Car collectors event in Roch.?

Start your engines.

The Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau kicked out a press release Tuesday evening saying an announcement about a big car collector event to roll into Rochester.

They are going to fill in the blank on Tuesday.

Hhhhmmm… when car designer Steve Saleen was at Rochester Ford this past summer, some of the collectors said the national Saleen Ford owners club was looking at Rochester for its 2008 convention.

Maybe that's it…or maybe not. I've been wrong before…actually at least once already this morning.

Enough speculation, here's what the RCVB has planned for its announcement Tuesday:

The RCVB will hold a press conference at 10 a.m., Tuesday, April 15 in the Atrium of the University Center Rochester, 851 30th Avenue SE in Rochester, to announce a popular national car collector event will be coming to the city this summer.
Scheduled Speakers
Brad Jones, Executive Director, Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau
Paul Grandsko, Business Manager, Eaton Aeroquip Performance Products
Bruce Miller, Publisher, Hot Rod Magazine
Joe Hughes, President, Stewie Cruisers Car Club
Don Supalla, President, Rochester Community and Technical College

We'll find out next week what hot wheels are on their way.

Winona gets the 2009 Mini convention, Rah Rah lost out on that one!

Go, Speed Racer!

Hot Rod magazine's Power Tour will be stopping in RahRah over night June 12th. It's been advertised for a few months. National (world wide) exposure for Rochester.

Lee is right on the Hot Rod tour. That's been known by the hospitality community for months. Good to see the convention bureau getting the word out to the general public though.
