Elvis, also known as Heartthrob King Kruc, provided the entertainment for this year’s Fallbrook Vintage Car Club annual kickoff breakfast, held Jan. 23 at the Fallbrook Women’s Club. While he wasn’t singing to 73 million TV viewers, the reactions from the more than forty FVCC women members in attendance will be remembered by their husbands and friends for a long time to come! If the truth be told, a couple of men were actually seen doing a Conga line dance in the back of the hall to “Viva, Las Vegas.”
Eighty-five members enjoyed the traditional breakfast fare produced by the veteran kitchen crew of Fred Ragland, chairman, Marvin VanVoorst, Glen Patterson, Bill Muno, and John Waugh. Connie Ragland worked with Fred for the entire week before the breakfast, buying and preparing the food.
There was no charge for the annual breakfast, but members did have to go through the LouisePatterson gauntlet to ensure they had paid their dues for the year, before they could enter to enjoy the camaraderie of long time and newly found friends.
FVCC President Roy Moosa conducted the short business meeting during the breakfast, and then introduced the Elvis act.
Before and after the event, members wandered around the parking lot admiring each other’s vintage cars and trucks. Women, and some couples, posed for pictures with Elvis alongside their vintage vehicles.
