Merry Christmas  



Cadillac History:


"It is a road tester's cliché to describe in dazzled awe the Splendid Sensations of Driving a Cadillac-and yet the cars silence, responsiveness, and sheer comfort exist and must be recognized"  So the adman barked of the new 1965's. It must have worked.

The three millionth car was built on November 4, 1965 and production for 1965 was 181,435 cars. 





Did you know you can NOW read the Tailfin right here?!!

Get them while they Last!

Doug has ten commemorative t-shirts left over from the 33rd Annual BOPC Show. These are white, heavy-duty shirts with the logo on the front and the large BOPC graphic on the reverse. He has only XL and XXL remaining. These sold for $20 at the show, but can be had for $10 until they run out. Just give Doug a call, or send him a check made out to Peach State CLC.




  Events For The Month Of December 2014 





First Friday Cruise-In, Downtown Canton GA (On Going)

Get ready for Canton's Downtown celebration, called "First Friday," which gets rolling around 4:30 PM on June 6th. They block off downtown Canton and have a street fair with lots of classic cars. Food, cars, friends, free time to hang out and talk the talk. 

May's First Friday was really great. But June 6 could be the biggest and best ever, with the combination of show cars and beautiful bikes.  Activities Director Tom Di Nucci said, "I believe if the weather holds this will be the best one ever! Great food, music and a fun family night out." 

Due to the large crowd expected, we are asking anyone who would like to show their vehicle to get there by 4:30 and to please stay til 9:00 PM. With large groups of people walking the streets, it's the only way to keep things safe. The Hoagie Shop will be open until 8:00 that evening, so bring the family and come on down (or UP)!





2014 December



 "Fall" Driving Tour - Christmas at the Biltmore -December 5, 6 & 7 Fri, Sat and Sunday

 Our tour is being hosted this year by the Allante Club. Paula Vopelak, who is tending to the reservations, tells me we have NOT been good about booking our reservations. I know there's been a LOT going on, but the deadline for registering was YESTERDAY!!! Paula and the gang will be forgiving if we act immediately! Please download the two pdf flyers and fill the registration form out. You will not want to miss this special driving event, and the Biltmore should be splendid heading into the Christmas season. Deadlines for room reservations and payments are in the flyer, and they are CLOSE! So please do not delay. Make your reservations today!

 Fall Driving Tour to Asheville and the Biltmore estates. We will join about 14 of Peach State’s Allante' folks for this three-day, two night tour. The decorations should be out for this holiday season, and it will be beautiful!   


Hotel rates have significantly gone up for the Asheville area, but the group is working to get the best rates. The Residences of Biltmore are $179/night (group rate). We are also working with the Biltmore Group Sales for hotel rooms. We may use Grey Line tours for shuttle buses.

This Month's Picture Gallery Car's Belong To:

Bill Marsh

1958 Cadillac Eureka Flower Car 1 of 1!

Bills says of his latest purchase;

Actually I was looking on eBay for an Autronic eye for the Biarritz and found this.

It is a frame off restoration, Senior car grand prize winner AACA, incredible restoration. But a mechanical fuel pump and it vapor locked as we were coming back. Also has a bad shimmy, so off to the alignment shop as soon as they opened the next day.

This is the only 1958 Cadillac Eureka Flower Car in the world. 

Watch for this rare Cadillac Professional Car at an upcoming event the year!
