PREZ MESS

from WHAT’S NEW IN BIRDLAND?

HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT……..
But enough about me….LOL
In full disclosure, I am actually recycling parts of last month’s actual Presidents message that, unfortunately, never got published and was replaced by the previous month’s “recycled” President’s message…After all, why waste good prose….????
So, I’m sitting here (last month) watching a recorded version of RMD Garage on the Velocity Channel on the resto-ration of a 1957 Bird and OMG these guys (this show) is soooooo bad. Quote, …”this car is so iconic and we have no idea if these parts are even available. Can you imagine trying to find one of these Thunderbird emblems. (front nose panel) We better not lose this. We’ll never find a new one” OMG.
Anyway….It’s been a hot busy summer for all of us, from our Olde Town Sacramento trip and our Danville Hot Summer Nights shows, our fabulous Ironstone weekend and on to Santa Cruz Birds on the Wharf. It’s been a great summer we’ve even picked up a few new members along the way. Thanks to everyone for being a part of it.
(OMG they are stripping the car with JASCO paint remover).
September was, of course, our busy month and I, for one, really enjoyed every one of our trips. Ironstone on September 23rd in was a fabulous weekend of perfect weather and a great show. September 30th brought 14 cars to our co-sponsored Birds on the Wharf show. Our own Nick Verhoek spread his wings and brought home the Best 1955 award with his beautiful Yellow ’55. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the “after party” organized by our own Tim & Laura Knapp. Hopefully we’ll get a recap of that fun time. I know we all thoroughly enjoyed the event and after some great conversations with Sandi and Alan Brown (President of the Monterey club) I suspect that we may continue our co-sponsorship of the event and work more closely with them next year.
Our Route 66 event for next October is coming along nicely. The official route is almost finished…(I know that sounds silly….aren’t we just driving Route 66?)…but there are numerous side trips and sights that we will all want to see along the way. After all, how can you miss the WigWam Motel or “Standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona? I want to take this opportunity for a huge round of applause to our Route 66 committee. What a dedicated group of people. We will have a complete report and overview at this month’s meeting on Saturday (Oct. 14th). Be sure to join us for all the fun.
I am sure there are things that I am forgetting here, but it is time to move on and start the day. See you all at this month’s meeting and / or at an upcoming outing near you……
Have a fabulous day,
Dave
