May 1st Tour

If you think you may be interested in attending the May 1st tour, I've posted the information below.

The Pacific Coast Chapter tour will be held on Saturday, May 1st. Bert & Sonia Babick will be our hosts and have planned a day of tire kicking, driving and old fashioned fun. Bert has arranged for a block of ten rooms to be set aside at the Best Western hotel for anyone wishing to arrive early or stay late. The club rate is only $89 a night if you mention code number "Durant Motors". Please make your reservations early as the cutoff date is the 23rd!

The tour will start from the hotel parking lot at 9am and return sometime around 5pm. Don't forget to bring a camera and for those of you planning to drive your car (modern or antique) please consider bringing a FM walkie-talkie. They provide an excellent way for us to keep in touch with an average range of 2 to 5 miles. I'll bring two, one for the tour leader and one for the tail gunner.

If you have any questions contact Bert at starcar22@earthlink.net or (707) 553-8391 or myself at rick@durantmotors.com.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.
