OCEAN CITY, Md- Sunday marked the final day of the Ocean City Cruisin‘ Car show with cars from the 60s, and 70s and some real relics from the 30s and 40s on display around town.
Car owners say they wanted to put their best foot forward and spent hours polishing and styling them to catch the eyes of onlookers and contest judges.
One owner won an award for how well his 1940s car was preserved. he tells us that he wants the public to see and experience the vehicle,
and that while his might be museum quality; cars are meant to be driven.

“1940 was the last year they made them I take it out every chance I get and they shouldn’t be kept in a garage or hidden you need to drive it,” said David Busse, who won an award for the best-preserved car for his 1940s Lasalle. 

For others- the event is a chance to reconnect with relatives- and pass on a tradition to a younger generation.
 The owner of a 1969 Camaro Bob Gish says he’s been bringing his car to Ocean City for over 20 years, and it reminds him of learning to work on cars with his father.
 Sunday, he brought his son down to Ocean City, spreading the appreciation for taking a seat behind the steering wheel, and getting taken back in time.

I grew up working on vehicles and started at a real young age and it just reminds me of growing up working on stuff with him and now to be able to share that with my son has really been wholesome,” he said.
