Had around 60 in attendance.  Pretty good for Philly. Finally getting a good group of muscle car era folks in AACA. Expecting a good showing of Camaros in Charlotte and Hershey. And BTW, our resident Mustang guy, Mark Young,  gave an overview presentation on Mustangs.
Maroman, there was quite a discussion about driving the cars, not just showing.  The most fervent speaker was a Dodge Brothers owner! 👍

Uh-oh, a DB guy at a Camaro meeting? Was it Tom?  I heard he was causing trouble at another seminar about computers.

Never caught his name, but I liked what he said about cars being made and restored to drive.

No, no test. Hopefully,  more interest in Camaros.

He never said who he was or where he was from, and by the time I went to where he was, he was gone.
