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

More than 100 par­tic­i­pants gath­ered May 29 for the third an­nual Mary­land Vet­er­ans Memo­rial Mu­seum Car and Bike Event, which raised funds for the New­burg mu­seum.

Hosted by East Coast Prostreets, the show in­cluded awards for many rod­ders — in­clud­ing mem­bers of the Tri-County Cruis­ers Rod & Cus­tom Car Club.

Paul Har­ris’ ’70 Cord Con­vert­ible, Tony Hall’s ’84 El Camino, Ron Weaver’s ’62 Cadil­lac and Mike Tomp­kins’ ’69 Ca­maro placed in the top 60. Tomp­kins was also pre­sented with the first Jeep Monachino, Jr., Memo­rial Award for his ded­i­cated sup­port of the hot rod com­mu­nity.

An au­to­mo­tive painter and body man, Monachino was a mem­ber of the Tri-County Cruis­ers and other lo­cal car clubs be­fore his death in June 2011. De­scribed as “a friend to all” in a press re­lease, Monachino’s mem­ory lives on through the award now pre­sented in his honor. Rick Gen­try and Lula Todd pre­sented Tomp­kins — also a close friend of Monachino’s — with his tro­phy.
