The May meeting of the Capitol Panteras was held at Mimi’s with eight members attending: Rick Carlile, John Drago, Lori Drew, Mike & Nancy Haney, John McNamee, Ron Southern, Emilia & Jim Seiferling.
There was no raffle this meeting. But there were enough club cars to have the “Driving for Gas Money” drawing. The winner was John Drago.
President John announced that the June Capitol Panteras meeting will be held at the California Auto Museum on Thursday, June 18 at 6 PM. He asked that we have a good representation of club cars at this meeting. John hopes to have a presentation given by the museum staff on the current status of the Auto Museum. The Club will provide pizza and drinks. Ron said he will use the gift certificate that he won a couple of meetings back to provide a desert for the group.
President John reminded everyone about the Serrano Concourse in October. This prompted Jim to announce that he had a date set to start the work on the Pantera. Jim and his cousin, Rich, will start later this month on the extensive list of items to be done! (Note; the car was driven back to Rio Vista, from Placerville, on May 24th!)
The Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival will have both Rick Carlile and John McNamee’s brother participating. We wish both of them luck at the races.
