Classes for 2018. Open to all makes and models.

Dear Sponsors,

Thank you for your contributions towards the Annual Car Show held on September 21st supporting Grant Me Hope, the Holland Rescue Mission and Solid Rock Ministries. We had a good turnout of 142 paid show vehicles registered and undetermined number of spectators. Next year, our 25th show year, we are changing the format to three “Cruise in” events with no participation fee, goody bags or sponsor awards.  We plan to support one charity at each of the events to be held on the third Thursday of May, July and September.  The dates are May 16th, July 18th and September 19th from 5 – 8 PM. Watch for more details on the three 2019 VerHage Motors Mopar Museum Cruise-ins in our newsletters and on our website.
