Cruisers honor Wounded Warrior Project

-A A +A

On May 17, the Memory Lane Cruisers held their annual car show in conjunction with the Red Rose Festival held in downtown Lancaster. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the show. We had 44 cars and one motorcycle registered. This is the largest participation in several years.

Plaques were given to the top 25 cars and trucks and to the top three motorcycles and tractors. Specialty trophies were awarded for the Coolest Ride, Nifty-Fifty, Best Original Ford, Best Original GM, Best Original Mopar, Best Engine, Best Interior, Hottest Hot Rod, Best Paint, Best Tires and Wheels and Best Original Truck.

The Best of Show Trophy was awarded to Boyce Cauthen for his baby blue 1957 Thunderbird.

With each car show, the Memory Lane Cruisers honor a specific charity. In past years HOPE Inc. of Lancaster, Christian Services and the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital are some of the projects that have received donations. This year the Memory Lane Cruisers Car Show honored the Wounded Warrior Project. We were proud to sponsor the Wounded Warrior Project and those veterans who are helped by this project. Memory Lane Cruisers donated $1,005 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
