About the Cruise In...... I sure got off the subject, didn't I.
I think it would be a memory to hang onto.
I still remember back in the early Fifties, Participating in a parade at the Romeo (Michigan) Peach Festival in my MG-TY Tourer. I was a member of the Michigan Sports Car Club.
After the parade, we (the club) were invited to lunch at the home of the CEO of American Motors (There was more than enough room for parking between his home and garage. The garage(5 car w/a lift and a pit) had a new 'Nash Healy" and a "Mighty Mite" (Talk about small) in it. To sit around eating chicken dinner in that garage with the unique garage aroma surrounded by tools, cars and 'Like-thinking' companions was like being in heaven
I heartily second the suggestion (Cruise-In, remember?) You will remember it fondly for the rest of your life as I have for over fifty years now of some of the events I attended.
If we have an event, and I am asked to, I will tell of some of the highlights of my association with the automobile and it's history. To me, as I look back, I was fortunate to have met; Preston Tucker, Felix Wankel, Henry Ford, Dr Porsche Jr (His father was the great great grandfather of your new Smart), Shochiro Honda, Shoji Hattori and others.
I went off on a tengent again, didn't I ?
More another time
