APRIL CP MEETING
The April CP meeting was held out on the patio at Mimi's.
The weather was very pleasant. So the time has come to try and bring the
Panteras to the meeting. The next meeting at Mimi's will be Tuesday, June
The new Go Kart place, RPM, at
Bradshaw & 50 will be the location of the May CP meeting on Tuesday,
May 13, instead of Mimi's. Rick Moseley is working out the
details of the evening. The cost will be between $40-50 per person, maybe
lower if Rick has enough interested people. So get set to go karting in
May! Details to be e-mailed as they develop.
Rick Moseley brought, as his guest, his friend Ardis Bow.
She is a graphic designer . She will be helping us with the development of
the new club logo. Thank you, Ardis, for bringing order to our chaos. Those
members not at the meeting missed the début of John McNamee's latest
Pantera shirt. It was a limited production run of two shirts. John
and Glenn Cramer were perfect models, straight from the pages of GQ,
driving up in Glenn's Ferrari. It would be a great shirt to wear in Las
Vegas, Reno, or Monterey! Hint Hint!
Jim & Emilia Seiferling will be
representing CP at the POCA Fun Rally , Las Vegas. This
year will celebrate the 30 year anniversary of POCA. Special
attendee will be Tom Tjaarda. There will be a big raffle at the
Saturday night banquet. I think every member should buy some
tickets. Let us know and we will buy them for you and arrange to get your
The June 21 CP drive to Villa Tuscano Winery is developing into
more than just a lunch outing! We will be meeting at John McNamee's house
at 11:30 am, then form a convoy to Villa Tuscano Winery. Lunch will be
about 12:30 pm. Then we will be off on a tour to be worked out by John
McNamee and Harley & Michelle Hubbell. We will then return
to John's home for a BBQ. So everyone can start thinking about who will be
the designated driver for the day. Maybe a coin toss would be a fair
system? The winery will "cone off" parking for us. So gas up the
Pantera (or other go fast car) to be ready for the outing.
Concorso Italiano is approaching sooner than you
realize. It should be a wonderful weekend of cars! PCNC usually
has a few rooms available at the Los Laurels Lodge for other Pantera
people. But the number is limited and is going fast. Carl has the
details on who to contact for room availability. Contact Carl for details,
thank PCNC for their efforts in making this a great Pantera
The weekend at Bodega Bay has two couples, besides John
Worsley, set to go. There is space for more people. Please contact
John ASAP for details and to reserve a spot. September 12-13.
John has a lot of fun ideas for things to do that weekend.

NO PANTERA CONTENT, BUT INTERESTING
During the week of March 23rd., Emilia and I were in Beijing and
Shanghai, China. Traffic there was unbelievable!! The
drivers in New York and Boston are meek and conservative by comparison.
This was the only exotic car we saw for the entire week. It is a
Mitsubishi 3000 GT. Guess that makes it a genuine "rice rocket". There is
little or no opportunity to drive this car to its full potential.
