The Port Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 19th annual Classic Car Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, in downtown Port Clinton. The Jerry Lippus Memorial Car Show is named in honor of Jerry Lippus, “Mr. Downtown,” who organized the event before passing away in November 2007 from cancer.
Cars, trucks and bikes from virtually every era and every make will be on display on Madison Street. Proud owners will be polishing their vehicles and waxing eloquently about the history and renovations of their unique vehicles. A DJ will be playing your favorites from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A 50/50 drawing will be held every hour beginning at 11 a.m. and door prizes every hour beginning at 11:30 a.m.
In recent years, the shows have hosted more than 150 cars and trucks. Vehicle registration is $10 with a portion of the registration fees being donated to the Port Clinton 4th of July Fireworks and Main Street Port Clinton in honor of Jerry Lippus. Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 cars at check-in; and if you register and pay before June 30, you will receive a free T-shirt.
