Quartermasters Car Show 2017
The Quartermasters 2017 Car Show – July 9, 2017 on route 381 Brandywine Road. Their annual July Car, Truck, Bike, & Rat Rods show is always looked forward to by the Tri-County Cruisers Rod & Custom Car Club. Stan Proctor, President and coordinator of the annual Quartermasters show with the help of his Club members put on their annual show. With music in the background and the delicious smell of fried fish, crab cakes, hamburgers and hot dogs wharfing through the air, 109 show vehicles registered, entered the field and parked. Approximately 15 additional great show vehicles arrived after 2:30. They were too late to be registered and to be judged, but were all friends to the other rodders. They were there to support the Quartermasters Club.
Show vehicles started coming in as early as 8 a.m. It was hot, in the upper 80s but on that flat field it felt much warmer in that bright sun by the time the award presentations were announced! A number of participants brought their own tent covers, knowing how hot the day would be and sat in groups enjoying shared friendships and the competition that kept arriving right up to award time!
The Top 60 trophies labeled “Very Special Ride” were presented by the Quartermasters Club to winners for this show. Our Tri-County Cruisers, who showed up in numbers, took their share of those trophies as follows: Tony Hall – ’84 El Camino, Larry Mills – ’41 Willys Coupe, Rose Tompkins – ’69 Camaro, Paul Harris – ’49 Dodge Pickup, Dan Fellner – ’55 Nomad, Margaret-Ann Hamilton’s ’69 Camaro, Ron Weaver – ’62 Cadillac, and Arnold Yochelson’s ’79 Lil Red Express pickup. Rick Kidwell with his ’50 Ford Business Coupe was there but had to leave before the judging.
