It’s impossible to underestimate the love that Americans have for their vintage automobiles, as evidenced by the amazing run of success that the Cumberland Classics events have had almost every single summer for the last 15 years.
Well over 230 people showed up for the final event of the year (presented by a number of different classic car clubs from all over the local area), capping an end to the weekly classic car cruises and shows that had been presented each and every single Tuesday night in Cumberland.
A number of very rare automobiles made it to this summer’s grand finale, including a 1965 Chevy Malibu that Don MacLean of Freeport brought up from Florida – a vehicle that he purchased upon returning from Vietnam more than 40 years ago.
Classic car clubs around the local area have already promised that the shows will be back again next summer, and that they expect that this will become the kind of age old tradition at the generations will be enjoying for years and years to come. With the success that they’ve been having, it’s almost impossible to bet against them.
