WE LOST A RODDER: STEVEN TATE

STEVEN TATE:
May 16 Steven & his daughter were on their way to a car show, he and his daughter were in an accident.

VISITATION TONIGHT: MAY 21. 6:00-8:00 PM, Martin Thompson & Son Funeral Home, 6009 Wedgwood Drive, Fort Worth, TX, US, 76133

SERVICE: 3:00 p.m. Friday, May 22, 2015 at The Grapevine Convention Center, 1209 S Main St, Grapevine, Tx 76051.

Steve came to many of our shows over the past years, he was a member of the Loose Cannons Car Club. An avid Rat Rod builder and his cars have been featured in many National Magazines and Television Shows. Steve also enjoyed Auto Cross Racing. At Texas Motor Speedway he was known as the "Cone Killer".

If you can drive your classic/street rod/rat rod to the services that will be fine.

Please keep his family in your thoughts – this was so unexpected and has been very hard on them.


SHOW ALERT:
SCHEDULE CHANGES: We have cancelled the Memorial Day Show, we have moved other shows. Please see below & on the web site. We also update our Facebook page events & announcements. You can call 817-797-1197 if you have any questions.

Sorry folks but we cannot control the weather – We have never had so much trouble with weather.


NEWS & NOTES:
As you see from the posting above we lost a rodder. Please be careful out there Rodders are usually very safe drivers because they want to protect their ride however, other drivers cannot be controlled. We have all seen people distracted by looking at a show car, texting, taking photos or just talking on their cell phones. You add all the wet weather and the possibility of hydroplaning and it all adds up.

We know that many folks do not have seat belts in their show cars. There are many articles on the internet talking about the issue. There are also other safety concerns that can be addressed. The newer cars have more safety built in at the factory than we can fit on a classic but doing everything you can to make your show car safer just makes sense. Please be extra careful!

We have moved several shows and cancelled the Memorial Day Show. We did not want to but had no choice. We always update the Facebook page, the web site calendar & this newsletter as quick as we can. If you ever have a questions please call to confirm that a show will still going on as scheduled… 817-797-1197. Cruise Safely!
