Monthly Car Show in Downtown Mint Hill : A Fun Family Event

The Town of Mint Hill and it’s residents can enjoy a Friday evening once a month touring a Classic Car Show from early Spring until November annually.

This custom vehicle is ready to rock n roll.

The local car club the “Mint Hill Cruise In” has 50 or more classic cars on display in downtown Mint Hill on the first Friday of the month between April and November.  On display are classic cars, antiques, customs, hot rods, muscle cars, pick-up trucks and all are great looking vehicles that have taken many of these car enthusiasts months and even years to refinish to their original or custom condition.

Classic car owners Dale Deese, Gene Deese, Roger Kerns and Billy Kiser.

The engines, paint, interior, wheels, chrome, and overall condition of many vehicles is superior and well worth a visit if you are in the downtown area between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM on the first Friday night of the month over the remaining next three months.

The owners are very friendly, they take pride in their vehicles and seem to thoroughly enjoy their hobby, craft and the time it takes to turn these vehicles into classics for all to enjoy.  It brings you back to a different time in America, when life was slower, people were more amiable and gentlemen and their ladies enjoying these machines while mingling with the crowd.
