Amelia Islanders love their cars, especially the Amelia Cruizers Car Club! Their 20th Annual 8 Flags Car Show will be held on October 15 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on historic Centre Street in downtown Fernandina Beach. It will be filmed by Dennis Gage, of the nationally telecasted show “My Classic Car” who will also be covering the group’s Meet and Greet on Friday, October 14, at The Surf Restaurant on South Fletcher Avenue, and interviewing those who have cars in the 20th annual show. On Sunday he will be touring the island, filming its waterfronts, beaches, and parks.

“My Classic Car” was developed for TNN and received strong ratings when it aired in 1996, and has been on the air ever since, on DIRECT TV, the channel which broadcasts “MAVTV”, and on Direct TV and COMCAST/Xfinity, the channel which broadcasts “Velocity”. In its 21st season of production, Gage calls the show, “my ultimate job!”

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the City of Fernandina Beach and its merchants to showcase our beautiful seaside town,” says David McConnell, President, Amelia Cruizers Car Club. “It is a great honor to have Dennis attend this event!” For more information visit www.ameliacruizers.org.
