Congrats Drifters!

A great day for the Drifters at Motts car show. Drifters won Club Participation Award. Mike Cabot, Paul Kakis, Mike Vidal Best Paint, Gerrit, Dave 52 Chevy wagon and Paul Garcia all won awards for their specific categories. Paul Garcia also won the Mayors award. I guess we can start calling Paul the Mayor. Photos courtesy of Gerrit. Congratulations to all. Great Job Drifters.
