The Fountain of Life Church of GOD invited the Cruisin' A's to take part in their open house Auto and Motorcycle event. This was our first outing for 2021 and qualified as the Club's Kick-off event for 2021.
We had six members attend and show off their classic automobiles. The Church provided a bar-b-que, entertainment, and awards for the top car and motorcycle. Rocky and Marlene took the Spectator's Top Award.
A good time was had by all. It was great to get out and be able to socialize again.
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.
