This will be a joint event between the Pinto Car Club of America, and the MCCI. This will once again be a “Pinto vs. Maverick” Challenge. The club with the most cars in attendance will get to lead the caravan through town on Saturday. The weekend starts with a Friday Night Cruise In on the square in downtown Painesville, Ohio from 5pm to 9pm. Meet at Painesville Veterans Park on the square, 72 S. Park Place, Painesville, Ohio 44077. On Saturday we hold our annual Mini-Meet in Geneva-On-The-Lake. Geneva-on-the-Lake is like driving thru a strip of restaurants, bars, shops, amusement rides and gaming from the 1950′s and 1960′s right on the beautiful backdrop setting of Lake Erie. “The Strip” is packed with visitors in the summer and we will be parked at the park just a 2-3 minute walk from the strip… fun for the whole family! We have reserved a large pavilion with grills for a picnic just behind the displayed cars in the park, located at 5045 Lake Road East (SR 531). Picnic Lunch at Noon. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the fixin’s provided. If the year of your car is odd, bring dessert. If the year of your car is even, bring cold side dish (no electricity). Bring your own beverages. Door prizes, music, top 3 awards, and fun! This event will begin at the “Chops Grille and Taphouse” parking lot, 1752 S. Broadway, Geneva, OH 44041, across from the Motel 6 at the S.R. 534 exit off I-90 at 10:00am SHARP and we will leave in caravan style. We’ll caravan 5-6 miles to town, thru “The Strip”, to the park. Held rain or shine. The caravan of cars will leave at 3pm from the park and “cruise” to Annabelle’s Diner in Mentor, Ohio (20 miles west) for a well attended Saturday night cruise-in at a super cool 50′s Diner for dinner with a live band.
