Mark your calendars for the September 27, 2014 Palmetto Cruisers hosted Pamplico Cypress Festival Car, Truck, Bike & Trike Show!... 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).

PC_QA_Title.gif (5213 bytes) How well do you know your cars...

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?

Good guess, but the bullet nose on the 1950 Studebaker is not what we're looking for.

Gerald & Pat McCants' 1956 Ford F-100 Truck

Gerald and Pat's F-100 is a work in progress. The engine is a 1968 390 CID Ford backed by a C6 automatic transmission. They have also installed a 9 inch rearend, a Lokar shifter kit and a Toyota power steering gear box. The truck has been lowered approximately 4 inches up front and 4 inches in the back. A 1986 Buick tilt hood mechanism has been installed so the hood tilts forward. Here are pictures of some of their progress so far.

California Car Shows!

I dropped a note to our club's soon-to-be-past-vice-president, John Ralph, who has moved (back) to California. He is, of course, hitting the car shows in the area there with his '55 Chevy Bel Air and had this to say about the first show he attended: "I have only attended one so far and I forgot how different it is here. I paid $15 to enter, which seems to be the norm, got this bag full of stuff worth way more than $15, the shows go from 10am to 2pm and the door prizes are crazy. My neighbor got a 42' LCD TV. Tonight we are driving to Barstow (an hours drive on the original Route 66) to go to a cruise in at a Tastee Freeze and then we all go to the Skyline Drive In/Cruise In to watch a movie. Man, I haven't been to a drive in movie in a long long time." Whoa, we haven't even HAD a drive-in movie theater in a long long time! Anybody else want to move to California? Sounds great!

John will be sending us details of his trip getting to California, along with a few pictures soon. It should be very interesting. Thanks, John. Keep us posted.
