October Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Fall (California style), but it does look like we're getting a cool down. THANK GOODNESS! I hope you were able to make it out to The Beach Cities Mustang Clubs show at the Queen Mary, what a beautiful location for a show. We also had the Wheels for Meals show in Rancho Cucamonga on Sept 12th and I'd like to give a "shout out" to Anthony for taking pictures at the event and submitting them to us so we can put them up on our website, THANK YOU!!

Well October is a pretty busy month so make sure to mark your calendars so you don't miss out; there is the 1st Annual Grape Harvest Car Show at Victoria Gardens on Sun Oct 4th, 10am - 4pm, this show is in conjunction with the 70th Annual Grape Harvest Festival which is Oct 2-4 and will include arts & crafts, wine tasting, grape stomping, entertainment & food. This show sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to start the month. Then there will be the Harvest Classic, Rod and Custom Car Show on Sat Oct 17th, 8am - 4pm at Foothill Christian School at 242 Baseline Rd, Glendora, 91740, proceeds from this show go to benefit the students and help to offset the cost of a trip to Washington DC.

For a change of pace there will be the 1st Annual Jet Boat Regatta at Irvine Lake Oct 23-25, hours will be Fri 7am-dusk, Sat 7am-dusk, and Sun 7am-5pm, general admission each day is $10 and if you want to camp during the event the fee is $25 per night. The Fall Harvest Cruise presented by Golden West Chevelle & El Caminos Club and benifitting the Cable Airport Foundation will be held Sat Oct 24th, 12pm-4pm at Cable Airport in Upland. The 7th Annual Classic Car Show at Heritage Park, better known as "The Pumpkin Patch Show" in La Verne on Sat Oct 24th, 10am-3pm, they will have a pumpkin patch for the kids, and food, live music, and wagon rides; this is a great show for feeling the Fall season and getting in the Halloween spirit.

Well I don't know how this one got by me; the 19th Annual Veteran's Car Show on Sun Oct 4th, 8am - 3:30pm at Jerry L Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center, 11201 Benton, Loma Linda. This is a huge show with lots of food, shopping venders, and music and is held for a great cause, to benefit our US Veterans. It is already to capacity for cars and the grounds are beautiful, I know it's short notice but make this a must attend.

Then the 24th Annual Memorial Park Car Show on Sun Oct 25th, 8am-2pm, presented by Baldy View Regional Group of the Early Ford V8 Club of America; they will be having raffles & door prizes, and food. And wrapping up the month is the 3rd Annual Autum Motorama at The Heights in West Covina at 2300 S Azusa Ave on Sat Oct 31st, 9am - 3pm, with Trunk-or-Treat, costume contest, raffles, prizes, and food. WOW!! what a month, I hope you're able to make it out to some of these shows and maybe the weather will cooperate and keep it feeling like Fall. Be sure to watch our website for updated slide shows of recent car shows that we've attended at and watch for our new look coming soon. Have a wonderful October and I hope you all get treats and no tricks.

I've got a special "mark your calendar" event for you, on Sun Nov 8th the Old Skool Cruizers is having their Holiday Car Show at Memorial Park in Upland from 10am - 2pm. The enterance fee to the show is $10 and a new, unwrapped toy which will be donated to the Upland firefighters "Spark of Love" toy drive. If you don't think you can make it out to the show but would still like to donate a toy you can bring it to us at THE SPEED SHOP and we will collect them and pass them along to the club.

I just got word that the Irvine Lake Jet Boat Regatta Oct 23-25 has been canceled. SORRY!
