We had a huge turnout at today’s car show put on by the Classic Reflections Car Club benefiting the Honor Flight charity! This is a great cause that gives all expense paid trips to veterans to go see the memorial that was built for them. The Seaside Centre plaza in Indialantic, FL was filled to the brim with classic cars, hot rods, supercharged road beasts, and fancy show cars. There were also two antique fire trucks there still able to pump water and save the day if needed! The nearby Pizza Hut even had a stack of coupons for everyone at the show to go eat lunch there and 20% of every purchase went straight to the Honor Flight charity as well. Judging by the long lines we waited in to get our own pizza it was easy to see lots of money went to the charity today.
We stuck out with our five electric cars against the sea of gasoline powered cars. This caused all of the visitors that walked by to really take notice and ask questions – which we love to answer. One of our members brought his bright yellow Tesla Roadster that got most of the attention from people – and cameras. We even added two new members to our group today: one drives a Chevy Volt and the other a Tesla Model S. So now we have an even larger fleet of electric cars to roll up to restaurants and shopping malls to show them how much more business they could attract if they were to install charging stations.
Here’s a few photo highlights from the day:
