If you love Cars and Motorcycles, there is only one place to be this weekend, the 22nd Annual East Coast Indoor Nationals. This is the largest Pre-1973 All American Car & Motorcycle Show on the east coast! There will be cool muscle cars, classic rides, antiques, hot-rods, drag cars, and custom motorcycles displayed.
The show is not just for gearhead enjoyment, it has a special mission to raise money for ‘Toys for Tot.' Last year the show raised over $20,000 to buy toys. Let's hope this year they are able to break that!
Special guest Candy Clark will be in attendance, from the movie “American Graffitti.” $10,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to those taking part in the show. There will be auctions, a live DJ, and a vendor area for getting that part you need. Santa will be in attendance for children. It should be a great time for everyone! Be sure to stop by and maybe I will see you there.
Show Admission: $12, Kids 6 & Under Free
Where: Maryland State Fairgrounds, 2200 York Rd, Timonium MD, 21093
R&H Toyota will be holding their 1st Annual Car Show tomorrow, July 16th. There will be great activities and events taking place, all for raising money for the Children's Guild. A wonderful organization that serves the needs of children with trauma disorders, autism, or disabilities in the Maryland and DC area. What was the impetus for starting the car show? “We moved our service location from Reisterstown Road, and people didn't know where we were. We decided to put on a car show and donate the proceeds to a worthy Charity. The Children's Guild was an excellent choice.” says Jan Braverman coordinator for the event.
The show will include over 100 different vehicles of all kinds. There will be Ferraris, Porsches, motorcycles, hot-rods, and imports at the show. Mobil1 will have a racing simulator setup for attendees to try out and they will bring their NASCAR race car to display. Shell will also have a racing simulator and their race car as well. (A certain blogger is definitely going to try out both racing simulators.) An automotive rotisserie, which aids in car restoration, will on be display as well. R&H Toyota and R&H Mercedez-Benz will be setup with booths, raising money, and selling items for the Children's Guild. All participants in the car show will receive a goodie bag and dash plaque. New cars will also be on display from R&H if you are in the market for a new vehicle.
The show is Free for attendees, and it will be a great event. Remember it's not just about cars, it supports the Children's Guild.
