Fire Department to present car and truck show


August 15, 1994|By CINDY PARR

There have been a lot of wonderful events taking place at Reese Fire Department this summer.

Volunteers have kept busy the past few weeks supplying the community with a variety of activities.

First, there was the Reese carnival; then, there was the Old Toy and Train Show.

Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., folks are invited to the Reese Car and Truck Show.

More than 300 antique, stock, muscle and modified vehicles will be displayed on the Reese carnival grounds on Route 140 between Finksburg and Westminster.

Melvin Rippeon, chairman of the event, said many features will highlight the daylong show.

"We will have all sorts of vehicles -- big trucks, dump trucks, street machines, Corvettes, four-by-four's, mini-trucks and street rods," Mr. Rippeon said. "We will also have a monster truck that's coming in, and it will give two car-crushing demonstrations. One is scheduled for noon and the other at 3 p.m."

Local businesspeople in the automotive industry will judge vehicles in 31 classes.

Michael Vaters will be on hand with his black 1991 Ford F-350 pickup truck, known as the "Black Stallion." Last year's "best car in show" winner, Michael Gregg, will also be on the grounds.

Let's not forget Todd Harris and his Castrol GTX dragster.

Food, including hot dogs and sandwiches, will be on sale.

WTTR Radio of Westminster will broadcast live from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Mr. Rippeon is expecting a good turnout.

All proceeds from the show will benefit the Reese and Community Volunteer Fire Department's equipment fund.
