Saturday at the Movies – Ford v. Ferrari

Saturday Afternoon at the Movies November 16 About 30 Roamin Angels showed up to watch the fun and fast paced movie about Ford V. Ferrari and how Ford won the 24 hour Lemans race that put Carroll Shelby on the ‘map’ . It was a great movie and all of us agreed and enjoyed it thoroughly.  A few Roamin Angels met at Big As beforehand and had lunch. What’s Next? “Oildale” – Saturday, January 18, 2020 Click here for more information.

Toy Drive 2019

The Roamin Angels take the motto ‘the show must go on’ very seriously…even in a blustery, cold, rain storm. The 30th Annual Roamin Angels Toy Drive happened on December 7th but it was anything other than ‘business as usual’. In the past, the club has had some pretty tricky weather for the toy drive – snow, wind, rain – but this time Mother Nature had plans of her own with almost a combination of all three.  The first set up at 8am set the pop-up tents flying with the wind…

Breakfast Report

At least once per year we make a visit to Gary Apple’s. We used to call it a garage but really it’s his ‘creative studio’. A group of us visited Gary and his ‘studio’ after a Friday breakfast get together. Through our previous visits, we’ve seen Rare vehicles recreated and re-envisioned all built entirely by just this one man in an absolutely amazingly short period of time. This last visit? Gary’s Father had a mid ’40’s Dodge Power wagon. The family used to go camping with it and it and they…

Back to the Late 50’s

Well my reminiscing time is just about over.  By 1958, many of us were back from the service, and had to have a new ride.  Seems like most of the young people were listening to Dina Shore.  ‘Cuz they was seeing the USA in a Chevrolet.  Part of the old gang came back and some just moved on somewhere else. Those who came back were “Mouse” Gregory, who traded his ’55 Stude for a ’57 Eldorado convertible. “Web” Pierce had a ’59 Bonneville convertible, Dick Morgan a ’59 black Buick…

Sacramento Auto Show
sacramento International Auto Show

David and I have been attending the Sac Auto Show at Cal Expo for the past ten years. I remember the first time we attended when I got free tickets to go and figured “why not?”. We thought we’d spend about 2 or 3 hours and then go out to dinner. Eight hours later, we were exhausted, fed and had had a great time. Since then, we go just about every year. So what makes it so much fun? Well, if you are looking for a new car – they’re…
