Custom Car Club to kick off weekly antique car cruise night


April 17, 1996|By Bonita Formwalt | Bonita Formwalt,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

A FINAL POLISH with a chamois cloth. The purr of the engine as it idles. Shifting into gear, they head west. Soon others join. Heads turn as the caravan proceeds through the streets of Glen Burnie. Suddenly a child cries out.

"Mommy, aren't those pink fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror considered a visual obstruction?"

Like the first robin, sighting pink fuzzy dice heralds the end of winter and the return of the Lost in the '50s Custom Car Club to its weekly cruise night.

To celebrate another year of cruising with antique cars, and custom autos, the club is having its Kick-Off Cruise Nite, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at the All Season Cafe & Deli on Dorsey Road.

Golden oldies, trophies and 50/50 raffles will add to the fun.

Richard Mooney, club president, invites car owners and spectators to come "take a walk down memory lane" every Saturday night through September.

Information: 987-6613.

Breakfast-car wash benefit

Harundale Presbyterian Church welcomes the community to a pancake breakfast and car wash, 7: 30 a.m. Saturday on the church grounds, 1020 Eastway.

For $4, guests can enjoy a menu of pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice and coffee. The cost for children 8 and under is $2.

After breakfast, members of Harundale's Boy Scout troop will wash your car for a $3 donation.

Proceeds from the morning's activities will benefit the North County Habitat for Humanity.
