If you are a car enthusiast, then Saturday, September 16 is just the day for you, for on that day, three major car shows will take place not more than a few miles from each other in the Muncy area. These are the “Corvettes on Main Street” that takes place in Muncy, put on by the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club, the 24th Annual All-Mopar Show, at Kaiser Brothers, 3360 Route 405 Highway, Muncy, just off Exit 13 of Interstate 180 and the Fabulous Fall Ford Show, at Murray Motors, 85 Griffith Rd., Muncy.
First, about the Corvette Show. The SVCC is expecting around 150 Corvettes into downtown Muncy. Registration will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Cars will be 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 be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1973 model year Corvette with a separate cash prize and trophies. This is the 15th year for Corvettes on Main Street in Muncy. The SVCC uses the car show as their annual fundraising event. The proceeds from the show support their scholarship fund at Pennsylvania College of Technology in the following majors: Automotive Technology, Service, Sales and Marketing, Collision Repair Technology, and Automotive Restoration Technology. In addition, the SVCC donates to other local charities.
To date, this event has raised approximately $150,000 for their scholarship program.
Downtown Muncy is a wonderful venue for this event, as the area is a perfect backdrop for the cars. Muncy Borough plays a very important part in assisting the preparation for the event.
Backyard Broadcasting will be live and on location, as well as Emceeing the day of the show along with Mike Caschera. Adding to the event will be several food vendors located behind the main Muncy Bank office at the corner of East Water and Main Streets.
This year, the presentation to award prizes for the class winners will be held at approximately 2 p.m.
Another great car show is the All-MOPAR Show, featuring Jeep, AMC, and Trucks. There is always a wide variety of interesting vehicles at this show put on by MOPAR Muscle of Central Pennsylvania.
Registration for this show on the day of the show is $20, and registration takes place from 9 a.m. to noon. The award presentation will be at 3 p.m. There will be plaques for Oldest/Youngest Driver, Hard Luck, and Longest Distance. There will be Goodie Bags for the first 100 cars to arrive.
Proceeds support local charities, including Camp Victory, a special camp for special kids.
“We are looking forward to a great show this year; we will have quite a few rare MOPARs present. The MOPAR Muscle of Central PA Car Club does an outstanding job putting this on. This will be the 24th year for the show, and we are expecting 300 MOPARs,” Steve Kaiser Jr., a member of the local MOPAR Club, told Webb Weekly.
Last but certainly not least is the Fabulous Fall Ford Show, hosted by the North Central Mustang Club. They are welcoming all Ford-powered vehicles. Registration will be from 9 a.m. to noon; registration is $10. They will have refreshments, entertainment, door prizes, and a free gift for the first 150 cars!
