Sebring Cruise and Lunch 2022


Cruise to Zoet's (one of our more interesting events)

We had an interesting event occur while we gathered for our cruise at Zoet’s. Some deranged individual stopped where we were parked and began yelling obscenities to us and told us to leave his parking lot or else. He said it was his parking lot and it was not for car shows and that we should get those f__ing junkers off his lot.

 

He left and returned a few minutes later with an even worse tirade loaded with verbal threats. He threatened to demolish our cars. That led to one member taking a video of the event and I took a picture of the guy’s license plate. Two members called 911 and deputies were dispatched to our location.  Evidently, this guys was known to them as the dispatcher seen to already know the license plate. The deputies talked to all of us, took a copy of the video, and the names of some witnesses. They were going to visit the guy at his home to see what was his issue.

 

In any event, it made for an interesting cruise with many participants. We ended up going to have lunch at Zoet’s in two groups. I apologize to those members who didn’t make it in my pictures.
