The Pinto vs Maverick Car Show Rematch- Sat. August 20th, 2016

The Pinto vs Maverick Car Show Rematch
Saturday August 20th, 2016
Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio

Once again we are rounding up the Pinto Car Club of America (PCCA) with the Maverick Comet Club International (MCCI) for a really fun car show/event. We started a competition last year between the two clubs to see what club could bring in the most cars. The MCCI stampeded the PCCA but the Pintos/Bobcats have called for a rematch!! (Be sure to watch the Youtube "2014 Pinto Picnic" and "2015 Pinto Showdown" for the previous years' events)

Get ready for an action packed day!! We will meet at the Chops Grille and Taphouse Restaurant parking lot, 1752 S. Broadway Geneva, Ohio 44041 across from the Motel 6 at the SR 534 exit off I-90 (30 miles east of Cleveland) at 10am sharp. We will caravan through the strip of Geneva-on-the-Lake with police escort. The club with the most cars will lead the police escort to be determined at 10am.  The strip is packed with visitors in this lakeside resort town that never left the 50's and 60's and last year the visitors stopped everything they were doing to watch and cheer on the Pintos/Bobcats and Mavericks/Comets. It was an amazing spectacle approaching 35 cars in the group!!  Watch for vintage games, arcades, amusement rides, bars, restaurants, and wineries along the strip with beautiful Lake Erie backdrop!!

We show the cars at the Geneva Township Park- 5045 Lake Rd East (SR 531) Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio where we typically get lots of spectators roaming the beautiful cars. The park is a 2 minute walk from the strip with the beautiful backdrop of the Lake Erie Shore.
Here we start the picnic at around noon. If the year of your car is even, bring cold side dish (no electricity) and if the year of your car is odd, bring dessert. Charcoal grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, buns, and fixins are provided. There will be a DJ playing great '70s music in the park during our stay. The MCCI will vote on their favorite PCCA car for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and the PCCA will vote their favorite MCCI for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for cool trophies!!  Phil from Erie will also provide a really special trophy for the Pinto/Bobcat and Maverick/Comet coming from the longest distance. Last year we drew from Michigan, New York, Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania!! Lastly, their will be a special memoriam trophy in memory of the late Jim O'Reilly who started this show with the PCCA in 2007. Thanks Jim and we won't forget you and your enthusiasm for the Pintos and the club!!!

The fun doesn't stop here!!! At 3pm, we will leave the park in caravan style traveling 20 miles west to Mentor, Ohio where we will meet at a well attended Saturday evening cruise-in at a very cool 50's diner with live band for dinner.  (Annabelles Diner) We had quite the presence there last year!!

So come join this fun event that won't disappoint!!! Look for door prizes, 50/50 and donations for the Wounded Warrior Project, dash plaques, window clings, selling event t-shirts, trophies and more!!

Questions now or day of the show, call Rob (216)408-1906 or email: rallytwo@aol.com.
You can also get in touch with me if you are in need of lodging. Most stayed in Mentor, Ohio last year since we finish up here.  See ya there!!!

Well crap. I was going to drive there this year but without my car but it looks like I won't be going at all. At least it's for a very good reason. My dad is coming over to help with the engine swap on the Pinto. I could probably do it myself but two people doing an engine swap when you got to pull the engine & transmission as an assembly it'll be easier for two people. Unless plans change I will be under the hood of the car that day.

Well, Matt, at least that's progress!  Maybe once you get that engine swapped, you can make next year's event and actually bring your Pinto!  I'm thinking along the same lines for next year, but still have a few hurdles to deal with before I'm ready.

Yeah, I gotta get my tail in gear with this car. My Impala needs an oil pan gasket badly and it's not as simple as my Dodge Omni is to replace. So that means having a car to drive while the Impala is being fixed. That and a leaky lower intake gasket due to a poor quality gasket installed to get the car running.
