hang out. This will also be timely in promoting our upcoming Lone Star 29
Convention. Bill Preston will be coordinating this activity.
A revival of an old program that has not been active is starting up again.
WRENCHES – This is a program where we assist other members that have
maintenance or restoration needs on their Tri-Fives and in turn can enjoy the
same when you are in need. Don Andre and Bill Preston will be the primary
contacts for this program. Let us know and those that can help will show up
at your place to give assistance or advice where needed.
A big part of our website is the FEATURE CAR where you tell us about
your car with a picture in the newsletter. If your car has not been featured
yet, please contact David Graves to get your car in the lineup. We are also
looking for news stories that you may have concerning your ‘other’ car that
you may have that is not a Tri Five Chevy.

event next May. Watch for more announcements as we continue to develop
