Cedar Rock businesses worked together to host the second annual Start Of Summer Cedar Rock Classic Car Show on Saturday, June 15. Door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and voting for the top five vehicles were all part of the day’s events.

Rockford’s Start of Summer Celebration was celebrated on 14 Mile Road with a Classic Car Show hosted by Cedar Rock Café and West Michigan Collision & Mechanical. The event was held last Saturday, June 15th, and 45 classic vehicles, motorcycles and electric cars were on display for photos and inspection. “This is the second year for the show”, said Diane Seyferth, owner with her husband Joe, of the Cedar Rock Café , “and this year’s show is double the size of last year’s! We plan to make it an annual event”.

The show was coordinated by Julie Martin of THEM MISFITS and included auto racing parts sponsors Summit, Speedway, Classic Industries and Rock Auto Parts. Door prizes from local businesses were drawn for participants throughout the day. Proceeds of the 50/50 raffle were donated to North Kent Community Services. Owners of the top five vehicles, as voted by participants, were awarded plaques. A Best of Show award was also presented and it went to Gary & Sandy Seabaugh Cronkright for their 1934 Ford Tudor.

Valve Cover Car Racing took place on a portable race track at the event. Small race cars made with valve covers for car bodies raced down a ramp to the finish line. Some creative application of valve covers made for impressive looking and fast little cars.

John Ross, owner of West Michigan Collision & Mechanical, said, “This is our first year in business and we are pleased to join Cedar Rock Café as hosts. We look forward to next year and hope to increase the number of vehicles on display to 75 or more. It’s been a fun day for everyone and a great way to celebrate the start of summer!”
