Tonka Cruzers last Car Show of the season 8/22/15

Betcha been wondering why no update of my Blog lately – me too, no one to blame but myself just a big procrastinator! I had to catch up on a mess of other “stuff” to do my Blog.
My last show for this season is this coming Saturday August 22 with the remainder of the drawing prizes to be given away. There will be bakery goods compliments of the new Kowalski’s Market which recently opened on the former Mason Motors lot, great store be sure and give it a try while in Excelsior.
It sure seems that the car season is going by so fast but there still are a lot of events left.
Just put a new set of tires on good old Mildred my '49 Ford – Diamond Back Wide White tires from Samaritan and gotta say what a difference in ride, handling and feeling of safety. Blake Dean from Samaritan told me a couple of the old tires almost fell apart upon removal.
Besides doing my shows, attending other shows and I have setup Cars for Girls Night out in Excelsior, Chanhassen 3rd annual Night on the Town festival and am know working on an Assisted Living/Memory Care Car Show [3rdAnnual] at Wealshire of Bloomington on August 26th.
Next will be the 7th Annual at Minnetonka Assisted Living just off Williston and Minnetonka Blvd in September which is a big event. 
Here is my listing which is in
Tonka Cruzers Excelsior Car Show – Last Show for the season - donuts provided by Kowalski’s Market! Free Entry, lots of great door prizes [random drawings] at end of every show.

June 13 Tonka Cruzers Car Show

Don't miss the June 13th Car Show - Art on the Lake is Saturday and Sunday so good place to be cause parking is at a premium for that event and while at my Show you can wander on down [if so inclined to the Commons to check it out].

 Pictures of 1st time cars for from the June 6th show are attached. Of course new set of drawings at the end of the show - I have some more great gift certificates but ya gotta stick around to noon for the prize drawing!

Thanks all who attend and nice to see some new interesting cars every time.
