A benefit to raise money for a children's charity will be held at the end of the month in Johnstown, Philadelphia, according to the Tribune-Democrat.
This is not unusual in itself, but the event being used to drum up support involves lots of classic cars, which should interest auto enthusiasts in the area.
The Mini-Miracles Cruise In is in its third year and is picking up momentum, according to organiser, Jennifer Rose.
It will be held at the local fire department on June 30 and proceeds from the admissions being charged will be donated to the Windber Hospice.
A variety of cars are anticipated to be in attendance at the event, including a Plymouth Duster with 440bhp under the hood and a tuned up drag racer from 1972, with 1029bhp on tap.
As well as offering visitors the chance to see classics like the Plymouth Duster and plenty of custom hot rods, the show will feature live music, other forms of entertainment and refreshment stalls to keep everyone fed and watered.
The Mini-Miracles Cruise In is a great example of how classic cars can encourage people to be charitable at any time of the year.
