John Harris Brings his '55  to the Cruise-In

John Harris has an impressively sharp '64 Ford Falcon of which we are all familiar and in which John takes great pride, but the Chevy-Powered 1955 Studebaker he brought to the last Cruise-In at MWC is also a beauty.

Another year to close out hoping for things to improve next year, wondering about the next variant, what it will be called, how to meet it and how to treat it.  Everyone, please remain cautious and stay healthy.   HAPPY NEW YEAR  


We invite you to join us at any of our local events or contact us for more details.
