Blind Childrens Learning Center
5k Walk / Run 
5-14-19
 
Saturday May 4 2019 we were asked if we would lead off the 5K walk for the benifit of the Blind Childrens Learning Center in Tustin-Santa Ana. Our Member Chris frequents a store in Old Town Tustin and the owner of the store works with the learning center.
This all started back in August of 2017 when Mike Dahlberg told us about a 1921 Nash that they were going to put into a store on old Main St. in Tustin. Some of us came to see the car go into the store and we made a showing with our Mets.
Anyway, Chris does some shopping at the store and the lady who runs the store asked Chris if some of us would be willing to bring our crowd pleasers to lead off the walk and maybe give some rides to some of the kids.
 Of course we Met people aim to please so we joined in. The people at the affair and in the neighborhoods we went through were pleased to see the Mets.
 Those of us who joined in were Kim Dominguez and her friend Dianna, Cindy and Bill Harris, Ken Conner, Nancy Halbert, Chris Di Tommaso, Mike Dahlberg, Marcia Jones and Tony Bilotti.

Floral Park Home Tour and Car Show
April 27 2019 
 
Saturday April 27 some So Cal Met Members that didn't make it to the Unique Little Car Show in Sacramento attended the 27th annual Floral Park Home Tour and Car Show. You webmaster was one who couldn't be at the ULCS so I apologize for having no pictures of the event.
So Cal Metters who entered the Floral Park Show were Chris Di Tommaso, Marcia Jones and her friend Annie, Mike Dahlberg (Kim came later) and Tony Bilotti. Another man not on our roster driving a black & white Met pulled in with us. The car he was driving had a for sale sign on it so no new member and we were all so busy there wasn't much conversation.    : (   
 
Floral Park is a very nice area of Santa Ana with houses custom built for the original owners mostly in the 20s, 30s and 40s. 
Some homeowners open their beautiful homes to the public once a year for Docent led tours through houses and gardens. This year we were treated to 9 houses and 3 gardens. The neighborhood and all homes within are very well kept. Unfortunately but understanably pictures were not allowed inside the homes but the exterior pictures give an idea.

Show entries were Mike Dahlberg, Ken Conner, Chris Di Tommaso, Cindy Harris, Paul VanWig, Kim Dominguez and Tony Bilotti. We were treated by a surprise visit from members Nick and Renee Anderson. Renee has had some health issues and we were happy to see her looking good.
A great time was had by all with the people admiring our Mets and the many things going on at the show.
There were cars 'o' plenty to look at and a gourmet of food and drink to be had.
There were also celebrity guest appearances by Motor Trend/ Velocity show stars Dave Kindig and Kevin from 'Bitchin Rides', Mark Worman, Allysa Rose, and Will Scott from 'Graveyard Carz', Bogi from 'All Girls Garage and Wayne Carini form 'Chasing Classic Cars'. It was two long days of fun!
