To: All Cruisers,

We were happy to have (14) vehicles from The Early Ford V8 Club attend  CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S on Sunday.  They enjoyed a delightful meal at Phil’s Filling Station Grill before departing on to Jerry & Connie Vincentini’s home in Fountain Hills for their Club meeting and other activities in the afternoon. Due to the many other Events and four days of the GOODGUY’S Show our attendance was down to (119) vehicles of all makes and models.

We would like to ask everyone to keep our long time Cruiser friends, Roger & Mary Mick, in your thoughts and prayers for Roger is fighting a hard battle of severe health problems.  Many of you will remember Roger & Mary sitting in front of their 1965 Studebaker Coupe every Sunday at CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S for many years.
