Kennedy Center

Six Corvettes,Plus one, parked in the front drive way at the Kennedy Center, this Friday morning. This is a school for disadvantage childern. The D.J. was playing 1950 music and there was popcorn and goodies for sale,raffle tickets were sold and Blanche won a Southern Motor T shirt. The students came on their lunch break to view the corvettes and other cars from the Flaming Pistons Club. Two students were given rides in Chucks corvette. The cars definitely brighten their lunch time and sent them smiling back to class. Due to budget cuts this event has been postponed for a few years, until this year Mr Perry , coordinator brought it back and is already planning next year

Lakevill Inn

Hazy,sunny and hot....the perfect day for Corvettes to cruise to the Lakeville Inn. Assorted colored Corvettes parked in the large lot,made it look more like a large flower bed rather than a place to park cars.Among the bouquet of Corvettes,several other unidentified vehicles were parked to give a touch of contrast. Dark clouds appeared after our arrival,and diverted us from the once sunny deck to a dimly lite room. Oh Well! The chatter was still abundant, topics ranged from trips taken,to when is the next cruise. There are new owners at the Lakeville Inn and sadly this meant deep fried olives and pickles are no more. Some members were disappointed .The staff was pleasant,sparse,and slower than a Sunday driver when you're late for work. The food was excellent and the portions large. Ah...a long lunch,one of the perks of Dun Werkin. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon. The ride home with top down or windows open,completed the day of good food,friends and cars

Happy Birthday Russ

Seems our very own president and fearless leader (that's Russ!), suffered/experienced/had a 60th birthday this past weekend, coincidentally the same day as the Shelby Lions car show at the Packard Proving Grounds.

To commemmorate this auspicious event, two unnamed ladies of the club visited Russ and Carol's house (while they were away, of course) and decorated the front yard with "60 Big Ones," in reality 30 bra's apparently designed for fairly "heavy duty." Strung across the yard between two trees and marked with an appropriate sign, the picture with this blog is "ample" evidence of the magnitude of both Russ' birthday AND the task undertaken by the two unnamed ladies.

Congratulations, Russ, and happy birthday again.....a couple of days later. You're a solid president and leader of our club, and now, with "60 big ones," you have your "hands full." OK, this is even cracking me up.

Best to you, good friend.
