BUCKHANNON — The West Virginia Strawberry Festival draws in car enthusiasts from all over West Virginia, and even surrounding states annually, to showcase everything from war vehicles and classic cars, to sports and muscle cars at the annual Classic Car Cruise-In.
The West Virginia Classic Wheels Car Club (WVCWCC) partnered with the WVSF once again to bring endless joy and entertainment to car enthusiasts of all ages. A relatively young club, WVCWCC was created in 2010 as a non-profit organization headquartered in Buckhannon, West Virginia. The club is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of automobiles of the past. Memberships span all ages, as well as many surrounding counties. Any funds raised by the club are donated directly to families in need, charitable organizations, and civic activities.
This year’s show brought in an impressive 184 cars of all brands and models—the largest turnout ever recorded for the WVSF’s Main Street event. Entries came from as far as Charleston, Maryland, and one car even had California tags. Locals flooded the streets to get a closer look at all the amazing cars and trucks.
“We would like to thank the Strawberry Festival for the cooperation and for all the effort they put into having one of the best shows we’ve ever had,” said WVCWCC President Jim Gifford. “We would also like to thank all the EMS and law enforcement officers who took the time to make sure everyone stayed safe, and the club members and participants who helped to make the show so great!”
The club already is looking forward to Strawberry Festival 2022 and has the Labor Day Show in the works, planned for July 24 on Main Street. Keep an eye out for future announcements regarding shows and events.
