HI ALL,

It’s been a super-busy month here at Hobby Cars.  I’ve been on the road several days a week looking for Vettes to add to our inventory.  We’ve bought several Corvettes, and sold two before I could even put them in the newsletter for you!  The rest are listed at the bottom of the newsletter, so be sure to check them out.
In between buying-trips, we were happy to make it to our first cruise-in in Hagerstown, MD.  This is our favorite regular cruise-in because it is well-run and draws all kinds of radical customs.  It’s run by the Classic Car Group for Children, INC, who raises money for terminally ill children, and it’s held every Saturday evening at the Valley Mall in Hagerstown.  If you’re ever in the area, you should check it out!

For our first trip to this cruise, we decided to take our “Frankenstein car,” a 1973 Pro-Street Corvette whose restoration we shared with you in February.  We weren’t surprised to see that it drew a great reaction from the crowd.  We’re looking forward to many more cruises to this spot and elsewhere this summer!

Until next time,RJ
