Street Cars of Desire car club hosted its annual Country Cruizn Car Show June 9 at Taneytown Memorial Park to raise money for veterans.
With 104 cars on display, and hundreds of spectators in attendance, the show raised $2,635.
The day featured music by local band Wylde Fire, which donated its time; games; approximately 20 vendors; a Maryland State Police communications vehicle; an appearance by Captain Dee Fense, a Ravens superfan; and the Orioles and Ravens cars.
A muffler rap was held, with Marvin Glass' 1957 Corvette winning for the loudest vehicle and Kevin Leap's 1967 Plymouth winning for the nicest-sounding vehicle.
In addition, the perennial favorite game, the TP Toss, was played with both children and adults taking a chance to sink a roll of toilet paper into the custom toilet for a chance to win a prize.
Fifteen plaques for the "finest" were awarded. They went, in no particular order, to: Vincent Perticone, 1940 Ford; Ken Laughlin, 1964 GMC pickup; Mike Rapka, 1930 Model A Ford; Bernie Smith, 1933 Dodge sedan; Roger Fountain, 1953 F100 Ford; Bob and Rhonda Grove, 1966 Mustang coupe; Janet Hartwell, 1932 Ford coupe; Greg Walker, 2001 Ford Mustang; Dennis Benner, 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix; Scott Large, 1968 Dodge Charger RT; Mark Weamer, 1969 Camaro; Mike Myers, Harley Davidson Custom; Scott Martin, 1979 Jeep CJ7; Norman Barker, 1968 Chevy Surburban; and Donna Howe, 1956 Ford FBird pickup.
