February Event:
Tour of Collectors Car Corral


On Saturday, February 23, member Robert Leininger has arranged for us to visit Collectors Car Corral, in Owings Mills, MD, for an informal tour of the facility, where over 100 vehicles are stored.

"CCC is a high-end vehicle storage facility dedicated to providing a state of the art, highly secure, safe, clean and climate-controlled environment for automotive enthusiasts to store their vehicles."

The two buildings have a showroom feel with additional cars stacked in the back. There are many high-end exotic cars and antiques/classics that we will be able to see, as we meander on our own through the facility under the watchful eye of Robert, who will serve as our chaperone and docent. We will also finally be able to see Robert's beautiful cars: a 1967 Camaro RS convertible and a newly acquired 1971 Buick Riviera GS, which
he keeps at CCC.

After you've enjoyed your time mingling and viewing the cars, you can have lunch on your own at one of several nearby eateries. Since weather is unpredictable, we decided to avoid the complication of arranging a group lunch commitment that could potentially have to be canceled at the last minute due to inclement weather. Instead, we will provide you with a list of options, including destinations such as the Gyndon Grill, near historic Worthington Valley and Sagamore Farm, which affords you the opportunity to take a scenic drive through horse country if you so choose.

For those interested, President Lou will identify a reconvene time and place to lead a caravan to Home Anthology, in Catonsville, MD (along/near the route home for many of you) to visit this large midcentury modern antique furniture shop. Home Anthology has a LOT of neat stuff to see, (albeit a little pricey). Or you could choose to go there yourself at your leisure.

If Mother Nature chooses to threaten us with stormy/icy/snowy weather, we may have to cancel the event, as there is no snow date (but we would reschedule a future visit). If it is at all iffy out there, keep an eye out for email alerts from us, or call the club hotline at 240-270-CARS (2277) to find out if the event is canceled. We will make the call by 7AM the day of the event.

RSVP: Please RSVP to StraightEightsPresident@gmail.com by 6PM Friday, Feb 22 with the full names of those
people attending.

WHERE: Collectors Car Corral: 10 Music Fair Road Owings Mills, MD 21117
(Optional) Home Anthology: 91 Mellor Ave, Catonsville, MD 21228

WHEN: Meet at CCC 10:30 AM. Tour goes until about Noon-12:30 PM

DIRECTIONS:
1. Take your favorite route to the Baltimore Beltway, I-695.
2. Use Exit 20, MD-140/Reisterstown Rd NORTH toward Garrison
3. Go about 3.5 miles and turn LEFT onto Painters Mill Rd
4. Go another ΒΌ mile and turn LEFT onto Music Fair Rd.
5. CCC will be on the LEFT
For those coming from the south: if you would like to avoid the Baltimore Beltway, we suggest you take
US-29 north, then as you approach MD-100, switch your GPS to the "avoid highways" option. This will take
you through the Ellicott City/Woodstock/Marriottsville/Randallstown back roads (adding 15-20 minutes to
your commute).
