MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND RALLY RIDE
The first ever "Connecticut Classic Chevy and Cruising With Classic Cars & Hot Rods Memorial Day Weekend Rally Ride" through the backroads of Hamden, Cheshire, Wallingford and ending at the brand new Dino's Restaurant in North Haven took place on Saturday, June 5, 2021. The ride was originally scheduled for Saturday, May 29th, but was postponed due to rain. The event was the brainstorm of club president George Civitelli.
Because the annual Memorial Day Weekend Classic Car Show at Quinnipiac University was forced to be cancelled again this year due to the many issues related to the Covid 19 pandemic, George thought it would be nice to do something to let people know that Connecticut Classic Chevy and The Annual Memorial Weekend Car Show which the club has proudly hosted since 1995, is alive and well! With that said, we are happy to announce that the show will return next Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 29, 2022.
George contacted our good friend Gary (Nevo) Nevola the owner of NeVo Video Productions - Cruising With Classic Cars and Hot Rods (CCCHR) to ask him if he would want to help organize the ride. Gary is very well experienced in organizing events such as this and he and his son Gary Jr., were more than happy to get involved.
Gary also is the host of his own television show called "Cruising With Classic Cars and Hot Rods". The show airs on certain Comcast channels throughout the state of Connecticut. Check your local listings to find out if your Comcast TV service carries it.
After a few meetings and some trial runs, the route was mapped out and finalized. Thank you Gary and Gary Jr. for all your help and expertise.
We want to thank all those who participated in the ride. Also we thank Chief Sullivan of the Hamden Police Department who provided two of his finest officers to escort the ride from start to finish.

And remember The 26th Annual Memorial Day Classic Car Show will again take place on May 29, 2022 (rain date May 30) at Quinnipiac University, 275 Mt. Carmel Ave., Hamden CT. We hope to see you there!

Whether you have owned one or just wished you did, Corvettes evoke glamour, elegance, speed, a little danger, and a sense of American pride. In this book, Harvey Goldstein pairs decades-spanning photos of these classic sports cars with great stories from Corvette owners. As you explore the words and images, you’ll gain a new appreciation for the beauty and engineering of these cars and learn why owning and driving a Corvette is a special experience. Whether opening it up on a straight-away, taking it to a race track and driving around the oval, or just being able to give the “Corvette wave” to fellow owners on the open road, this book captures the fun and excitement of driving these cars―as well as the looks of envy from people driving in mundane sedans!.
