Late October

TCMG Loses A Beloved Member

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Deana Roth. Deana with her husband Gene have always been a common sight driving their gorgeous TC to events all over the Western USA including our annual Conclaves and GoF West.

There are no services planned, but cards or letters may be sent to their home address as listed in the club directory.

Ilene Wimer Passes

Ilene Wimer  passed peacefully on October 2 in Cedar City, Utah.  She and her husband Doug, who passed in 2009, were very active with TCMG, and remained members for nearly 50 years.

Doug was president multiple times, Frank Mason Award winner four times, and quite the event planner for TCMG.  He was also involved in organizing one of the GRAB tours.  Ilene was very supportive and was actively involved in all of this.

New Regalia Items!

We are pleased to announce several new TC Motoring Guild regalia items for the Fall season.  Be one of the first to get them!  Once supplies run out there will be a wait for the next batch, so don’t miss your chance!  New items include:

  • T-shirts based on vintage TCMG artwork and logos
  • Lightweight hoodie sweatshirts (now available for pre-order)
  • Heavyweight hoodie sweatshirts (now available for pre-order)
  • T-Shirts with all new TCMG artwork to be (hopefully) debuted at our October Meeting

Photos and other details on these items are posted on the Regalia Page.

hanes-programOur next monthly meeting will be held on November 22.  TCMG member Garret Hanes has recently moved his restoration shop to a new location where they work on Cobras (real ones!) and other exotic classics.

valley-relicsOn Saturday, November 12, take a trip down memory lane with a visit to Valley Relics Museum in Chatsworth! The museum chronicles the history of the San Fernando Valley from the 1800’s through present day, focusing primarily on the urbanization and pop culture of the 1950’s through 80’s. The collection includes photographs, neon signs, cars, bicycles, old documents and more.

Our day begins appropriately with breakfast at Bobby’s Coffee Shop, a local icon in business since 1949. Then a short driving tour to the museum followed by a visit to an old-time soda fountain for treats!

Meet at 9:00 AM at Bobby’s Coffee Shop, 22821 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills, 91364. We will depart for the museum at 10:00.

October Event Recap: The 60th Annual TCMG / ARR Conclave in San Luis Obispo was enjoyed by 50 members and guests with 13 TCs and some other classics including a J2.  Join us next year for our return to the mountains!  Photos and a more detailed recap will be posted to the Conclave Pages soon, and will also appear in the next newsletter.

For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.
