Pancho is back and we are going out to get him again. Come join us on the chase for the legendary bandit, Pancho Villa. He is rumored to be camped somewhere along Lake Livingston, north of Cold Springs. We are forming a posse of a few brave men and women to chase Pancho. We will be starting from the East side this time. It is guaranteed to be a run full of twists and turns and full throttle blasts. After Pancho has been thoroughly banished from Texas, it will be time to water our horses at the Ransom’s Steak House & Saloon, Montgomery, TX. Bring your fast car and pray for shine. No rain allowed for this event. On this run, we will cover about 150 miles and it will last about 5 hours including lunch. Pencil in the date now. Please RSVP for this event. We are expecting a large turnout and we need to let the restaurant know how many to expect. This event will be open to all Corvette owners. Bring a handheld walkie-talkie or a CB if you have one. It is always fun so come on out in the middle of winter and enjoy yourselves with a fine group of fellow Corvette enthusiasts.

Smokey and the Bandit
Big Enos (Pat McCormick) wants to drink Coors at a truck show, but in 1977 it was illegal to sell Coors east of the Mississippi River without a permit. Truck driver Bo “Bandit” Darville (Burt Reynolds) agrees to pick up the beer in Texas and drive it to Georgia within 28 hours. When Bo picks up hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), he attracts the attention of Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason). Angry that Carrie will not marry his son, Justice embarks on a high-speed chase after Bandit.
