We had cars from every era!

Marquette, MI  –  June 17, 2017  –  The 8th Annual “Catch the Vision” Car Show and Cruise,  exceeded all expectations bringing all new events to the schedule this year. We saw countless smiling faces and some pretty impressive burn outs.

Car Show exhibitors joined us around 10am to line up their cars in the Westwood Mall parking lot while spectators filed in promptly around 11am. Cars from every classic era were on display as well as a few modern sports cars to mix it up. Despite all of the spectacular automobiles on site, my favorite vehicles were a little more boxy… The food trucks including Midnight Blues BBQ and Superior Mobile Koney, were set up around the edge of the exhibition to make sure the only thing growling today was those shiny engines!

The growling really got going at 11:30am with the start of “Rev It Up”. Major Discount announced the start of “Rev It Up” encouraging all of the exhibitors climbed into their vehicles to show of those engines. It was quite the display as hundreds of engines revved in the lot.

After “Rev It Up” we jumped in to setting up for The “Burn Out” sponsored by Pomp’s Tire. We took all of the necessary safety precautions before hooking up vehicle after vehicle to Crossroads Truck Repair’s wrecker. Great Lakes Radio Staff Member Jerry, got to start if all off by climbing into the WRUP Van and putting the pedal to the metal! Promised there was a lot of noise and a lot of smoke!

Todd and Jerry took over the event once the smoke cleared to start giving away all of our raffle prizes. With over 90 prizes to give away people throughout the crowd went home a happy winner! Free oil changes from Pomp’s Tire and ball caps from Black Rocks Brewery where among the prizes given out. Between handing out prizes, we also announced the “People’s Choice” or “Best In Show” winner. After all the votes were in, the prize went to Jason McCarthy and Marquette Detailing! The Lions Club of Marquette 50/50 raffle went to a car show exhibitors and local resident form Skandia.

He really gave us a show!

As the raffle wrapped up, car show vehicle owners started to pack up for the annual Classic Car Cruise! The cars filed out of the Westwood Mall parking lot to start their tour around Marquette Township to end a great day of fun.

Special thanks to Marquette Township Business Association, Pomp’s Tire, Crossroads Truck Repair, BiggyBy Coffee, and all of our amazing raffle prize sponsors.
