WE BEAT THE RAIN


Not a drop of rail fell on any of the autos on display at the 9th Annual Renaissance Euro Fest, held Saturday, October 7th. Although heavy rain was forecast for early afternoon, none fell. We had to move the awards presentation from 4:00 to 1:00 to make sure we could get all back to their cars before the rain had started. We had some cancellation from down south and many had the courtesy to call and lets us know. We fully understand that others had plenty on their minds to worry about!

BICENTENNIAL FRIDAY DRIVE


The Friday drive was the biggest yet. We had over thirty cars escorted by the Ridgeland Police Department and the Rankin County Sheriff Department, who did a great job conducting and coordinating the event. The drive went up the Natchez Trace, around the Barnett Reservoir, across the tressel, across the dam, back to the Trace. Many of the autos then took position for a group photo.

FERRARI FEATURED MARQUE


On the 70th Anniversary of Ferrari it was chosen as the Featured Marque and 12 beauties were on display. Also featured were three newer models brought over by Webb Collums of Ferrari Maserati of Atlanta. We thank Webb and all of the other dealers, Paul Moak Volvo, Mercedes-Benz of JX, Porsche of JX, MOTORCARS of JX, VW of JX, Audi of JX, Jaguar of JX, Land Rover of JX.
