Hurricane Matthew has caused another cancelation. The Lakeridge winery tour and dinner at Angelo’s is canceled. The club board is working hard to reschedule events. Stay tuned for an email update.
Lots of Fun. Laughter filled the Truman Rec center tonight as members of the Villages Vintage Car Club enjoyed game night. Village Feud, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Name that tune and Deal or No Deal all professionally presented by Ric Mitchell. The setup was just like being on TV. Entertaining for both participants and viewers. Club members won chances for large sums of money. Everyone went home a winner.
Wow was the comment from the club members who were visiting for the first time. 200 cars -originals, low mileage, historically significant. The 5 millionth car produced by Ford next to the 5 millionth car produced by Chevrolet. Really , how do you find these cars. There were 30 to 40 year old examples of cars and trucks with 10 original miles on them. The guide who narrated the tour was more than knowledgeable, he was an expert. After the NPD visit the group moved to Mimi’s café where they assembled in a private room for a great lunch. The energy in the room was high octane.

Several members of The Villages Vintage Car Club were spotted at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee. With nearly 2000 cars on site it was almost more eye candy one could take in. Three different groups from the car club were spotted. If 60’s muscle cars are part of your car passion this was the place to be. There was one late 90’s BMW with 32 inch chrome rims but that was an exception. Lots off Detroit Iron on display and up for auction. The auction action was fast and furious. Watched a 68 Austin Healy 3000 go across the block starting bid at $12,000 and in a blink it was well north of $75,000 selling at $82,000. An awesome show and beautiful facility
