TOUR: For the Love of Cars

Even though February is early in the year, we will be having a drive before we enjoy our afternoon of activities. To encourage all of you to get out the vintage CARS, we will be having the “old CAR drawing”. Depending on how many vintage CARS attend we may even have more than one! The tour will be 30 miles long. We will be driving to the Grotto Convention Center passing through some interesting neighborhoods. It will be a city route, but we have done our best to avoid traffic lights so that we will be able to keep together.

Most of us have Columbia River Region shirts of some kind, but I would bet most of us have shirts, jackets or hats from other CAR events we have attended. I am asking that we wear those instead. They can be from another tour we attended, or better yet from a CAR event such as a race, a museum, a cruise in or even an In-N-Out Burger. It will be a blast seeing where some of you have been throughout the USA and even the world in the pursuit of having fun with your CARS! Don’t worry about it even you don’t have a different shirt, wear whatever you have. Just come and have some fun.

I know some of you have collections of vintage CARS, but even those of us with just one vintage CAR probably collect something else. So I am asking you to share your collection. We will have tables set up to display them so all can enjoy looking at them. They don’t even have to be CAR related, just bring them! Please limit the size of what you bring to a 2 foot by 2 foot area or about what will fit in a shopping bag. After time to look at the displays and visiting, we will have a game to test your knowledge of music about CARS.

So the next time you listen to music on a CAR radio or at home and it has something to do with CARS give it a little more attention than usual. We also will have a 16-minute movie entitled “Inspiration for CARS”. I’m sure you will find it both funny and entertaining. There will be recorded music with what else but a CARS theme. Who knows what else I will come up with before then. Most of all, there will be time for chatting with friends, old and new.

Lastly, dinner will be a Greek inspired buffet style meal and will include a beverage and dessert. For those of you who attended our tour here a few years ago, you know the Chef comes up with some delicious food.
