Pittsburgh Region Cadillac LaSalle Club
From the Desk of the Director
August, 2007


July is finally here and, though it brings what I’ve always thought of as the “middle” of summer entirely too quickly each year, it also brings what I consider to be the peak of Car Season.

In July, summer seems to be settling in. Folks get more creative and selective about how they spend their free time and the need to “recharge the batteries” takes a priority (in addition to getting some of those big projects done — projects we’ve put off for warmer weather!).

So, as people become more choosy about how to spend their free time, car shows and car events seem to rise in popularity as July pastimes. And your local Pittsburgh Chapter of the Cadillac LaSalle Club is ready and waiting to provide you with a varied menu of events from which to choose!

First up, we’ve got the July 7 trip to Hershey. This trip is comprised of an Antique Car Show AND a tour of the AACA Museum. Both are expected to be great events on their own, but together — this is a trip worth making! If you add a jaunt to nearby Hershey Park for some rides (and cotton candy!), you can make a “hat trick” out of the weekend! Please see page 5 for more details.

Don’t forget about the great non-CLC sponsored weekly events. See page eight for details on the Northway Community Church weekly show (Fridays) and the Caste Village weekly show (Sundays) — with these well-organized events, you can effectively “bookend” your weekend with great car show experiences!

Last but not least, our Pittsburgh Chapter CLC spotlight event of the year is coming up on July 21 — our own Car Show at Rohrich Cadillac. Please see page 7 for details. There will be dash plaques and prizes, great food and music, and — best of all — beautiful Cadillacs and LaSalles from the 1930s to the 1990s, along with their owners. I hope you’ll take advantage and attend — not only will you have the opportunity to enjoy these fine automobiles, you also have a chance to network among other Cadillac and LaSalle lovers and enjoy their camaraderie and friendship (and their incredible knowledge about these cars!).

This July promises to deliver on quality car events like no other — hope to see you at an event soon! Until then, drive smart, drive right, drive Cadillac!
