August was another great month for the club.
The August driving event had us at Eat at
Rudy’s in Wilmington, followed by visits to
the Drum Barracks, and Banning Museum, in
Wilmington, CA; David Moore TD, Stuart
Meador – MGB, along with Lynn & Barbara
Inskeep, Lois McGovern, and myself, went,
for a total of 6 members attending. I cannot
tell you how many times I have traveled on
PCH through Wilmington, and seen signs about
the Banning House museum, and the Drum
Barracks, and never stopped. Quite a bit of
history there. The Saturday Garage Tech
Session was well attended. We got David
Moore’s TD exhaust system installed in a
little over one hour.
We still have the twice a month get
together at the Olde Ship in Fullerton on
Our next scheduled general meeting is
September 6. We are looking forward to
seeing you there. The program will be:
“Charles George Gordon”. Michelle Ortiz of
Hagerty Insurance will be the program
speaker in November.
Barbara Inskeep and Laurie Lyon-Diaz
are really doing a great job as Events
Chairmen. It is the job of the Events
chairman to publicize the events, not to put
Our next driving event is scheduled
for September 17h. We will be going to the
San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary / Irvine
Ranch Water District Duck Club. It will be a
pot- uck lunch, with the club supplying
hamburgers, hot dogs, and condiments. On
October 22nd there is a planned visit to the
Lions Automobilia Foundation & Museum in
Rancho Dominguez. This will be another Lois
McGovern planned driving event Look for
information in the July and August
newsletters. Please volunteer to host an
event. Our Events Chairs have ideas for
events, and could use a little help
The Inskeep TD has a new coat of black
paint, and is currently at the upholstery
shop. A special order bright red leather
seat and side panel kit was sourced from
Moss Motors. Looks great in the car. .
We used to do a lot of breakfast runs.
Breakfast runs can be added to a month’s
already scheduled event, as not everyone can
make the monthly event date. It can be a
driving tour, or a rally with
questions. They are easy to put on. Step up
to the plate, and plan on putting one on.
To add to that, on the Saturday of
the Garage Tech Session, after the session
at 12:00 p.m., a few members meet for lunch.
A great brain trust, and the greatest topics
of discussion. (other restaurant patrons
have told us so). Gary Crow, Tom Graham and
myself generally attend. It can happen on
other Saturdays as well. We went back to
Hollingshead Deli, 368 S. Main St., Orange,
for lunch after the garage tech session this
month. And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship
in Fullerton, we get together for
dinner, on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Bob Fluehe
and David Moore joined us at the Fullerton
event earlier this month.
Volunteerism is the key to an
organization’s success! We are
always in need of someone to fill a board
position. Board Positions can become
available. Pat Gaston has been added to
Sunshine. As the Star Trek crew
gave way to Star Trek: The Next Generation,
the next generation of VMG volunteers needs
to come forward. Please consider taking a
board position for at least one year.
While it looks like we have a lot going on,
we can always use club members to volunteer.
We would love to see new faces become active
Those of you between the ages of 50 and 70
really need to step forward, and serve on
the board. Your age group is under

The 51st GoF West in 2023, will take
