Minneapolis area Collector Car Shows and Chanhassen AutoPlex Flyer


Greetings,

Haven’t updated my Blog in a while because the weather just doesn’t seem to be letting up on its gripe of winter, wonder what summer will bring? In most winters there are periods that warm up a couple days and the streets dry off enough to take my ’49 out for a short ride but not this winter!

Anyway there is the GSTA Rod and Custom Show April 14 and 15 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds – Free parking!

Just thought I would let you know what is coming up with the Tonka Cruzers this year.

First Thom Lofquist and I entered our Cars for the benefit of an Auction Fund Raiser for Chapel Hill Academy in Chanhassen recently and got a bid for $500 for taking the bidders to a Car Show. Also found Thom a opportunity to be a Wedding Car this summer.

As for my endeavors here is the List without dates or times which are still in the planning stage.

Chanhassen Night out on the Town – 4th year
Catholic Elder Care N.E. Mpls – 5th year
Wealshire of Bloomington Assisted Living – 4th year
Chapel Hill Academy Chanhassen – 2nd year

For those who have been a part of these shows in the past hope to see you attend these events again.

So keep checking my Blog for future updates.

Be Well hope to see you soon,
