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 Lizards Thicket 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).

Mike Hill's 1968 Mustang Convertible

Mike Hill's '68 Mustang Convertible

Mike got his 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible sometime around the year 2000 as the down-payment on a house he constructed. It has been completely restored and is completely stock. There's a 289 CID engine under the hood, with Cobra valve covers just for show, and it has an automatic transmission, power steering, front disk brakes and factory air-conditioning. It's a driver, too, with over 150,000 miles on it!

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

QUESTION: What 1970 make & model American automobile got axed in the middle of that model year?

    Great guess, but it was not the Singer; there never was a "Chrysler Singer". Although Chrysler bought out Singer in 1970, they never used the name.
    Here's a hint: when the model was axed, the model name was transferred to another model of the same make.

ANSWER: According to the auto editors of Consumer Guide, the 1970 Ford Falcon was axed in the middle of the model year and its name was transferred to a stripped-down Ford Torino.

The Palmetto Cruisers' Cruisin the View Column

     As webmaster of the second generation Palmetto Cruisers Web site, I hereby officially turn my duties over to the third generation webmaster, Brian Kelley. I can't say I'm happy about giving up the honors, I've had a ball working on the Web site for the past six years, but there comes a turn over a new leaf, to coin a couple of cliches. I hope everyone who visited the site during my time enjoyed browsing it as much as I did creating it. I'm looking forward to seeing Brian's new format, features, pictures, etc.
    To the members of the club and to the attendees of our shows that I got to know during my time with the club, I'll miss you all, but will see you again from time to time, me with my hot rod, at some future shows. It'll be great to get my own car into a few of the Web site's pictures. Since I took most of the pictures throughout my tenure as webmaster, I was rarely seen in any of the over 6,000 pictures that appeared on the site during my time. Hopefully that will change.
    Merry Christmas to you all and have a safe and happy 2015!
