The Season is not quite over
While the air is cooler, the shadows longer, the days getting shorter, there are still many upcoming events. Please check the current 2015 List of Events for October It’s a long off season…. so why not go to as many of these as you can before putting your classic away.
And After the Cruising Season…
Here’s something that might perk you up in November! The Friends of the Eldridge Public Library – Fall 2015 Learning Series is presenting a 3 week course entitled “Car Collecting – From Pebble Beach to the A&W”. It meets on Mondays, starting on Nov 9th, from 10:30 am -12:00 pm. This course will be held at the Chatham Community Center (702 Main St., Chatham). The presenters are:
Charlie Wallace is a Packard guy who collects, buys and sells cars and parts (Note: Charlie drives his cars, a ’33, a ’34 and a ’41 Woodie. – the only one that goes on a trailer is the 1913 V-12…).
Craig Kapel is purely a collector and has two mid-30’s Packards, an Auburn Boat-tail replica and 3 or 4 Mercedes. His cars have taken firsts at Pebble Beach and Amelia Island. They are going to talk about collecting and showing cars.
Club Member Dave Wilbur – the only Hot Rod guy in the group and will talk about having only one car and what you can do with it – events, cruise nights, etc. He will also talk about buying a car and finding the resources to fix or restore it.
They have tentatively scheduled one session in a hangar at the Chatham Airport to show three of these cars – it’s not going to be a formal program, but rather three guys talking about cars and answering questions.
This will be an interesting way to while away a few hours with a bunch of car guys – and maybe grab lunch afterwards at one of the area’s restaurants… Check out the attached brochure and registration form – the course is $15.00.
Club Officer Nominations & Committees:
Fall is also the time to think about the 2016 Club Officer Positions…How about taking the lead in Your Club by running for one of the offices. Nominations and the Club’s future direction discussions will be a part of the Fall meetings…please attend and voice your thoughts.
Whether you’re a recent or long time member, this is also the time to think of becoming part of a Committee for 2016. Join one and help set the agenda for next year.

Still Cruizin’ After All These Years
The Cape Cod Classics Car Club is a family-oriented club of specialty and collector car enthusiasts that live, work and vacation on the idyllic peninsular of Cape Cod. Our members’ vehicles run the gamut of striking antiques to macho hot rods, and everything in between.
As one of the oldest and largest car clubs on the Cape, having started in the 1950s, we consistently attract substantial and enthusiastic crowds to our weekly cruise nights at Patriots Square that run from May through the third Saturday in September. Tourists and natives alike revel in the opportunity to step back in time to the glory days of fast cars and free spirit reminiscent of their youth. Cruise nights have become a destination for those anxious to capture a photo of themselves beaming in front of their favorite classic car.
We are a highly motivated group holding a multitude of events and activities before, during, and after the “cruise season.” Essential to our Mission Statement is the ongoing ability to give back to the Cape Cod Community; therefore at year’s end, a percentage of our proceeds are donated to various charitable organizations on Cape Cod.
