Message from President Mark Mather:

Thank you to all that attended the 2016 show whether you brought a car or were one of the hundreds of spectators.. We had a total of 325  vehicles for your viewing pleasure for our thirty year anniversary. A  warm day with only a very brief shower that didn't damper our fun.  

Be sure and mark your calendar for our Cruise Marshall Event on Friday Night June 2nd, 2017 consisting of more than 200 cars,  and our spectacular Shades of the Past Car Show Saturday, June 3rd, 2017.  We are really excited about our 2017 show and will bring another great car show with more fun filled events, great music,  best door prizes, dash plaques and trophies. This year we feature the band  " STARFIRE"   We look forward to hosting you and your family to a great car and truck  event.  CLICK ON THE POSTER ABOVE FOR ALL 2017 CAR SHOW DETAILS INCLUDING REGISTRATION !!
