For more than ten years, the “Corvettes on Main Street” Car Show has brought the pleasure of seeing vintage Corvettes to a wide audience. This will be the case again on Saturday, September 17. This show joins another car show on that date — the 23rd Annual MOPAR Muscle Show, which takes place at Kaiser Brothers Chrysler Jeep Dodge from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Corvettes on Main:
The “Corvettes on Main Street Show will be presented, according to Wayne McPheron, a member of the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club, by the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club (SVCC), in downtown Muncy. The SVCC is expecting around 150 Corvettes into downtown Muncy. The cars are parked on South Main Street from Penn Street down to the North end of town.
You can enjoy seeing some beautiful well-restored Corvettes from the 50s up to the new mid-engine models.
As in past years, there will be cash prizes and medallions for the Corvette classes C1 through C8. The SVCC will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1972 model year Corvette with a separate cash prize and medals.
This is the 14th year of the show in downtown Muncy. The SVCC uses the car show as their annual fundraising event. To date, this event has raised approximately $150,000 for a scholarship fund at Pennsylvania College of Technology. The scholarship program, established in 2014, is for local students from an eleven-county geographic area who major in automotive mechanics or auto restoration. In addition, the SVCC has made donations over the past years to other local charities.
According to McPheron, downtown Muncy is a wonderful venue for this event as the area is a perfect backdrop for the cars. Everyone loves the small-town atmosphere of the downtown area. In addition, the Muncy Borough plays a very important part in assisting the preparation for the event. Adding to the event will be several food vendors located behind the main Muncy Bank office at the corner of East Water and North Markets Streets. This year the presentation to award prizes for the class winners will be held at approximately 2 p.m.
As noted previously, the 23rd edition of the MOPAR Muscle Show will be taking place at Kaiser Brothers Chrysler Jeep Dodge, and this event will include judging for 20 classes of cars and will have food, music, and door prizes. Registration is $20 on the day of the show. You can register on site from 9:00 a.m.-noon. Awards will follow around 3:00 p.m. There will be plaques for oldest/youngest drivers, Hard Luck and Longest Distance. Also, goodies bags for the first 100 cars to arrive! Rain date is September 24th.
When asked how he and his family got involved with Mopar, Steve Kaiser Jr. said, “It started with my father and uncles in the late ‘60s, drag racing a 1963 Dodge Max Wedge. The Mopar brand has been a part of our family from the drag racing days to the two CDJR dealership locations we operate today.” When asked how they got involved with the Muncy Car show, Kaiser responded, “I heard that the Mopar Muscle of Central PA car club was looking for a new place to hold their growing car show, and I had to be involved. This will be our 12th year having our show together.” Steve Kaiser Jr. went on to say that they always get a great mix of vehicles from old to new. All proceeds will be donated to Camp Victory and local families in need. “It’s a great time,” said Kaiser.
All Mopar, Jeep, & AMC cars and trucks are welcome.
