I can't really sum it up better than I already have in years past, so this may look familiar:
This has been described as the most comfortable car event most folks have ever attended.  We'll have plenty of sun and plenty of shade, cars are parked on grass, not hot pavement (unless we have to substitute the event location due to weather, which thankfully hasn't been required yet), plenty of good food, plenty of good friends, plenty of good cars and Jeeps, plenty of parts, this is the AMC place to be in June.  Last year our swap meet area was again packed with parts and there are no vendor fees.  Hagerty Insurance was in attendance again to offer lots of valuable advice and give quotes to our attendees (and some great freebie items ; ).  
Always remember, whether it is a trailered show car, a survivor original, a work in progress or even if it's not running or you think it's just too ugly, 
"Drive it, Drag it or Tow it!", all are welcome!  And we mean that.  Please, bring them out and share them, people really do want to see and appreciate your vehicle.  We have had folks come in from several surrounding states to participate and attend.  See if you can come and win the Long Distance award this year (a hint: you may have to come from further than Mississippi Wink and last year it was very close between a couple of our participants from over there.)

There is a possibility that we will have some live entertainment this year, though there are several factors that will dictate that in the final run-up, but fingers crossed it won't all be music from cd's this year, stay tuned for developments.

This year we are on the first Saturday of the month that also coincides with the monthly Lufkin Cruise-In at Ray's Drive-In on North Timberland Drive, so for those that can't get enough car events in one day, here is another for that evening.  You'll have a couple or three hours after we wrap up with the ETCI to roll back to the hotel for a nap or drive around Lufkin (downtown antique and boutique shopping) before heading to the Cruise-In that gets going around 5:30 or so.  I'd love for us to roll in there representing the red, white and blue en masse Wink
 
A little bit about our location.  Lufkin, TX has a population of over 35,000 and is a hub for East TX and the surrounding area, fairly centrally located between:

120 miles north on Hwy 59 of downtown Houston

85 miles south on Hwy 69 from downtown Tyler

175 miles south-east from downtown Dallas

165 miles east of Waco

125 miles east of College Station

120 miles south-west from downtown Shreveport, LA

160 miles west of Alexandria, LA

175 miles south of Texarkana, TX/AR

300 miles north-east of San Antonio


We look forward to seeing all our old friends and making new ones too.  More details and our show flyer will follow.

Reagan is right on my friends, you will be had pressed to find a more enjoyable car event. AMC people, good food, millions of dollars (more or less) worth of door prizes. Now possibly live music  ??? Rock on in the AMC World !!!!!!!

Having AMC Fun,
Ollie

See folks, and he's not even a paid endorser...well, other than a fine free lunch that my wife prepares, but now everyone receives that so...Wink
Thanks for jumping in with a reply Ollie.  We look forward to having you and Teresa back again this year.  Folks, if you haven't met this couple they are the Road Warriors of the AMC world and represent the faithful all over the country throughout the year.  We're certainly glad y'all have made the ETCI a must attend event each year.
