Welcome friends and Chrysler Enthusiasts to another monthly newsletter, it is great to see some new people at our Club meetings again. It was good to see a new member rejoin as well. It is great to see and talk to members again, just as a car club should be like - talking cars and getting solutions to repairs and fixes.
As always something about Chrysler EXPO:
Our next EXPO meeting will not be until later as we have all organised it will be just a reminder to traders and exhibitors as well the public to let them know Chrysler EXPO will be on in September 2021.
This time the EXPO was cancelled due to not Covid but the weather, the oval was that wet with the long grass and exhibitors who were coming to display their attractions also cancelled due to the condition of the oval.
This does not mean that we will not need volunteers to help get the September event of Chrysler EXPO up and running as we will need you. So if you can spare some time to help out before the Monthly Club meeting please do show up and put your information into the meeting to make the 2021 Sept Chrysler EXPO the best yet.
The Presidents Day run was held on the prescribed date - members who attended met at the Shell servo on the gateway heading North and were led by Derick in a 1950’s Ute (mainline Ute).
As they approached the Hornibrook bridge I was waiting to take lead and drive the tourist drive around the Redcliffe Peninsula - it was a very picturesque drive seeing the Moreton Bay in all its glory, with the older Queenslander homes and the tree-lined avenues with some roads covered by the shade of the trees.
It was more of a ramble cruise than a drive as some of the speed limits were about 40Klm’s. Made it to our parking spot which we found just over the road from Morgan’s seafood - a place that we never thought that we would get on a Sunday morning. Parking was just there plenty for all, BBQ’s and tables and seating for all that turned up. The park that had originally been chosen was blocked off by a gate, something we could not see on Google earth but just down the roadways, we found this great place.
It was a great day and as always a great scene with the Classic Chryslers. People came out with cameras and started taking photos and talking to the club members about their pride and joy. THANK YOU, BRUCE, for the food just plenty for all and the drinks THANK YOU, GREG.
Now for my holiday complaint as you would have noticed the cost of the motion lotion that our classic cars require to feed on goes up every holiday and then after the holidays it may go down just some of the rise. My main complaint if each of us chose a fuel company to refuse to use and every time you need fuel you boycott that fuel company then maybe they would get the message.
I have for the past 35 years refused to buy fuel from one of our local servos as the fuel company closed down a local servo and gave the business to their friends. I have not bought fuel from that company in 35 years and that included the USA and NZ and the UK. But that is my bitch with that fuel company.
Well, captive reader, I am getting close to the end of the page, stay safe come to the meetings and join in the conversations on how to fix your pride and joy and see if we can help you out.
Let us get out there, support the club on the runs, and have the fun that we all planned to have when we started with the Club.
