 Hey everyone!  Here is the latest from ZCCR:

* Sad to say, but
the "official" club driving season is done.  On October 11 we ventured out as a group of around 15 cars to take in the fabulous fall colors of the Finger Lakes. Stops along the way included the Apple Farm in Victor, the Windmill in PenYann, the Abandoned Brewing company, Canandaigua Lake and a lunch stop at Bellhurst Castle in Geneva.  A great time was had by all.  While the club won't be hosting any more drives this year, it doesn't stop YOU from enjoying your car until the road salt flies!

* It is with true sadness and sympathy that
I pass on the news of the passing of Ann Tuttle, mother of member Meg Krenzer.  Please pass on your prayers and condolences to Meg and Mike if you see them.

* We have TWO events coming up in November! 
*On Saturday November 8, we will be heading don the thruway to Buffalo to help member Brian Pokorski disassemble his 1972 240Z parts car.  Even if you don't want to turn a wrench, it will be a good opportunity to see what makes a Z tick, AND where rust can end their lives.  Let me know if you want to tag along.

* On Monday November 17, BERG RACING https://www.facebook.com/pages/BERG-Racing/104759669577865?ref=br_tf will be hosting our ZCCR MEMBERSHIP MEETING at 6:30pm.  Berg is located at 1600 Boulter Industrial Parkway in Webster and is a full build/repair/performance shop for race and street cars.  Service include dyno tuning, engine upgrades and more.  A national representative from PERMATEX PRODUCTS  https://www.facebook.com/permatexusa will be giving a presentation to the club on the great automotive products that they offer and all members in attendance will receive a GOODY BAG of Permatex Products!  ZCCR will be providing pizza and beverage for members. 

* Plan NOW for ZCCR's annual HOLIDAY PARTY on Saturday December 6!  Watch for full details coming in the next couple of weeks.

That's it for now!  Don't hibernate just yet, hope to Z you soon!

Hey Everyone! Here's the latest from ZCCR:


* Thanks to everyone who turned out for our FALL CLAMBAKE this past Saturday at Powder Mills Park. We had a huge turnout of members and cars on a picture perfect day, it couldn't have been better! Fabulous food, fabulous company, fabulous cars. It just doesn't get any better!


* Coming up NEXT: our annual FALL FOLIAGE CRUISE on Saturday October 11. We'll gather in the morning at a coffee spot them depart for ...a day on the best and most beautiful roads the Finger Lakes can offer. Stops along the way will include: apple farm, craft brewery's, wineries, antique/craft shops featuring an extended stop at the WINDMILL FARM & ANTIQUE MARKET near Penn Yan NY. It just so happens that the Windmill is hosting a CLASSIC CAR SHOW that day as well! While we will not be participating in the show, it'll be a great opportunity to check out some great rides along with some shopping. The fall colors will be at peak, and it's the last club driving event of the season, so plan on joining in on the fun! Watch your email, the website and our Facebook page the week of the event for complete details.


* Member Meetings will kick off in November on a bi-monthly basis. We're fortunate to have a local race shop host the event in November AND will have a great guest speaker on hand to share some interesting information with you. Refreshments will be provided by the club. Again, watch for details.


* LAST CALL for newsletter material! The club newsletter is getting ready to be put to press, so if you have anything that you would like included, please get it to editor Sam Hartley ASAP.


Don't let this great stretch of early fall weather fool you! It won't be long before your rides are again hibernating for the winter! So come on! Let's DRIVE.
