Exclamation Joe P. Collins Memorial Car Show

Some of you are aware that my dad passed away last October 2006 from cancer. The good people of a local Hospice organization, Hospice in the Pines took care of dad in his final days and made a profound impact on his life and death and the rest of our family as well. As a way of giving back to this wonderful charity, I offered to step-up and coordinate an open car and truck show with all the proceeds going to Hospice in the Pines.
With that, the Joe P. Collins Memorial Car and Truck Show was born.
I've created classes that I feel will include everyone. I have arranged for nice awards, neat door prizes, cool goodie bags and T-shirts for the first 75 entries. The show site is within close walking distance of Taco Bell, Outback Steakhouse, UFO Pizza Company, McDonalds & Starbucks Coffee, Wendy's, a hotel (Texas Inn & Suites) and ATM.

I realize that few people know where I live here in the small town of Lufkin, Texas (population about 41,000). But I want to extend an big invitation to all my friends in this police car hobby to come and support my first shot at a car show and this great charity in honor of my old Pop. My dad was a good old guy that served during the Korean conflict in the US Navy. He was a scientist and his passion and hobby was cars too! Over the years he owned several new 1978 and 1979 Pontiac Trans-Ams, a new 1977 Corvette and a 2003 Ford Lightning. Dad also restored a beautiful 1966 Mustang GT convertible in 1989 and was intrumental in helping me with the difficult stuff on the resto job of my 1993 Texas DPS Mustang in 2002.
I hope this is an event that some of you will consider. I am happy to recommend a good hotel and great places to eat while you are in town.
