Auto show returns to Flat Rock Elks Lodge with food and entertainment – The News Herald
When it comes to hosting auto shows, the Downriver Wanderers Classic Car Club knows a thing or two on the subject.
Even though the club didn’t sponsor the July 25 show at the Flat Rock Elks Lodge, the band’s influence was everywhere.
The show was sponsored by exalted former leaders of the Lodge. One of those “PERs,” as they are called, is Terry Barrett, who is also president of the Downriver Wanderers.
This was the eighth auto show at the lodge, 26917 Telegraph Road. It was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Barrett said members of his club organized the auto show, while members of the lodge took care of the cooking. In addition to the cars, Barrett said, many people have turned out for the burgers, Italian sausages, bratwursts and other foods that are a big part of this event.
A total of 85 classic cars took part in the show, as well as three motorcycles. The entrance fee was $ 10 per vehicle. DJ Doo Wop Danny spun the records, and the Good Humor ice cream man was on hand to deliver a fresh after-dinner treat.
After all bills are paid, Barrett said the event brought in $ 2,060, which will benefit repairs and updates to the lodge.
