Friday, July 27 was a beautiful day for a car show during Chelsea’s annual Sounds and Sights Festival. Hosted by Chelsea Classic Cruisers, over 314 cars attended from across south-east Michigan.  The residential streets of the historic downtown were lined with cars and trucks from the 1920’s to the 1970’s and from the elegant cruisers to muscle to street/rat rods.

On the corners of East Street and Middle Street, Billy Mack and the Juke Joint Johnnies performed rock-n-roll tunes on the Roberts Paint and Body stage.

Chelsea Classic Cruisers is a group of 20 couples plus two individuals ranging in age from 36 to over 80 who own Classic cars from a 1914 Baby Grand Chevy to a 1986 Chevy K10 Silverado Pick-up and many different things in between.

Members live in Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Grass Lake, Jackson, Manchester, Pinckney, Stockbridge and Ypsilanti.  The club has been doing car shows in Chelsea for over 20 years, and organize Cruise Nights at Wendy’s in Chelsea on the first and third Tuesdays of June thru September.

If you have any questions about the club please contact club president, Vickie Kaiser at vkbaskets@comcast.netor 734-649-1106.
