Hi All
OK another Update
4Guys Autobarn have agreed to sponsor this event which now allows us to hire a large Marquee which they will use to place the Vehicles on display that they bring to Americarna 2020.
The marquee will also be used for the Wednesday afternoon Welcome Function adding the opportunity for additional space to get out of the sun.  Bring your fold up chairs.    You will also get a complimentary drink & sausage ticket to use.  The caterers have been told we want faster service and a second outdoor bar for 2020.
You will see below that 4Guys Autobarn have also listed a car of the month.  This is on our Facebook page also, and a different car will be posted each month.
We have had a meeting with the council around the Ben Harper concert being held the same night at the Friday Night Cruise.  Harper wont be on stage until 9:00pm so plenty of time for you to cruise and make the concert for those who want to attend.  What we would now like to know: Who is planning on attending this concert?  We are working on special parking, security and shuttles if the numbers require this service. So please advise with Concert in the subject line if you are planning to go to the concert Friday Night for the Ben Harper Band.

Have a great weekend.  We will be in touch with more updates soon.

4Guys AutoBarn Car of the Month - Grey  Camaro ZL1 1LE

“The ZL1 1LE is the ultimate Camaro. It’s based on the ZL1, meaning it gets a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. On top of that, it gets the 1LE treatment, which is Chevy speak for a package of chassis upgrades designed to improve handling. Notable features include a massive rear wing and race car-like dive planes to increase downforce, Multimatic DSSV dampers, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires, and a 50-pound weight reduction compared to the standard ZL1.
For 2019, Chevy re calibrated the dampers, traction control system, and electronic limited-slip differential to account for the behavior of the automatic transmission. Chevy also added a transmission oil pan and an additional cooling duct for the steering gear to keep temperatures in check during track sessions.”
