Marquette, MI – June 16, 2018 – Marquette Township’s“Catch the Vision” Car Show and Cruise returned for its ninth year on Saturday, and it was a clear hit! Tons of people showed up to see all the classic cars, win some prizes, and have a great time. Major Discount was on the scene to tell you about all the excitement.
The Major had numerous guests on the air, and they were all eager to tell listeners about the day’s events. Today’s Car Show started around 11am as the Westwood Mall parking lot filled up with classic and modern vehicles. Visitors walked down the lines of cars checking out vehicles from every era right there next to Appleebee’s! Special thanks to Applebee’s General Manager Jerry Velasquez and his fantastic team who helped cook and serve our lunch for all their help and the use of their parking lot!
This year saw the return of a fan favorite, “Rev it Up”. All of the participants let loose and floored their gas pedals! The owner of the vehicle with the best “scream” won one of the numerous prizes that were given away during the afternoon. In a parking lot filled with classic cars, the “Rev It Up” contest sounded amazing and really fired up the crowd!
Following “Rev It Up”, Mike from Crossroads Truck Repair set up his large wrecker as an anchor for vehicles during “The Burn Out”. One by one, vehicles rolled into the spot and chained up their vehicles to the wrecker. Putting the pedal to the floor, each contestant, including the Great Lakes Radio’s own WRUP Van, spun their tires and let the smoke fill the air! Everyone had an impressive display but only one could be the winner of two brand new tires from Pomp’s Tire!
There were many fun door prizes donated by local businesses including Pomp’s Tire, Super One, Quality Car Care Center, Advance Auto, Riverside Auto Group, Tadych’s Econo Foods, Frei Chevrolet, Auto Zone, and Great Lakes Radio! Your Authorized Verizon Dealer, Team Wireless also stepped up to offer a special deal for car show attendees: 20% off any mobile accessory through Sunday on top of their BOGO select smartphone deals! Spectators and participants enjoyed delicious brats from Smokehouse Glenn and Mama Russo’s prepared by the Applebee’s crew and cooled off with some Willy Nilly’s Frozen Treats!
