Clo also acted as our celebrity judge to chose Dennis and Betty Hautzenrader’s beautiful 1940 Pontiac Coupe to win the Sundae Cup Trophy. She may be a cow, but Clo certainly is no slouch at judging classic cars!
By all accounts, Mixed Nuts (the band) were a hit at their premiere engagement at the Cruise In. They have agreed to be our regular band for the 2013 season.
A big THANK YOU to Clover for loaning us Clo, providing great raffle prizes, and providing the Cowafornia Dreamin’ banner, and in particular to Amanda (who was inside the costume) and Emily (Amanda’s helper), Clover’s Ambassadors, for doing such a great job out in that heat!
Lovely time at the Cruise In on Aug. 26th. Nice turnout and everyone looked to be enjoying themselves. In addition to our usual raffle prizes, local artist Adrian Ruyle raffled off a very cool print of Steve McQueen on a motorcycle and displayed his own cool dragon scooter along with the classic cars. Mike McCaffrey was awarded the Sundae Cup trophy by the Mahrt Family from the Petaluma Egg Farm for his 1953 Chevy Pick Up...with a hay bale in the back. Steve Mahrt said this was the detail that sealed the deal for them.
really IS eggcentric! Thanks to the Egg Farm for officiating, to Adrian for his generous donation of a print to the raffle, to Bill Hearn for adding his musical talents to the sounds of the band, and to all who brought their gorgeous rides to the show…or just came by to see them. Hope to see you all next month! Petaluma
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The organizers of the American Graffiti event here in Petaluma asked us to help publicize their fundraising raffle of a high performance 383 small block Chevy motor. For all the details, go to http://www.americangraffiti.net/raffle.html
At the July 29 event, Petaluma Speedway's Rick Faeth was our celebrity judge. Rick also brought along a couple of racecars, and Sparky, one of the car's drivers, to the delight of the motorheads and race fans in attendance. We are very grateful to both Rick and Sparky for sharing their cars, their knowledge, and their time with us! The car Rick chose for the trophy wasn't a hot rod or a muscle car....or even an American car, for that matter!
Congratulations to Hudson and Minnie Graham for their beautiful 1958 Austin Healey.
