The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes an open show of street rods, street machines, antiques, muscle cars, classics and motorcycles. Proceeds will benefit Life with Cancer and Clifton's own Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program.
“Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for these charities,” said Jim Chesley, president of Custom Cruisers of Northern Virginia. There will be about 450 show cars from all along the east coast, Chesley estimated.
For those wanting to show a car, registration at the gate is $15. Admission for spectators is free, but donations of any amount for the charities is greatly appreciated. Music, food and door prizes will be available. The show goes on, rain or shine.
Since the first car show in 2000, the event has raised more than $190,000 for charities including the Old Dominion Eye Foundation, Children’s National Medical Center and the Fairfax County Police Officers Trust Fund.
Custom Cruisers of Northern Virginia is a local car club "that celebrates the heyday of classic American cars" with car shows and cruise-ins.
