All are welcomed to join us at our next club meeting on Monday, October 6, 2014 at Lizard's Thicket, 1712 West Palmetto Street in Florence, 6:30 PM to eat, 7:30 PM to meet.

The Palmetto Cruisers Car Club is a not for profit organization located in Florence, SC. We sponsor car shows and classic car events in Florence, Kingstree, Lake City and throughout the surrounding areas. It is our mission to enrich the local community while promoting and nourishing a love for classic automobiles. The events that we organize are meant to show our interest in the classic cars from years past, but more importantly, we try to give back to the surrounding communities. We sponsor events such as cruise-ins to nursing homes and our annual toy drive in order to help others who may not be as fortunate as the rest of us. In addition, at Christmas time, with cash donations, we support local charities and organizations, such as the Florence Area Humane Society, the Florence Rescue Squad, the Salvation Army (Angel Tree) and the Pee Dee Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Assault, Williamsburg Cares, the Sandy Bay Pentecostal Holiness Church, the Lake City Pentecostal Holiness Church and the United States Marine Reserve Toys for Tots Campaign.

If you are interested in joining our club, we meet on the first Monday of every month at the Venus Pancake House, 471 W. Palmetto St. in Florence. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m., but feel free to join us at 6:30 p.m. if you would like to eat before the meeting. Our club is open to anyone whether you own a classic car or just love to see them, come and join us. Click HERE to download a copy of our membership application forms (.doc documents).

QUESTION:What was the stylish feature first introduced by an American automobile manufacturer that was inspired by a W.W.II airplane and what was the year and the make of the automobile on which it first appeared?

ANSWER: According to the auto editors at Consumer Guide, the 1948 Cadillac sported the "first-ever" tailfins, which were inspired by Lockheed's P-38 Lightning fighter plane.
