 The CRC would like to welcome two new members to the website and the club:

WELCOME Mike Franklin and your 1994 Corvette C4.............and WELCOME Kimber Ross and your 1998 Corvette C5.......Mike and Kimber joined the CRC at the Moore car show, and their beautiful Corvettes will be enjoyed by all. 

5/18 Midway grocery - CRC WORLD HEADQUARTERS......a decent group for coffee 'n carbs drifted in and out of Midway on Saturday. Steve's dogs stole the show however as shown below. Kimmer's '28 "early" Model A drove in and is lookin' good. Kimmer bought his A at the last swap meet. 

Upcoming this week is Whittier's TOUCH-A-TRUCK on Thursday May 23rd beginning at 9am until about noon. Back parking lot, entrance off McGee south of Brooks. If you have an old pickup and want some fun, come on out. The kids just have a blast. Then on Saturday, May 25th is our show at the NORMAN VETERAN CENTER off East Robinson. If you are coming to help with registration, arrive about 7am, if you are coming to show your car, come in around 8 am - in either case, JUST COME AND SUPPORT THIS CAUSE! Last year, the CALAMITY JANE (Moore) Cloggers just blew our socks off with their performance, who knows if anyone will be there this year, but if the cloggers return, THAT ALONE is worth the trip. 

Three short YouTube videos from Saturday's beautiful morning in Norman, Oklahoma. The first is at Goldsby field where we have coffee 'n carbs on the second Saturday of each month. An experimental plane is shown....  the second is showing the fine serving line in the terminal building...all for $7+ and any proceeds go to Oklahoma Youth Aviation. There is even coffee service at the table while you dine......and third, this weekend is Cars and Coffee at Crest and a big turnout!
Update of action (or lack of action) at the OK DINER in the terminal building at Westheimer Field. 

We all read the Transcript article about an "OZZIE'S replacement" in the old terminal restaurant space. Well, sadly I drove over there today and took these is the same space as 3 years ago when Ozzie's closed, nothing has changed EXCEPT they removed all the tables and prep counters, but painted a new sign. 

I spoke with one of the terminal employees and was told there are some construction contracts that OU is going to be awarding soon, which re-targets the opening date until (with luck) football season. Not a workman in sight. 

CRC joins federation of 12 central Oklahoma car clubs to bring a large regional car show to Yukon...the Okie Nationals are reborn. 

Meetings have been taking place monthly at "Grill on the Hill" in Capital Hill district. Meetings between area car clubs to determine if there is sufficient interest to put on an area wide car show to replace the one that was lost last year at the OKC fairgrounds. The CRC has joined with the coalition of a dozen or more clubs. 

Led by CRC member Sam Klatt and several others to be recruited and announced, the clubs have agreed in principle to do what is surely to be a massive car show at FREEDOM TRAIL PARK in Yukon, Oklahoma on Saturday, October 12, 2024. 

There will be more information to follow as all the details are yet to be finalized, but let us just say that the CRC plans to be very well represented at that show. Thank you Sam and others who volunteered your time to make this a reality. 

A photo of new members Mike and Julie Kreft's work in progress. Are those three deuces peeking out from under the hood? Going to be a sweet addition to touch-a-truck day.
Dateline: Sat April 6, Midway Grocery, WORLD CRC HEADQUARTERS......nice springtime coffee this morning where we had a reunion with Amanda and Abigale (VW bug and VW Thing). They both looked great and it was good so see them.
Coming up April 28th (Sunday) is the car show kick-off for the CRC operated car show season:

-SUN Apr 28 Thunderbird with $2600 in cash

-May 4 CRC/Rose Rock, Noble downtown

-May 25 CRC/Norman Veteran Center

-June 1  CRC/Moore Olde Town show

-July 27 CRC/Food & Shelter Andrews Park, Norman

A great weather morning as CRC members rolled in with lots of classic cars (see the video to the right, and we hosted the Jaguar Club of Oklahoma at breakfast. We had a good "spring style turnout" and with the great weather and Rudy's parking lot that is quite suitable for wandering around, well it was a good morning. Also, Zack drove in a new, yet temporary addition to the club, a green over black 1941 Chevy 6-cylinder pickup. Terry's red over black is a 1942 model but it is very hard to tell them apart. We also set a date of June 14th for a small show and shine at Full Circle Adult Center. We usually have 4-5 cars because they have limited space. If you would like for your car to be part of this CRC community outreach event, please ask Terry to add you to the list. 

Carol's Spring Cruise: The club had its 2024 cruise and it was great. About 15 members and guests made the cruise up near Edmond to the 45th Infantry museum and a burger lunch at S and B burgers in automobile alley afterwards. Carol and Jim do a great job planning and leading the annual adventures. While there, Carol learned about a race car museum in Alma, Oklahoma so get ready for  2025’s cruise!
