November Meeting Summary
November, 2022 by Pat Whissel
Plant City Meeting and Car Show
The November Olds Club of Florida meeting in Plant City was great. There were 18 members and two guests—we were happy that Dave and Joyce Schmitt’s in-laws could join us.
We met for lunch at the Whistle Stop. What a neat place! They sat us in the “Car” room—wonderful decor with lighting from suspended car hoods, license plates from across the United States on the walls, booths from truck tailgates, and more. The food was terrific. Everything served hot and quickly. After a brief meeting, we adjourned to the Train Station parking lot near some beautiful Oldsmobiles.
Almost all members in attendance drove their Oldsmobiles. Some of us pulled out chairs and sat near the cars catching up on each other’s news while others (mostly the women) went shopping at the unique, quaint shops around town. (Sorry, guys, they did support the local economy.) Many wandered out to explore the car show to see all the different vehicles throughout town.
Leo and Karen Stutzman were excited to drive their 1953 Fiesta—yes, it’s finally running in top form and back on the road after about 15 long months. John Day drove his Oldsmobile wagon. Pat and Kay Higgins, Ron and Alice Gaither, and Paul and Kerri Berman had their 442’s. Dave and Joyce Schmitt and Sylvie Nevenkin represented the Cutlasses. Bill and Carol Adams, Mark Haberkorn, and Don Shrout also proudly drove Oldsmobiles.
The weather cooperated, too. It was the perfect day for a car show. If you missed it, we missed you. We hope you will join us next month in Spring Hill.
