Tri-County Cruisers take home honors at rescheduled car show in Mechanicsville
After a rainy start to May, 130 participants and their rides came out for the rescheduled East Coast Drifters’ annual car show in Mechanicsville.
Held May 15 at the Mechanicsville Moose Lodge, the event was especially successful for the Tri-County Cruisers Rod & Custom Car Club. Its members took home awards in many categories — including the trophy for top club participation.
In the top 60 were Tony Hall’s ’84 El Camino and Paul Harris’ ’70 Cord Convertible. “Best Work in Progress” was awarded to Gary Sutphin for his ’41 Willys Coupe. Jim and Barbara Morris’ ’47 Dodge won first place in the “Rat Rod” category, while Bill Bushey’s ’69 Econoline with green body and flame murals took home first place in the truck segment.
Proceeds from the event will benefit local charities including hospice organizations, Wounded Warriors, Thanksgiving dinners for the needy and more.
