Many club members were out on a beautiful spring day for the 2nd Annual Pamplin Breakthrough Car Show at Pamplin Historical Park on May 15, also marking Thunderbird Appreciation Day. Bill and Linda Brown hosted, coordinated parking, and supplied 50th Anniversary cake to mark the VCTC milestone. Along with hundreds of others, we were able to showcase our cars and see many other classics and customs. It was a great gathering and to top it off, Susan Thorson won runner up in class C with her Dusk Rose ‘57. Congratulations to her! Seeing the strong club participation was awesome…mark your calendars for next year. On May 28/29, J. and Connie Brown hosted club members for the annual Fredericksburg Region AACA Car Show. The event shifted dates and location this year but retained a Friday social at the Caroline House followed by traditional German dinner at the Deutschland Downtown restaurant. Despite misty Saturday weather many members participated. Thanks to J. and Connie Brown, Wayne and Ruth Dubois, Bill and Linda Brown, Stan and Lee Hostetler, Fred Schmoyer, George Lake, Val Knight, and John Greenaway for showing the flag! Also, congrats to Fred on earning the 2 nd place trophy for his Mustang…just 1 point out of first. The next club event will be hosted by the Wigleys at their home in Toano on July 10. Steve and Nancy will provide a big pot of Low-Country Boil (sausage, shrimp, and a whole mess of veggies) and drinks. Expect to see a sign-up list for side dishes and desserts closer to the date. Additional details are already out in separate email. Please RSVP by July 1 to We are looking into options for the August club meeting with a plan to make it a club-funded event and will encourage maximum participation. No details yet but we hope to identify a centrally located venue which can cater the event and will provide an opportunity to socialize and celebrate. Expect more details as they are available, and I hope you can be part of the gathering. The club event calendar is open from September through the end of the year. Please consider hosting a club gathering later this year. If you are hesitant to host or unfamiliar with how to organize an event, look at “Tips for Hosting” at the bottom of the “Events” tab on the VCTC website. It’s easy and there’s always others willing to help. Until the next time, stay safe and be well.

All the best! Eric VCTC President
