A Successful Car Show & Swap Meet!


Hey Cruisers! What a difference a month makes! Our January show was the COLDEST we ever experienced and last Saturday it was 25 degrees warmer! And NO ONE complained!

It was such a beautiful day we tied our attendance record of 101 cars and trucks. We were very happy with our first-ever Swap Meet too. We had fifteen parts swappers, with one that came from Fort Lauderdale! We also had lots of new Cruisers and a record number of Rat Rods. Dick and Marilyn Roddie were there with Dick’s 100-plus-year-old Hit’n Miss engine. It doesn’t get more nostalgic than that!

We estimate that at least half of the Cruisers that come to the show bring someone, so we guesstimate that we had at least 150 in attendance. So, a BIG THANKS to everyone that came.

Using the Lake Country Cruisers Divine Ice Cream Gauge, we knew we were doing good. By noon Divine Dave had a long row of folding chairs across the front of the American Legion with Cruisers enjoying Divine Ice Cream on a beautiful warm day.

And along with all the Cruisers, we had a good number of doggies. Dogs so LOVE a car show!

The American Legion was preparing their dining hall for their big Valentine’s Day Party later that evening, but they didn’t let our Cruisers go hungry. Commander Fred Pierce had some of his kitchen staff set up the outside grill behind the building. So, every now and then, you could enjoy the aroma of burgers cooking! You could see the dog’s noses twitching!

When we get a good turnout, Cruisers get a great 50/50 payout. Our 50/50 winner was Larry Row. Larry went home with $250 CASH stuffed in his pocket! NICE! Our 50/50 Runner-up prize was a $50 gift certificate from GC Grillhouse and Dave Bukis was the winner.

Thanks again, everyone!

Our next Lake Country Cruiser Car & Bike Show will be Saturday, March 11, 2023, at the Lake Placid American Legion. If you have car buddies, tell them to get their ride and head on out to the next Cruisers Show.


And thanks to our Biker Cruiser friends, we love motorcycles – ANY kind of motorcycles. We’d love to see more two and three-wheel machines.

See y’all next month!Scott, Pete, and Ron
