Cruise Night - October 2012

We may missed out on an extra hour of sunlight with daylight saving starting next weekend, but experienced fine weather and being held during school holidays, had lots of family groups and kids enjoying another Peninsula Cruise night. We also had lots of cars. Correction, make that lots of NICE cars! Just a shade under 300 pre ’75 chrome bumpers, muscle cars and street rods rolled into the car park. The café was again busy and the BBQ in the car park was well patronized. The ice cream van on the other side of the display area seemed to be busy as well. The BBQ and ice cream van will be regulars over the coming summer months.

After checking the cars, catching up with friends and grabbing some food, 7:00pm came around quickly and it was presentation time.

First up was the night’s Best Presented award.

The LGC crew selected the first Best Presented award for this summer. Lucky winner of a $200 worth of car care products was Sam’s 1967 Chevy II Nova SS. Sam’s Grenada Gold Nova with matching interior is equipped with a highly detailed 327CI under the hood. It’s a great looking ride and was beautifully prepared for its outing, deserving its selection against lots of competition for this night’s award. Congratulations Sam.

Next up was a draw to find the night’s lucky LGC Cruiser. Recent subscriber, Tom, who took out his subscription at last month’s cruise night, collected a crisp $100 note when his name was drawn.

Real Car Guys Award

Bill Duyvestyn took the microphone and introduced out latest inductees of the Real Car Guy award. In this case it a joint award as Brian and Cheryl McCorkell are husband and wife. Brian and Cheryl are very worthy winners of this ward. They a can be regularly found at car events all over the country. Their unique ‘hot rodded’ truck with a full length trailer hauls their ‘A’ model street rod roadster and provides their accommodation when travelling. The street rod, usually with Cheryl driving, will be seen cruisin’ the particular event’s roads or cruise track, running the go whoa or stirring up dust in motorkana events. You won’t find it parked with the motor off too often! Brian and Cheryl have been attending LGC events for many years and it was great to able to recognize their contribution to our favourite hobby.

Entrant’s Prize Draw.

Lastly, it was time to find some winners for the three ACDelco car care packs. It took a while to find winners as many early arrivals had left. But we persevered and some had three smiling winners. Thanks again to the good folks at ACDelco for making these prizes available. LGC Cruisers don’t forget the great discounts available to you on the extensive ACDelco product range when purchasing these at Preston Motors trade warehouse locations.

Another good night out for all those that cruised in. For those that missed it, here’s a few photos to wet you appetite to make it next month.
