Mother Na­ture has not been very kind to the car show crowd in 2017 but that all seemed to change the sec­ond week­end in June. The cold, rainy weather and dis­mal fore­casts gave way to a Satur­day and Sun­day of bright sun­shine and tem­per­a­tures ris­ing into the high 80s and low 90s.

The 15th An­nual Mohn­ton Navy Yard Car & Bike Show, an an­nual fund rais­ing event pro­moted by the Mohn­tonCumru Lions Club, was held on Sun­day, June 11. About 130 cars, trucks and mo­tor­cy­cles reg­is­tered for the event and com­peted for tro­phies in ten classes in ad­di­tion to the Pres­i­dent’s Award and the cov­eted “Best of Show” honors.

This year’s winners were as fol­lows:

Best pre-1948: Char­lie Boyer - 1934 Ford 3-Win­dow Coupe

Best 1948-1957: Cal­lie Henry/Shane Ott - 1954 Chevy Be­lair Cus­tom

Ja­son Youtz’s im­mac­u­late 1957 VW Bug cer­tainly at­tracted a lot of at­ten­tion as it sparkled in the June sun­shine.

Heads turned as Shane Ott pulled onto the Navy Yard show grounds with his five-win­dow, mega-mo­tor street rod.

Here’s some­thing that you don’t see ev­ery day, a 1940 Ban­tam Coupe! This one is owned by Gary Wit­moyer.
