We entered seven vehicles and won two of the four "BEST IN SHOW" prizes. Our President, Dave won with his 1936 Henney Hearse. and our newest member, Al won with his 1932 Oldsmobile.
Some other clubs that attended included the Valley Cruisers and the Axle Draggers.
The folks at Brookdale provided entertainment, coffee, donuts, and a boxed lunch. The club had a great time.
Members made the harrowing trip up California Route 74 to join in the 4th of July Parade in Idyllwild. Having successfully navigated the washed-out portions of the highway, the members settled in and began preparing their Model As for the parade.
A great parade and fun time was had by all.
On June 14th the club traveled to the Vista Montana Senior Living facility in Hemet, providing the residents an opportunity to come out and view our cars and relive some of the good old days. Vista Montana provided lunch and a good time was had by all.
