For your convenience, we have added four "quick links" to this page to help you find upcoming car shows and the cheapest gas or nearest gas station with no ethanol gas... Mark your calendars now for the September 27, 2014, Palmetto Cruisers' Cypress Festival Car, Truck, Bike & Trike Show in Pamplico, SC... All are welcome to join us at our next club meeting on Monday, August 4, 2014, at Lizard's Thicket, 1712 W. Palmetto St. Florence, SC, 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 A CHOICE 2 M8K, House of Hope, Manna House and the United States Marine Reserve Toys for Tots Campaign and others in need.

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).

Tom had wanted a T-Bird for over 20 years. When he found this one listed on eBay, a Merlot colored 2004 with tan and black interior, he called the dealer in the Atlanta area, made a deal and got the car on July 1, 2005. It was only a year old, had only 9,600 miles on it, and was one of only 3,991 made. Tom says it is hard to believe that he has had this car for 9 years. It now has 39,000 miles on it, and he has never had a car that he has enjoyed more than this one.

PC_QA_Title How well do you know your cars...

QUESTION: What did General Motors do to the Chevrolet Corvair in 1964 to improve the tricky handling characteristics of the earlier models?

ANSWER: The suspension was modified for 1964 models, with inclusion of a standard front anti-roll bar and a transverse-mounted rear spring. A totally redesigned four-link, fully independent rear suspension was introduced in 1965, which finally and completely eliminated the earlier "tricky handling" problems. Production of the Corvair ceased in 1969 because of poor sales figures, apparently due to the increased popularity of the Chevrolet Nova (previously known as the Chevrolet Chevy II Nova).
