Satur­day on Main Street in Up­per Marl­boro is a busy place — es­pe­cially with the ad­di­tion of clas­sic ve­hi­cles. The Marl­boro Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment and Ledo Pizza hosted the 11th an­nual “Cruzin’ Main Street” car, truck and bike show Aug. 27 to ben­e­fit the de­part­ment and Li­ons Club of Up­per Marl­boro.

More than 130 rod­ders and cy­clists, in­clud­ing mem­bers of the Tri-County Cruis­ers Rod & Cus­tom Car Club, ar­rived in late af­ter­noon be­fore traf­fic was closed at 4 p.m. Own­ers staged their ve­hi­cles along Main Street at an an­gle with hoods up for judg­ing. So many par­tic­i­pants this year re­quired an over­flow lot and use of an ad­di­tional street.

With oldies mu­sic play­ing up and down the street, the mood of a 1950s-era stroll was set. The pub­lic en­tered to take in the va­ri­ety of show cars and bikes, and judges set out to in­spect reg­is­tered ve­hi­cles. Points were awarded for wheels and tires, en­gine, trunk, in­te­rior, ex­te­rior body ap­pear­ance and more.

Show awards were an­nounced and tro­phies pre­sented later that evening. Among the win­ners were Tri-County Cruis­ers mem­bers Bill Bushey for his ‘57 Ford panel truck and Jim Mor­ris with his ‘47 Dodge Rat Rod. Each re­ceived a judges’ award tro­phy and gift card from Ledo Pizza.

Jay Tucker — a Tri-County Cruiser, mem­ber of the Marl­boro VFD and chair­man for the Prince Ge­orge’s County Fire Com­mis­sion — helped co­or­di­nate the event, as did Jeff Wyvill of the Up­per Marl­boro Lyons Club.
