(Hillsborough, NC): Phillip Walker and Randy Myers are pleased to announce that Mr. Chip Lofton, owner of Strutmasters.com has become the owner of the CCAF following the 32nd edition of the event.  Ownership and management was transferred in late November, following the 32nd edition of the event.  Plan are to move the event to Roxboro, NC where people will not have to fight the traffic around Raleigh, nor have to hunt for parking.  Everything will be readily available at the Strutmasters.com facility in Roxboro!

“The opportunity to have someone like Chip Lofton come on board and help take the CCAF to another level will allow more time for Phillip and I to enjoy retirement”, said CCAF Show Manager Randy Myers. “Chip is a car guy himself with several collector cars in his stable and his background in the car business as well as his company, Strutmasters.com, puts the perfect guy in charge of the event. I plan to do everything I can to help with the transition and I hope to be with Chip for at least a show or two, Myers said.

“I am very pleased that Chip Lofton and Strutmasters.com will be leading the Carolina Collector Auto Fest into the future” added Walker. “Chip’s background and his company make him a perfect fit for the CCAF. Randy and I will work to make this transition smooth not only for Chip but also for all our vendors and show car participants and we look forward to seeing the improvements and enhancements Chip and Strutmasters.com have in mind”, Walker added.
