There will also be a Car Show held at the Applebee's at 521 N McKinley in Corona from 3pm - 6pm, this event is held the 2nd Sat each month. I would like to thank Don Dexter and Tom Leslie for bring to my attention a couple of shows coming this month that I didn't have listed, they are the Memorial Park Car Show on Oct 24th in Upland presented by the Early Ford V8 Club Baldy View Regional Group #88 and the Golden West Chevelle and El Caminos Club presents the Fall Harvest Cruise to benefit Cable Airport in Upland on Oct 24th. We have a lot of great shows coming up this month with a harvest theme and when the weather decides to cooperate more it will really be nice to move into the Autumn season. I hope you are able to get out there and enjoy one, or more, of these great events and please remember if there is an event that I've forgotten to post or if your club is holding a show or cruise night get me the info and I'll be sure to get it out there for you.
