***Well folks, I sincerely hope everyone out there has been safe and healthy.  We will not be holding our event June 6 as originally announced.  As soon as we can select a reasonable and responsible date we will be updating the information here.  At this point we are looking toward the end of September or first half of October.  Please continue to check back here for updates and know that we look forward to seeing all our AMC/Jeep family come this fall.***

An event not witnessed since 2013, the 32nd Lone Star Regional and the 9th East Texas AMC Cruise-In will combine forces in Lufkin, Texas on June 6, 2020!  Time to spread the word among the AMC and Jeep faithful folks, we need your help getting the news out there!  For those unfamiliar with this event, click one of the links below from 2012 through 2019 to take a peek at what you've missed:

I can't really sum it up better than I already have in years past, so this may look familiar, but add to it that this is a combined event and the last time we did that several years ago the turn out was huge!
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. 
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 I know those folks welcome the challenge to their long distance award streak.)

We hope to 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 again 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 LSR/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 and we did roll several in there last year 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 and registration form will follow.

Feel free to contact us with any questions: Reagan Ratliff: 936/225-0569 or
