MORGANTOWN — Have you ever had a vision of yourself sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that you’ve always wanted or a car that simply looks cool? Maybe a ’63 Thunderbird or a Chevy Corvette C5 for example?
This was the perfect opportunity to do it.
With schools coming to a close and warm weather here to stay, rain or shine, downtown Morgantown was filled with people of all ages, as well as cars.
Wednesday May 16, the Dream Machines Car Club held its 2nd Annual “Cruise-in” on High Street with cars ranging from the early 1950s to as recent as the late 2000s.
This was a chance to show off your car without judges or bystanders basing their opinion off competition.
“The event allows people to get a look at downtown Morgantown in the evenings when most people have left work and students are out of class,” said Tom Milam, president of Dream Machines Car Club. “Unlike other shows, this allows them to talk with people and become familiar with the cars.”
As many lawn chairs as there were, most were empty while their owners interacted with local businesses and other families.
Even while school is in session, the club holds events across the northern regions of West Virginia, from as early as April until mid-November.
“It’s a great opportunity to look at the cars, talk to the people that own the cars and get familiar with them,” said Harold “Swifty” Shaver, a resident of Morgantown.
The next cruise-in in Morgantown will be held June 1, at the Burger King on Patteson Drive.
