Autos, sidewalk sale headline Periwinkle Place Memorial weekend

By Staff | May 14, 2015

Car lovers and bargain shoppers have a big Memorial weekend lined up.

The San-Cap Motor Club Rims and Fins Auto Show will feature some 70 vintage, classic and modern cars, trucks and motorcycles at the Periwinkle Place shopping complex. The event is in conjunction with an annual sidewalk sale. The May 23 event is from 10 a.m.-2 p.m, with proceeds from donations, auctions and raffles to benefit CROW, or the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife.

Vintage oil can prizes to people’s choice vehicles will be awarded, said Mike Stone, a co-founder of the San-Cap Motor Club.

“We are very pleased with how the Club has been accepted,” Stone said.

Visitors at the May 23 show/sale can expect to admire retro classics, muscle cars, unique rides and exotic, million-dollar vehicles and vintage motorcycles. The fundraising activities at the auto show event include the People’s Choice Awards for Best Car ($1 per vote), along with first, second and third place prizes. Door prizes will be raffled off every 15 minutes throughout the day ($1 per ticket) and a 50/50 raffle drawing at the end of the day will be split between the winner and CROW, the Sanibel Island based veterinary teaching hospital, animal patient rehabilitation center and educational hub. SanCap Motor Club Gear & Wear will be available for purchase, and a 2 p.m. “cruise-off” will close the show.

In addition to superchargers and savings, The Blue Giraffe, Periwinkle Place’s resident restaurant, will be serving “Drive-In” style food and milkshakes.

Prior to the auto show, festivities start at the annual Periwinkle Place Memorial Day Sidewalk Sale. Merchants in the sprawling shopping center offer discounts up to 50 percent. Browse shops such as The Original Chico’s, Congress Jewelers, Cargo Trading Co. and many more, for a variety of unique gifts, brand name apparel, jewelry, art and specialty items such as gourmet olive oils, sunglasses and soaps. The sale ends Sunday, May 24.

Periwinkle Place is at 2075 Periwinkle.
