Hundreds of people came to the Mountain Cruisers Car Show at Rex Club Days on Saturday May 28. The event was co-sponsored by the Rex Club and Mt. Burney Coffee Co.
There were plenty of really cool classic cars. Ron Conley, president of Mountain Cruisers, said that they had 75 entrees.
Sandy McCullar said that a dozen car clubs from Northern California and Southern Oregon were represented. People came from as far away as Santa Rosa, Napa, and Cool, California.
The show began at 10 a.m. The first seventy-five entrees received goodie bags, a t-shirt and dash plaques. First and second place were awarded in 17 show classes. There were also awards for Club Participation and Best of Show. The award for Best of Show went to Dreu, Ed, and Mary Ann Murin from Susanville for their 1934 Ford Fordor Sedan.
One really amazing piece of history on wheels was this 1901 Oldsmobile that still runs.
All of the cars were stellar. Here are just a few examples:
To add to the occasion, Bobo the Clown was there throughout the day giving out whistles. Nancy Bobo is running for honorary Mayor of Burney to raise funds for a new performing arts center.
The weather was perfect and it was a really great show. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make it a success!
