For those who are not familiar with the Quarter Acre, it has quaint country setting with trees, shade, and ideal outside seating. The menu is varied, and the food of high quality. For these reasons, it is very popular with people out of town, other car clubs, as well as locals on the Kapiti Coast. The large car park is also well appointed, on a large flat area, with plenty of space.

The American Car Day will once again be held at Trentham Racecourse on Sunday 5th February 2017, and it would be great to have a good number of Capital Corvette members and their cars present at the event.
