Since our car show and swap meet were canceled this year and the July 4th parade canceled as well, we need some action. For my neighbors in and around New Braunfels, TX, I suggest an unauthorized "drive around town" about 10AM on the 4th, just honking horns and waving the 50-star flags!! New Braunfels Car Club members should pass the word.Other parts of the USA, do the same. NO politics, please.

Any pictures?

Good question. How was the turnout? It is getting frustrating with no events to go to. Vernon,Tx even cancelled their cruise this year.

Since we were circling the plaza, it was difficult to count the participants. My wife and I drove the topless 1958 red and white Corvette and our friend drove our 1968 red el Camino around and around the bandstand circle, witnessing about 20+ cars, trucks, several motorcycles,and one large car carrier. Many US flags were waving and horns blasting to a small crowd of 30 folks who had come early for a political rally. I had hoped to involve the local car club with a call to its president; however, we saw only one other classic car in the impromptu parade.

The Comal County Fair has been cancelled and probably the parade, so this might present another opportuniy. I shall do better next time. Maybe a Wurstfest parade. Again, no politics as we need to unite rather than divide. Car horns and dual exhausts could help unite us,I surmise. Warped and losing tread, I remain Larry Browning Mauldin

It is pretty sad that nearly every event has been cancelled this year, Except for our local car show coming up the 1st of Aug. So far it hasn`t been cancelled, which surprises me.

Just saw this post, and as someone who spent 3.5 years at Randolph AFB, I would have loved to be there. Travelled to and thru NB many times in my 57 BA hdtp on way to Canyon Lake. Now have 55 210 which I drive to NB. Hope everyone had good time.
