2012 St. Louis European Auto Show June 3, 2012

This event is a regular part of the Missouri and Southern Illinois Chapter of the FCA annual calendar. It is held at the Frontenac Square shopping center at the corner of Lindberg and Clayton, less than 1 mile south of the exit from I-64. I will post some photos from last year.

Jeff

Itís hard to believe that February is almost over. Just over 3 months until the 2012 St Louis European Auto Show benefiting the St Louis Shriners Hospital for Children, June 3rd 2012. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the show so we have some very special things to help celebrate. Iíll share a few of them with you now to give you an idea of where weíre going this year but you will have to stay tuned for the full picture. To start with this yearís trophies, each year we search long and hard to make them memorable. This year they will be extra special. They are being designed in part by the kids of St Louis Shriners Hospital for Children. Do you need an extra incentive to get your registration in early? This year, if you register prior to May 15th, you will receive a special commemorative EAS 25th Anniversary coin. These full color coins are being minted with our 25th Anniversary logo to help make this a memorable show for everyone. We are working on many other special attractions for this yearís show but as I said, you will have to stay tuned to find out more. Attached you will find the registration form for this not to be missed Anniversary show.
Regards,
Dan Hinkebein
St Louis European Auto Show

I am toying with the idea to have an open party for FClub / FLife members at my home.

It would be a poker run - 100.00 per head no limit of people.

Each car will receive a plaque but would also have to be qualified to show at the European Car Show.

25.00 per person

Whatever is left becomes a donation to Shriners.

Winning hand receives 50% of the poker run pot and the other 50% is for Shriners.

So, Doug just sent me a PM and invited me and the MAR crew to come to STL for this event. He even offered to pay for enclosed transportation for our cars so that we can show them and take place in the first annual FLife poker run. Doug, you are too kind!

What's best, is that Doug said that we can take I've the manor for the weekend, and that he and his family will stay in the red roof inn so that we will not be disturbed.

Even better yet, he is going to bring in a dozen simulators from CXC to keep us entertained. Chas will coach the group, and has even donated a platinum plated trophey of the Pope as a prize for the winner.

I can't wait for this event! Thanks Doug!

It's my honor!

It's the least Chas and myself along with Shriners Hospital can do to reciprocate you donating the 355 to be auctioned off at the party.

Very very generous

saw it, don't really want an AWD turbo, and that one is 2x what I want to spend on a beater track car.

btw, it appears that 996tt's have gone up in value in the last two years...you used to see them under $30k, now they seem to be high 30s/low 40s. interesting.
