Hoping I can make it as well. It's always nice to spend some winter time in the warm Florida sun, and catching up with some good V8ing friends

Merry Christmas Bruce. I spent two Christmases overseas myself, while in the Army, so I know what that's like. God bless our service men and women.

TAMPA BAY AUTO MUSEUM www.tbauto.org.
Today Mike and I took a cruise over to Pinellas Park, Florida, to check out the TAMPA BAY AUTO MUSEUM as a possible stop on the Saturday driving tour part of the 2017 Florida “Barner’s Bash”, from February 24th to 26th. We both came away with the conclusion that the TAMPA BAY AUTO MUSEUM is a must see attraction. The Cigar City Flatheads were given a group discount, just $5.00 per person to tour the 14,000 sq. ft. museum chock full of outstanding vehicles. The location is just about a half hour ride from the host hotel, and features panoramic views of Tampa Bay, perfect for topless cruisin… For lunch, there is a Steak & Lube just about two miles from the museum, and they have car shows just about every weekend. We plan on arriving at the museum between 10 and 10:30 am on Saturday, Feb. 25th. We’ve also booked the pavilion at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, Fl. For the traditional Cigar City Flatheads BBQ. Additionally, we are setting up several garage/restoration shop tours for Friday, and don’t forget PIZZA for lunch at the now famous Keystone Corner Deli… See you in February.

Sounds great. I already booked my flight, so I didn't need any more incentive to go. I just wish I was in a position to take one of my old cars down there! I hope someone will give me a ride!

You can ride with me, I can always use extra help if and when pushing becomes involved...

Here's a reminder for those of you that are planning to attend the 2017 Florida "Barner's Bash" from February 24th to 26th... You have until January 27th, to book your room and take advantage of significant savings on the room rate. Should you find other accommodations, please remember that the 'host hotel' will be the point of origin for all events. See you in February.

It's getting close to that time when we'll need a headcount of those who will be attending the 2017 Florida "Barner's Bash". from February 24th to 26th. If you are going to attend, please contact me here on the FordBarn or on the Cigar City Flatheads pages on FaceBook, to let me know how many people you will be bringing. Looking forward to seeing everyone in February. Thanks. Vic
