Day Cruise to Old Car City
9:00AM Saturday May 18
Meet @ Keithsburg Cafe
Greetings Allante' Family,
I am SO SO SORRY that I am so late in notifying everyone of this month's event. We have been moving into our new home and my laptop died!!!
I have have a new one which still needs to be set up but I had to get this out. Again my apologies.....
We will meet at the famous Keithsburg Cafe in Canton at 9 am for breakfast and then drive leisurely to Old Car City in White, GA.
Admission is $15 per person and is premised on one simple rule, no photography allowed. Alternatively for $25 ~ your welcome to photograph to your hearts content. Unless your heart's content is on nude. They have rules about that too.... ("Please no nude").
Old Car City in White, Georgia contains the worlds largest known classic car junkyard. Visitors enjoy the beautiful vegetation of the deep south that is intertwined with the hundreds of cars that reside in Old Car City. Old Car City started as a small general store in 1931 and is still family owned and operated. Come enjoy the Old South environment, folk art, ghosts of beautiful classic cars, and much more! With over 34 acres and over 4000 American-made cars from the early 20th Century, these cars, trucks, vans, and even a couple school buses are placed in such a way as to be ideally suited for photos, videos and custom camera shoots.
Over the 8 decades since first started, thousands of photographers, videographers, ad agencies and media companies have visited Old Car City USA. Popular news magazine and newspaper companies, like CBS Sunday Morning, the New York Times, the BBC and Georgia Public Television, have made press releases and/or video segments and transmitted it worldwide. Its really a photographer's dream with the old cars lying there with the trees, sometimes in the cars. Car clubs love to travel here for a fun day.

We will spend a few hours there if desired. If we get rained out, our alternate trip is to the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville. Admission is $12/person or $10/senior.
Again my apologies for the very late notice but I hope you can make it for the day.
