Sweet rides showcased at local show

Huntingtown, MD - One of summertime’s great traditions in Southern Maryland was blessed with ideal weather Saturday, July 2, as dozens of motor vehicle enthusiasts converged on Huntingtown High School (HHS). The 14th annual Night Thunder Cruisers of Calvert County Car, Truck and Bike Show proved to be quite a showcase of wheels with everything from vehicles from the 1920s to modern day, a fancy Rolls Royce to a refurbished tow truck, hot rods, muscle cars, a race car plus a meticulously restored 1956 Ford Crown Ranchero, whose owner documented the lengthy project in a picture book.

There was no shortage of great food as vendors served up barbecue, hamburgers, hotdogs, fried fish, French fries and ice cream.
With a $20 entry and a nominal charge for spectators to access the area, the Night Thunder Cruisers were able to aid this year’s designated charity—Calvert County Food Bank.

If you missed the July 2 car, truck and bike show, there is another planned later in the month at HHS. The next one, July 23, is being sponsored by The Carroll Western Church Trusty Trustees. The show begins at 9 a.m. with partial proceeds going to help support the Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad. On Sept. 10 the Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department’s Car, Truck and Bike Show will be held Sept. 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fox Run Shopping Center.
