The distinguished speaker for the September program was Pauline Issa. Pauline spoke about what it was like to grow up around the family car that she currently drives. Pauline recognized the wonderful help provided to her by the club’s Henry’s Helpers Group that revived her car back in 2021.

The distinguished speaker for Octobber will be Chris Risdon, an Automotive Technical Writer, Historian and Hobbyist. The title of Chris’ presentation will be "Electric Vehicles”. Part one of the three part-series will be “The History of Electric Vehicles”. The following two parts are expected to be presented at future meetings.

The September Tour was to the Pio Pico State Historic Park, the final home of the last California Governor under Mexican Rule.  Please join the October Tour to Arden Helena Modjeska Historic House and Gardens in Silverado CA.

In April 2022, Chuck Mayhew purchased a 1931 Budd Wide Body Model A Pickup that was delivered in pieces. With the help of some club members (Luke Seyer, Charlie Sento, Barry Beckley, and Larry Ryan), Chuck had the truck back on the road in May 2023. Below find some recently received photos of the restored beauty.
