 Floral Park Home Tour and Car Show
 
April 23rd 2022 we made another outing to the Floral Park home tour and car show. Floral Park is an upscale residential area of Santa Ana, California. Once a year homeowners open their houses to the public to enjoy. The homes are beautiful inside and out some with breathtaking gardens. There are a variety of food trucks and a little swap meet sort of thing. They also have a small car show at the same time. The Mets that entered were owned by Chris Di Tommaso, Mike Dahlberg, Tony Bilotti, Marcia Jones and Ken Conner.
Another great time was had by all.
 
A couple of weeks earlier Chris, Mike and Tony were entered in the Orange Plaza Car Show. While Orange Plaza wasn't an actual club event. A few of us were there and I'm going to put some pictures at the end.

February 27th
Trip to the Segerstrom Shelby Event Center 
 
Our club cruise for February was a trip to the Segerstrom Shelby Event Center in Irvine California. So Cal Metters along for the ride were Ronnie Bauman and Judy, Ken Conner, Mike Dahlberg, Judy Smith, Patrick Halbert and Tony Bilotti.
We met at Mikes house in Tustin and took the scenic route through Tustin and Irvine to the center. The event center is two floors of darn near every model of Shelby Mustang and Cobras. They also have old coin operated kiddie car rides, lots of neon, old oil cans, a huge collection of beautiful restored gas pumps and then some.
After we looked at everything there we went for another short ride to have lunch before going home.
