Hamil­ton brings tro­phies back from an­nual Ocean City car show

The Calvert Recorder - Southern Maryland Automotive Trends - - News -

Two tro­phies re­cently came home with Roger Hamil­ton, a lo­cal mem­ber of the Tri-County Cruis­ers Rod & Cus­tom Car Club, af­ter Cruisin’ Ocean City’s an­nual car show, held May 19-22 at the beach.

Nearly 600 ve­hi­cles and 3,500 reg­is­tered par­tic­i­pants — the high­est in many years — took part in the 26th an­nual event, with Hamil­ton rec­og­nized for his ’ 69 Ca­maro.

Hamil­ton, also an in­spec­tor for the Na­tional Street Rod As­so­ci­a­tion, has par­tic­i­pated in the event since its in­cep­tion in 1990. He and his brother, the late Clyde Hamil­ton, made the trek to Ocean City to join 192 ve­hi­cles for that first car show. Now with triple the par­tic­i­pa­tion, this year’s event took two full hours for ve­hi­cles to pa­rade down the board­walk and onto the in­let.

Hamil­ton’s ’69 Nassau Blue Ca­maro with white stripes won the grand fi­nale award, pre­sented by the Town of Ocean City, as well as a 6-foot­tall House of Kolor’s “Kus­tom Krew” award.
