Hangout Should be Awesome

Hot Rod Hangout at Freddy’s should be a blast with the great weather and the typical 40 or so Collector Car Enthusiast who generally show up…the weather should be “Car Heaven Perfect” for Wednesday at 9:30 (better show up at 9 AM for good seats)

Hey, Kids,

Check this message out which came in from Laura Joyce of the AllGens Camaro Club of Southern Utah

Hey there,

We are organizing a private screening of Furious 7 at Sunset Stadium on April 3rd at 7:00pm.  I don’t have a flyer but I could share the link to our facebook page event when I get home because I can’t get on facebook at work.  We want to put this out there for anyone in the car community that wants to join us.  It will cost $10 per person and snacks can be purchased for regular price at the concession stand.  We have to confirm our headcount on May 27th so we are asking that each car club collect the money from their people and give us a total number with the money so we can reserve a big enough theater.

Vietnam Wall Visiting Our Area

Zion Harley, Coral Canyon, is hosting the Traveling Vietnam Wall now through Sunday……Our very own Patrick Curtis will be standing guard tonight from 10 PM through Midnight…….Good luck with that Patrick…I love that Wall, but I will be in about a fourth level rem by then I hope.

Folks….this is about as emotional a thing to visit as the atual wall in Washington DC….This is not an attempt to “bully” anyone into anything, but this is something that should not be missed.

I am amazed at the lack of attention by our local press, radio stations, and community calendars of this visit.

Food Truck Friday

11 AM to 1:30 PM at Findlay Auto of Southern Utah – Old cars, new cars, walk over, ride a moped… one cares just come on out and enjoy the food, fun, cars, and all the action.
