Strawberry Festival Show, April 12 - Panhandle Cruisers hosted the 21st Annual Strawberry Festival Show in Loxley, Alabama. The Panhandle Cruisers now feature British classes with unlimited class splits if enough British cars enter – the first time this has been done at any Open show. Lets support them! Other all-car show promoters should take notice!. (See photos in Club Events, www.PanhandleCruisers.org)
