Rods and Rockers at Oasis Bar 'n' Grill
By Nathan Brunet
WHALEYVILLE – Vintage cars and bikes will be joined by a pin-up model contest and a thrill show at this year's Rods & Rockers Fall Car Show at Oasis Bar 'n' Grill on Saturday, Oct. 6.
"This show is open to all 1975s and older hot rods, classics, antiques, rat rods, deadbeaters and vintage bikes," event organizer Skip McGary said.
Most car and bike participants will arrive by 2 p.m. and give the crowd at the fourth annual event an opportunity to view some unique rides. The event concludes at 6 p.m.
Admission is free and food and drink from Oasis Bar 'n' Grill will be available on site.
Registration begins with the event's opening at 11 a.m. and the cost is $10.
That money will be put into a pool of all registered vehicles and the winnings of this year's contest will be split between the top three vintage cruisers voted as best in show.
Winners will earn handcrafted trophies and gift certificates along with the cash prize.
Since the show normally brings about 75 cruisers, the split pot awarded could be upwards to $750.
Along with the vehicle competition, the event's now annual pin-up model contest will be featured as well, in which participants will wear their best hot rod outfit in hopes of being this year's Miss Rods & Rockers.
"These are some of the hottest barn-burning beauties competing this year," McGary said.
This year, Baltimore thrill seekers Christopher Scarborough and Dangerous D will provide entertainment throughout the day with their “Scarred and Dangerous Thrill Show.”
"The … world record holders will demonstrate stunts you won't see anywhere else in the world," the entertainers said on their Facebook page.
In addition to the cars and pin-up competition, Kid David & the Bullets will play rockabilly, surf and rock n' roll.
The event was initially held at Steer Inn Tavern off Route 589, but since its closing earlier this year, McGary, former co-owner of the establishment, moved the car show to its new home at Oasis Bar 'n' Grill on Old Ocean City Road.
